    The ammo shortage is officially over.

    I was at my local Wal-Mart today, and on the shelf they had pretty much every pistol caliber and almost all rifle too. I got a couple 100-rd value packs of .380 (seen only a couple times in the last year, and I left 6 boxes there) and a 50-rd .223 HP. There was a ton of .40 and 9mm.

    How much was the 380? I'm buying some from a friend and I'd like a reference point.

    I've tried to keep a check on WW a couple of times a week for over a year. We have two in Dothan. I've missed every shipment of 380...

    Here in MN the shelves are bare for handgun calibers every trip. Very rarely do they have what I want and when it's out I buy it.

    .223 is back, I can find that most of the time.

    Yep. I even saw a few boxes of defensive hollow-points at my wal-mart today. I haven't seen those there for a looooonngg time.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Walmarts around here have gotten better, plenty of .40 and a good bit of 9mm, also picked up two bricks of .22 federal. but clerks still saying people are buying up the .22 as fast as they get them.
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    I checked my WalMart and still see empty shelves except for rifle and shotgun plus a smattering of 22.

    Yeah, I didn't make much money last month so enjoy my ammo I cannot afford. This month is good so expect the shortage to start up again in about a week. Sorry for hogging all the ammo this last year.

    The local shelves in my neck of the woods are a little better but they still have more "top shelf" ammo rather than cheaper, bulk, "range" ammo. The couple of on-line sites I've bought from are pretty bare right now, especially for .357 mag. I have noticed the 9mm stocks seem plentiful.

    Shelves are still pretty empty here. They try to make it look sort of full by spreading out the hunting rifle calibers and .223.

    Same for mine in Conover, NC last week. It's creeping back. Seems that some stores are much more serious about ordering. We have one WM that is getting a good bit, and 2 that have almost nothing. Looked like there were 8 boxes when I got mine. If I could have gotten away with it I might have grabbed all of them. But marital bliss stands in the way of that. And explaining that it's for her gun would not have helped.
