What's somewhat ironic is that prior to the panic I often would have trouble finding my preferred .45 ammunition and shelves would be overstocked with 9mm and .38 Special. Now, not a 9mm round to be had and .38 Special rarely lasts a full 24 hours on the shelf. I can still find SD rounds for .45 and there is some decent range ammunition available. Naturally this would be the time I got a 9mm handgun for Christmas.
