Colorado gun sales soar on Black Friday

http://www.9news.com/news/article/300933/339/Colorado-gun-sales-soar-on-Black-Friday


LAKEWOOD - Like many big-ticket items, guns are a popular purchase for Coloradans on Black Friday.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation reported it was on track to perform 4,000 background checks Friday on people purchasing firearms.

In 2011, CBI's InstaCheck unit set a single-day record by checking 3,031 gun buyers.

The CBI checks gun buyers against a mix of seven state and federal databases for criminal records, a process that takes less than four minutes on average.


It warms the cockels of my heart to see this.

1. I'm thinking a Sig C3 1911 would be a nice gift.

One of the guys at he hospital has a LNIB C3 with CT grips for sale 800 bucks.

I figure I just saved about 2000 bucks two days ago when I found a XR70 for my son instead of springing for a new ATV.



I also ordered my daughter a nice compound bow...

The only thing I've bought the wife so far is a 100 pack of 38 special.

It's going to be a great Christmas.

Apparently racism is expanding it's borders.

Good time to self delete, DU has higher standards than this.

17. Hey dummy! We've had one for four years already

Or hadn't you noticed?

Based on your racist view of everything, they should have been selling at this level for four years.

7. Most firearm purchases fall into the category known as "discretionary"

 

Increased sales are simply an indication that discretionary buying power has increased because the economy is improving.
