Spike for gun and ammunition sales

Spike for gun and ammunition sales

Across the nation gun and ammunition sales have seen a considerable increase overall with a local spike as well for ammunition and specific firearms.

Carl Smith, owner of Blade-n-Barrel in Jena, which is a popular supply store for firearms and ammunition, said sales in his store have increased significantly in the past week compared to the amount of sales this time last year.

“I can’t really compare sales right now with the past months because it was hunting season but if I look at sales this month last year they are definitely up,” Smith said. “Gun sales have been up for only specific guns right now, but it’s ammunition sales that have skyrocketed. I’d say it’s been about 75% up on sales of handguns and AR-15s, but ammunition sales have been triple what they were this time last year.”
