    That is well known. My buds carry the biggest cal the department allows, never the minimum.

    The shortage is everywhere it seems.
    The last 3 or 4 CHL classes I have been part of have seen everyone complaining about the shortage of not only .380, but all of the main calibers.

    Its getting bad enough that we had to break into our club stash of .22's just to qualify some people that couldn't find ammo anywhere.

    In talking to some of the shop owners, they have no idea when they will get ammo in, and when they do, no matter what quantity they get, it doesn't last through the day.

    We are seeing a box of 550 .22 here going for 30 a box. The same box that was a 10 bill with tax in the pre Obama days.

    Its all about supply (which is slim) and demand (which is great).

    As for the .380, we haven't even seen any since the beginning of February come in.
