I was shocked to see an ad right here on this website from Brownell's, showing a sale they are currently having on Walther handguns. My carry pistol is a first generation Walther PPS that I got 8 years ago shortly after it came on the market. This is a real quality, well made handgun, that I just love to death for its size, ergonomics, and accuracy. But my eyes just about popped open, when I saw that Walter was not only now selling the 2nd generation of the gun for much less money, but also offering a rebate on top of that too! With the rebate, the price of this fine German made handgun comes all the way down to $299!! That is literally HALF of what I paid for the first generation model of the very same pistol 8 years ago!! How is this possible? Is competition in the gun industry getting to the point, where companies are lowering their prices in order to stay competitive? I've seen prices for many AR rifles coming down significantly, making them more affordable than ever these days. But are we now seeing handgun prices being affected too?? Is simply supply and demand driving this situation? Supposedly, gun sales continue to remain at a very high level in our country.
