Our follow-up survey reveals optimistic gun trade raring to go once lockdown is lifted

Last issue Gun Trade News published the results of its exclusive coronavirus report, showing that two-thirds of the shooting sports sector planned to close down and ride out the coronavirus storm. 

Now, six weeks later, we have conducted a second survey, asking many of the same questions, to see if the mood of the industry has changed. The results are surprising and encouraging.

Here are the highlights, for the full story you’ll have to wait until Gun Trade News comes out on 20 May.
