I used to catch production reports online now and again, but don't recall one lately. Somewhere around 2009-2010, Ruger was the first to make over a million guns in a year. I just found this bit of data from 2016. S&W production was up an astounding 44%. They out produced ruger and everyone else in 2016 to be number 1, with 2,120,910 firearms produced. Ruger was second at 1,981,590. That's 4,102,500 firearms for just these 2 companies in 1 year. Total for all domestic manufacturers was over 10,6000, and rifles, for the first time topped 4 million. Anyone want to guess what kind of rifle a good bit of those probably were? Here is the report.

S&W makes about 1.2 million handguns a year, unfortunately less than 300,000 of them are revolvers

That's at least 300,000 smiles initially though :)

Georgia Good News

In this fine state, one gives driver's license and carry permit to store clerk, completes Form 4473, and walks out the door with their firearm. No NICS check is done in Georgia with a valid carry permit. In the last 2 years I believe there were 10 good deals that walked out the door and were not counted in the statistics.
