    Unhappy WOW AMMO/AR sales

    I have been trying to buy some ammo for my AK and SKS, 7.62x39 I have atleast 7 different places were I know I can get it. Well the lat three days It has been like trying to buy sold out concert tickets. No one has or they can't get it, even when you go to there web sites they say that they can not accept orders or run credit cards. Wow I have never seen such a frenzy. And know .223 ammo is the same way and If you want an AR forget it.

    Should have known and planned accordingly. I personally have 5,000 rounds of every caliber I use and 1,000 rounds of my defense ammo.

    I have some, and I'm comfortable. I would however like more. I hope next weeks gun show here isn't a bust. Anyone who's panic buying and didn't vote should go to the back of the line in my opinion. I'm rather bitter about things right now.

    I received the following e-mail from Buds Gun Shop earlier today. I have no idea how these prices are, but just thought I'd share.

    Dear Jeff,
    It took a couple of days, but we have managed to stabilize our replacement cost on our best selling ARs and AKs. As reported on ABCs Nightline tonight, distributors nationwide raised prices as much as 200 percent on Wednesday. Our website prices are updated hourly 24/7 to reflect our current replacement cost on each make/model. We have since contacted each of our distributors and secured our reorder costs through the end of this year.

    For example, the very popular Doublestar Mil-Spec M4 A3 .223 has returned to the original price of $699 Delivered.
    http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...s_id=411534646

    Also back to $699 Delivered, the Century International Arms Model RI965X Black Synthetic 223.
    http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id=55128

    Earlier this week we ordered just about every AR we could get our hands on. As a result, we have hundreds of ARs enroute to us now via UPS. We are offering reserve orders, first come -first serve, on some of these incoming firearms, like the Smith & Wesson M&P 15R 5.45X39, Model 811011 for $879 Delivered.
    http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id=55424

    With all these .223 AR rifles flying off the shelves, you can bet ammo prices are the next thing to skyrocket. We have you covered there also. Our PMC .223 ammo currently remains at our pre-election price of $6.99 per box.
    http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id/74001

    We appreciate your patience during this very difficult time. We will continue to work extremely hard to bring you the best prices we possibly can.

    Thank you,

    Your friends at www.BudsGunShop.com

    I received the same e-mail...

    There's alot of price increases going on out there... over at AR15.com there's a thread going about the vendors who are and have been raising their prices. There are a bunch listed, and the list keeps growing... Buds is on that list.

    I have been buying a lot of 5.7x28 in the past couple of weeks. Yesterday, I decided to buy a final 500 rounds. EVERYONE is out of the 197 ammo. I finally dug up a place that had it and placed my order.

    There was a front page article in my newspaper how gun stores are flooded and people are grabbing up "assault rifles and handguns" in fear of a new ban. Glad I got mine last year.

    Is it just me, or is it frustrating to try and find .40 ammo at Bud's?



    I'm one of the folk who started buying after the election - and will continue to do so as much as I can afford.

    Build your own ammo. HOPEFULLY prices on the reloading market won't jump as well, but everything is cascading around our new CICs (and other government branches) historical anti-gun stance.

    *sniffle* What a PITA...

    Thanks for the input. Like I said, I wouldn't know how the prices are in comparison to others, just thought I'd share. That sounds like an interesting thread as well.

    I'm going to have to go very soon to check my Walmart. Since I'm out of a job at the moment, I haven't had the money to "stockpile" ammo. I wonder if they even have any...

    The Washington Arms Collectors show in Monroe was a madhouse today. It looked like the big October (hunter's prep) WAC show in Puyallup. Most of what I saw were pistols and ammunition going out the door. My favorite show dealer had a few EBRs left, but there were lots of folks looking at them. I went with my wife, and we bought and split. I would normally have spent an hour or two looking at old guns and chatting with the dealers, but there was no good way to do that today. (The WAC shows are full of friendly folks who seem to love nothing better than chatting about guns and shooting.)

    One very popular item was an OD t-shirt with a block of Arabic writing and the world "Infidel" underneath it.

    Well, I just returned from my local Walmart, and I was very pleasantly surprised! Although they had a little less ammo in stock than normal, they still had quite a bit in stock. This Walmart stocks a TON of ammo compared to others I've been to. Ironically, they had very little 45acp in comparison to the other calibers. That wasn't the most pleasant part...their prices went DOWN on Blazer Brass!

    2 weeks ago:

    9mm was $8.97/50...today $8.57/50
    45ACP was $14.97/50...today $13.97/50

    So, I came home with 200 rounds of 45ACP. If I had the money I would have purchased A LOT more, but without a job it's hard to be able to afford anything. So, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up to check your Walmart. The guy behind the counter (he's always there when I go) said they just dropped the prices about two days ago. BB was the only ammo with lower prices than normal.

    I reload for all my pistol calibers and keep a pretty good stash of long gun calibers around. I need to stock a little more tho just cause..I get under a couple thousand in anything and I feel like I'm empty..lol.Never know when a band of paper targets will jump put at em and I'll have to defend myself. .

    They're EVERYWHERE!! Layin' around like they own the place. I'll get em though

    I went into a local gun shop today to buy some .223 for my new rifle. I was pleasantly suprised that the prices on ammo had not significantly gone up and they had a decent supply. While there I looked at some of their bushmasters in stock. I was suprised to see any on the shelf, at least until I saw the prices! A collapsable stock Bushmaster carbine that was priced for $900 last week, before the election, was now marked $2700!!!!! Holy Price Gouging Batman! Glad I got mine before the prices went up. On the good side though, the prices on bolt action rifles have not changed.
    Now I just got to get me some ammo to shoot!

    Has anyone else seen this kind of price hike?

    I would have refused to purchase anything from them and left. That's just insanity.

    Here in Kc it so bad at the local gun shops, we must take a number. I have a really good friend that is a private dealer and he said he is getting at least 30 to 40 voicemails aday and 60 to 70 emails from people looking to buy. Un-real. I ordered a new S&W M&P .40 3 days ago and they still haven't processed the order wow.

    Bow the shops must be happy with the demand. Prices like what I'm hearing is nothing short of price gouging. I'd love to hear some of these guys when the gas prices were way up.

    I would've made sure the operator/owner of that shop knew that my business with him had just ended. If it's a local shop, he'd have to show me the difference in his costs before I would accept such insanity.

    Talk about an economic stimulus package!!! YIKES.

    Prices have remained pretty stable around here. I did get to see something pretty crazy though down in Salt Lake City last weekend. There's a gun store called 'Get Some Guns' that usually has AR's, AK's, FAL's and pretty much anything you want. They are usually stacked 3-4 deep on the wall and across the bottom in a rack. I went in on Saturday to get some 357Sig ammo, and there were like 4 guns left on the main wall. Two guys bought the last AK's they had for close to double their regular price. Crazy stuff. The local shop here in my home town though is maintaining pretty good prices. Bushy AR 20" for about $1000.

    Glad I don't need anything like a tricked out ninjafied shotgun like Mike has . just kidding! hehehe
