Market saturation?

Postby greener » Fri Jan 09, 2015 9:13 am

Gun sales in Virginia decreased in 2014 after three years of growth. I haven't noticed that the prices reflect the decrease in business, but I have noticed the gun shows are not as crowded.

Maybe that's why the governor wants to reinstate one handgun per month.

I saw a similar article. Another report said that VA gun sales over the three day Black Friday weekend were up 12 percent compared to 2013. Maybe with overall sales down, dealers had better sale prices for Christmas time?

From what I read on other forums, a lot of specific guns are hard to find. I see post after post of someone waiting months to get the one they want. That would reduce the numbers in a false way. Proves that the antis are wrong, we're not bullet spraying maniacs that just grab any gun we can get!

I guess the Assembly will soon have McAuliff's list on the table, but I doubt it will pass. You may not have to buy a dozen this year, but the SHOT show starts the 20th, and we'll see what new goodies are coming.

With the market flooded, I wonder what direction the crime rate has gone?

McAuliff just wants to pay back the political favors and financial support he received from Bloomberg.

Yep. Pure political posturing because he won't get it through the legislature.

Not sure on the crime rate but gun/parts prices are way down $30-50 for ar uppers or lowers is fairly common. Complete rifle's are down to $6-700 for base models.
