The numbers are in for April and it is a new record for the month 3,514,070. To put that number in perspective from the time NICS checks started in 1998 all the way through 2019 no month topped 3,000,000 checks, March of 2020 was the first month to top 3 million.

So far in the first four months of 2021 we have had 15,966,389 background checks and that number already exceeds the full year totals for every year through 2010. As the thread title says there are "A Lot Of Guns Being Bought".

And that's with only scarce, expensive inventory available. Joemala may well usurp Obama's title as Greatest Gun Salesman Of All Time, and win the brand new titles of Greatest Liquidator Of Those Crappy Guns We've Been Trying To Unload Since 2013 and Most Likely To Get People Who Don't Even Own A Single Piece Of Denim To Look Into Black Powder.

I have seen the same trend at Masada Tactical. There is a HUGE uptick in AA females buying guns by themselves.

I'm sure that that is true. It's hard to see from way down in the black pit of MD, but the trend toward Shall Issue and ConCarry is huge, and not slowing down at all.

The Blamtifa peaceful rioting will continue, and has already inspired millions of citizens to become gun owners. It renews my hope that Americans are not ready to bend over and drop their pants for the rioters and their puppet masters.

Having a gun and having the heuvos, never mind training/savvy to use said gun are far different issues.



As mentioned, the more folks who feel the need and follow up that feeling with action in order to be able to defend themselves and their loved ones...THE BETTER OFF AMERICA IS.

And again, what that number doesn't show are the guns bought in secondary non-regulated sales, nor does it cover the number of guns being put together as builds.

I think Biden can talk a big talk, but there isn't going to be a lot of support for gun control legislation - not if they don't want to be voted out in mid-terms.

A lot of folks are getting into reloading in an effort to bypass ammo costs and shortages only to find that there are component shortages that go along with everything else.

Disappointed in us all here... If everyone on MDS did there part we could have reached 5 million for the month.

Until the specific models I want come back into stock, I wont be buying anything else to tide me over

Ive taken a couple pistol training courses over the last 3 months where women were very well represented...AR training they were nowhere to be found, but I am assuming most women are (like my wife) getting a pistol for self defense.

At the current rate 2021 should easily exceed 40,000,000 NICS Checks for the yearly total.

At this time last year they had done 12,156,985 checks. This year 15,966,389. So after four months this year is already 3,809,404 ahead of last year at this time.

The bad news is it looks like the ammo and component shortage and high gun prices will continue.

That’s the data that can be/is tracked... Been said before. Needs to be said again.

Only a subset.

Looks like the common folks smell something stinky and are following their survival sense.

Can’t hardly blame them, can ya?
