Yesterday started slow due to the "major" snowfall of about 5" we had here, the first of the year. However, the day took off about 1100 and didn't really slow down. We did do 3 transfers and a few small ammo and accessory sales. We had a bunch of stuff come in. So what's to report? Well...
The big news is that of all the people in the shop about 25% who were investigating buying a gun were doing so because they believe that Obama will be re-elected in November and will be coming full bore after their guns. Two of these were exclusively interested in buying an AR-15 type rifle. The rest were interested in handguns first, ARs second. In conversation, the boss let it be known that he's already finding some guns harder to get. I suggest that if you want an AR or some other particular gun, if you reload or if you want to stock up on ammo that you do so now. Don't wait, prioritize.

We also have one of the Rossi Rio Grande .410 bore lever actions. This copies the Marlin 336 pretty well but... the butt pad was proud of the butt stock by 1/8" all around, there were waves in the surface of the receiver sides AND it had that dad-gum cross-bolt safety. I would rather have had the old Marlin 36 that came into the shop with rusty exterior and beat-near-to-death wood.
