    1.5 Million FBI Back Ground Checks for Fire Arms Sales in December.

    CNN reported that a all time record was set in December for gun sales with 1.5 million FBI back ground checks.

    http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/27/us/rec...iref=allsearch

    They interviewed a gun shop owner who stated he can't keep guns in stock and that the biggest sellers being the 9mm Glock and AR's/AK's.

    The same gun shop owner also stated the reason maybe that if Obama is re-elected a gun ban will most likely occur.

    NRA stated that people realized that police cant be everywhere and that more police are being laid off everyday so self protection falls onto the individual.

    Then CNN put some douche on saying people should not buy guns just because a ban may come and that those sold were to repeat buyers.

    Going to be tons of guns out there should the SHTF.

    I'm betting there will be (already is?) another Obama panic.

    Personally, I've ordered a BCM upper that I had planned on waiting until Spring or Summer to get. I'm also thinking about getting a Gen 4 Glock 22 for a carry gun so my 9mm's can be put in storage as SHTF weapons. Beyond that, I think another case or two of 5.56/.223 should happen in the next couple of months. I'll get a couple of spare bolts and other accessories as cash allows.

    From the BCM website: "Due to overwhelming demand of Bravo Company Rifles and Lower Receivers we must suspend taking orders until the back log has been reduced. We will again post order forms for new order submissions in summer 2011. Please feel free to check back here at that time. We will again post the order form link. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience."

    They told my local dealer primarily the same thing.

    Lock and load. Git while the gittin' is good.

    Thats why now is the time to act with getting you plans in order.

    Repair and Service all Firearms you own.

    Have Repair parts on hand to service all Hi Use firearms.

    Order all those wish list upper/lowers or complete long guns on your list as demand is only going to increase as election time draws near.

    Ammunition prices have been slipping lately and stocks are rising so buy that extra case or two needed to top off your reserves.

    Remember what happen last Election with all the Ammunition and Firearm shortages!

    Also if you home needs some work to improve door and windows security now is a good time to get those projects under way.

    Now don't default on your bills, but cutting out the fluff for a few months will help free funds to sure up your reserves.

    I believe it is an Obama/Romney Panic. Neither front runner is pro-gun.

    Romney with RINO's and Democrats could get gun-bans (no grandfathering) enacted.

    I don't think Obama could get a Republican Congress to enact new gun legislation.
    Winning may not be everything, but the endorsements are better.

    Or maybe it was just high Christmas demand after four years of a crummy national economy. What ever floats your boat.

    That's the jacked up part. They wouldn't be standing on principle and the COTUS. They'd be doing it to wave the middle finger at Obama!

    I always love a optimist, if your statement is correct then the economy has recovered to the point were people are spending the dollars once again.

    Personally I would suggest that the economy is still in the crapper and the flush is coming. I heard a survey which stated that people were just so tried of having nothing in terms of expendable funds most said the hell with it and charged away this holiday season. If this survey has any truth then there will be a lot of people who will be defaulting on there credit cards when the payments are due.

    But the future is still clouded and those who wait to long will have to do without should the economy collapse.

    While still low, the following is rising: average wages, home sales, car sales. Increases in personal saving are slowing but still well above historic rates. The harbinger of doom (gold/metals) are in bear territory. Europe and China may be a scary overhang, but the U.S. economy in general is in a slowly accelerating recovery. The Wall St crooks are heavily dumping metals and foreign investments and placing their bets in the U.S. It may be cool to keep talking of doom, but the facts show we can grow our way from between the rock and the hard place. This will be accomplished without any idiot in Washington helping. If we can keep Wall St from acting like casino gamblers we are good to go. The US of A is still the best country in the world and the innovative growth engine of the world. Try smiling and and thinking positively. It's infectious. Or is that bad marketing for gun and ammo sales?

    Grant had a thread on this in GD a while back and he got flamed for it. As a retailer he was seeing a trend of certain things being on back order regularly a year ago.

    This month I have completed another rifle, a DDM4V5 LW that I had to order the factory lower seperate from the factory upper. Got it cheaper that way and that particular rifle has not been in stock anywhere.

    We will see the majority of gun owners (you know the guys that are asleep at the wheel) come out of the closet, buy everything in sight, and drive up the prices just like they did in '08.

    Before Christmas I placed several large orders for this exact reason.
