Others follow Ruger's lead?

Gun maker Ruger recently announced it would not take additional orders until production caught up with its backlog of gun orders already in place.  Now a gun store owner in Houston is quoted by KHOU-TV as saying there are others who've placed a hold on orders until things get caught up.

No specific gun makers were mentioned in connection with order moritoriums, but the KHOU report did quote the dealer as saying it can take up to a year to take delivery on some Smith and Wesson orders.

When it announced its moratorium last month, Ruger said it had orders for over a million guns in the first quarter of this year. At the time, Ruger said it expected to have its backlog cleared and to be in a position to resume taking orders by late May.
