    CDDN (a large online retailer) has shut down their website due to an inability to meet demand. CDNN Sports, Inc.

    An email blast that they sent out this morning states that they are only taking orders by phone and that all prices are subject to change. Their 800 phone number has been busy for two hours.

    Cheaper Than Dirt replied to my order for mags this week stating that they were on an indefinite hold due to supply issues.

    Some of the best performing stock last year was Smith and Wesson. They must be tickled pink right now!

    Yep, several other sites around the web are like that too. Must of ran into at least 4-5 yesterday. Looks like most of the bigger ones that are not shut down, are displaying notices about increased shipping times, backorders are out weeks, and one site that had what I was looking for, said it wouldn't be available until 3/10/13! Seriously crazy right now, never seen anything like this.

    Things have been crazy for sure. Hopefully after 1 year, and God willing everything settles down, we all can look back at this and laugh at the craziness.

    Just found this on the front page of ClassicFirearms.us. They've turned off their phones!:



    Due to extremely high order volume, we are experiencing long delays in processing/shipping orders. Please expect and allow 8 - 14 business days for your order to leave our building. We have doubled our shipping staff and are working nights in an effort to process orders as quickly as possible.

    We have turned off our phones from accepting in-bound calls so we may focus on processing/shipping orders. This was a tough decision, but one we truly believe will best serve our customers. If necessary to contact us, please do do via email though the Contact Us page on our site. Please only send us an email if absolutely necessary as we are receiving hundreds per day and these take our time away from processing orders. However, we will respond to every email we receive.

    We are still accepting orders though our website for those who are accepting of the delays in receiving your orders.

    NOTE: Your card will be charged at the time you place your order. We realize this is not ideal when there are long delays in processing, but that is the way our software works at this time. If this is not acceptable, please do not place an order with us during this time of record volume.

    We value you as a customer and appreciate your understanding.

    When we had a merchant account this was against the CC companies policies and could get you banned from being able to take CC's!

    I've seen web sites that sell ammo showing no inventory or only stuff like russian surplus.
