Status of Ammo & Gun Industry

Post by AllAces on Fri Feb 08, 2013 11:25 am

Below is an interesting piece of information from a very well respected gun shop in WV. BTW, for all of you who voted for Obama, my personal thanks to you for increasing the value of my guns and ammo.
Status Report from Valley Guns in West Virginia

Attention F.B. fans: to follow will be several IMPORTANT Info updates about the status of the gun industry currently, followed by an INVENTORY UPDATE: We traveled to Texas for Industry meetings concerning the shortages, here's what we were told.

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 nationwide 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...

Related commentary from Bob Owens:

They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants — of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned.

This is a society preparing for war.

Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the Statists have done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done, Democrats!

We had a massive hail storm here last spring so business was crazy busy last summer so I stocked up on supplies. 15,000 primers, 15,000 Zero 185's, 8#'s of Bullseye, 2 cases of CCI SV, and 2 cases of Eley Target. I also picked up a really nice old model 41 for the wife's "Christmas present". Man am I glad I did now! And no I am not a horder. Horders keep it, I plan on shooting it.

I didn't vote for him. Right now, I do not have a President. And yes, it will get far worse. It is not all about the guns and ammo. It is about our Constitutional freedoms.

Anyone who wants to hear my ideas on how to counter these attacks on our Constitutional Freedoms, please contact me off line. There are effective ways to get the attention of your elected representatives.

No not WE the people, just over 50% did, that leaves over 150 million that did not.

Accounting for voter turnout, eligibility, and numerous other factors, it is actually a much higher number of people that didn't vote for the winner.

That's great thinking, Scott. Kudos.

I will also be shooting each caliber I own for 5 years. I know what communists do when elected. How people missed this truly makes me fear for our nation.
