With all the impending new taxes, laws, etc that we are most likely going to see would you buy a new gun off the shelf from the store or be in a wait and see period? Wife wants to learn to shoot and a 22 pistol would probably be the ticket to properly and safely teach her.

If you can find "what you want" buy it for sure. Its difficult to know what lies ahead in the future.

NEVER off the shelf. Hate to cut out my locals but nobody around me can beat the prices on the web.

Buy what you want now because as soon as Biden, Kamala, pelosi or Schumer so much as whispers the words “gun control”, panic buying will begin and you won’t be able to find anything for a long while.

I had three more fall out of the boat in the last 30 days. I think I'm going to need a bigger boat.

I'm wondering what the status of gun shows will be under Biden's administration? Will there be restrictions such as what can be sold, longer more intense waiting periods? Will there even be gun shows in the future?

Mine will and do. I think it helps that they see me in and out and know that I do and will continue to support the local shops.

Buy now if you can find it. I would look online there are great deals to be had and no tax if out of state. Sounds like a Ruger Wrangler might be a good choice for her if it is just plinking. Also, they can be found fairly easy. Ammo on the other hand........

I think you might want to consider starting her on a rifle to learn the basics, she will get frustrated with the process if she starts with a pistol.
