I agree with the staff member, there are a lot of people buying weapons, magazines, add-ons, ammunition etc.
He's 100% right.
As I put in a few other places in the forum, the high demand & strain will lower the QC or standards too.
The top firms like Hornady, Black Hills, Corbon, Federal, Winchester, Remington, etc already have staffs working 12-16 hrs a day 6/7 days a week.
New staff/HR issues, training, quality mgmt, etc takes time.
It's annoying but that's the way it is in early 2013.
