It is amazing. There’s a big ammo shortage out there right now. All the ammo is gone! Well, not “all”, but I might as well say all – just to make a point.
These months have SHATTERED records for buying guns AND ammunition.
Do you remember the ammo shortage years ago when all of the .22LR disappeared from the shelves? And do you recall how long it took to get back to normal with just that one caliber?
Now think about our present day ammo shortage! Just about every caliber seems affected. They’re mostly all gone. Just for fun I searched several online ammo distributors and nearly every handgun caliber (for example) was gone. I searched on the most popular, 9mm, and it’s gone.
Like many of you, I enjoy target shooting from time to time. But nowadays, even though I’m well stocked with ammo, I hesitate to use it! Why? Because I can’t replace it! At least that’s what it seems.
Even if you have a thousand rounds of this and a thousands rounds of that (for example), it’s pretty easy to blow through a hundred rounds during a session, right? Next thing you know – your stack is getting lower – while replacements are hard to come by…
Given the status of our probable bumpy future (putting it mildly), many of you are likely hesitating yourself with regards to using your ammunition to practice your skill, right? It really is quite remarkable what is happening…
Why the ammo shortage? Who is buying it?
Who can blame them? We’re living through a time of madness, craziness, upheaval, revolution. Our destiny is uncertain at best. So people prepare for the worst. One’s security – perhaps defense of country – is of utmost importance, so people shore up their preps in this regard. However the system can’t keep up. The ammo is gone. Guns too.
I really don’t know how long it might take for ammo manufacturers to catch up, and resupply to the extent of being somewhat “back to normal”. Concerned American Patriots will keep on scoffing up ammo as it becomes available. To what end?
I suppose it will keep happening until such time that those purchasing ammo feel “the threat” is diminished or over. Maybe that’s “if” Trump is victorious come November. Because the alternative outcome will surely continue to drain whatever is left of the supply chain for a very long time to come as the new Left Marxists will come for them. Heck, either way I don’t see this settling down for the foreseeable future.
Maybe these manufacturers can overcome this ammo shortage situation. But I’m not so sure about that…
Where can you find ammo today?
Okay, lets throw it out there to the MSB community. How bad are the ammo shortages near you? Are you finding much of anything out there? What about online (seems out-of-stock there too)?
This is crazy!
