Looks like that website wants you to create an account just to read the article. Ain't happening. I get enough spam email. Anyway, is Ruger in financial trouble?

"A line of credit is credit source extended to a government, business or individual by a bank or other financial institution. A line of credit take several forms, such as overdraft protection, demand loan, special purpose, export packing credit, term loan, discounting, purchase of commercial bills, traditional revolving credit card account, etc. It is effectively a source of funds that can readily be tapped at the borrower's discretion. Interest is paid only on money actually withdrawn. (However, the borrower may be required to pay an unused line fee, often an annualized percentage fee on the money not withdrawn.) Lines of credit can be secured by collateral, or may be unsecured.

Lines of credit are often extended by banks, financial institutions and other licensed consumer lenders to "creditworthy customers" (though certain special-purpose lines of credit may not have creditworthiness requirements) to address liquidity problems; such a line of credit is often called a personal line of credit. The term is also used to mean the credit limit of a customer, that is, the maximum amount of credit a customer is allowed. "

Doubtful that Ruger is in financial trouble, otherwise bankers wouldn't give them a big line of credit, unless Ruger totally baked the books. I added text changes to note the pertinent phrase.

Blessings upon Wells Fargo for extending credit in an era of banks running from firearms manufacturers on the flimsy, phony basis of Political Correctness.
