    Gun buying craze might be a cause? Or maybe it's just because many people were buying before/for CHRISTMAS. Not sure, but a valid question. I went on a trip to S E Ky over Christmas to see relatives. Went in several WalMarts looking for .223 ammo. Noticed that all stores were not only out of .223 but also .22 LR.

    It sucks. Most of my guns are .22s and I can't even shoot them because of stupid people panic buying

    These "panic buy" situations keep happening. Looks like if you want to shoot on a regular basis we need to stock up during the non panic times. Ammo doesn't go bad, and the price doesn't go down. It will keep the ammo makers well funded, and give everyone a buffer during the panic times.

    Should any national emergency's arise, you will be covered.

    I bought 10,000 rounds of 22lr ammo this year. I can safely ride this one out. Am I worried that the ammo shortage will be long term? No. I do plan on buying another 10,000 when supplies return to normal, and I will wait until then.

    I have not been able to find any either and only have about a brick left. I have deceided to reload all ammo I have components for and just sit on it and not shoot. I will have to slowly locate things and stock my shelf back up. People have cleaned everybody out. I even called my buddy FFL and he answered the phone "I dont have any AR's". He made a ton of cash but has nothing to speak of left in stock. I even though about casting my own bullets and trying to find some junk lead.
    I won’t be wronged, I won’t be insulted, and I won’t be laid a hand on.
