Notes from the gun shop...

It was a pretty busy day even if we didn't have the volume of sales we've had since mid-December.  One of the problems is that we have darn little anyone wants to spend money on.  Most of our time was spent explaining why we couldn't get things or didn't know when we would get things that we could order.  We had several cases of Brown Bear 5.56/.223 ammo at $300 per 500-rounds.  Only 2 Glocks remain, only 2 (collectible) Smith and Wessons remain, we have one AK type rifle and one AR type.  Waiting on a LOT of orders.  People are so accustomed to the immediate supply of all sorts of things that they've forgotten what "backordered" means.  Had to explain that 3-4 times during the day.  We had Glock 23 magazines but no Glock 19 magazines.  Have CCI small rifle primers but no small pistol primers of any kind. 

We have a Contender in .357 Herrett and a 10" .45/.410 Contender barrel and that generated a lot of talk.  Lots of people through the shop.  I was glad to get home and off my feet today.
