Gun shows and buying frenzies. Tam talks about the lack of panic at a recent gun show.
We've seen panics over the past years. We've been through them, we know how they work. She notices that nobody is buying much.
It's been a great decade for gun manufacturers, but as Jeff Cooper so famously remarked; "I have mine." And, maybe that's the key to the conundrum. The gun industry has changed a bit over the past decade. It used to be that we'd go to a gun show to see new things, and get a good deal. Nowadays good deals are everywhere.
I still cruise pawn shops and second-hand shops looking for a good deal, but if it's something I want new in box, I'm just as apt to order it online. It arrives in a week, I go by the FFL to do the paperwork, and everyone is happy.
