Walmart here in Ohio has 5 boxes of 9mm 100 rd federals for $21.37 and a bunch of .22 federal lighting for $2.17 a box. You just need to be in the right place at the right time. I'm seeing ammo at my local walmarts atleast once a week.

LGS has 8 Colt AR-15s and 8 Bushmaster AR-15 just came in last week. The prices are not inflated. The demand is slowing way down. No rush on them. Ammo is still in short supply.

Same here NiteStalker, my LGS now has an ABUNDANCE of AR-15's.....but the ammo is still slow to follow. Its better but still far from good. Still lots of new gun owners buying everything in sight, and general hoarding all over the board. I do truly think though (at least in my area and seeing some places online) that it is beginning to break.

Here's to hoping! I'm fairly well stocked in my calibers but it sucks that I dont shoot as much now.....because Im nervous about replenishing my stock. At least up here its going forward, slowly, and not backwards

My goal is 1K on hand for my handgun, and eventually get an M1A and keep a minimum 5K on hand. That does not include range ammo. Once I get to my goals, I'll only be buying what I shoot, which isn't nearly as much as it should be.

This is the first shortage I've gone through as an adult. And as I said, it hit my area late, and mildly, but it was still enough to bug the piss out of me. I don't want to get caught with my pants down again.

I may have to swap those numbers around though. I do way more pistol shooting than any other. But if I had the right rifle and ammo to feed it...

Interestingly, I just received a "Cheaper Than Dirt" catalogue in the mail. I don't remember ever buying from them, and I have no intention of ever buying from them in the future, but half of the items featured in the 76 page catalogue, just about all of the ammo and anything AR-related were unavailable.

I just wonder why would you go to the expense of putting out a catalogue advertising merchandise you cannot provide?

Same here treeHugger! Even after I ripped their customer service a new one via email a couple months back when they were charging $69 for a box of freaking 9mm FMJ.

I thought it was also interesting that not a SINGLE box of ammo had a price next to it.

The LGS I normally patronize has everything (except .22LR) at decent prices. Unfortunately, they're down in Kolorado so I won't buy from them.

But local Wally world is slowly getting back to normal.
