Handgun Demand: Party Like It's 2008?
I was out yesterday and swung by a local gun store.
I noticed not many new pieces in stock, and the used stuff was commanding strong prices.
I was kind of surprised, I would have supposed that the election results might have allayed some of the buying boom that has been going on since about October of 2008.
I feel a bit sheepish that I haven't been out to a gun store since about last Spring, and was going to ask if this was the experience that others are having as well. Maybe it is just this one store or my particular part of New Jersey.
How is the supply and demand curve for handguns working out for you guys?

I have only been to one gun store in the last month but they seemed to have a normal inventory.
I window shop quite a bit on some of the online outlets and all seems about like it was pre-election. There may be a slight downtick in prices as demand becomes less fear-driven, but I really haven't noticed many changes.

The sales are good or better than pre-election. The SWaMPy Sport II is down to $520. Academy prices are up this week, based on sale flyer on line.
I have much to do and little time to do it.
Who notes Gander Mtn had an accessory he needed, at sticker price, so I bought it.
