These figures aren’t definite marketing projections (one NICS check can be utilized for various weapons purposes) and a few people, after a NICS check, don’t buy a gun (albeit most do).
Notwithstanding, in the event that NSSF didn’t cautiously figure changes, the figures would be unique.
For instance, the unadjusted February 2012 NICS count is 1,734,646 record verifications, a 18.6 percent expansion from the unadjusted NICS figure of 1,463,138 in February 2011.

Walk 2012 was the 22nd straight month that NSSF-changed NICS figures expanded.
With 145 million record verifications for guns qualification led during the beyond 14 years, the media’s figure of 200 million firearms in American hands today likely is a smidgeon low.
As a sidebar, Ruger quit taking requests since it has more than 1 million current delay purchases. Ruger’s gun deals by April 2012 apparently surpassed all deals for 2011.
