Retailers Can’t Restock Ammunition Inventory

Bass Pro will not receive new .22lr ammo shipments for 3-4 months.

The same source informed me that most 9mm ammo is looking even worse. In fact, their popular Remington® UMC 9mm Mega Packs are on backorder until December 2013.

I went to Academy this morning to pick up some fishing hooks so I could take my son fishing. There were about 10 people in front of me waiting for the doors to open. A guy walks up behind me and asks if this is the ammo line and I said I guess but I am just here for hooks. He and his wife go on to tell me how they have the system down and know when each store gets their shipments in. I decide to walk in the line to customer service to see what they had.

You should have seen the looks on all of these peoples faces when there was no ammo on the counter except for some 7.62x39 and about 5 boxes of .40. Priceless..... I just smiled and went over to the fishing tackle.


See y'all around the campfire.

Yeah unfortunately I started building my gun collection at the wrong time. My next purchase was going to be a .45 but looks like I will be out of luck on ammo even if I got one. Looks like I will have to go with plan B and get a shotgun since there is ammo for that.

Lol. Good luck at finding a 1000 rounds in a couple of months unless you are wanting just high dollar stuff, or paying the stupid inflated prices some people are trying to get for thiers.

I check all 3 academys near me almost everyday. Been looking for. 22 but they have 40 s&w about a third of the time. Shouldnt be too difficult to atleast find a few hundred rounds.

223 and 308 are almost always on the shelf here. 22 is about the only thing "hard" to find but it's on even that bad. I think the panic is about over.

Academys around me have been getting 223 and 7.62x39 on every single truck it seems like.

There is no shortage but there is a problem. I'm just seeing this locally not sure what y'all are seeing but it seems there are some locals here who are buying as much ammunition as they can and then turning around and resaling it. Our local facebook trading page is full of jacked up ammo. I'm even hearing that some Walmart employee's are also involved in this. The ammo manufacturers are not cutting back if anything their increasing production but we now have some people wanting to play middle man in between retail and customers. What they are doing is illegal their not a business and their not reporting income. All I'll say to those doing it is if you want to face the ATF/IRS I'll be more than happy to fulfill your wishes, you are on my hit list.

Yes sir. Hwyman I am doing it by the books, can't find inventory to restock the bare shelves.

I have not received 223/9mm/22LR at all since before Christmas from our wholesalers. Many small shops are in the same boat.

Last week I got hit with a $5 small order fee from a wholesaler I normally feed 10k a month to... because I needed some things but they have no ammo in stock (at least none in stock for the small dealers).

I understand some is showing up on some shelves, hope it trickles down to us soon.

And you suffer as much as we do, the big companies that place big orders get the first nod, you and other legitimate independents with your smaller orders get the scraps. It's not going unnoticed I'm doing my part and I hope some feel the wrath.

I was in Minnesota for the past week. The ammo shelves looked just like the ones here.

So did the ones in Iowa and Kansas.
