im one of those "new gun owners". So I know nothing BUT these inflated prices and low supply. That being said, I have a pretty good stock at the moment. I order mainly from targetsportsusa and i check the website a few times daily etc. If I cared to be more high tech I guess id have alerts on a smart phone and life would be that much easier. If u r a prime member i think u get a 3 hour headstart alert. One local store will get a pallet of 5.56 in and theyll put it on fbook. They will limit you to 5 boxes (or 3 when it gets lower) but that pallet might last 2-3 weeks or so and you can go daily and somewhat stock up. The local Dunhams gets in 5.56/223 fairly regularly and 9mm a little less so but you have to check in regularly. People learn the delivery truck schedule but I cant be bothered. They also get in decent amounts of 22LR and you can stock up to a degree. They have lots of 22short so I assume not a lot of people shoot that There is plenty of 7.62 x 39 at several of the LGS I frequent. just today I bought 3 boxes of red army standard for like 5.99 each. Thats 30c/rd which aint bad for todays environment, compared to more like 60-65 for 223/556. Plenty of Wolf steel case out there. Dunhams has a good selection of all the hunting rds such as 243, 270, 300WM, 350 legend,450bushmaster yada yada. 6.5 creedmore is all over the place but pricey. Of course im sure the prices are hyperinflated but being a newb I dont have any "normal" to compare to. Almost all of the hunting rds are somewhat over $1/rd. Dunhams also has tons of shotgun stuff but I hear its almost all birdshot (I know nothing about shotguns but I always see pallets of 12g stuff at dunhams) if the ONLY gun you had was a 38 i think youd be screwed. I havent seen hardly any 38 anywhere and not much more 357.
