Today, I just went to my LGS to pick up some Glock mags. There were plenty of mags for all different pistols on the shelf.

There were also plenty of AR platform rifles on the shelves. Glock 19's and 17's in black and FDE too. 9mm's were nowhere to be found in the past few months.

Last time I was there, a couple of weeks ago, they were wiped out. As were most of the other gun shops in my area.

I didn't notice how much ammo was available, but I did go to Wally world afterwards, and they didn't have any pistol ammo still.

I'm even noticing less price gouging on "guns for sale" on some of the local forums and sales sites.

How are things in your area?

Not yet! You got lucky. We have to get thru the BS that the Senate will deal with in April and big mouth Uncle Joe who is working on "gun control" as a distraction from the poor leadership skills of this administration. Supplies and items will come in and out of stock for next few months.

i certainly hope so. i haven't bought any guns or ammo since Newtown. i already had enough to get by with, and i try to not buy when prices are temporarily (i hope) inflated. i'm already too good at buying high and selling low.

at some point supply will catch up to demand, and things will return to whatever the new normal turns out to be.

the risk i take in waiting is that some things will be banned under the new normal.

I certainly hope things are getting better. I called my gun suppler today about the M&P 40C I bought & paid for in December. At the time they said it could take as long as 3 months. Now they're saying 6 - 8 months. I'd go back & take the money I paid for it but at the deal I got I can wait. This is a police supply store & they give great deals to LEO, Security & Military, well below the going prices even 3 months ago BUT - they're down on the list of shipment priorities.

The deal was $455 with 3 mags & Trijicon night sights.

Not here. No ammo for me, but plenty of ammo for everyone else. That is, unless you shoot a .45, 9mm, or 22lr, then you are just as SOL as I am. Mags have always been pretty easy to find. AR15 and AK still in the 3000+ range. People around here tend to be frugal, so when prices went to WELL above retail, people just stopped buying them.

I don't blame you. For a price like that, I'd wait too.

Things are a little better here. Went to fun show last weekend and seen prices were much better. Pistol ammo is still hard to come by though.

Local store had a few Higher end AR's with in 100 dollars of normal price.
Supplies will come and go. Then down the road no more. This current victory is just a slow down.
They are not going away. If they can't do it at a federal level yet they will work one state at a time.
Remember this next time you vote

NOt in the market for a new gun right now, but I am seeing an uptick of more ammo on the shelves. 45, 308 and 5.56 and some 40 anytime I go. But, with 9mm they shipments come in every day, but you have to be right there when it is laid out to buy it. If not, you are out of luck. Also, there still is a 2 box max.

22LR and 9mm still seem to be scarce in these parts but there seems to be a definite improvement in supplies of the other caliber handgun ammo vs a few weeks ago. Gunbot also seems to be showing more in stock ammo. Given no more high profile, mass shootings things will continue to slowly improve IMO.

I think it's going to take awhile before it ever gets "better." In my neck o the woods (West Virginia) all my local stores have been cleaned out of firearms and ammo.

Once the panic is over and the companies can replenish the things that flew off shelves at light speed, then will we see it better.

That is unless our esteemed lawmakers run another attempt at gun control and the panic process begins again.

The current crop of hirelings has shown their true, deceitful colors. May we never forget that we're one betrayal away from effective 2A-perdition. Never, so long as we breathe, so long as we're vigilant, and so long as we hold their very feet and hands to the proverbial fire of our wrath and watchfulness.

I wish it was getting better. Literally no ammo at bass pro or any Walmart in Orlando.

Just came back from LGS. Large sign posted "Ammo sales restricted to Range use & maximum of 1 box of ammo per day" (1 box Total.. not a box in various calibers).
They had 2 ARs and a deposit was placed on one while I was there. (was in store less than 10 min) They had a total of ~15 handguns in stock (1 Glock, 2 Kahr, 2 Berettas, the rest were various Ruger & Taurus models).
Cabellas was out of MOST calibers today & Bass Pro had but a handful of handgun rounds.

Hopefully things start to improve.
Respectfully,
Automatic
