Americans Purchased These Firearms The Most In 2022
Post-Covid, firearm sales at the retail level soared to record levels. According to National Shooting Sports Foundation, the 2022 National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) totaled 16.4 million. While NICS checks aren't related to actual firearms sales, it's a proxy for gun demand.
A new monthly report from GunGenius, which uses data from Gunbroker, reveals the top-selling firearms sold online in 2022:
- SIG Sauer P320 semi-automatic pistol
