    A fairly straight-forward story about how the spike/bubble/panic/call-it-what-you-will in gun and ammo buying has created demand for skilled and semi-skilled jobs.

    Yep, if we can send and land a Mars rover, we can make some .224 slugs/.223 ammo.

    yep just think where this economy would be without G&A sales, how about sales taxes, P&R also. Citizens voting with their money has to be very unsettling to progressives.

    Nah, they'll just assume that the increased sales are from a small number of paranoid survival nuts.

    I din't think that it would even so much as cross their mind that normal folks buy or 'have a need for' ammo.

    80,000 bullets sounds low... especially since they sell both cartridges and bullets. I guess it takes a lot more time to make frangible ammo, or the machinery needed to make it is cost prohibitive.

    Needless to say, I doubt them doubling production of oddball lead-free frangible ammunition is going to do much for people looking for cheap FMJ ball ammunition...

    Maybe Oboma is on to something here. Just think it through.

    If he were to push for a ban on manufacturing, maybe it'd lead to the building of new manufacturing plants and create new jobs. How about a ban on American built autos. Bingo, increased auto sales. Instead of taxing the wealthy to fund their stimulas programs, why not just scare them into spending money to stimulate the economy. POTUS may be a LOT smarter than he looks. Maybe not. :eek:

    That is nice the dude is expanding, but I am not really seeing any thing here that screams job boom.

    The real question here would be will the jobs still be there when supply (hopefully), catches up with demand. Are these permanent positions or are they just temporary jobs to fill until things get back to normal in the industry? Time will tell.
