There's no freakin' ammo shortage people! People are panicking and buying up everything in sight. Manufacturers are making the same as they always have.

How would you like it if some tanker truck came along and sucked all the gas out of the station, when all you want to do is go for a drive with the family?
This is absolutely true. How many of you would normally run in and buy 5 boxes of ammo per trip? Would you just buy 1 or 2 for your next range trip, then 1 or 2 more the next time? I bet the majority of folks would...but now you have everyone scurrying around buying up 2x, 3x, even 5x more than they normally would. And b/c they can't get their normal WWB, they're buying whatever else they can. If you only have 1 out of 5 people buying 5x or more than they normally would, that's going to eat up everything that 5 people used to buy! What happens when 2 or 3 out of 5 people do the same? Shortage... It is completely fabricated by our own actions. And now you have thousands of new firearm owners adding to the pain b/c guns themselves are selling like hotcakes.

When a hurricane's coming, and the supermarket is out of bread... do you think it's b/c the bakery can't make enough to keep up? This is like a nationwide hurricane that's never going to hit. The firearms industry is laughing their a**es off I bet.
