Ten years ago I had just recently acquired the legal right to buy a handgun and struggled to pay rent, sharing an apartment with two others.A decade to stock up and few people did...
It will, if by no other fact than the market size has grown dramatically with first time gun buyers who, until now, where using zero round/month (and probably wondering why people could ever want more than 50 rounds, ever).It could get worse too
One thing that makes it worse than the TP shortage, is that was merely a one time increase in demand because everyone uses TP already and probably didn't change their usage patterns -- it ironed itself out after an initial buying surge....

I see this like the TP shortage in that, I think ammo producers already operated manufacturing facilities near maximum daily output...all we can do now is wait for the market to have less demand or production to increase...both of which are probably a long, long way off for ammo.
Bean counters don’t see inventory that way. They like “just in time”. Too much. Across all industry.I dunno. If I were a manufacturer, I'd be cranking up production as much as possible because, even if things stabilize now, there will always be another crisis/panic to buy up any excess production they may make by overproduction now.
yes, but how many tens of thousands of rounds do you have stored in your workshop?Not the first and not the last. Meh, I'll let everyone else pay $.50/rd for 9mm and almost $1/rd for 5.56.
I buy when things are "normal" and try to be mindful when going to the range. I don't take a "shoot it all up" stance and really try to just get the practice in I NEED and keep the "fun" shooting to a minimum (during shortages anyway).yes, but how many tens of thousands of rounds do you have stored in your workshop?
many shooters have just 2 choses today - stay home and just fondle their firearms or pay the price to go shooting
I noted the price of 7.62x39 has not gone up that much since March, SG has those wooden crates back in for the same price I paid back then
still .37/rnd for Russian steel case
I used to get 500 rounds of Russian steel case for $100, but this isn't 1990 any longer and prices will never go back to even 2010 prices
I guess you can get a lot of dry firing in with snap caps
