Default backorder blues

Does anyone know why so many handguns seem to be on backorder? I'm looking for Glock, H&K, Kel Tec, Ruger, etc...

I think everyone who might want a new gun is buying now before Obama gets re-elected and who knows what gun control bills he'll pass.

Yeah, it's probably hippies, most likely.

Bax, where do you live? I'm guessing Illinois...

Please stop by the intro thread when you can, ya know, just to say hello...

Who said the SOB is going to get reelected?

It's getting harder to find guns online, and they ones that are in stock take forever to get shipped because of the HUGE amount of orders everyone is getting.

Obama administration has caused an increase in firearms and ammo sales.

If there were a contest for "Best Firearms Salesperson", Obama would get the award (for the second time).

The Cricket and the Chimp are tip-toeing around the Constitution causing quite a stir.
