Default Buying new guns, but what about ammo?

So the gun shops are still selling guns like crazy, and there are tons of people on this forum saying they're buying a new gun/s. What about the ammo? I myself got on a waiting list for an AR, if it comes in, I couldn't afford to shoot it at $1+ a round. The shop currently offers the opportunity to buy 100 rounds with the purchase of the gun, but what about in a few months? Is everybody just buying the guns in hopes that ammo will eventually show up at a reasonable price? I understand that this problem is most likely caused by everybody panic buying, but I am still surprised that the gun sales haven't slowed down, and prices haven't dropped because of lack of ammo.......

Default ammo anxiety..??

Easy there Spitfire. Read this thread from yesterday;

...and just keep your eyes peeled for the eventual ease up.
Oh, and get the 100 rounds from the dealer when the AR is in. Congrads on the new purchase too.

No anxiety, just curiosity. LOL, that AR is far from purchased.....it's only been placed on order, and a down payment made. We'll see if it shows up. Good thing I have patience for such things.
