    He also said that it's been hard lately to keep certain calibers on the shelf. That's bad for me because it's mainly the 40 S&W that's being snatched up.

    I checked the WM about 5 miles away on Saturday, and they had nothing in handgun caliber, and not much of anything else.

    Today, I went to my WM about 2 miles away and they had about 6-7 boxes of WWB in 9mm. I bought 3. The cashier said that they just can't get it from the warehouse. They order it and sometimes get a little, and sometimes they don't. He says their suppliers can't keep up with the demand.

    Mine had no handgun caliber except a box of 250 value pack 45acp.
    I bought it.

    A few miles away, they had no handgun caliber ammo except 2 boxes of 9mm blazer brass.
    I bought those too.

    I check each and EVERY time I go in Wally World. Over the past 3 weeks, between two different stores, I've picked up over a 1000 rounds of WWB 9mm FMJ and 300 rounds of WWB JHP 9mm. Box here, 3 boxes there, box of 100 here, 5 boxes of 50 there...It all adds up. Now I've got my 1000 rounds for my Tactical Response class and can continue to build on my SD rounds and FMJ rounds for home practice. "Patience Grasshopper"!!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I went to my local walmart this morning and the ammo shelves were almost bare. The spot where they keep the 9mm was completely empty. The lady behind the counter asked what I wanted, I told her 9mm but you seem to be out of it. She said no, we have a case right here on the floor, just haven't stocked the shelves yet. She opened the case and sold me a box of wwb, $19.95/100. I would have bought more, but didn't have the cash on me.
    There were also several other cases of different ammo on the floor unopened.

    I carry .38 Spcl Hornady 125 gr XTP. Midway, CTD, ABELS, Cabelas, etc. all are out of stock and don't know when it will be in. Some aren't even taking backorders. I have friends that are having same problem in 9MM and .40 S&W with other brands. I don't know the reason, but there is definetly an ammo shortage right now.

    Went to all three wlamarts here today, Academy and Gander MTN. No 9mm, 45, or .223 could be found. A local gun shop had some off brand 0f 9mm for like $45 for box of 50 rds.

    things seem to be ramping up in anticipation of the OBAMA 500% gun & ammo tax.

    buy now or never!

    Spotted some more BB 9mm yesterday at the WM in Pinellas Park, FL. Was at the one off of Pondella Rd in Ft Myers today and they had some left also. I should have bought more 9mm but I was on a mission for 12ga today. Bought 2 Federal 100 packs for about $45OTD.

    The problem with the "everybody is buying it up because of OHB" theory is that ammo that has never been popular and is always around is not available either. I'm sure part of the shortage is due to a "panic" buy up, but there is more involved than just that.

    It feels a lot more like "we'll hold back supplies and then jack up the prices sky high to make more profit" to me. I'm sorry but most of our problems in this country are due to the big business folks and not due to which administration is in. I'm pretty sure the "bean counters" are going to use this election as a scare tactic to reap big profits on guns and ammo, regardless of what the new President does. If he doesn't go ape on gun control outside the AWB ( a good possibility) watch the prices go down and the supply suddenly reappear. Fear of the AWB would drive prices up on ARs and .223 ammo, but it wouldn't make good market sense for it to effect the prices and availability of 5 shot revolvers and .38 Special ammo.

    I'll wait a few weeks (I have a supply of ammo at home) and see what happens before I get too crazy about the whole issue. I really do believe it is more likely to be a market ploy than a political impact right now.

    Market ploy or political impact, who knows and it really doesn't matter to me. The Blazer Brass is still under $9 a box so I'd be buying it anyway to keep up the range stock. Everytime I hit WM, I buy ammo. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy walking out with more ammo. Now for panic (kidding here), not being able to find any 147g HST, that's got me concerned.
