Going to go see how panicked the folks are, see you at the Gun Show in a bit.

Sales were very brisk in WPB. Same amount of attendees, but few tire kickers. Many buyers. AK's, & AR's went fast. GARY

Were the ARs selling the bottom end stuff, the $500.00 versions or were there any buying higher end ARs?

The AR's that were selling were the M&P Sport 2's, as well as the DPMS Oracles. $600 guns. It seems some $499 guns are not factory assembled guns. Rather people [skill unknown] building guns from cheap Chinese parts. They use a name brand lower, & let the customer assume the gun is a factory gun. The M&P, & DPMS guns seemed to be all gone by closing Sunday. I'm also told the Bradenton show did very well. Looking forward to Miami next week. I'm sure the brisk sales were a direct connection to last week's madness. GARY
