there's still people coming in and buying the whole shipment of .308 and 5.56 here, before the stores even get to shelve it..

there never was tons of ammo here to start

So I sit with like 500 rds of 5.56, >1000 of .22...

It is a damn shame when our country's protectors have to supply their own ammo to hone their skills. When so many lives depend on their actions and abilities it only makes good sense to supply ALL their shooting needs and allow them plenty of range time. A proficient Law Enforcement Officer is security for our country. Thank you all for your service and may God always have your six.

I assumed 9mm, .40 and .223 would be hard to find, but within a few minutes I found boxes of 9mm online? Now I don't know if they are a good deal or not.

I would gladly pay more tax if the tax was allocated ONLY for Law Enforcement ammo and training.

Many local law enforcement agencies have had to drastically cut back on firearms training simply due to the cost and supply.
Those of you who shoot often should have seen this coming back in early Dec. last year. That was the time to stock up. Im by no way a newbe. Was LEO until accident made me disabled. I still shoot but not near as much as before. Its going to be a while before things get back to normal provided some idiot doesnt pull another stunt with a semi auto rifle. If so it will be a long time before ammo is readily available. This whole ordeal sucks !!!

Probably because all ammo is being bought up by Home Land Security.
2.1 Billion rounds and another order just placed.

The **** at The DHS are setting orders directly with ammunition mfgr's, and they are Tier 1 for order filling.

They are maxing out CCI and ATK (federal brands)

imports are bought up at the source.


So yeah, its bad timing for one, but its mostly caused by the fuck knuckles who work for the DHS. I damn near almost want to raid one of their facilities.

Bass Pro near me had a decent selection, better than I've found at other stores around. I picked up a few boxes of various shells for target shooting and any potential hunting trips. They were sold out of .22lr and many others. I've also never seen their gun cases so empty, they didn't have much left in stock.

I know its Alex Jones, BUT this article has enough links to hard facts its bearable to read this article.
http://www.infowars.com/dhs-purchase...of-ammunition/

This has been making the rounds on my FB newsfeed for awhile now. Not sure on the accuracy or legitimacy, however. Don't particularly feel like doing that bit of research right now. Already procrastinated on my hw enough for one day haha.

REPORT FROM GUNS & AMMO:

S&W: Running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.

RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.

FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1.

Remington: Maxed out!

Armalite: Maxed out.

DPMS: Can’t get enough parts to produce any more product.

COLT: Production runs increasing weekly...bottle necked by lack of bolt carrier’s.

LWRC: Making only black guns, running at full capacity...can’t get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.

Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.

AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/over 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.

MAGPUL: Behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.

RELOADERS: ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra’s for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted...

Related commentary from Bob Owens:
They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers are running full-bore, but can’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It isn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that are sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and Enfield .303s are gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seemed to have 10-20—are gone. So is their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it. Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years is gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

This!

People also buying certain mags from their "suppliers" and reselling for a hugely over exaggerated price.

Those who don't shoot need to sell their ammo to those who do. And if you don't need to buy mags, then don't! I've heard people state, Yea I bought some mags cuz I thought I might own an AR someday...buy the damn AR first then buy mags...
