Gun sales are hitting the bullseye. Gun manufacturers, sports retailers, and even the FBI have noted a record numbers of sales and background checks, as reported by Opens a New Window. . The firearms industry is worth a whopping estimated $15 billion, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation says the industry accounted for $49.29 billion in total economic activity in 2015.
With America packing so much heat, what’s the most popular gun? Firearm? Top gauge? tallied up what tops the list for gun owners.

1. Best-Selling Semi-Automatic Pistol: Smith & Wesson M&P Shield

Extremely thin, lightweight and easy to conceal, the Smith and Wesson 9mm Shield is a popular pistol for consumers concerned with self-defense, says GunBroker. “One million Shield owners can’t be wrong,” boasts Smith and Wesson.

2. Best-Selling Revolver: Heritage Arms Rough Rider

With the look and feel of Wild West outlaws, the Heritage Arms Rough Rider collection is a #1 pick for modern day gun-slingers, according to GunBroker. Take for example the .22 Small Bore revolver (shown) with a Cocobolo wooden grip, and cold blue finish.
