    All the new guns

    I'll tell you, it sure is hard to keep up with the gun market. I know it's not this frequent, but it seems like there's a new gun or new model available every week.

    Then you have you guys that buy every new model that comes out, just because you can. (I would too, if I could afford it)

    It's a good thing we have dummy gun suppliers that TRY to keep up.

    It does feel a bit overwhelming when you don't keep up or if you're new to firearms in general, but it's actually a great sign. It shows that gun manufacturers aren't too scared to keep up the developing just because of political threats. Options breed improvements. That's the great thing about capitalism. By spending our money on what we like, we dictate where the gun market leads.

    I ain't worried about the new gun market 'cause I ain't gathered up all the guns I wanted back in the old gun market.

    I am enjoying a second hand S&W Model 10 4" barrel, and a custom trigger job, that was made in 1963.

    There is something about this old banger that feels right and shoots right.

    I have some new handguns also but would trust the Model 10 loaded with +P HP.

    After all everyone that carries is responsible for every round that they fire.

    Well, think of it this way...every time a new gun is launched into the market it creates an immediate need for holsters! So "keeping up" means your business is thriving...enjoy.

    I 've wondered how many orders for a certain pistol you need to get before it is feasible to order a dummy gun. I would think that you would need several.

    I enjoy being rather intelligent about firearms and keeping up to date on them. I work at a range most of the time, so it helps. Once you get the knowledge its easy to keep up.

    I wouldn't buy anything new, not until it's been on the market for at least a year...too many bugs to work out. Besides, my safe doesn't have much room for new guns anyway.

    It would be tough trying to keep up on all the gun models and making holsters for them,over the last few years your dummy gun pile musta grown outrageous

    I rarely buy something that just came out on the market, and that is because all possible defects. Even when learning from my own mistakes is good, I prefer to learn from other people’s mistakes (it is cheaper in that way). Furthermore, there already are out there way too many good guns that I “must” have

    It's amazing that revolvers have been around so long and they are still able to come up with new innovations to such a basic design. The same with semi-autos too. Just think about how far handguns have come in the last 50 years or so. Lots of new materials and capabilities our gun toting forefathers could have never imagined.

    I'm not interested in mouse guns or plastic guns, so that cuts way down on the list of guns that I do keep an eye on!

    I have a little extra room in mine, I would be glad to hold on to them for you.

    As far as purchasing everything that is new. Nope. One reason is that yes new products tend to have glitches in them. Secondly, there are lots of thing that overlap in the market.

    The little Kel Tec/ Ruger LCP and similar sized guns fit the same nitch.

    How many little snub nosed revolvers does one really need? There are probably 20 different models out there.

    The guns I purchase are usually bought for a particular purpose and I don't usually double up on things that fit the same role.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
