With little warning, we went from ordinary, relatively uneventful daily routines to unprecedented lockdowns in the face of a global pandemic.

Supporting Local Business

The negative economic impact resulting from events that have transpired within the last six months has been tremendous. An unprecedented closure of the economy has caused irreparable harm to small businesses across the country, forcing many to shutter their doors for good. Unemployment rose higher in three months of COVID-19 than it did in two years of the Great Recession.

Guns & Ammo

Within just the first six months of 2020, approximately 19 million firearms have been sold. These are unprecedented numbers, and are a reflection of the concern that American citizens have for their safety and well-being. Amid the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, further destabilization has been introduced in the form of riots, looting and other forms of lawless behavior around the country. As if it wasn’t enough that normal life as we know it has been turned upside down by health concerns related to COVID-19, we must now also look over our shoulders to ensure we do not become victims of violent criminals who have taken to disrupting peace and security with seeming impunity.

Business as usual?

With the trials and tribulations of COVID-19 and the recent social unrest that has gripped the country over the last few months, is there any way that business as usual can once again return? What will be our new normal? When will we be able to head out to a ball game with our friends and families? Will the smile and firm handshake at a business meeting once again seal the deal?

Shotguns come in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from a .22 inch bore up to a 2.0 inch bore, also identified by “gauge”, such as 20 gauge, 12 gauge, 10 gauge and so forth. Shotguns utilize a range of firearm operating mechanisms, including breech loading, single or double-barreled, pump-action, bolt, lever-action, semi-automatic, and even fully automatic variants.
