Our ammunition cost have sored in cost to unbelievable heights in stores all across the USA. I seen costs go up from $18.00 to $36.00 on ammo that you have multi-purpose usages for, from Training, CC, Target Practice, Hunting, and just for your storage, and for hard times.
The stores have left their supplies and merchandises that we buy and use daily, go to near ZERO SUPPLIED; worse than toilet paper shortages. The stores make a lot of money, by doing this nightmare and the managers are not being honest to the customers. It took almost 2 months to find and purchase the well used and bought .380 and 9 mm ammunition common used for CC and target practice. The demands for other ammos are high in cost too. Defensive ammunitions: 9 mm, .380 ACP, .40 SW, .45 ACP, .38 Special/.357 Magnum, 10 mm, and etc. COSTS !
Rationing has been in force on 9 mm, 223/556, and others for a long time. I know a little on marketing and this is also on pistols, rifles. and shotguns. Shortages on all merchandise are being found and seen by everyone of us and the prices are climbing continually and management hopes that no one will see it and still seek to buy secondary merchandise that is not what the client wishes for.
Know this that ordering things from places like Sportman’s Guide or Bud’s Gun Shop are being effected too, but not like the retail markets. Still, you face the statement, NOT AVAILABLE.
We must keep moving forward and not give up. Please be careful on people that could be selling unsafe merchandise and things can become worse. Thank you !
