How Many Gun Shops That You Know Of...
...have gone out of business due to periods of panic? I thought November 2008 was bad, but this beats it by a long shot. Most manufactures of firearms are now back ordered for 12+ months and I imagine ammo suppliers are right there with them. This can't be good for small shops. They buy inventory in relatively small quantities and if it isn't available they will not be able to replace it any time soon. There was no way for them to foresee the future and stock up on desirable products, so, I wonder how they will be able to stay in business over the next few months. Retailers like Bass Pro sell a lot of different products, so they are not as reliant on firearms as some. One of my favorite shops is very small and I worry that they may have to close if there is nothing to sell.
