9mm availability
 
just a quick curiosity ques...

i am looking to get a 9mm pistol...is the ammo drought for 9mm as bad as 22 and 223? i haven't really looked for 9mm in quite some time.

i really don't want another gun with extreme ammo droughts. i'm getting tired of 223 for this reason.

Its pretty bad. Theres one store i can usually find it at in my area and its 45 minutes away. They have a 2 box limit at $18/box

thanks. i kinda figured this, but i wanted to inquire anyway.

maybe its a sign that i should just buy a crossbow instead....;)

I am seeing more and more hard to find calibers for sale by indivaduals on local facebook gun groups and I'm hoping that's a sign the shortage will be ending soon and prices will go back down

Wal Mart has not raised their ammo prices, but they do not often have 9 mm, and I have been at a couple stores at 7:00 AM when they bring out the overnight delivery. They seem to have more .40 then any other pistol ammo.

If you're willing to hang out on your computer, run gunbot, you'll find "deals " on 9mm every day. Add Shipping and you'll be under $20 a box, anyway. Cheapest I found was Wolf for $10.95 a box, about $12.40 delivered. If you were in Holland, Mi you could pick up 600 rounds from me at $15 a box, mixed Wolf and Freedom Munitions Blaster. There is ammo out there, but probably at least $5 a box more that we would like to pay. :)

I have a harder time finding 9mm than 223, my supplies started getting low here recently so I was forced to buy more... Was really hoping to ride it out but it's just been too long.

I've bought about 25 boxes of 223 so far, have only snagged 3 boxes of 9mm.

Try GUNBOT or AMMOSEEK. I've been using both and found all I need (9mm, 22lr, 223/5.56) and patience will reward you with a "decent" price point. I get 99+% of my ammo online now - delivered to my door. :)

i figured as much. this is a crazy world lately....i may have to re consider...having guns you can't shoot ain't much fun....:mad:

See if there's any guns and ammo trader groups in your area if you're on facebook. I'm on I think 8 for the kansas city area and there's always somebody trying to sell something.
