Well anyway I was surfing gun sites and noticed that small .32 and .380 pistols are pretty much sold out.
And was wondering why.
I hope this post is good.

Yes. A bunch of political/COVID posts (not yours) got it nuked.

So, staying within guidelines...

Mouse guns are among the many products seeing unusual demand.

A trip to my local gun store Thursday was very strange. Crowds. Outside tent as sort of a “triage area”. Patrons were directed into three lines: retail store (regular shopping), range (with separate table outside for the waiver form) and GunBroker pickup (with a separate table outside for paperwork, including the ATF 4473).

Long line outside for the retail store (to comply with the governor’s executive order on the max # people in various types of establishments.).

Inside (I was buying a charging handle and some timing shims) - prices were up. Many shelves were bare. The number of semi-auto rifles was a small fraction of what they normally had. Concealed carry guns were in short supply. Ammo was marked up a bit, and big cases were missing.

People were polite, but there was a clear, dramatic, change in sales. Everybody was buying. Very little browsing.

I don’t see this spike in demand for certain things (mouse guns, concealed carry guns, semi-auto rifles, ammo) diminishing anytime soon.

You'd think with all the panics and gluts we've seen over the past 10-30 years most everyone would have what they needed by now. But it continues.

It’s not about needing.

I was surprised, with everything that’s going on, that it was only seven months.

The past few years the ammo was abundant and at low prices, the shelves were full of guns for sale at below list prices and all of a sudden kaboom there is a rush.
I guess products are better when scarce and marked up at ripoff prices.
