Gun Boom: FBI Ran 187,585 Background Checks on Black Friday Alone

The FBI conducted 187,585 National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS) checks on gun sales and transfers on Black Friday 2021 alone.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reports the Black Friday 2021 NICS checks surpassed those of 2020, which came in at 186,645.

Moreover, NSSF noted that the FBI performed a total of 687,788 NICS checks during the entire week, including those on Black Friday.

NSSF president Joe Bartozzi commented on the tremendous number of background checks conducted last week:

This figure of over 687,000 background checks is truly remarkable. This year has already been shaping up to be the second strongest year for firearm sales on record, second only to 2020’s record-breaking number of 21 million background checks for a firearm sale. We anticipate, based on annual data, that firearm sales will rise during the final month of the year coinciding with hunting seasons and holiday sales. This figure, though, underscores the appetite for lawful firearm ownership in America and the resilience of the firearm and ammunition industry to meet that demand.

I was waiting for this information. Keep in mind that people who have concealed carry licenses do not need a background check to purchase firearms. Also keep in mind that individual sales do not have background checks.

I just bought one in FL and they did the background even though I have CC.

In Washington everyone gets the check. The libs passed it a few years ago along with a 10 day waiting period and let’s not forget about having the firearm unloaded, in a safe, and in a locked room while not in your possession.

In my retirement travels, Tenn., Va., WVa and Ky. plenty to have that are not in system. 😜 Pricing for some were cheaper, I recently ran into a supply of ammo $0.06 HP-.22, $0.45 HP-.380 & 9mm and $0.40 223, the only catch you had to buy bulk(1000rd). But at these prices who wouldn’t. I like to stay Prep.
On Black Friday I was able to order from Cable’s online .22 HP(250rd) at $14.99 per box limit 2. Then go to store get 2-more limit at 2. All other ammo was limited to 5-boxes per caliber if you were a club member. Notice their pricing was the best among competitors.
Few months age heard CEO of Smith & Western say that ammo in the Fall would be plentiful and cheaper. THEN said things will be hard to get for another year starting in 2022.
Guess He knew that the Russian supply chain would be Cut.

Amen to that. Hardest thing if to find people to train with (doing it alone helps only so much). My biggest fear is letting people down who depend on me.

The warrior poet society has some great online training also with self defense training. Every little bit helps when you aren’t able to attend live training classes.

My suggestion—John Wick in last movie in hotel when under attack by about 30 ?? armor protected attackers that ammo wouldn’t penetrate and what was the last thing he did—-got a shotgun with armor piercing shot—yes shotgun shells that will put the hurt on any coming into your home etc. and even put a hurt on someone standing behind metal doors—--so when training isn’t possible at least you have a better then average ability to survive and will scare the crap out of any once you start to unload—-but hey that is just me—--stand behind the wall or door and bend over and kiss your @$$ goodbye—
