But those aren't new guns, just existing ones being recycled.

The best numbers for new guns are going to come from manufacturer data.

The number of privately held firearms is great (and I too think the 800M number is probably getting close to reality).... but I'm more excited about an increase in the number of households owning guns. Honestly, 100 people on MDS tripling their personal holdings doesn't do anything for the growth of "the gun culture" (I'll just call it Liberty). But 100 new households making the leap into gun ownership... learning gun safety... taking training... and yes, going through the pain and red tape of the legal requirements for ownership; now that helps our cause!

Honestly I think the 800 million mark is very close or has already been broken. There are some people that will buy 2+ firearms on a 4473, so lets average it out as 3 per 4473. At 3 per 4473, there are 1,050,000 firearms in America. At 2 per 4473, it is still 700,000 firearms in America.

A friend asked me how many guns I owned. I looked at him and said he didn't want to hear the answer to that question. The actual number that I own is nobody's business by mine and Mrs. DA's.

IMHO y’all are missing the mark. Not that it makes a big difference but...my money is on the big B.

I believe we have a billion firearms in this country. At least that.

More importantly, how many different owners are there? Then I’d ask how many of those owners are decidedly conservative? Last question is what percentage of owners, conservative AND otherwise, have any proficiency with a weapon?

Unknowable. Unobtanium. I get it.

Conjecture is the lube that keeps MDS going. Idle thoughts are the fuel.

Just some random thoughts.

To be fair, there are 5 shelves on the unit It is 6 feet wide, 6 feet high, and 18" deep.

I buy ammo in bulk because it costs way less per round that way.

My wife has never been impressed with my unit. The Irish Curse.
