Ammunition Shortage * 1
    #26889888 - 08/20/20 12:57 PM (29 days, 13 hours ago)

Good luck finding 22LR, 9mm, 5.56mm ammo. I’m doing my annual Thanksgiving road trip early this year before the riots and road blockings get worse in November. I haven’t found any ammo except for some of the less popular rifle cartridges and shotgun shells, lots of shotgun shells. Any theories about this?

Gun sales have been higher than they ever have been due to the pandemic and all the looting and rioting under the guise of BLM, so the supply simply cannot keep up with the demand.  It is also an election year so people have been panic buying because they fear a DNC candidate will take away their ability to buy guns and ammo if he wins.

I bought 10mm, .45LC, and 20 gauge after going through the panic buying during the Obama and Biden regime.  It was a good decision because they are actually stocked locally this time around, too.

A gun gives you a feeling of safety, so, in times of great anxiety, people buy guns and ammo.

Too bad Walmart doesn't sell that ammo anymore.


They were the plug, tbh.  Their pricing was insane by me.  Way cheaper than bulk purchases online

Reloading is where its at. For like $500 you can start.  Will pay for itself very quickly.

I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”

I was into reloading 35 years ago. After living in apartments for a while I quit shooting all together and got rid of my equipment. The Cold War ended, it just seemed like guns were a thing of past. So SirTripsAlot, is there reloading supplies available now? There is tons of free brass available at the range.

22 ammo has been hard to find for like a decade where I am. All the fake revolutionaries and overweight militia types are greedy as fuck.

What are you really going to do with a .22, besides tin cans and crows? The mafia likes them, but they shoot people in the head from zero to 1 inch distance, and you really don't need a silencer.

But yeah, I googled "shortage of ammunition" and they're saying it could last till some point next year. It's caused by panic, same reason why gold has soared.

A .22 is one of the best survivalist guns. Thats why its one of the first calibers to sell out like this. I know some rednecks that Jack deer with .22s all the time. Gotta hit an in the eye.

If you're that good of a shot. Are they just one of the best survivalist guns because the ammo is so relatively cheap, under normal conditions? When I looked it up, there were articles on ammo shortages, and particularly articles on .22LR shortages. I'm guessing supply and demand means when it is available it's going to be expensive.

I think thats the main reason.

You can get a thousand rounds for wayyyy less than 5.56

Youre not going to kill rabbits and squirrels and other small game with hunting rifles, and where I am in upstate ny the deer arent afraid of people at all. So yeah getting that eye shot isnt very hard. The guys im talking about also Jack them out of their truck and headlight spot them too, so there is that. https://offgridsurvival.com/bestsurvivalrifle/

Rabbits and especially squirrels are airgun game.

Its rather overkill to shoot a squirrel with a .22 LR

A box of random no name fmj 9mm is $60 a box of 50 now. When it was only $10-12 6 months ago.

I purchased a .22 WMR for my bug out rifle because the ammunition is light, it was readily available when to .22lr  was empty off the shelves, and the soft point 40gr projectiles are capable of "deterring" unarmored targets

22wmr is underrated. Always a little pricy but it stayed stable in pricing while everything else went bonkers

Man I wish I had no sense of morals, so I could comfortably take advantage of conservatives, the easiest marks on the face of the earth. Whip them up into a frenzy and make them hoard bullets they’ll never use, or just sell them bricks to build a wall made of steel slats, or make America great merch made in China.

You guys know you’re total suckers, right?

Can you sell single bullets or will the cops choke you to death if they catch you doing it?
