There was a document somewhere stating this and the amount of ammo purchased online but that amount was crossed out. The ammo that HLS purchased is strictly from Federal only.

    Considering three years of firearms inventory was sold in three weeks and enough guns have been sold since Obama was elected to outfit the Chinese and Indian armies. I would a think shortage would be possible now matter how fast you pump em out. Adding to that we have troops overseas that need ammo also. Sportsmans guide is backorder on Winchester .223 until Sept. and Oct. of this year.

    Our govt has gotten so large it is by nature full of corruption. That being the case, I never rule out conspiracy with anything they touch, say, or do. Not to say that it is, but I'm not naive enough to think it couldn't be.

    The places around my home are either out, have only certain brands/loads and are limiting the number of boxes per purchase. If we go to background checks for ammo this will be the standard as people will buy more each time they buy.

    AMMO Shortage: Conspiracy or Panic?

    Here in Vermont it seems like ammo is somewhat easy to find. I have been to my LGS's as well as Wally World and Dick's sporting Goods, all with good luck.
    I will admit though that I can find .40 caliber quicker than 9mm but its not too much trouble. I can't say for sure about any price gouging though as I haven't purchased ammo in a while. I am running seriously low. I bought 100 rnds of .40 and there was plenty on the shelf at Dick's, no 9mm at the time. 50 round count of S&B .380 FMJ for only $9.95 + tax but not bad at all.

    Mine already does, so I figure I can stash all the ammo I want, just to be fair.

    I think is 100% panic driven and hopefully it will get back to normal before long.

    I don't know where you all are from but apparently, it hasn't hit Vermont yet.

    One word - panic. We did this to ourselves.

    I bought 18 boxes of 9mm over the weekend. Some stores seem to have priority with manufacturers. This place also owns a range across town so theyve been getting huge orders for something like 15 years. Id imagine a manufacturer would want to maintain that relationship over stores that dont keep that much in stock even during good times

    Give it a couple months. When nothing happens with the AWB , the Gun Control advocates for an AWB will crawl away again.

    The credit card bills will come due. The 2000 rounds @ a dollar a round and $1500 dollar MSRP ($800.00) won't seem like such a good idea.

    This happens all the time with iPhones, iPads , game systems etc. my one son works at a large electronics retailer part time. The last 2 weeks he has been busy restocking a new game system that people thought they were going to make a killing on over the holidays selling them on eBay or Craigslist. The returns are a dozen units per customer at a time.

    I think this was a perfect storm. The election, the shootings , the Gun Control advocates and the Holidays.

    New York and some other states were hit hard, but I am hopeful that the laws will be repealed or found unconstitutional. We have to stay vigilant to protect our rights
