This is not just Ruger, this is the case for most of the industry. In the middle of March, S&W was backordered almost as much as their total sales last year. Getting Colt AR-15s in any sort of volume? Yeah, good luck. I don't know if it's the upcoming election, or people being scared of the end of the world/whatever or a combination of both, but guns are going pretty darn fast. In mid-January, the shop I work at had our one week long anniversary sale. We started with 82 S&W M&P15 Sport models, we had sold them all before the sale ended and now we can't get them replaced. I hope this year doesn't turn out to be 2008/2009 all over again.
