Why can we STILL not get any ammo????

This is really ridiculous...its been several months now since I've seen anything on the shelves that is used in semi auto handguns or rifles. I don't think the DHS is buying 22LR, so what gives??? I can understand .223/5.56, 7.62, even 9mm i can understand, but all I've seen on the shelves lately is pure hunting rounds - 7mm, .270, etc. Is this not worrisome?

Because every Walmart has a line of people waiting, at 6:30AM, at the ammo counter, to buy ammo, as it's being stocked. By 8:30 AM, it's all gone because nobody wants to miss a chance to buy ammo.

Our culture changed overnight. Everybody's mindset is now to buy ammo when they see it, instead of to buy it when they need it.

in central FL, I have a walmart and Gander close by, and ....nothing. I cruise by during lunch, hoping for something, but nothing. I actually have 2 guns purchased in the last 6 months and not yet tested because I cannot get ammo, and i dont want to shoot what i have on hand.

I feel your pain brother.

Try Walmart around 10-11 pm and between 6-7am.

Ask the people who work in the sporting goods when they restock the case.

Do you have an academy sports? They have ammo but limit you to one box per caliber with a 3 box max per day.

Walmart limits you to 3 boxs total or any caliber.

Hope this helps you.

Mike Irwin has started a thread in this forum titled The "Where is everything?" thread -- guns, ammo, primers, powder, etc... That's the one, central thread where discussions of the price and availability of these things should now be taking place. Feel free to continue the conversation there.
