Rex Gore — Black Wing Shooting Center, Delaware, Ohio
At the Black Wing Shooting Center, when it comes to firearm sales demand has been diverse.
Sales of concealed carry handguns are strong here and the selection of available models is much better now than it was four to six months ago, owner of the center Rex Gore said.
Black Wing is a Class III dealer, and sales of fully automatic firearms are on the upswing.
“They’re being bought more from an investment standpoint than for recreational shooting,” Gore said.
With a very limited supply (civilians can’t buy full-autos made after 1987), prices on full-auto firearms go up steadily; most Black Wing models sell for between $20,000 and $50,000. One exception: full-auto Uzi’s, frequently offered in the $15,000 range and snapped up quickly.
