    Every where I go, no matter what day it is or time nobody has ammo on the shelves! Turners, Big 5, Dicks, wiped out! I'm sure this is the case in most places or is it just here in CA? I managed to grab 5 boxes of 30.06 for $22 ea. but no .22 ammo anywhere!

    I think it's just there. Here on the east coast, we have a shortage on AR type rifles, glocks, and SigPro magazines.
    Ammo is very easy to come by.

    Yeah the shortage of rifles on the racks too, used to be about 20-30 different types of rifles about 8 in each rack. Now it's more like 2 rifles per rack and mostly shotguns.

    I'm in Rhode Island, very small state, so considering its all ordered in bulk, we probably just don't sell as quickly.

    It is the same here in Albuquerque, was at Sportsmans Warehouse, the rifle section is getting bare. The standard (average) ammo is almost gone.

    Pistol ammo available: Blazer - 44 Mag, .357 Mag (158 gr); did not get the make .25 Cal, 32 Cal, some .380.

    Rifle 5.56 - AR5.56 by Independence 20 rds 55 gr, limit of 3 boxes. They had a nice stack.

    I picked up 3 boxes and other boxes of 12 ga. slugs, buckshot and some birdshot.

    Folks in my area it is bad!

    Have any of you tried ordering online? I've thought about it but haven't yet.

    I went to three LGS yesterday and there was no ammo at two of them and the third was asking a premium to say the least. $15.99 for a 20 count box of 5.56 tracers or $100 for a 100 rounds of belt fed 5.56 - which was at least Federal. Not paying those prices to go to the range - sorry. I'll happily keep what I have in case I need it.

    I was at an lgs yesterday and he got in 20k of 22lr Centurian 38 grain hp. He will limit sales but if you buy a 22 firearm he will sell you a brick. He is not gouging. I have about 10k of 22lr I bought before the crunch so I did not buy any. He has to pay more to the distributors to get ammo in. He said he got 18 boxes of 9mm in the other day where he would normally get 20 cases.

    My long commute takes me by two gun shops in Virginia, plus, there is one on the other side of town where I live in Maryland. They are often out of at least one caliber on my shopping list with .223REM being the hardest to find. All are limiting to one or two boxes per customer per day. I've been having good luck with .22LR being in stock, but still with a one or two box limit, I was excited when they had some 100 round boxes recently ;)

    Keep watching slickguns.com for in-stock deals.

    You will find something within a week or so.

    Keep an eye on Bulkammo.com...they list bulk .223 daily towards the evening for $919 but it seems to all go in about an hour. I don't shoot that round but, it appears some are willing to pay that much for it. :eek:

    My LGS has ammo, but NO 9mm!! they told me that they are lucky to get (1) case a week. As soon as they put it on the shelf, it's gone within hours!!! They have most other ammo... just no 9mm..

    At my local range, they are limiting every one that enters the range that purchases ammo, to (1) box!!!

    Just stopped in at Dicks today and they had some .22 bird shot but that's it in .22. Told me to come in tomorrow at 8:45 before they open and they would hold up to 6 boxes for 1/2 hour for me. This is craziness!
