I see lots of 9mm ammo in the Austin area on Armslist. Problem is, they want 20-30 bucks a box. That's true most places. I'm selling 4 boxes of 9mm for $15 a box in Michigan, but not many people selling in that price range. You're probably NOT going to find ammo at the nearest Hardware store these days.

thanks....but this is just starting to get damn old.....buying some ammo for the range shouldn't be a freakin scavenger hunt....i have honestly almost given up & am having thoughts of engaging another hobby for a year or so...in hopes this BS might be over by then...

i have a friend who had just gotten seriously into shooting and firearms...he doesn't even talk about it much anymore....he's sick of it also.

again, archery or perhaps a crossbow might be my next endeavor....

Or reloading. That way you're effectively fueling both hobbies. (If you can find the components).

Yeah, can't say I really blame you. I'm fully setup to reload in my current caliber of choice (9mm) and am having a tough time finding bullets, primers, and powder. Cases are pretty easy online, but the others are a bit harder. I think they're easier to find than actual ammunition, though.

However, just think of this... If you were to get started reloading, and could find components... You could keep shooting.... OR you could reload at your own pace and just not shoot, thereby giving you a huge stock to shoot when you come back to it. Just sayin. But again, that's if you can find the stuff...

It, and all of the others, will; be back in quantity at normal prices in a few months./

This has happened several times before, and it will happen again.

Don't allow your choice of a gun to be influenced by a temporary condition.

you are right, of course. i'm just a bit disgusted with it at the present time. these popular calibers aren't necessarily easy to find (at a good price) when time are good. now, if i'm lucky enough to find it, i normally refuse to be completely ripped off...

i have only been in the hobby seriously for the last 6-7 years, and there have been many ammo droughts during that period.

but do you ever recall one as bad as this one?
