How many gun stores are in the US?
1n 1994 @ 246K people had FFL's. Thanks to former President, Bill Clinton and the Congress of that era there are now less than 50k people with FFL's.
Not all of those ran a "store".

Answer . According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, there were about 215 million privately owned guns in 1999. The NRA estimates that half of al…l American households (total US population is 294 million) have at least one gun owner. Numbers vary, but estimates are 70-80 million gun owners with 200-250 million guns. There is no way to give a definitive answer. There are millions of guns in the U.S. Some estimates say 80 million households have guns, but since there is no national registration, there is no real way to know.
no possible way to know the answer with any accuracy at all.
There are 90 guns for every 100 people in the US. 39% of households in America have guns.
At the last NGC ( National Gun Census) in April 2007, it was recorded that, on average, there is about 178,000,000 lisenced firearms in the USA, although it is believed there …is a further 50% that are unlisenced.. No license is required to own a gun in most states, so it would be interesting to know exactly how they define "licensed guns."
hundreds every day!!!. Sigh. More BS hype. According to the FBI, in 2005, there were about 16,700 murders in the U.S. This includes murders by all types of weapons. 16,692 di…vided by 365 days is only a little over 45 each day, and that includes all types of weapons. In 2006, the number of murders in the U.S. was just over 17,000. In 2007, it was a little under 17,000. That is NOWHERE NEAR "hundreds every day," and that includes murders from all types of weapons. People should post facts that can be verfied, not crap that they hear. besides i like cheeeeeze
This question continues to come up, with great regularity. In most U.S. states, there is no registration, regardless of what anybody tells you. "Register you gun" is something… people say because they have heard it on TV. There are 3 or 4 states that require registration, but the other 46 or 47 states do not, and there is no federal registration. So, in the vast majority of the U.S. there is no such thing as registration.
Between half and three fourths of people in the US. It is different in other countries.
Unless stolen before making it to a retailer, they all are when bought. --- Firearms are not registered when sold by retailers (FFL dealers) unless they are required to b…e registered in a particular state. And the registration is usually done by the local police department in those states. FFL dealers record the buyer's information from form 4473 in their "bound book" and then they are obligated to keep these records for as long as they remain in business and keep their federal firearms license renewed. Gues it all depends on what the OP meant by "registered"
1. There are currently 140,000 registered firearms sellers in theUnited States (source: Arming America, Origins of a National GunCulture) The statistic information above shoul…d be explained further.According ATF publication "Firearms Commerce in the United States:Annual Statistical Update 2014", there were a total of 139,244Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) in fiscal year 2013. This numberhas been steadily climbing since 1996. However, the number oflicensees peaked in 1992 with 284,117. Furthermore, the term "seller" is not accurate. The number citedincludes licensees who are not considered "sellers" of firearms;collectors of firearms and manufacturers of ammunition. The statewith the largest number of FFLs is Texas, with about 10,500 FFLs asof fiscal year 2013.
None. When made, 99.9% are legal, no matter where made. Just because it's against the law for YOU to own it doesn't make the weapon illegal. Technically the above is correc…t however as guns are not required to be registered in all states it is impossible to say how many are owned legally. Guns that are owned illegally are obviously not registered so there is no way to know how many there are.
1. The total of (01) F.F.L.s is 29,167 (01) F.F.L.s Dealers too!
No exact answer, as there is no exact record- a good estimate is about 120 million privately owned handguns in the US.
4-10 million or more

This is an interesting question. Here are a few things you should know about C02 in airguns. When you charge a airgun with C02 it puts pressure throughout the system. This is …fine while you are shooting the gun. But you should never leave the gun for a long period with C02 just sitting in the gun. The pressure will eventually leak out and may actually damage the seals. When I finish shooting my C02 guns (I own over 40 different air pistols) I relieve the pressure by backing off the cylinder in the gun. This removes all the pressure from inside the system an allows the system to rest. When I put in a new C02 cylinder I put a drop of Pelgun oil on the tip of the cylinder and when the cylinder is pierced the oil lubricates the internal system again. This keeps the seals fresh and pliable. Leaving a gun overnight will only eventually damage the seals. Now I know that several grips need a cylinder in the pistol to hold the grip in place, so I leave an empty cylinder in the pistol with the thumb screw backed off a little to allow the grip to stay in place. I've actually loaded a new gun to test fire it with 20 to 30 shots and then released the C02 gas. So the cylinder cost me about 45 cents. That cheap considering what it would take to repair all the seals. It's just not worth damaging the pistol for a few cents. So to answer your question, "No" I never leave a charged C02 cylinder in my pistols.
I wouldn't waste my time with a vast majority of them, personally. That's why I have my own FFL.
Your question is a bit vague. If you mean how many people have gone to a gun store and bought a gun, the answer is in the millions. Federal law does not require a waiting peri…od, nor do most states. It is estimated that private persons in the US own ABOUT 310 million firearms.
