    Keep in mind that this doesn't include private sales either.

    On another forum, someone figured up that was more than the number of soldiers in the 10 largest armed forces in the world, combined. If true, that's rather interesting.

    Of course, that doesn't mean 10,800,000 different Americans bought guns in 2011. Seven of them were to me, for example, on the appropriate forms.

    Glad to see that

    From the article;



    Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Recent statistics released by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) report that for nineteen straight months, and that includes all of 2011, American men & women bought over 10,800,000 plus firearms.

    The final number, of 10,800,000, is considered conservative by experts because the this number does not account for the multiple purchase of guns at the same time or the guns bought and sold legally, person to person by US residents, which rightly so, do not require a back ground check.

    Ten Million new gun owners, in just 2011, should be a wake up call to our current President who continues to play dumb that his hate of bible clinging, gun toting American Values, like hunting & owning guns will not be tolerated. His and Eric Holder’s “under the radar” plan to sell guns to evil Mexican Gun Cartels in an effort to set up the Second Amendment as the fall guy now has ten million people angry at him.

    If just one current Presidential candidate (Ron Paul aside..) could prove his sworn support for the Second Amendment, and the constitution for that matter, and rally our forces behind him he would be swept into the white house on a massive wave of support. Can you, lol.. say Ted Nugent?

    So what does 10,800,000 look like?
    The guns purchased by American men & women in 2011 is more than one gun for every active duty military member in the worlds fourteen largest armies combined.

    •Russia Russian Federation 1,027,000
    •North Korea 1,106,000
    •South Korea 687,000
    •Vietnam 455,000
    •India 1,325,000
    •China 2,285,000
    •Iran 523,000
    •United States 1,468,364
    •Republic of China 290,000

    •Pakistan 617,000
    •Egypt 468,500
    •Cuba 49,000

    The number is impressive, however how many will be willing to keep them if demanded that they be turned in? How many will be willing to use them, push come to shove, against the tyranny that has become the federal government?

    I accounted for 3 of those from a dealer, also got 3 from private sales last year.

    And about the comment how many of those people are willing to keep regardless of what happens, my guns will never be someone elses until I die and they are passed down.

    i know someone who bought over 150 in the past 3 months and got a visit and a letter from atf. they tried to infringe on the collector -dealer borderline.

    unfortunately most people who own guns never stock up enough on ammo, assuming they can always run down to wally's and get them sum.
