Panic buying or prudent procurement?

There's a gun store near me that usually has a good inventory of AR type rifles. So I popped in today to see what was left.

Not much. A wall that's usually filled with 'em held only a few. The blank space glaringly obvious.

There were at least four people working the behind the counter. I've never seen more than two at a time before in this particular shop.

On the other side of the store, the selection of tactical type shotguns looked to be only a half to a third of the usual norm. And in the regular rifle racks, it looked as if only one in three spaces held a long gun, but I didn't stop to do a precise assessment.

The ammo shelf behind the counter looked a little thin too. I didn't take time to check the pistol cases, I'd come in for some cleaning patches and an eyeful of what recent events had done for black rifle sales.

I got both. And went on my way.
