None of that crap around here!
We know what is priority and it sure isn't to take away peoples ability to defend themselves. Just think of all the liberals that are freaking out and changing their minds. We gotta give them a chance to be right once in a while!! Ya just gotta duck a little more at the range!!

Glad to see that Sheriff D-Bag Villanueva classifies the shops that enable us to exercise our 2nd Amendment right given by the US Constitution at the same level as Strip & Night Clubs...
And forcing closure of these gun shops has as much to do with the "panic buying" as the actual pandemic...
Perhaps he should do us a favor and relinquish his badge and gun and fend off crime with the other unarmed Cali masses...

There are no mandates to close gun shops or ranges in Utah. I haven't seen any closed either.

Gun shops have not been listed as essential in the recent spate of Texas county shelter-in-place orders. As such, they’re effectively closed if within those counties.

As far as I know gun shops in WA have been forced to close. I can't verify because nobody is answering their phones, which could mean either they're closed or they're busy.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

TX AG issued an opinion saying local shelter-in-place orders can't effectively shut down gun shops by not including them as "essential":

I heard Dallas County had already amended its order including them as essential before the AG's opinion came out, though.

Still search for my next blaster ... and I think 450BM may be it. Will absolutely cast and reload for it. Looking at the 300gr Lee 45 colt mold.

LGS has a Mossberg Patriot in 450 for $285. Not bad ... Still browsing the stores.

I really didnít need any supplies or ammo ... just looking for a new toy... and another reason to order new mold and gas checks.

A friend an I were wondering if the shops around here were open (OR), he said he called our favorite shop and they didn't answer. Well they called me yesterday and said they had a SMG45 for me, talking with her she said they were swamped.

That's exactly right! That jackass, democrat Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins put out the order and thank goodness the Governor kicked him in the nads. Superceding that order with his own statewide order making them essential. Gotta hate democrats. When that shelter in place order first was issued I had a brand new rifle enroute to my FFL dealer through Fedex. I was concerned that if my dealer was closed, that Fedex would send it back to the out of state seller. Fortunately for me the dealer stayed open in spite of the order (just before Jenkins back pedaled) and I was able to pick it up. Did I say I hate democrats? I've got to move out of this county.

Answer me one question . . . . Is there ANYONE on this forum that doesn't already have
"more that one" gun in any caliber they like?

OK, I lied. Second question . . . Is there ANYONE on this forum that doesn't have at least
500 rounds of their favorite ammunition, in each caliber they like?

Don't get me wrong, I find the attempted (or actual) closing of any LGS "due to the virus"
to be a MAJOR violation of our 2nd Amendment rights, but come on folks . . . .

In Hawaii, gun shops are classified essential.

Remember DICK"S sporting goods?
They HAD to shut down since they stopped selling guns and ammo.
Karma is a cast iron bitch ain't it?

Dick's is still in business and they are temporarily closed because of the Pandemic. In 2019 they actually increased sales 3.7%. And project 2020 to increase another 2%.

Well, I think that project 2020 just went down the toilet. The point is that they have to close because they donít sell guns. Increasing sales by 3.7% means nothing. You can be in a hole, increase sales and still be in the hole. I would like to see net profit numbers. There are many of us on this forum that would just as soon see them close because of their stance on 2A. Add that to the fact itís a crap store that hires 16 year olds that know nothing about the product they sell and, yep, ya got a winner there.......

Full Year Results
The Company reported consolidated net income for the 52 weeks ended February 1, 2020 of $297.5 million, or $3.34 per diluted share. For the 52 weeks ended February 2, 2019, the Company reported consolidated net income of $319.9 million, or $3.24 per diluted share.
On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the 52 weeks ended February 1, 2020 of $329.1 million, or $3.69 per diluted share, which excludes hunt restructuring charges, a gain on the sale of subsidiaries, non-cash asset impairments and the favorable settlement of a litigation contingency. There were no
non-GAAP adjustments to consolidated net income for the 52 weeks ended February 2, 2019. The GAAP to nonGAAP reconciliations are included in a table later in the release under the heading "GAAP to Non-GAAP
Reconciliations."
Net sales for the 52 weeks ended February 1, 2020 increased 3.7% to approximately $8.75 billion. Consolidated same store sales also increased 3.7%. Consolidated same store sales decreased 3.1% for the 52 weeks ended February 2, 2019, adjusted for the calendar shift due to the 53rd week in 2017, which the Company believes is the best view of its business.

Probably busy. The other day my Dad called a LGS to get a price quote on a rifle. The sales guy said they could order it, but wouldn't get him a price quote over the phone...told him he'd have to come in for the price.

To make matters worse, the sales guy said: We have a lot of customers in here now...and hung up.

It's hard to find good help these days.

You are just showing profit numbers, not increase year over year. ďSalesĒ percentage doesnít translate to the balance sheet.
How about this: ďConsolidated same store sales decreased 3.1% for the 52 weeks ended February 2, 2019Ē? That means that the year of 2019 just maybe got them back to even. The store sucks.......you work there??
