Local gun range sees increase in gun sales during Christmas

By  | 

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) For many, guns are the perfect gifts to find under tree Christmas morning. And that was especially true for one local couple.

Carl Motley says he has had a license to carry for several years. Now that a new state reduced the cost for a license from $140 to just $40, his wife decided to get on board.

So he says buying matching guns both of them was the perfect gift.

Something the owner of Red River Firearms says is becoming more common.

“I bought my wife and me matching handguns. They’re Taurus PT 11’s,” said Motley.

“You’re seeing a lot more couples shoot. It’s like range and a dinner kind of thing. So they’ll come out to shoot and then go out to eat," said Webb.
