Unreal trying to find anything in the 9mm or .40 category. It appears most others are similar.. Wonder when things get back in stock.

Shutdowns? Portland Chaz? Election Year? OK who has the real scoop.. :emoji_nerd:

Would assume people burning down multiple city blocks in large cities across the country may have something to do with it. I don’t own a pistol so haven’t noticed. I’m more of tactical shotgun loaded with buckshot kinda guy.

I am down to about 1000 rounds now of 9mm. I have stopped shooting until I can restock.

Yup. It's all across the country. Handgun ammo is selling like crazy! Prices have doubled (when you can find it).

It's like the TP crisis - people are buying it even if they don't need it in fear that they may run out. This includes people that aren't shooting, so all they end up doing is stockpiling.

For my handguns, I pretty sure that I have enough. I did want to grab a couple of boxes as my neighbor just got a handgun and wanted ot come with me to my property to shoot. No luck!

I did pick up some rifle ammo (2 boxes) to ensure my next few seasons if it gets really ugly.

First a pandemic then people started burning cities. I gave my pastor 4 boxes of .380 auto after he bought a gun and couldn’t load it.... Yes you read that correctly.

shortages might end after the election depending on which way it goes.

Agree, hoping this is the case. I think you're right though, likely to be shortages until at least thru November.

Crazy times. I went to get some more shells for the wife's 6.5 creedmoor. Thank goodness they had one box of the hornaday I needed. I went to stock and field and Dunhams. They did not have one single box of handgun ammo at either store. I tried to order some from midway online. They are out of stock on almost everything also.

Yep, tried Midway, Rogers, etc. The well is dry!

No luck for me this past weekend at Scheels for .45 ACP or .300 blackout. Plenty of shotgun shells though so loaded up for Duck season. They were only allowing 15 people in the gun area at a time, so didn't get to browse. Probably a good thing. Lol

Think I read there are 5 million new gun owners so far this year. If Crazy Uncle Joe wins and anoints Beto as his gun czar, all bets are off. How long can rounds last inside the green ammo cans with a good gasket - 20 years? 50 years? Glad I haven't been shooting much the past few years.

I wouldn't worry about the next 20 years, more worried about the next 6-12 months. I live in a highly urbanized area and have friends who are staunch conservatives. They still think we can reason with violent people as they think it is noble to say I am open minded. Some are now asking me about what they should buy as a gun.

I laugh ... I remind them that when i was warning them about the impending problem during Obama's tenure and they said I was crazy, we would get to this point. They now have a panicked look in their eye because they can't find a weapon much less ammo they can buy. A number of them live in Wauwatosa which is ground zero here in milwaukee for assaults.

I just smile and say ... at least you can trust your liberal neighbors, you know the ones you were afraid to speak up against at the school board meetings, city council meetings, neighborhood block parties, etc. when they were demanding all these crazy "attack police, protect criminal" ideas.

Amazing how much the eyes can say when the lips cannot move ... :emoji_wink:

Hope they vote.. ..

Find a small town near you with a farm and home. They are a gold mine, but don't tell my secret to anyone else

Local gun shop had a pile when I was there last week of all varieties, now reloading equipment that is a different story.

Went to a pair of local shops today and was able to get .45 ACP, .300 blackout, and the almost impossible to get .308 Marlin Express. Neither place had any 9mm.

And neither one had or could order me the Savage 110 Scout rifle in .308 that I'm craving.

I've been stopping at fleet farm 3 to 4 times a week. It sells so fast when it gets stocked you just have to get lucky.

I did just order 1000 rounds of 5.56 online. It's also hit and miss finding it at online retailers.

Ammoseek.com is a good way to find it but isn't cheap
