Texas seems to have a problem with supplying us gun owners with ammunition. I remember an article from some democratic that said if they can’t get rid of guns then they will get rid of the ammunition. Are other states having the same problem?
Slightly off topic but welcome to the community and help from a fellow Texan… Here in Johnson City.
Where are you at?
Get ready to break open the piggy bank
And research the seller before placing your order…
It is every state sir, not a regional problem. I go to Lucky Gunner, SG Ammo, Sportsman’s Outdoor Warehouse (really high), and Target Sports USA.
None of Democrats can stop ammo production… actually there is no way anyone can do this…
And yes, all States have the same ammo issue… more price than amount problem
It’s pretty much everywhere, bare shelves here too in the middle of the country.
Thankfully I live in driving distance of an ammunition manufacturer. Limited in 9x19 but they have other calibers in stock.
Federal Ammunition has an inventory with a wait time in shipping.
This could be a brass shortage to make ammo - with all the layoffs due to the “kung-flu”, brass production could be way down - mfrs. could well have to deal with changing priorities due to caliber demand - today it’s .223, tomorrow it’s .45, etc. .
Find the folks with pallets of TP stored in their garages. The folks who make it difficult to wipe your backside are the same kind of folks who make it hard to buy ammo.
Do not believe that ammo production can not be shut down. While there is some protection with the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act” i don’t think we should feel safe from attack on any firearm related products. We lost Remington. If the new administration guts the PLCAA and opens the door to frivolous lawsuits they can drive producers out of the market. MHO.
Three things don’t exactly fit the theory of hoarders being the problem. 1. Even the expensive boutique ammo is gone. 2. Any and all ammo has jumped in price. 3. Reloading stuff is also gone from reloading supplies to reloading tools/accessories. Curious?
The Ranges I’m using for classes make the ammo sell very fair. All attendees are always supplied with ammo needed for the class and the price is $18.99 per 50rd box. I like this !
Ammo is always available for class.
It seems to be a political thing… With so much controversy and uprising nationwide, perhaps law officials and policy makers see limiting the accessibility of ammunition and firearms as a way to control order in within the people in our country. Especially through these chaotic times?
One thing I have learned through being a member of the USCCA is how much I don’t want to have to ever use a gun unless I need to stop the threat. The problem is… there are many divisions of threats.
The question is… how can we as an organization psychologically represent our love for our association, its comradery and its use of firearms as a sport, a means of healthy exercise and the confidence it gives each individual to feel strong, confident and responsible for our own lives and the lives of others?
It is estimated that more than 17 million new guns were sold this year in the US, many inspired by Covid lockdowns and rioting. I’d bet that most of those new gun purchases were accompanied by new ammo.
Plus, if hoarding toilet paper due to a virus seems rational to millions of Americans, the idea of defunding the police while angry mobs roam the streets makes a few (dozen/hundred/thousand) extra rounds of ammo sitting in the closet seem like an absolute necessity.
I think you have captured the situation very well sir. That is my theory as well.
That problem occurs over in your brother state, Louisiana.
