Was at the gun store today and the owner says it is begining to get hard to keep stuff on the shelves again. I guess, as it looks more and more likely that Hillary is gonna be our illustrious potentate bang , folks are gonna start panic buying again. I'm pretty sure I'm good to go on calibers that I shoot, might pick up a little more .22lr though.

Other than 22 ammo and concealable pistols there are not any real shortages.
22 is getting a lot better but the compact pistol business is hot and they are getting behind.

Sheep are gonna stampede, they do every time.

Hopefully many here have paid attention and prepared for it. I refuse to be part of the mass panic of the unprepared.

Have your house in order. That way you don't contribute to "The Stupid" when it occurs. cheers

I'm not seeing any ammo shortage at all around here. Some specific loads are hard to find but its been that way for years now. As far as caliber goes I can find just about anything main stream any day of the week.

My opinion........it was a sales pitch to get inventory moving. Most people don't prepare this far in advance. History tells us that for sure.

I like that. I'm going to steal that line.
After coming back from an overseas work trip in the spring of 2009, i was never going to get caught up in all this bs any more. I have consistently bought ammo whenever that particular thing was cheap knowing I;m the kind of person who always shoots it eventually. My stock has gone up and down over the years but luckily it's been cheap the last couple so I can pretty much weather anything these days.

I still haven't found a 458 Socom upper on sale recently. There must be a shortage.

I was at multiple Academy stores and Cabela's and there was no shortage of ammo.
