    I just bought 300 rounds of .380acp at a Walmart, out of 500 on the shelf. It will be available after the hysteria dies down. It's so hard to find because it is a very popular round to carry.

    Here in Sweet Home Alabama there is no shortage of 9mm, 40cal, 45acp, even 357sig...at Bass Pro Shops....but 380 is zip, nada. I did find a box of FMJ 380 at Academy Sports.

    I think it will come back soon...not a soon as we would like....then everyone will go into a feeding frenzy and we will all be saying, "what am I ever goin to do with all this ammo".

    Now I have 300 rds of 44mag and no gun...anyone wanna trade for 380?

    Shooting my LCP isnt that fun in all honesty. I have 6 50rd boxes of 380 rge ammo and one box of HP. All I will need. WHen the ammo hype is over you can bet I will start shooting this little mouse again.

    This may have already been mentioned but Cabellas seems to do a good job filling their back orders...

    They also had some re-manufactured 380 the other day...

    I ended up selling my .380 due to the lack of ammo. Does me no good if I cannot practice with it.
