    Gun salesman-in-chief: 52,600 a-day under Obama, more seen under Hillary

    Under Obama, background checks for guns reached 141.4 million through the end of May, amounting to sales of about 52,600 a day, according to the FBI. Last year, the FBI conducted more than 23 million background checks, which are generally used to figure sales of new and used weapons.

    Domestically, manufacturers have reported producing about 21,000 guns a day, or more than 46 million in Obama's first six years in office.

    Justin Anderson, marketing director for Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, N.C.: "This is likely the beginning of a long rise in gun sales leading up the election. Should Hillary Clinton take a significant lead, it will only boost these sales."

    I want to jump on the bandwagon, but my wife said if we buy anything else we were going to have to get rid of something because we have too much stuff. But I still want a Mosin Nagant, just because, and this seems like maybe a good time. Well, I hope she doesn't miss her food processor...

    Good luck finding a Nagant at a low price anymore.

    I purchased a 39 Tula Mosin about 5 years ago for $141 including the Ga states sales tax (7%). It was still in cosmoline and generally very good condition.

    It isn't much of a high value rifle or any such. But is it rather potent, rather accurate and if you think about it, it very likely helped keep the German Army out of Stalingrad.

    Don't mean much in general, but still kinda cool. No you cannot purchase it.

    Take your time. In ten years, that will be the only thing allowed to still be sold.

    I really don't like the idea of jumping on bandwagons...but I do admit that once I decided a few months ago that hillary was going to be the next president I started several builds and made several purchases of items I expect to be illegal a year from now.
