    Gun sales surge fueled by first-timers, mostly for ‘concealed’ pistols

    Mule faced Cortez assures young men that the world is going to end in 11.205783 years. There are movies/advertisements coming out advocating the violent demise of Trump's constituents. Men have been taking lifetime doses of psychotropic and psychiatric drugs.

    For some reason, a forgotten song by a forgotten band comes to mind.

    If Hitler ever arises, he'll come from within the Democrat party. I don't care if someone wants to were a "Blasio for President" T-Shirt but if I wore a MAGA cap in certain quarters I'd be drawn and quartered.

    I bought a billet lower yesterday just in case. I planned on doing a higher end build for comp/3-gun anyway. I doubt buying a billet aluminum anything constitutes panic buying.

    Really I just did what I'd been putting off.

    Prior to us going to work at our new job here in Indiana, the wife and I purchased another rifle. Can't wait to get back home and buy some 5.56 and go "celebrate" our purchase.

    However, we didn't need a shooting to get us to make the purchase.

    Knee jerk political reactions and elections with anti-gun candidates always increase gun sales.
