Yesterday I was at the local sporting goods store and the only handgun ammo they had was 10mm at just $20 for a 50 round box. Naturally that is the one caliber handgun I don't own.
What's the problem? Just buy a 10mm handgun to fill out your collection! šŸ˜„

Funny thing today at Walmart in Montgomery AL. Had to buy CO2 cartridges, and went to the Sports section. No one around and I waited for a long time someone to show up. I noticed all the BB pallets, CO2 cartridges etc. were behind locked glass doors.
ALL the ammunition (mostly shotgun shells) was on a open shelf, totally unattended? Any kid could have slipped some in his pockets.

My SO went to Coastal, a local farm store, cus he heard that there was a supply of Taurus Judge revolvers there. As I mentioned, I cannot at my age slide back the top thingie, so a revolver sounds good. This one, as well as a Smith and Wesson, can use some small shot gun type shells. (note: I don't know the lingo nor anything else about guns. I used to know how to shoot).

The clerk at the store said good luck on finding any personal defense weapon now a days. The last time they had one of the Taurus ones was in March - no deliveries since.

This thread talked about shortages in ammo, but clearly there are shortages in weapons themselves.

My buddy and I each had a shotgun barrel cut down. It took the shop almost 2 weeks to get it done they were so busy. I truly believe that until the election is over there will continue to be a record number of firearms sold and ammo will continue to be in short supply.

If Biden wins I think gun sales will continue to be unreal as many people seem to fear there will be strong anti-gun legislation in the near future. Personally I already own too many guns.

After the failed first attempted online order, I placed a second order with a different seller. I have now taken delivery of some Swedish ammo from Norma. Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. Iā€™m all set for now.

Norma makes good ammo; I think you did well. Glad you found some. It is crazy right now with the ammo supply; hardly any to be found In the more popular calibers.

Well I feel like I hit the Daily Double. Not only was I able to buy four 50 round boxes of 9mm at a local gun store, I only had to pay $22.46 per box. That might seem high priced but by todayā€™s standards thatā€™s cheap.

The ammo shortage is probably effecting parts of the country differently. Every retail establishment I go to down here in Florida, that sells ammo, I always take a minute and check for .38, 9mm, and 16 gauge shotgun. None available for the past 2 months in central Florida that I have stumbled across. Talked to a buddy from costal Alabama yesterday and he just purchased a new 9mm CC handgun plus 200 rounds.....no problem.

Just speculation! With story.

Went into Big5 the other day after being told they may have ammo. Waited at the counter for a long time, then the manager came up so I asked him about my needs(no I won't shoot anyone). He told me when the next shipment would be. He also told me to be at the front of the line, so I might want to bring a tent. Further he volunteered that the same people were at the front of the line every time they had a delivery.

Now the speculation; Are the same people from BLM?
