$411 million global arms trade in 2010

In 2010, global gun runners not named China sold weapons and military services to the tune of $411 million in 2010, a 1% increase over the 2009 figures.
"The data for 2010 demonstrates, once again, the major players' ability to continue selling arms and military services despite the financial crises currently affecting other industries."
