So I'm not really new to shooting, but I am pretty new to gun ownership. I bought my first firearm last November, just before everything went to hell in a hand basket. I bought a .22 and along with it a box of ammo. I didn't go look for the ammo, the salesman went and got it, so I never really looked at what all was in stock. Shortly after, sandy hook happened and every shelf was empty. So my question is, after that lengthy preface, what was it like before all of this? Was ammo plentiful and the roads paved with gold? Could you just walk in any store that sold ammo and find what you needed? If so, will those days return? I'm tired of feeling like I'm always on the hunt just to feed my guns, and usually coming up short. And sorry in advance if this has been covered or asked.
