There is no question that Idaho is one of the most patriotic states in America. You don't have to look very far either to see how much people love our constitution - especially the Second Amendment.

This stands out more when you look at the annual revenue made from firearms but there is one state in particular that might love guns more than Idaho does.

California has entered the chat

According to, "the firearms industry rakes in an estimated $9 billion in revenue annually."

It's important to note that the money we're talking about is all legit - no dirty money here! That being said, Idaho might be one of the top states when it comes to firearm revenue, but it's not number one.

As a matter of fact, there are two surrounding states that actually make more money from guns than Idaho does... one of them is California.

It might be surprising to some as California is known for having some of the most strict gun laws in the country. On the other hand, it might not surprise some people merely because as we all know, California has a much bigger population than Idaho does.

Let's take a look at just how much money Idaho and surrounding states are making from firearm sales.

And no, it's not something obvious like a holster rather... some people want to pair it with something some would call "sexier."
