In a somewhat sad and shocking slap of reality to the face of our ‘recovery’ and ‘freedom-based-debt-holdings’, today’s press-release-of-the-day (since we still haven’t heard from BATS) goes to Sturm, Ruger (the 4th largest gun-maker in the US) who after receiving orders for over one million units in Q1 has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

 

Forget PCLN, CRM, NFLX, here’s where the real action is!

RGR is up a whopping 571% from Nov 07 while the S&P 500 is down 3%…

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. Reports Strong First Quarter Bookings

March 21, 2012

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

 

Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:

 

The Company’s Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms.

 

Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms.


Despite the Company’s continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.


The Company expects to resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May 2012.

The Company will announce its results and file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2012 on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, after the close of the stock market.

    What? You hadn’t noticed that since 9/11 and then the 2008 election, that the American public has been quietly arming itself? I live on Long Island, NY and every sporting goods store has had trouble keeping both guns and ammunition on their shelves. I have contacts all over the US and Long Island is not an isolated case, but a typical case. There is such a demand for both guns and ammunition that have been flowing into the US to legitimate buyers at unprecedented rates. That’s one reason that the present administration is desperately trying t o get importation of both stopped. An armed citizenry is free citizenry.
