Meeting the Demand
by Keith Evans, Vice President of Sales and Marketing
Based on this year’s trends, 2022 is expected to be the third-strongest year for firearm sales in America. According to the NSSF (National Shooting Sports Foundation), “FBI Background check figures show that over one million guns have been sold in America every month for the past 38 months”. In fact, there were 2,470,462 (NICS) National Instant Criminal Background checks in September, with 1.2 million specifically for gun sales. NICS background checks have set records monthly for 16 consecutive months and show no sign of slowing down. It appears that the gun companies have met the demand, but what about the shortage of ammunition that still exists? The ammunition industry has to follow suit with millions of new gun owners. The ammunition components manufacturers must rally and concentrate on providing the highest quality, safest, and most reliable products to ensure that these proud new gun owners have the best experience possible. At First Breach, we are committed to meeting these demands.
