“I thought I could make a little Facebook post, maybe get 20 people to buy a rifle, and that’d be the end of it,” Boggs said.
Instead, he said, the store has sold 500 firearms in the past four days — much more than the 100 they usually sell per month. The store phone’s message box is full and Boggs’ seven-person staff is just barely keeping up with the orders.
They’ve had to revamp one section of the store into a receiving area for new inventory.
“Our first day that we did the sale, I actually had to call an employee in and have him answer phones. That was his job the entire day, was just to answer phones,” Boggs said.
