Black Friday Best-Seller: Guns


abcnews.go.com

Americans were big spenders on Black Friday–especially on guns.

Numbers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation show an all-time one-day high for background check requests from gun buyers last Friday. There were 129,166 requests to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)–a third more than the previous record of 97,848 on Black Friday 2008, FBI spokesman Stephen Fischer said. On Black Friday last year, there were 87,061 requests.

This is interesting news. It is the largest day for the FBI instant background checks on record. What does this tell everyone about how people are feeling this year. They feel like giving each other firepower for Christmas. It is going to be a bang up year on 2012 I think and this is just one little indicator of that likely fact.

I bought 3 pistols and 4 rifles one Black Friday this year from the pawn shop Total cost $1100 Actual Value $3500+

For the last 2 years all of the local gun shops and pawn shops have had killer Black Friday sales.
