    That's a lot of guns!

    Let's get nerdy...that's 38,356 guns a day...1,598 guns an hour...27 guns a minute...

    I'm glad I got to contribute 2 purchases to that number...

    Glad to see Americans taking steps to defend themselves.

    Well I guess that between the members here on DC, GlockTalk, The High Road, and the few other firearm forms we probably account for 11-12 million sold, hummm, I wonder if law enforcement purchases are in the total. I'm bad, only one firearm last year. Honest, I'll try harder this year!

    Regards,
