The Democrats and liberals fighting hard for a ban on pretty much every rifle/shotgun that have a pistol grip or takes a magazine. This is causing a MAJOR buying craze. Certain calibers of ammo in almost nonexistent, and guns that are even remotely likely to fall under a ban are hard to find, and selling for 2-4 times their value.
All you can do is either pay the price, or wait until the buying craze dies down, and hope that there isn't a ban by then.

It's a terrible time to be buying guns and ammo. Prices are through the roof due to the huge demand and low supply.

I'm a FFL and all of the distributors I use are out of guns and ammo and backordered for at least 4 months on everything. Personally, I've stopped shooting everything except 22s, and only those in moderation. I'm going to wait this thing out. It's killing me, but I think I'm going to have to find a new temporary hobby.
