    The gun stores around here have all been showing increased inventories lately.

    I spoke with a police distributor in my area concerning this. He stated that the Remington Factory Rep told him it would be till around August before they could even THINK about producing enough to keep product on the shelves. So, I would suspect around Aug-Sept the shelves MIGHT start to see improvement. (At least we hope so!)

    I got plenty of guns for now although I would buy a few more if the price were to be to my liking.

    What I want is ammo. The makers are building billions each week so where are these bullets going? I am getting the idea that the shortage is due to a perception the makers want so they can charge more. We have about 50 stores in this area that sells ammo. Not one of them can supply me with any .45acp, 9mm, 38spl, .357 or .40cal It has been like this for over three months.
    A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.

    I paid $42 for WWB 100 round 9mm value pack Saturday. I nearly cried. Used to buy the same at Walmart for $14.99.

    My local gun store had ample supply of most popular pistols and revolvers and a huge stock of 9mm....if you want to pay the price.

    The store owner said the ammo prices are gradually coming back down to earth.....very gradually.

    I can't imagine people stockpiling ammo at the prices it's going for right now.
    And yet it seems to be the case.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    As soon as I can get more aluminum blocks lol

    it's almost as hard as getting gunpowder for ammunition.
    FFL 07 / SOT 2. I run a small hobby shop that makes custom firearms, and high performance ammunition.

    $14.99 for 100-rounds of 9mm @ WW?? Maybe for 50-rounds but I don't recall 100-rounds for $14.99?

    Maybe about $21.37 for 100-rounds of Federal or $31.97 for 100-rounds of Remington. And $13.97 for 50-rounds of Federal.
