Keywords: order rate exceeds, capacity to rapidly fulfill, more than 1 million Rugers

Ruger GunsAfter our story on the Rise of the Prepper, we have been inundated with emails from readers telling us how hard it’s becoming for them to obtain certain types of ammo. We also had a reader send us a press release this morning from Ruger.

Effective Immediately Ruger has stopped accepting Firearms Orders. The Company says that they have had to temporarily suspend the acceptance of new orders after receiving requests for more than one million units.

Here is the Official Statement form Ruger:

SOUTHPORT, CT –Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:

  • The Company’s Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms.
  • Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms.
  • Despite the Company’s continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.
  • The Company expects to resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May 2012.

In the Rise of the Prepper article, we warned that with Guns, Gold and Emergency Food all setting record sales numbers we will likely see major shortages hit the marketplace. As people begin to stock up on preparedness related items in response to the coming election cycle, we will likely see nationwide shortages similar to what happened during the elections in 2008. I fear this is only the beginning.

They're postponing needed plant expansion and construction due to economic fears if Romney, Obama, or Santorum get elected, not to mention further second amendment violations. (1 image)

I have never forgiven Ruger for supporting (and even pushing) Poppy Bush's alleged Assault Weapons Ban,his proposal to restrict semi-auto handguns to military and police only,and when that failed,his ban on magazines that hold over 10 rounds.

Ruger did all this because they didn't make so-called Assault Weapons,and at that time weren't making auto-loaders. They saw this as a sound strategy to build the company bottom line,and to hell with the 2nd Amendment or what was best for citizens.

I haven't bought any of their products since then,and will never buy another one.

I only recall S&W supporting the Xlinton AWB. I don't recall any boycotts from the CCW or general gun community. Certainly nothing compared to the fury with S&W selling us out during the Xlinton years.

S&W was the real traitor to the gun community.

That's because it was Clinton,not a Bush.

Bush was bad on gun rights but Xlinton was a disaster. I don't see how you honestly compare the two.
