You can't buy anything here. Can't even get primers to reload so that isn't an option. Its been all gone for about 2 months now.

I was lucky, I was Rangemaster for a small Police Dept & ordered all the ammo they used 9mm and I bought Ranger 40 & 45's at Dept cost on my dime when I placed the order for the 9mm's.

You can find ammo but in small quantities around Chicago.
Everywhere has a 1-4 box limit, .22LR is the hardest to locate.

It takes time and some luck but it does show up.
9MM and .40 were at local Walmarts today.

Scored a box of 9mm and 90 rounds of .223 on stripper clips today. Got there when they opened since I finally didn't have to work. And ya this was the limit I could buy.

After the 94 ban it took about 2 years. Right now, I see it coming back at a few places. I look for it to be normal in 9-12 months at the most. Unless there's another big scare.
