yea along with reloading supplies too.
All our Wally worlds are basically out. Even Academy has very little ammo. Anyone else having a "shortage"?
yea along with reloading supplies too.
My local Wally World had 2 boxes of .40 on the shelf and that was it. Can't even find .45 or 9mm cases, new or once fired, and large and small primers are getting back ordered also.
Both of my Walmarts are out of every handgun caliber except for 40S&W. My local gun stores have no ammo either.
There hasn't been an instance yet where I've went to the Wal Mart that I usually buy 9mm ammo and they were out.
The Walmart I went to last week was pretty low too. There seemed to be plenty of .38 Special, which what what I needed. I asked the associate who got the ammo for me what the deal was and he said that Walmart is having a hard time getting ammo from the distributors at the moment.
Yep, Obama's been good for business!!
Most of the Wally's around me have stopped selling ammo all together, did so some time ago.
The Walmart ammo shelves have remained well stocked in my neck o the woods. Some of my reloading suppliers have been spotty but my stock has been adequate to carry me over till it was available.
I would not want to be buying on the way to the range though.
Just bought a SW 38. Can't find a store anywhere that has any target rounds. Is there a reason that Winchester rounds even on the internet state that they are out with no backorder? I am just trying to understand what the reason is and I am tried of hearing it's Obhma. It seems like these manufactors would do everything possible to keep up with demand and that they would flood the market with supply. Any suggestings on where I can find some rounds that don't make me take out a second mortage to buy them? Thanks everyone.
...well, all I can say is I went on my weekly hunt for ammo and struck out in .40, 44 mag, 45 acp. 22's are plentiful.
I did find some Blazer .40, but I'll pass on that. If you've never shot it, you see why when you try it. (Dirty, dirty, dirty). A lot of people will pass it up too.
Thinking I'm going to add another 22 to the house so that at least I can fire off something.
"In Obama Amerika, all your bulletz belong to us"
I really haven't had much of a problem. I just got 600 rounds of .223 for around .34 a round from Wal-Mart 55g FMJ's.
Every store will tell you that they are experiencing a run on ammunition now. It is indeed "Obama Fear". It takes time for a manufacturer to increase production and keep quality control. And this is not the best financial invironment in which to borrow and invest in production that may decline later.
This is a good time to consider owning a .22 revolver or pistol. Ammo is plentifuil and still cheap and you can get in a lot of shooting if you desire. Practicing with .22 rounds is never a negative.
It could also be a good time for you to consider handloading. It is a most relaxing and fulfilling hobby. And for target rounds there is nothing better than making your own. I am sure that I have loaded over 20,000 .38 Special wadcutters in my time, not to mention even more semi-wadcutters, and thousands of rounds of other calibers. I'll bet others have dwarfed that number.
if it is the obama administration or people in washington, and how are they controlling the market?
Both of the WalMarts around me are cleaned out. Only handgun ammo to be found there was 380 ACP and 32's. I guess the DFW area is loading up.
It's been tough to get ammo since around election time. I'll admin I have been stocking up, simply because it's been tough just to find some good .40, so I pick some up when I can. Bass Pro has had pretty good stock, though. My problem is that they tend to have this huge box (250 I think) that is a bit out of my price range. I did catch a box of 100 Remington ad Academy on sale just before Christmas, though.
I do so love panics and runs on supplies. It reminds me of places around here when a few snowflakes grace the air, or a hurricane shows up in the Gulf. Good luck finding bread and milk then.
...good grief! So, out looking again today and I find a decent supply of 45 auto BLAZER cartridges. Reluctantly, I bought one box. Standing there looking at about a dozen boxes of it, I guardedly pulled back from buying more than one box. Now, back on the forums, reading more and more about shortages, I think that I'll go back and buy just ONE more box of 45's. That's all they have except 9's. and 22's. EVERYTHING else is gone. Still.
Yea I have been wanting to get a 22 pistol for years. I put it off and put it off and now even the price of those have increased to the point it's hard to justify. Unbelivable how much things have changed in the last 6 months.
Prices right now are insane. Last two gun shows I went to were crazy.
The Obama Fear Factor.
I went out today to buy more ammo.Everywhere I went is out. So I went on-line, same there, out of stock. I know lots of folks bought and stored ammo, BUT out of stock everywhere? I wonder how long it will take the manufacturers to catch up. Or are they waiting to produced based on rumor of future requirements??
If we can't get ammo for practice, it's going to get interesting.
http://www.natchezss.com. In that time I've seen local prices go up about 5-10%. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about how much my next purchase is to cost me, and I am seriously considering making this batch of ammo last much longer than usual.
New Manufacture SOUTH AFRICA 45ACP (220gr) FMJ, Brass Case, NON-CORROSIVE, Boxer Primed Fully Reloadable. VERY ACCURATE
SA45 45ACP South African 220gr FMJ $15.95/50 or $289/1000
I have shot a 100 rds with no problems, and there is always Blazer.
I usually pick up a box of 100 9mm from Walmart every time I'm there, but as of yesterday, my local store is out. I had heard about 40 and 45 being out of stock, but 9mm? I'm concerned. I was going to take some tax return money and treat myself to a Kimber....something (haven't decided which one yet) and around 500 rounds of 45, but now I'm wondering if I'll even be able to find any ammo to take it to the range for the first time. I'm depressed.
