    Interesting that Glock and Sig models only appear once in the list.

    That's because everyone already has their Glocks...

    I think it's interesting that it's almost all handguns...only 2 shotguns and one rifle. S&W seems to be doing well though.

    Yeah, for all the negative talk that S&W gets, it's the #2 best selling manufacturer.

    By manufacturer:

    1. Springfield (25%)
    2. S&W (20%)
    3. Highpoint (15%)
    4. Berretta (10%)
    5. The 6 remaining with 1 each (5% each for a combined total of 30% of the sales)

    Interesting to note that they are mostly all handguns and semi-auto's. Gives credence to the SCOTUS opinion in Heller that semi-auto handguns are the most common preference for self defense with a firearm.

    Marketing by a particular firearm manufacturer presents an entirely different image than reality. Kind of goes to illustrate what you "think" are the best sellers may not necessarily be the best sellers. If you do a google search on

    best selling firearms

    you would think the Glock 22 would come out on top. It doesn't even make the list.

    I think the $379 NIB price tag has something to do with it.

    A typo maybe?
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Very interesting list. I definitely would have expected more in the way of rifles and specifically AR's what with the big to-do when Obama took office.

    I wonder, are folks more likely to purchase long guns at a brick and mortar shop, rather than from an online retailer? Anyone in the business have an insight?

    The low cost and frequent rebate programs on the SWxVE's helped a lot there, as price does for many others on the list. It's an interesting mix of what was cheap or on sale and probably decent prices for what are considered more 'quality' items.

    It may reflect what is available. Look at their out of stock list.

    I'm not "in the business" but I'd suspect that EBR's are purchased locally rather than on line due to the different laws that affect them in individual states. I'd rather buy local and be relatively sure that I'm not going to immediately go to jail when I pick it up. If I buy online I have no assurances that the rifle is not an assault weapon or restricted by illegal features that make it an instant felony upon delivery.

    My guess is that the list reflects purchases from many first time buyers who feel that they just need something, anything... and purchased without getting solid information or a real knowledge how or when to use the thing. And rather than drop some large coin on a premium weapon, they go the low route .. just to have that "something".
