I placed an order from Lagger-Pro on the 22nd and havent even got a shipping notice or backorder notice yet.

I placed an order from Tactical Warehouse on the 26th and was notified the item I wanted is out of stoick for 2-3 weeks.

I checked surefires website and found out their shipping department is closed until Jan 5th! for "inventory" which I think means "taking a long Christmas and New Years break"

The one and ONLY company I have placed an order with recently, who had the product in stock and shipped timely was Electrolumens.

Everybody runs their inventory down at year end for several reasons:

1.  So that they have less work to do counting the remaining inventory, &,

2.  So that management can show the shareholders that they don't have a lot of money tied up in inventory, &,

3.  So that management can show shareholders that they are turning over inventory quickly, i.e., annual sales dollars divided by the year end inventory dollars = turns per year.  This is just a function of # 2.  Both are games that can be, and are, abused by management.

The biggest reason that companies run their inventories down at the end of the year is that they have to pay taxes on it.
