    Fairbanks, AK. Walmart has nothing for ammo selection. Perhaps five boxes of hollowpoints in 9mm but no target/plinking FMJ cheap 9mm. The shelves are bare.

    I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT!

    I called my local shop earlier to see if they had any P3ATs in stock and they just happened to get them in earlier today. So, I went in and filled out the form. They are backed up, and I have to work tonight, so I'll be picking it up tomorrow. I stopped at the same Walmart on the way home from the GS and the 380 was gone. I knew that was going to happen. They had one box of UMC 40S&W and about 15 boxes of UMC 9mm. I'll post pictures of the P3AT, hopefully tomorrow.

    Ammo shortage?

    I live in NC and have found recently that I cannot find any ammo for my .45 at any of the local stores. We have Wal Mart, Gander Mountain and several sporting goods stores all of which are out of all brands. I have resorted to searching on-line and am ammazed at the number of large on-line ammo sites that offer many pages of different brands of ammo all out of stock.

    My questions are: #1 what has happened? #2 where do I go to find ammo?

    A little background: I am new to hand guns and in the last 2 months have bought 2 guns: Baretta Cougar and H&K KH45. I hit the range about twice a week and fire off about 200 rounds at a time. Just finished a CC course. Point is am addicted and am having a great time but this ammo thing is really getting me worried.

    1) S*#t, I mean, Obama happened. His anti-gun stance and comments about gun bans and ammo taxes has started a rush of panic buying.

    2) Anywhere you can. Local shops, on-line, box stores, etc. It's a free-for-all.

    I order large amounts of ammunition through a gun store, because I shoot a lot, and there is never enough available in the store. You might also try ammunition websites.

    Google "500% ammo tax". I don't know how likely it is to become law, but it's scary to think about.

    I used to be like you, I usually bought my ammo a few days before shooting, I hardly ever had more than a few boxs stored away. And rarely was walmart out of what I needed. Now I haven't seen the 100rd value pack of 9mm's in 2 months, just found two box's of the .38 specials this week after looking for the past month. Blazer's aren't too difficult to come by, I suspect that company's revenue has gone up quite a bit though.

    A local gun shop here in Tn has the new calendar for 2009 with all the Presidents on it, Obama being the large picture in the center and below his picture they have put a sign on it that says "Employee of the Month" Pretty much sums it up right there!

    Who's he B.S.ing

    I was in Cabela's today looking at Pistols and I over heard a sales man trying to sell a guy a .40 cal Pistol. The guy mentioned a 9mm The sales man told him 9mm ammo was hard to come by now days. I didn't look there but my local grocery store carries 9mm so I cant think its that hard to get. I thought it was the common ammo to find? I am about to buy a 9mm Glock. Is there a shortage of 9mm ammo I don't know about or is this a B.S.ing sales man trying to sell some one a .40 cal.

    Not really a shortage, just that people are buying as much as they can afford. The distributors can't keep up with demand.

    The only ammo my local Wal Mart had on the shelf was .40 caliber, everything else was sold out. Said they sell out the same day they get it in.

    bruce333 : thanks for that perspective!!!!!!!!!!
    I know I got the word on hoarding on a blog in OCTOBER '08 - thus I did - for .22 and 9mm
    since then when i go to wallyworld i stop at the gun case and - yup no ammo
    the guy said it dissaperas as soon as it is on the shelf

    jc27310:
    What pending legislation you talking about?
    there are none on the books - certainly nothing to do with the ammunition.

    Hi Hideit,
    the pending legislation I am concerned with is HR45...
    "Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 (Introduced in House)"
    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.45:

    there are rumors of other legislation, but nothing I can point to or reference. Like everyone, I hear about other schemes that are more rumor than fact.

    When I say fight the monsters that are there, I mean legislation that has actually been introduced, rather than rumor....

    I hope everyone writes their representatives!
    peace...
    -John

    ... buying another 1000 JHPs tomorrow. I'd buy 2000 if the budget allowed...

    ... as Jeff wanders out to the garage to load up ANOTHER 200 rounds...

    LOL

    I'd like to have components around to produce 10,000 rounds within the next 3 months. I'd hate to have to change my favorite competition load just because I couldn't get the powder I like...

    AND... if all he__ breaks loose...

    I was at Wal Mart this morning and felt like I hit the lottery! The had one box of Blazer 9mm in stock for $8.97! I grabbed that and the guy said they constantly have stuff on order but because people come in buy the entire stock when it comes in, the shelves are pretty much always empty.

    I stopped by my local gunshop to see what they had. I needed to pick up some more of my JHP since I sent several downrange last time to test compatibility with our guns. Out of JHP but getting some in soon. Anyway, checked out the price on BB 9mm and it was about $12 for 50! Uh, no thanks. I'll wait on Wally World. It really surprised me because pricing on other ammo is fairly decent.

    The Phoenix-area WMs are getting made-by-CCI-in-the-USA Blazer Brass 180FMJs in 40 S&W, and it sells very quickly for $12.47 per box. I was almost out of the case of MagTech I bought with my Glock35 in Jan, so I bought 10 boxes of BB while hoping I could find SOMEONE in the country with a Lee carbide-3-die set in stock. That didn't happen, so I've bought more. Including weekly Cactus League practical-pistol matches, I'm shooting maybe 6 boxes a week. Sure wish those dies and powder riser would arrive.

    I was at Big5 today and I noticed their shelves were pretty well stocked with 9mm ammo. Several brands too, WWB, Speer, Remington, Fiocchi, and PMC.
