around here, most rifle calibers don't even have a dent in the supply, shotguns shells are plentiful, .45 ACP & 38 special are still fairly plentiful, & 9mm & .223 are GONE. 22LR is getting scarce most places. one of the big shops only had a couple different rifle powders & were out of every one i asked them about.

it kinda made me chuckle, whenever someone has a question about a"SHTF" gun, people tell them get one in a common caliber so ammo will be plentiful when you need it. well guess what....SHTF & there's no ammo for those guns. on the flip side, there's plenty of .303 british in town for my 106 year old Enfield

I hear that...I "almost" gave up my 1965 Rem 7400 semi auto in .280....now there's a box of cartridges you can see collecting dust most generally on the shelf at most sporting good stores and.... I think with it using a 10 round clip, it's a lot more deadly than an AR15 with a 10 round clip side by side. But...its a "deer rifle"

LGS that I check out, if they have something, i.e. ammo, weapon or other goodies. I would purchase the item(s) and do not get in the conversation of when the truck is coming in.

Some internet based stores do have ammunition. You can not find 5.56/.223 anywhere unless you are willing to pay $1 or more a round. I bought both 45 ACP and 38 special today. A little higher priced than what I paid 6 months ago. It is good to see that most gun stores are not gouging the prices. Now, I have seen privatre sellers price gouging alot. On a popular gun auction web site, I have seen a 700 dollar Bushmaster rifle going for 1500 or more. In regards to magazines, I just bought 2 30 round magazines for my AR-15 from Cabelas online and they were in stock. They were manuifactured by FNH, but are labeled as to be able to fit most AR rifles.

In Central Indiana its almost impossible to find .22 LR, some 9mm, lots of 12 gauge around, saw lots of .40 S&W and .17 , 22 magnum at Gander Mountain Indianapolis,( not one 50 count box of .22LR though). Did find some 22 LR at my local pawn shop,(2 box limit ). 50 count box of 9mm Blazer was 19.99 there, bought it anyway.

I am at the point of getting some additional 12 ga ammo (Buckshot 00, Slugs and birdshot) and probably another 12 ga for range time.

Albuquerque is the same, very dry on 22LR, 9mm, 223/5.56, 30-06, 10mm, 40, 7.62 x 39, 38 Special, 357 Mag, 45 ACP, 44 Mag, etc.

I found that cabelas online has some 30 rd AR-15 magazines available for 39.99. They are made by FNH, but will fit any AR. I have a Sig, and they work great. They also have some ammo but no .223.

The 9mm ammo shortage is getting very frustrating. I wish people would calm down so I can get some. I only have 300 rounds on hand, normally I would think that was plenty and I would go shoot, but until I can replace what I shoot I don't want to use it up.

I am also frustrated that 12 gauge buckshot and slugs are not all over the place like they were a couple of months ago.

I get paid Friday and I plan to go on an ammo hunt to see if I can find a couple of boxes of 9mm. At least then I can go to the range and not be in a worse situation than I am today.
