Yeah, I don't really think it's cause for panic. I'm not one to fear monger. There's plenty of sources saying DHS buys the same amount of ammo every year. And, other sources that claim they are "buying it ALL so citizens can have none." All I know is the shortage sucks...and the prices suck.

I think it is time you scare mongers get called on your stupid rhetoric.
Cannot say whether any of these would ever qualify as verifiable sources. They do show that Congressmen, and some reputable news journals, have taken note of what they feel are very unusual amounts of purchases:

I'd say that should about cover it.
Only a fool would not fear our current government.

Nothing is 'safe'. Silver will go. So will gold. Eventually. It's like we are running from one base to the next as each is wiped out,desperately seeking a safe refuge. Eventually we realise there is no safe place to hide. The game is up. A bad system is collapsing. Stock up on beers,buy yourself a violin and start fiddling.
Other than that everything is just fine

What if Obama tries that "third term ****". Then what? That's why theres no .22 ammo available, they don't want us "getting ready" for what's to come. They don't want the concerned citizen training with the once cheap and easy to get .22 ammo to practice with. Who knows. That's just my take on it.

I agree with that to some degree.

Just got back from my local wally world. While I was looking through the scarce pickings on the ammo shelves I asked the guy when they expected to get ammo back like normal. He proceded to show me a letter from their distributor that said it would take 2-3 Years!!!! This is outrageous!!

I call BS on the 2-3 years. That's too outrageous, even in an ammo shortage. Ammunition manufacturers can produces tens of thousands of rounds per day. Hornady says they are running 24/7 to keep up. There's no way anyone, especially walmart, is going to wait 2-3 years. Whoever showed you that letter is either lying, or clueless....which wouldn't be far fetched for a Walmart employee.

The employees here locally in the outdoor department are great, they are nice and somewhat knowledgeable. He says that they have moved quite a few ARs through there and allot of 223. Most people say around 6 to 9 months.

I'm willing to bet that the letter meant to say "it MIGHT take 2-3 years for things to settle down and the ammo case to be constantly full of common calibres." I just think that he meant things should settle down, and not be on such a "truck by truck" availability. The only good thing about Rhode island being such a blue state ( and I mean the ONLY thing) is that there are less gun owners, so the ammo doesn't fly off the shelves as fast. The local gun stores are short on .22, but the .223 seems to be stabilizing a bit.
