Weaponized America: Sturm, Ruger Backlog Doubles; Gun Production, Shipments Surge

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Whether it is due to the recent governmental attempt to enforce assorted gun controlling measures in the aftermath of the Newtown, CT shooting, or, merely driven by the same catalyst that saw a surge in gun sales four years ago, namely the presidential election, one thing is certain: America is weaponizing itself at an unheard of pace, with both Sturm, Ruger shipments and units produced surpassing 500,000 each in one quarter for the first time in history.  

Shipments:

Units Produced:

Shipped and Produced – over 1 million in one quarter for the first time ever:

But the biggest shock is the backlog of guns on order (orders which RGR could not satisfy in the current quarter).

At over 2 million for the first time in history, a 40% increase from the prior quarter, and nearly a 100% from a year ago, when it comes to getting guns, American just like Cypriots in need of cash, have just one option: get in line.

If we didn’t know better, we would say that either RGR has somehow become a $0.99 app for the latest and greatest cool, faddy cell phone, whatever that may be, or, alternatively, America is preparing for war.

  1. Ain’t nothing finer than a matched set!
    Ruger 10-44 and 10-22 are IMHO the most rugged little carbines around!
    I’ve had mine for 40 some years now! They were my first guns.
    Just don’t deer hunt with hollow point .44’s! Ya waste too much meat!

  2. ZEROHEDGE AKA TYLER DURDEN IS A CORPORATE RUN FRONT(ABC MEDIA). KICKED ME OFF FOR WRITING THE TRUTH WITH SOME OF THE LANGUAGE TYLER OFTEN USES. SITE USED TO BE GOOD TILL THE SELLOUT TO THE CONGLOM. THEY SHOULD USE THEIR RESOURCES TO GET JUSTICE FOR THE CRIMES THAT THEY REPORT ON .

  3. Yup….just how many of those orders are for the private contractors & DHS? This same logic is being applied to the small arms ammo industry & do you see any ammo and components on the shelves?

    Nothing like being bullsh!tted into a sense of stupidity.
