Bud’s Top Selling Guns for 2011

Bud’s Gun Shop is one of the more popular discount firearms retailers on the internet, and a place I’ve purchased a number of firearms over the years. This afternoon they sent out a very interesting email detailing the top 15 firearms sold through their store in the last year rank ordered by volume, and I thought it might be interesting to share that tidbit of information. Make the jump for the full list…

It seems like the trend of gun owners buying handguns over rifles is continuing, with some notable exceptions. The Mosin Nagant was my first rifle and I couldn’t have picked a better one to start with, so I’m glad to see it still topping the list. If you only buy two guns, a Mosin Nagant and a .22lr rifle of some sort would be my choices.
