[link to www.hattiesburgamerican.com]

WASHINGTON For the second consecutive year, prospective gun buyers joined Black Friday shoppers in record numbers as firearms dealers swamped the FBI with required buyer background check requests.

The FBI fielded 154,873 calls, a roughly 20 percent increase from last year’s previous one-day record of 129,166, according to bureau records.

The requests came in such volume throughout the day that FBI call centers experienced two brief outages — one of 18 minutes and one for 14 minutes — during the busy day, FBI spokesman Stephen Fischer said.

Went to a small local gun shop than had advertised some really good deals on rifles. All out of all AR, AK, FAL, and Siaga platforms, except the .22 caliber version. Same thing at a local chain sporting goods store. Both places literally had dozens of rifles sitting in back or on the shelf still waiting for the background checks to go through. This was on Saturday morning.

I was debating on snagging the Troy AR from Dick's Sporting goods for $799, but ended up not going for it.

There were a few deals out there, but honestly... the past few Black Friday's have been fairly lackluster. Black Friday used to mean good deals, but now its just psychological marketing ploys. :-(

They have been taking longer to approve sales and get backed up for hours which means gun sales have gone up overall anyway and that was months ago.

I hope they bought lots of ammo too.

Because a gun without ammo is just a club.

And not even a good club.
