Yes. I heard from an inside source that Glock was currently looking at a backlog of in the neighborhood of 650,000 handguns, and over 1 million magazines. They are that backed up. Remember, every Tom Dick and Harry that sell the stuff went and ordered anything and everything they could at one time. Now the manufacturers are running almost 24/7 to play catch up and are saying that new orders are looking at 8-12 months lead time.
