She said she has a waiting list for buyers interested in AR-15-style rifles.
“It's starting to loosen up a bit on those. We're starting to see a few of them from time to time,” Burger said of the rifles. “We have a list because we want to be fair to the people who've been waiting. We don't even put them on the shelf.”
