1. When you get a background check the first 2 numbers is the year then a dash then the number of your background check. So If you are the first one to buy a gun on 1/1/12 it would be 12-000001 2. I bought a gun on 1/1/12 at 10 am and was the 40th person 3. The guy at Fisherman's marine states the last gun he sold on 12/31/11 was in the 211,000 range. So assuming guns are sold everyday of the year. 592 guns are sold everyday in Oregon There are about 3.8 million Oregonians. 64% are 18-64 yo so 2.4 million Oregonians. So slightly less than 1 Oregon out of 10 between 18-64 owns a gun.
