    this is terrible but they have factorys as far flung as Austria so I doubt it will effect the consumers quickly. it may however result in some changes in how they allocate funds so they probobly wont be coming out with a new semi-auto shotgun bye the close of this summer to put it simply.

      Most likely RipoffThanDirt has already doubled the price of Rugers.
