I have not been to a gun store recently, but based on postings here I suspect supply is running low (or will be soon), and possibly the only remaining supply is the high end/expensive offerings.
With that in mind, I am mentally preparing for non-gun owner acquaintances to ask the question “is there any way I could borrow one of your guns for self-defense until this situation is over?”
My response is going to be a polite “no, because I am responsible for every bullet that leaves the barrel of every one of my guns.”
Just throwing this out there as food for thought, so if someone asks you, you are not blind-sided and already know what you will do. I am also looking for better worded responses
