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.
You forgot the 26 or so Brady exempt states aren't in those numbers for folks with permits.

I just ran some numbers that some may find interesting.

From "Firearms Commerce In The United States Annual Statistical Update 2020" the annual ATF report The latest reported manufacturing numbers are from 2018. https://www.atf.gov/file/149886/download

Firearms Manufactured 2018
9,052,628
Firearms Imports 2018
4,305,851
Subtotal
13,358,479
Less Firearms Exports
-554,237
Total Additional Firearms In 2018
12,804,242

Total NICS Checks for 2018 https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/..._year.pdf/view
26,181,936

2018 NICS Checks divided by Total Additional Firearms
2.045 NICS Checks per new firearm.

This gives a rough gauge of the number of new firearms in circulation based on NICS Checks. No it does not cover all firearms.

This gives a rough gauge of the number of new firearms in circulation based on NICS Checks. No it does not cover all firearms.

So there are twice as many NICS checks as actual new firearms produced or imported. It suggest a few possibilities. More firearms were sold from inventory, some level if NICS checks were for regulated transfers or out if state sales of non-regulated used firearms. Some quantity of NICS checks result in a rejection of the individual, which doesn’t turn into an actual sale.

Don’t forget that used firearms go through NICS, too.

I was slacking last year, I only bought two on the same NICS and one F to F.
I haven't bought any this year, but I will try to correct that error of my ways.

I'm doing my part, I've bought two this year, and expect to get at least two more before the year is out providing I can find what I'm looking for.

Good. The fact that gun rights aren't perceived as an 'old white guy' exclusive hobby can only help our freedoms. All law abiding citizens have these rights.

Like good 'ol 'Mizzippi.'

I'm glad that manufacturers increased production capacity after the past few AR-15 scares - I don't think PSA was ever out of stock on lowers, and the max price only went up to about $100 for a stripped lower.

I sold a rifle FTF earlier this year (hope it is serving the buyer’s needs), and would have a couple more to sell / swap at the next meetup except for.. you know.. the thing.. uh, the thing down there, in uh, Annapolis.
