Anyone try to buy 9mm (or, really, any) ammo lately?


Went to Academy on Siegen to buy a couple of boxes and the shelves were fricking empty.

Very hard to find. I stocked up about 2 weeks prior to sandy hook and I'm glad I did. Gunbroker has some auctions up but you'll pay 1-1/2 to 2 times higher than usual.

Or Cabellas... I picked up some FMJ rounds for 12 bucks per 50 rds a couple of weeks ago.

My old man gave me about 500 9MM bullets last time I went home.

My pops is the best.

Why is there such a shortage of ammo? Is it that people are stocking up, or are they making/selling less in general?

I suspect most of this is the result of a "run" on ammo (plus, let's not forget that the fedgov has been buying tens of millions of rounds in the last few years.

I know the ranges have been full. It's hard to get a lane on some days. People are also buying guns at an increased rate. They want to test their new investments.

NRA classes are full, too. Class I attended this weekend had more than they could handle, and now they are booked until summer.

Bought some .223 Remington but paid almost $1 per round. Usually about $.50 per round
