Americans Bought 21 Million Guns in 2020

8.4 million were first time buyers

The Daily Signal – January 05, 2021

The world has said “good riddance” to 2020 and ushered in a new year. Although 2020 was a year in which many people faced extraordinary challenges, it did come with a silver lining for advocates of a strong Second Amendment right—unprecedented growth in the number of Americans who embrace their right to keep and bear arms.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Americans bought an estimated 21 million firearms in 2020, with 8.4 million Americans buying a gun for the first time last year.

Additionally, the number of Americans with concealed carry permits continued to grow, albeit at a slower rate than in past years. This likely was due to record-long delays in permit processing and shutdowns because of COVID-19.

It is hardly surprising that law-abiding citizens flocked to exercise their Second Amendment rights last year. It was, after all, a year replete with widespread civil unrest and calls to strip resources from police departments already hamstrung by a global pandemic.

The left is actively working to undermine the integrity of our elections. Read the plan to stop them now. Learn more now >>

But even during “normal” years, the right to keep and bear arms plays an important role in preserving the public safety.

According to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost every major study on the issue found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times a year. We have good reason to believe that many of these defensive gun uses aren’t reported to police, much less make the local or national news.

A Little Something For The New Gun Owner In Your Life . . .

We train you to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.

In-Gauge of Polk County has gift certificates available for ALL firearms, concealed carry and self-defense training classes.

These gift certificates are the perfect gift for the person in your life who is hard to shop for, who has recently purchased or received a new firearm and has yet to receive formal training.
ALL our firearms training classes qualify the student for applying for a Florida concealed carry license.
The class title does NOT have to state “concealed carry class”.

Gift certificates are available for as little as $35, for our 3 hour, minimum standards concealed carry class.

In-Gauge of Polk County has been conducting incomparable concealed carry classes, in Polk County, for over 6 years. During such time, we have trained over 5,000 law abiding citizens how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones. We receive numerous word-of-mouth referrals, with students traveling from as far north as Atlanta, Georgia and as far south as Fort Lauderdale and Naples to attend our classes.

In-Gauge of Polk County is represented at more retail sporting goods stores than any other forearms training group in central Florida.

However, we have not done a good job in getting the word out that we conduct more than basic ‘concealed carry’ classes.

Although our basic, 5-hour concealed carry training class (CCW 101), is head and shoulders above and beyond any other ‘concealed carry’ class conducted locally and far exceeds the minimum standard for applying for a Florida concealed carry license, we consider it a basic, orientation, self-defense, training class.

Ask that same agency or any gun shop concealed carry class provider if they train you in:

  • drawing from a holster or a pocketbook,
  • the various methods of carrying a concealed firearm,
  • the clearing of firearm malfunctions and jams,
  • the utilization of cover and concealment or
  • the tactical use of a shotgun for home defense.

You Took A Concealed Carry Class, Now What?

We train you to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones

If your concealed carry class did not look like this, you did not take a true concealed carry class . . .

In-Gauge of Polk County’s ‘Active Shooter’ Defense – Live-fire range training.

We recently graduated another class of ‘active shooter’ defenders. These people will have your back while you are shopping, filling your gas tank or attending church services and you will never know they are there. They have been trained to carry a deadly weapon in public.

This group completed 15 hours of ‘active shooter’ defense training that included: situational awareness, mental preparedness, the drawing from a holster, advanced live-fire handgun training, that included the use of cover and concealment, moving, shooting, reloading, moving between cover and concealment, managing firearm malfunctions, while engaging single and multiple assailants and Stop The Bleed emergency wound care training.

Regardless if you have already taken a concealed carry class or you have a Florida concealed carry license, contact us for official NRA firearms training that will prepare you to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.

If you haven’t yet taken a concealed carry class or have little to no training, we can take you from the novice, beginner shooter to the advanced level in shorter time than you think. Firearms training is all we do and we are good at it.
