    I was in the gunshop and they said it feels so bad right now because the manufacturers don't ship/work during the holidays + the recent run. It'll all get caught up soon.

    I called at least 10 big online ammo stores, all out, one of them said the expected date for 9mm ammo according to the manufacturer is August! Then I checked a couple of nearby stores that both said they had at least 10 boxes, 30 mins from the time I left work to the time I went to pick them up they were down to 2 boxes, it is _that_ bad and the prices are sky high. The only handgun ammo they had left was a single 40 S&W and a single 45 acp box.

    God I hope so. I have quite a bit but, I sure wish I hadn't passed over all those .22lr bulk ammo deals at Bi-Mart! I'm down to my last 3000 rounds!!!:(

    At Cabelas in Springfield today, most of the usual handgun and rifle in stock. Just not stacks and stacks of it. I was shocked by the prices...then I remembered I was at Cabelas.

    The Bi-Mart off 122nd has a bunch of S&W 40 and that was about it. Bi-mart on Falk Rd in Vancouver had small mag rifle primers... I scored 500 big whoop. They also had 40 S&W.
    I heard today Portland is considering no more gun shows at the Expo. The new Portland Commie regime (a.k.a.Charlie I am the goofiest looking inbreeder Hales) has jumped on the ban everything band wagon. I think I would start looking at reloading items. This site had good reloading equipment ( or use to) https://fsreloading.com/notes-from-greg/lee-precision-new-for-2013.html
    I have a feeling it is not going to be to long before it's going to be cheap at twice the price.

    Yep......Conserve, until we know what happens and if things pan out. This is worse than in 2008.

    My local bi mart gets small orders every now and then. I stop in every few days just to check and grab a few boxes at a time.

    Just gotta keep your eyes open.

    I had a difficult time in Reno buying .22LR. Scheel's, Cabela's and Sportsman's Warehouse all out. Sport's Authority had a bunch. I kept thinking "out of .22LR? That's crazy!" The .223, .5.56 and 7.62 I can understand based on the panic, but 22? I was really concerned because I wanted to introduce my 20 year old daughter to shooting and left all my ammo in Kalifornia, figuring I would just pick up more in Reno. I wanted her to start with the .22 and work up in caliber. Thankfully, I was able to find some, but I had to work at it.

    Our local Bi Mar is out of almost everything. They get shipments 2 times per week, sometimes there is ammo on them, sometimes not. Nothing in the last 2 weeks. I have been there most mornings when they open to try and get something.

    They have some .40, and some $ 22 a box 9mm. No .223, no 9mm, no 12 gauge anything, no .22. A few rifle calibers, some .38 and .357. All other local suppliers are also out, anybody that does have is standing on the price real hard.

    We will have to curtail most target practice this spring if we cannot find more ammo. We are going to set up to reload, IF we can find the equipment, IF we can pay the price, and IF we can find powder and primers. We should have not been so dependent on purchased ammo all along. Big mistake.

    I see this as a very logical first step to SHTF. Other things are likely to follow soon. Our government wants our guns, and to take away as much of our Constitutional rights as they can, and they keep spending our economy into the hole and making paper money worthless.

    Why won't stores get restocked? Did all the ammo plants worldwide burn down or something?

    Sounds orchestrated to me.... no shipments til august? so after it all gets banned.... sounds like they are shutting down and redoing the tooling to add microstamping :paranoid:

    I was thinking about the same thing, so demand has increased, they can increase the supply, unless there is technical reason that limits their production lines to a certain rate/capacity.

    It is really weird this is all happening at one time. The Gun band hanging over our heads, record guns sales with shelves empting then filling back up for more people to buy. But what good are the guns with no Ammo or prices that not many people can afford. I really think the Ammo thing has somthing to do with our Dirty Goverment.
