I already bought my 12 gauge ammo so I can at least dove hunt this year. Glad I was able to at least find that ammo

Shotgun shells are in abundance. It's everything else that sucks.

.22LR is probably the one that gets scooped up faster than anything else.

Sadly, by some folks who do not own a .22 but are simply buying to flip.

It's out there. We've been able to find what we need. All at pre-panic prices, and I truly believe within another month, shelves will slowly to start fill up.

Not the full story. Of course. It's funny when you read these stories it's always, 'anonymous sources say'. Then when you click for more info the websites don't work. I've read as much as half a billion rounds of hollow points have been ordered by the Fed, but all I can find proof of is just over 220,000 rounds...BIG difference.

Did you just crawl out from under a rock? Seriously, I have a ton of 12 gauge ammo. If you are in the North Dallas area, I will sell you a few boxes, and I won't even charge more than retail. But 12 gauge seems to be easier to find than alot of other ammo. With a little looking, you ahould be able to find it.

I could not believe the idiocy of Joe's instructional video. The ONLY time I ever wish I could be a fly on the wall of the current Whitehouse is right after Joe opens his mouth in public.

And reports often say he is actually respected by both sides of the aisle. There is something we're not being told.

'Didn't ever feel the need or the desire for an AR-15 before, but if Joe says all we need is a double-barreled 12 gauge...

I was in my local WM last week and the fella at the gun counter was telling me that there are quite a few folks flippin the ammo.

And that is why we have an ammo shortage. People are not buying a box or two, they are buying a case or two. It is kind of silly. 9mm and 223 guns will not all be banned.

But, I won't be shooting any of my horde any time soon, not until I can easily buy more ammo... after everyone else gets stocked up I guess.

Try looking at Sportsman's Guide online. They are out of many calibers, but they will backorder. Their prices seem to be good.

Ammo started to come back and some flippers or stockers will be burned like the last time.Watch for "ammo for sale cheap" ads soon. 22LR or 223 is going nowhere and is here to stay. Yesterday I bought 5 cases (all I need) of Remington 223 from the regular price ($8.99/box). There was 22LR available too.
