P3-AT is hard to find!

From CBS News Palm Beach, Florida.

Handgun shortage for some gun shops

March 18, 2009 - 6:54 PM

The economy is now affecting the way people are purchasing firearms. CBS 12 News checked in with several local gun shops who say supply on some handguns is running short.

E-Z Cash Pawn in West Palm Beach says the change in presidential politics and the struggling economy is why these handguns are going like wildfire. The Kel-Tec 380 handgun is becoming so scarce that EZ Cash Pawn has pulled their last one off store shelves.

"This is the last one we were able to order cause everytime we go to order them-- we can't get em," said James Miller who at E-Z Cash Pawn.


The Florida Department of Agriculture says they've seen a 30 percent increase in concealed weapons permits this year compared to last year.

Huh? Seriously?

Just about every gun shop/pawn shop in the Daytona area has a few P3ATs on display in their cases. Doesn't seem to be a shortage here.

Went to Sportsman's Warehouse last Monday. On the pegboard behind the counter where they usually have around 50 or more guns, there were 3... a S&W 40 and 2 western-type revolvers. If not so sad it would be comical. Poor guy behind counter said the gun guys have their hours cut back, since they have nothing to sell. Naturally, ammo shelves were bare too. Never seen a P3AT at that store before. Bad time to work behind a gun counter. He also said its partially due to all US gun manufacturing factories closing from Thanksgiving to New Years (after the hunting season). He said the people who work in the factories still get paid while closed though.
