…It's natural that we think the firearms industry is thriving as a result. But that is, unfortunately, not the case. Granted, a couple of categories are running at full-capacity, unable to keep up with orders. But, according to industry watchdog Jim Shepard's Outdoors Wire, the manufacture of rifles, pistols, shotguns or revolvers that aren't labeled "tactical", "personal defense" or contain letters "AR" is not thriving at all. In fact, some gun companies' entire product categories not so labeled are not being manufactured. With adequate inventories already on hand to accommodate the slow demand, the manufacturing capacities are focused on the hot sellers. Today's manufacturing processes are so focused and efficient that changing over a line can take a year, or longer. That's why there is more demand than can be met in the immediate term. That's true in ammunition, too. Yes, you'll have a tough time finding those calibers that are common to many platforms (civilian and military, hunting and target shooting, etc), but other calibers are generally available…
