Handgun sales in some states surged amid fears the Jan. 8 shooting spree in Tucson, Ariz., that left six dead and 12 wounded would lead to tightened gun laws.
Wisconsin gun buyers aren't as panicked, said Roger Wendling, owner of La Crosse's Monsoor's Sport Shop, where more than 100 handguns retail from $250 to $2,000.
"Some states are more paranoid than we are," he said. "There hasn't been a run in any way."
Wiebke Fur Co. in La Crosse also hasn't seen a spike in handgun sales, said manager Jeff Adamson. The North Side store's more than 30 handguns are available for about $500.
"People aren't calling asking for Glocks," the weapon used in the shooting, he said. "I don't think we'll see any immediate change (in the law)."
