BREWER, Maine The managers of Van Raymond Outfitters and other Bangor-area gun shops say the recent rash of home invasions has increased gun sales.
Rick Lozier, who has worked at Van Raymonds for more than a decade, said Wednesday that customers are looking for handguns to protect themselves and their homes.
Maine Military Supply owner Frank Spizuoco, Old Town Trading Post owner Dave Hanson, and Ralph McLeod, owner of Buyers Guns in Holden, all said sales of guns and other defensive weapons have recently increased.
