Is a second wave of gun buying panic coming this year? I certainly think so but likely will be regional in the riot destroyed states and cities.

The buying won’t last long......inventory hasn’t yet caught-up from the Covid “Panic-Purchase”. memtb

I sure hope so, particularly around the weekend of June 13-14 when I will have a table at a local gun show with, among other things, 4-5 semi-auto handguns on the table.

Panic buying is my new excuse....

I go through buying excuses like poop through a goose.

Hopefully most already have what they need. So the production catch up won't be an issue, for first time buyers!

We just got another "Gubmint Chek" and I don't need any shootin' irons, but if I was in certain cities and thought I was in danger, I would buy one fast!

It's pretty obvious the business owners in the riot zones didn't already have what they need. I'm amazed they didn't.

The biggest thing I've noticed is certain magazines going out of stock

With COVID everyone stocked up on ammo.

With the riots that ammo's making it's way to loaded magazines.

I saw a guy post on another forum about buy his 1st gun? Seems a bit late to me. Then one has to factor in the whole thought process of actually carrying one & potentially using it.

Good luck with that. Right now, at all 4 of the distributors I deal with, there is not a Glock of any caliber to be had, other than the Model 44 chambered in 22 LR. And only a couple of them even have any of those. Any other model is gone within minutes of being put into inventory. Handgun ammo is in the same situation, especially any of the popular calibers.
