Rumors are circulating that Remington is preparing to file bankruptcy again. That company must have some massive problems to be in financial trouble during the biggest run on firearms in history.

The FBI released the raw NICS background checks for the month of June 2020. June was the highest month on record going back to November 1998 with 3,931,607 checks, which is more than 200,000 more than the prior record of March 2020. These are the raw numbers, so not every check was necessarily for a firearm. The NSSF takes the FBI's numbers and issues an adjusted number of checks that it supposed to be closer to the number of gun sales. Those numbers should be out in a few days. Still, it's quite likely that the vast majority were firearm purchases.

The number of checks so far this year exceeds the total number of checks in every year prior to 2012 and is within a couple hundred thousand of the total checks for 2012. There were 28.3 million NICS checks in 2019. If the pace so far this year stays the same, 2020 could see close to 40 million NICS checks.

My Dad used part of his stimulus check to buy a pair of pocket guns.

None of the guns I'd like to buy are in stock anywhere. I'd like the Ruger PC Carbine with the AR-style pistol grip and stock. Can't find one of those anywhere. Heck, I'd also like a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk in .44 Special, and all those are sold out.

I thought ammo background checks might be contributing to the spike in NICS, but apparently the CA requirement is an 'eligibility check' that searches state-level records and doesnt hit NICS.
