Has anyone noticed that this little phrase has become the "lie- de jour" for every manufacturer and distributor that hasn't been able to get their product in by the deadline.

I remember for a while DSA was really backed up and people were getting responses from DSA that a great majority of their FAL's were going to Iraq, instead of the truth that they were just running late.

No one in Iraq (with the exception of some kooks playing mercenary) is running a FAL, but everyone who is in the firearm business is saying that their products are in the sandy hellhole.

Well, at least it's not a new phenomenon. When I was in military school in 1966 we were rationed uniform brass because Vietnam was taking so much of it.

Only time I've ever heard that excuse was when my dealer ran out of 40 year old Yugoslavian 7.62x39 :scrutiny:
