This is the time of year where I usually make gift suggestions in this space. I’ve been doing that already with a book suggestion here, and a garment suggestion there. For hardware, though…
…we’re in the worst possible time for that. It’s hard to suggest what guns and ammo to buy for the shooters you care about when guns are scarce and ammo is scarcer, and outrageously expensive.
What’s to do?
I’d suggest gift certificates from your local (ideally, the gift recipient’s local) gun shop. Industry sources tell me that availability and pricing won’t be coming back to anywhere near normal until well into 2021.
Make sure the gift certificate is good for at least a year.
You’re also doing a good deed for your local gun shop. You’d think with all the demand, they’d be rolling in profits, but that’s not the case. Demand notwithstanding, they can’t sell what they can’t get into inventory.
