My collection so far; Beretta model 92 9mm, Kimber Ultra crimson carry .45 caliber, S&W Pro 60 .357, NAA Guardian .380 and a Mossberg 590A1. The collection will continue to grow as I find more and more firearms that I'm interested in owning and shooting. Finding 9mm ammo can sometimes be a challenge.

Art119. Also in northern NV. Went to "The Big Show" at Grand Sierra and even Friday morning it was packed with a line to buy tickets. Lots of hand trucks toting ammo out of the show. If dealers didn't make money that weekend, they were doing something wrong. And, if I recall, weren't all of your weapons lost in a tragic boating accident? Mine (if I ever had any) were lost in a kayaking trip in the Pacific. Tragic. Very tragic.

After President Obama was elected in 2008, gun sales skyrocketed for four years. Now that Obama is due for a second term, those sales continue to climb.

Owners of some Houston gun shops say they have noticed an increase of gun sales since President Barack Obama's re-election, and attribute the rush to the president's reference in a debate to renewing an assault rifle ban.

Jim and Joy Pruett, who have run Jim Pruett's Guns and Ammo for 11 years, said sales have gone "through the roof" since Election Day. "We haven't been able...
