What New Buyers Want

Post-COVID, Knipping thinks the same pistols will continue to be popular even with all the new shooters who emerged during 2020.

“There’s nothing spectacular coming into the market,” he said, while adding the caveat, “I say that, but things often surprise me.”

The most recent thing to surprise Knipping is red dot sights on concealed carry pistols.

“Companies are coming out with little bitty red dots,” he stated. “Now all I have to teach a new shooter is to look through the sight, put the red dot on the target and pull the trigger.”
