President Barack Obama is, arguably, theÂ 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, AmericansÂ 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 followingÂ 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 theyâ€™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: Canâ€™t get enough parts to produce any more product.
COLT: Production runs increasing weeklyâ€¦bottle necked by Bolt carrierâ€™s.
LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacityâ€¦canâ€™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.
RELOADERSâ€¦ ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extraâ€™s for reloading purposesâ€¦ 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, weâ€™ll keep you postedâ€¦
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.
But this may only be a part of why thereâ€™s so much demand. There are millions of Americans who are genuinely concerned with not just the government taking their guns, but all of their other Constitutionally protected freedoms as well.
We understand what happens in regimes that disarm their people. Weâ€™ve seen thedemocide of the last century, which left hundreds of millions of people dead or displaced when their governments turned on them.
We are determined to prevent it from happening in the land of the free.
Everyone in the news is hearing about guns and weapons, Â after looking at ammo buying it certainly seems to be sold out no matter where you go.
The question is are we sold outÂ becauseÂ America is buying up all the weapons or are we sold outÂ becauseÂ the FEDS canâ€™t keep their hands off of it.
If the FEDS are buying it they must be getting ready for some big event, and Â we can almost bet it is for right here in America.
The Federal Government knows they are trying to take our weapons, so if they know there is going to be a fight among the American people it seems pretty logical they would want enough ammo to back themselves up.
Might a civil war be on itâ€™s way 1776 style?
