No, some are afraid of cival disorder with no way to protect their loved ones.
Your neighbor is only a neighbor until he runs out of food.
I'm not going to entertain that kind of lunacy. Too many people panic at the drop of a hat.
Everybody has been singing loud about all the new gun owners going out and buying guns. Did you think they wouldn't buy ammo? Maybe that is causing a temporary shortage.
Anyway, I think things will calm down in a month or so.

Ammoman seems to have quite a bit in stock.

All I see is hollowpoints $350 for 500 rounds.

I hope so, because I'm about ready to buy a case off of gunbroker.

I don't think ammo, for recreational use, will ever get "that bad" in the US though in our lifetime... unless its due to heavy taxation on it. (In which case "Reloaded Ammo=Moonshine" No tax.)
Then the primers could be taxed heavily. The same thing happened to those who rolled their own cigarettes. The government started taxing the loose tobacco more.
Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable."

I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.

If it all gets too restrictive or heavily taxed, the black market dealers will be ready and willing to make sales.
