    Not true for Ruger, and I am speaking from first hand observation.

    Ruger has a very diverse product line and they are continuing to introduce new models all the time. It will be a long while before they will be able to catch up and have all model lines delivered.

    all that money gun and ammo makers paid the govt to ban norinco who sold quality guns at a fraction of the price and would have made every gun out there has paid off. this is what they want people crawling thru mud to get a gun then turning around and crawling to get ammo for it paying many times what they are worth. capitalism my a$$

    As has been mentioned, these orders are from retailers who are responding to the panic shoppers who, themselves, are desparately looking for weapons.

    But now that the panic has temporarily subsided, retailers are free to cancel the orders.

    "2,000,000 orders on backlog" isn't necessarily a substantive victory for us.

    Personally, I hadda go to gunbroker and buy a 98% Ruger #1 cause nobody, including Buds, had any new ones. It's a great gun though. I only paid $750 for it.

    Now if I could only find some ammo .............

    Seriously, if obummer has any brains at all, he and biden have surreptitiously bought stock in Smith and Wesson and Ruger. They have been wonderful for the balance sheets and income statements of gun companies.

    Pity Glock isn't publically traded.

    Splattergun says it quite well. Any business needs a backlog to properly plan production with issues related to material inventories, production schedules and staffing. Backlog is different from back order.

    I would imagine that the orders estimated for 1st quarter 2013. But, those are pretty amazing trends. Ruger is hopping!

    That is hard to believe. I wonder if Ruger has trouble finding ammunition?

    I've already experienced that with S&W in regards to the junky trgger on my M&P40 VTAC. Instead of seding it back to S&W I'm letting my gunsmith fix it. My gunsmith is simply great.
