    Status Report from Valley Guns in West Virginia
    Attention F.B. fans: to follow will be several IMPORTANT Info updates about the status of the gun industry currently, followed by an INVENTORY UPDATE: We traveled to
    Texas for Industry meetings concerning the shortages, here's what we were told.
    Smith & Wesson-is running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.
    RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.
    FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1.
    Remington-Maxed out!

    DPMS: Can't get enough parts to produce any more product.
    COLT: Production runs increasing weekly...bottle necked by Bolt carrier's.
    LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacity... can't get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.
    Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.
    AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nationwide shortage of allcalibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of
    1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians arethird in line.
    MAGPUL is behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.
    RELOADERS... ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammoFIRST. There are no extra's for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things
    get caught up.
    Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned,we'll keep you posted...
    Related commentary from Bob Owens:
    They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants — of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.
    Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned.
    This is a society preparing for war.

    Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the statists have done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done, Democrats!
