Greg BrownBrown’s Gunsmith Repair, Vicksburg, Miss.,

If it is a 1911-style handgun, it is in demand at Brown’s Gunsmith Repair, especially the Sig Sauer 1911 in .45 ACP.

“That’s a $1,000 handgun, but they went out the door like hotcakes,” owner Greg Brown said. “I have more on order! I was absolutely surprised.”

Concealed carry is big locally, and Brown is also selling a good number of the Ruger LC9’s packaged with a Crimson Trace laser sight for $599.

Local deer and hog hunters spent the fall snapping up bargain-priced big game rifles, including the Savage AXIS and the Ruger American.

They sell for $350 to $450, depending on if they are bought as a combo package with scope or not, and the reports Brown’s getting back on these long guns are all positive.

“That Savage AXIS is $400, but they are accurate as all get out,” says Brown. “My hunters love them.”
