Can't make enough guns

I received an email this morning from an on-line firearms retailer. It began like this:
After spending the first six weeks of 2012 attending various firearms industry shows, including the NSSF Shot Show in Las Vegas with the highest dealer attendance of record, there was one obvious recurring theme from every manufacturer we visited with...."we just can't make enough firearms". Although we fully expected another surge later in 2012, it has already started as the ATF continues to report all time record highs in background/NICS checks as well as Conceal Carry/CCW permit applications.
I've started to see more out of stock notations next to gun and ammo offerings on various websites. What was first reported as a Christmas firearms buying surge appears to still be gaining momentum in late February.
