My prized bull bellowed in alarm as he was dragged into the spaceship hovering overhead.

Re: In the Firearms Industry, How are you doing?

Short version? It's insanity.

Yes, I have had people offer cash or 'other favors' to skip the background check. Oh, $500, a $1,000 to commit a federal felony for you? Let me jump right on that.

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

NICS ran pretty good today. Still a 50/50 shot without a LTC. I'm about done in though. I could use a couple of weeks of forced staycation. :???:

If you need a smile

This put a smile on my face during a brief moment I had to read something: Here are some people who are useless, especially now: Performance artists, diversity consultants, magic crystal healers, sociology TAs, members of the mainstream media, and gender-unspecified entities who brew kale kombucha. ...

Re: LTC Class "Gathering" of 10?

Had to turn down a 25 person class this weekend. They didn't want to break up into smaller groups.

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

For the long haul, Obama is the sales champion. For single, short period panic...corona for the win. Nobody has seen anything like this.

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

NICS is running 'okay' today. Earlier we were at about 30% clearance rate for background checks, but now it's up to about 50%.

Ammo and guns still being crushed on sales.

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

this doesn't make any sense, the law says at most 3 days to reject....nowhere in there does it say 3.5 weeks. if the rejection doesn't come in 3 days the FFL should make the transfer. Any FFL with considerable skin in the game is not going to gamble their federally issued license. FBI says adhere t...

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

...and we made it to about 11:30 before NICS became unusable. It hasn't technically crashed, but you can't successfully log in either.

So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

Finally decided to buy a firearm during a pandemic? Well, the joke's on you. So did everybody else. To the point that earlier in the week, NICS (the FBI's background check system) was experiencing a 300% increase in volume. In case you're wondering, that's a lot. When old, government procured comput...

Re: Run on Ammo

NICS completely collapsed around 4 PM Central and has not come back.

People want to buy firearms to protect their families. They want to do it lawfully, but cannot because of the government is unable to function in the face of overwhelming demand.

Re: Run on Ammo

If you don't have an LTC, I wouldn't even attempt to buy a gun today. NICS volume is supposedly 300% above normal and it seems like most folks are being delayed. They're giving Brady Dates of Mid-April. Supposedly, because of state offices being closed. The only thing keeping me entertained are the ...

Re: Run on Ammo

Lot of first time gun buyers in the past few days. All those folks who thought that Beto fraud looked pretty cute realized little soy boys and their disarmament policies might get them killed. Tear away the fantasy world they surround themselves with and suddenly nobody wants to be a victim. Just s...
