I'm going public to admit I was wrong. I had read how bad the ammo shortage was but never really paid attention to the hype.

I wasn't shooting my pistol, I have what I want on hand of 5.55, I have alot of .308 on had(every year I'd buy a box and shoot maybe 6 rounds) so I probably have 250-300 rounds laying around.

But like I posted earlier I bought my wife a Sig Sauer Mosquito and myself a new Glock 23.

We drove all over looking for .22 and .40 ammo. I've searched every website I used to use and some new ones and everyone is complete out of ammo and most not even taking backorders anymore, since they have so many and don't know when they'll be able to fill them. I have a few hundred rounds of .40, but hate to use up my JHP for breaking in a new pistol, besides not knowing when I'll be able to get more.

This is truely crazy I never thought I'd see the day in America where you couldn't run to any store and pick up a box of .22LR.

I admit I was wrong, not only is it as bad as I read, it's worse than that I think.

It's ugly for sure.
.22 is what's hardest to find.

I can't disagree with you guys. It's bad out there.

I honestly thought maybe it was just a local shortage, reading all the posts here. But online stores are out, every where we called is out. They told us what day they get shipments and what time the line starts forming, it's gotten than crazy for the common calibers.

I told my wife 2 years ago, I should start buying the 1000rd bulk boxes. But she hated spening so much at once when we could go to Walmart and pick up what I wanted to use that day.

Craziness, pure craziness.

Have to keep in mind that the ammo in the US doesn't only supply the ppl in the US.. Ammo from the US goes to other countries etc. so since we're in a panic why wouldn't they be as well? Id say the government is buying double what they normally do as well however I sure cant substantiate that guess in any way. Given the psychotic behavior of our in-charge radical left's, this may go on longer than I would have ever guessed - maybe years \:\(

The media, and this admin. have almost succeeded in banning guns, and ammo sales . They have already caused ammo to be just about impossible to acquire..
