Richard Sprague – Sprague’s Sports, Yuma, Ariz.

Richard Sprague is a little surprised at the popularity of bullpup-style shotguns like the UTAS UTS-15 and the Kel-Tec KSG, both of which are 12 gauge and pump-operated.

“They’re definitely being bought by people interested in a self-defense shotgun” the owner of Sprague Sports said. “But they’re also sought after by guys who like cool and innovative guns.”

Sprague’s sells the UTS-15 for $1,199, the KSG for $1,100.

Gun cleaning and maintenance supplies are moving very well, both individual products and packaged sets of cleaners, lubricants, patches, rods and brushes.

“We stock all we can get and it all sells,” Sprague said.

Champion and Do It All Outdoors ground reactive targets are big sellers, too.

Kids and plinkers like the movement created when these targets are hit, and they can take thousands of rounds and bounce back for more.
