    I can find everything except .357 FMJ"s.... which seem non-existent.

    Maybe ATF is banning ammo now in Arizona to leave a clearer path for the illegals coming across the border, having drug wars, and doing home invasions. Or maybe everyone in Arizona is 'arming' up.

    While I am away I am having my wife buy any ammo she sees when she and my kids go to the range. Still having a hard time buying 45LC locally but we dont seem to have the .380 problem some people are.

    I find gunbroker to be a waste of time. 95% of the people there are clogging up the site by trying to sell stuff for more than you would pay for it if you went out and bought it retail. Out of the 10s of thousands of entries, you might find a handfull sincere auctions and items that are priced reasonably. If you have time to wade through all the crap you can sometimes find a fair deal but the price gougers and scalpers spoil it for me. Sure, you can get ammo there, if you are willing to pay above retail for it.

    Obama panic
    Greed.
    Hoarding.
    People who think they have to buy the entire shipment of ammo that comes in before someone else does.
    Folks that feel 5000 rounds of ammo sitting on a shelf at home isn't enough.

    You have to keep looking. I check the 2 local Walmarts weekly plus the local sporting goods / gun shops. I also scan the web sites for buys.
    I have never been unable to find ammo. If anything, my stock has increased over the last 8 - 10 months. You just have to work at it and not count your time or gas as a cost of ammo.

    No problem with buying ammo or reloading components off the shelf of the local gun stores here in Connecticut. It's been that way for months.

    One thing is for sure, with the amount of ammunition that has been purchased in the last year I feel safe in saying that no foreign country would dare invade us do to the fact the the local citizens probably are now better stock than their military.

    I agree, Thought I was alone in that feeling.
    Sportsmans Warehouse finally has started putting the primers on the shelves instead of behind the counter..a good sign of improvements. Another store here always has ammo...but just a few bucks more.
