    Wonder why some of you and your dealers are waiting so long to get your guns in?

    I heard this today on Fox News.

    Ruger announced that it was suspending sales due to a two month backlog of orders.

    Gun sales are going through the roof because many people are starting to believe that Obama is going to be re-elected and as a lame duck President, is going to try an unprecedented gun grab, knowing that he has nothing to fear from voters at the end of his eight years.

    1M guns have been sold in the USA since January!
     
  2. I was just told this earlier today at the range.

    Well at least I got my Ruger sr 22 for $300. I also heard prices would get marked up. Thats a bummer :/. A lot of manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand.
