Reason #1...Obama got re-elected
Reason #2...People are panic buying because of Reason #1

I took an inventory today and concluded that I can't get any more ammo in the bunker. I have ample primers, brass and powder to last until we change directions. I did order a couple thousand bullets today. The mail lady is gonna hate me when they come.
Last time we had a shortage of ammo I had a tough time getting primers, and when I could they were outrageous. I took care of that when they got back to normal.

I don't need to buy anymore ammo, I have been adding to and maintaining a stock pile for about 35 years. I also have ammo that I got from my Dad that he bought in the late 1930's to the late 1960's and will be passed on, along with any remaining guns, to my four kids when I leave this world.

Probably varies area to area. Plenty around here locally. My wife & sister in law both work at the local Wal Mart, they upped the order points a bit, and are selling more since the election, but are still well stocked on everything they usually carry. No worries here, yet.

Good luck finding .45s about all handgun ammo is getting hard to find here unless you want junk Blazer or over priced hollow points. Paper punching ammo is scarce like it was in 08 when obamy was elected. .223s and 5.56 are impossible under $400 a 1000 if you find em.

Picked up 2 boxes of Federal 9mm 115gr HP's @ $14.95 ea, 6 boxes of Tula 223 this weekend at Wally World. They had plenty of 40s&w and some Tula and PPU 45acp. Not as bad as '08

Might be a good idea to increase the inventory with some additional 7.62x39 and 7.62x51, for those who have sporting rifles in that caliber.

We're in good shape on most calibers in the Mobile area. Unless you're looking for 5.7x28mm that is.
