Boom or Doom? From one gun dealer’s perspective
#1
Great article that goes in line with some of the discussions we have had last night and this morning.

Ranier Arms Blog

Quote:After the tragic events in Newtown CT, Feinstein and Gun control supporters fueled by the media machine, turned our industry in to a craze overnight. Starting Friday the 14th, sales of Lowers, high capacity Magazines and Rifles have sky rocketed leaving our showroom walls and saferooms empty. This particular rush easily eclipses the 2008 rush for “assault weapons” by 2-3 fold.

The average reader will think how great it is (financially) for gun dealers. In the short term, you are absolutely right. In the next month to 3 (I project less time), sales will be at record numbers. What happens when supply dries out? (Which already happened for us on many products). We’ll just get more right? Actually, it doesn’t quite work that way. Starting Friday, not only did consumer sales go up, all the dealers & distributors across the county put in orders to larger distributors and directly to manufacturers. It wasn’t just AR15 dealers but any dealer, pawn shop, etc jumped in and ordered as much as they possibly could. Our industry was already producing at max capacity before the scare so what do you think will happen if demand increased by 10 fold overnight? If things hold true to 2008 standards, product deliveries will greatly slow down. Instead of receiving products, say every month, dealers be lucky to see it every 3 months.

If you think about it, now would be a perfect time for the government to really clamp down on raw materials needed to build more firearms.

I've been meaning to ask you about that. What is your fascination with midgets in cowboy boots anyway?
