I try to keep a thousand rounds on hand for the calibers I shoot the most of. If I start getting close to that I either buy, or adjust the amount or caliber of what I shoot. The only reason I keep a thousand rounds, is because I know that the NRA will take any chance to spread panic, and I want to have enough on hand to continue some level of training, till sanity returns.
The Olins of the world are not about to give up their civilian markets, as soon as the panic buying ends, the stocks will come back. (when they get the price where they want it) We had this same panic in 2008. When ever the "regulations" are settled, the supplies will come back and a lot of "stashes" will hit the secondary market. Will prices be higher? Sure will. We have shown what we are willing to pay, and the makers and sellers will take every dime they can get.
The supply and price issue is a SIW.
