The FBI has released its National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figures for September 2010. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has performed their voodoo on the stats—subtracting NICS checks for concealed carry permits—and come-up with an adjusted number of dealer enquiries: 770,310. That’s a six percent increase over last September’s 726,572. In a down economy, post Obama gun-grabbing paranoia, that ain’t hay. Again, I reckon the Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) biz is driving the market. We’ll keep an eye out for data on what kind of firearms are selling, but dollars to donuts its small handguns like the Ruger LCP.
