President Barack Obama is, arguably, the best gun salesman ever. Over 65 million guns have been purchased since the President took office in 2009. FBI background check statistics indicate that, over the last twelve months, Americans purchased a new gun every 1.5 seconds, a figure which suggests there is much more to the recent panic buying than people just stocking up to go hunting or sports shooting.
The following guns and ammo industry report indicates that every major gun and ammunition manufacturer in the country is running at 100% capacity, with many so far behind that they’ve stopped taking new orders altogether.
Smith & Wesson-is running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.
RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.
FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1. Remington-Maxed out!
Armalite: Maxed out.
DPMS: Can’t get enough parts to produce any more product.
COLT: Production runs increasing weekly…bottle necked by Bolt carrier’s.
LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacity…can’t get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.
Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.
AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.
MAGPUL is behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.
RELOADERS… ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra’s for reloading purposes… it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted…
Many who have exercised their Second Amendment protections are first time buyers concerned with Federal and State gun grabs being spearheaded by politicians who are using the Sandy Hook school shooting as a pretext to restrict access to personal defense rifles, larger capacity magazines, and even ammunition.
We are going to redistribute all that ammo and the guns .
I think the current figure is 2.5 billion !! You don't think they are affraid of us do you ??(;-) They better be !!!
AWESOME. SEMPER FI, AN OATH KEEPER
You mean they are going to be on the wrong side of the flashsuppressors . ALRIGHT !
LOLOL---SOMETHING like that--these fools just have NO CLUE--kinda like Sherman----
I want to thank you for signing as an "oathkeeper". It is reassuring to find our former military and law enforcement ready and willing to stand alongside the country's citizens and its constitution. Our constitution is an elegantly simple document. An unlawful repeal of ANY of the first 8 amendments is expressly forbidden by the 9th amendment. If any amendment is retracted or attempted to be overridden (e.g. by executive order), the government that chooses that path becomes invalid (i.e. unconstitutional). Wouldn't poetic justice be served if our own government should choose to make itself illegal by violating the very constitution by which the people's government was ordained. And yes, at that point, a point of potential lawlessness and anarchy, people realize they will have to protect themselves, their family and our property. Like in the old west, when the sheriff couldn't always get there. Even then crime was rare.
I hope some of these manufacturers follow Olympic Arms and boycott government agencies that support" putting them out of business ". I hope every citizen is stock piling, the goverment is and that is part of the master plan! Looks like the government is trying to buy up all the ammo so civilians can't get any. A sign of truly bad things to come?
Good point, Richard. The minute that the word was out about what the federal government was doing in that regard, The People should have leapt into the market.
And by The People, I mean those citizens who are not going to stand for seeing their Constitution blown away.
And I'm not just talking about the Second Amendment. I'm talking about the whole shebang. So to speak.
We are stocking up just ask the retailers they are all out of ammo ! the DHS is adding salt to an already large wound ! Guess who's money they are using to buy all that ammo????and I guess their plan is to repay the debt by shooting it back at us!!
Another thing,I obviously cannot menchion names but there are quite a few citizens very well suplied !!
Some else that see's the light. I am impressed. Government is doing that very thing buying up all the ammo. I know they are afraid of us and they dam well should be. It is coming and when it does there will be hell to pay.
WE HAVE THE BEST CONGRESS THAT MONEY CAN BUY!!!
yeppr dhs so be it men in black
