A few of them out there, but more or less talking about RST.

I wonder how they’re going to survive this component/supply shortage? I’m no business major, but it seems having almost zero inventory for the last year and a half would force them to close their doors for good.
I understand how the major ammunition companies can survive this component drought, but I just can’t see how a small company like RST pulls out of this. Same goes for the component supply stores & warehouses. BPI, Precision, Grafs, etc. Hardly any of them have much of a stock. How do they keep their doors open with virtually nothing to sell?

I think Stan has nailed the likely scenario. The jurisdiction I live in has had one of the most draconian sets of rules for Covid in NA. Most small businesses have been closed to foot traffic traffic. And yes, some have closed for good. But the majority have cut expenses to the bone and found a way to keep a little cash flow happening.

The government mandated closures have been brutal on small and medium businesses and manna sent from heaven for large multinationals. Something isn’t right.

Just picked up my second flat of Gamebore 28 gauge in the last three months. Also got a flat of Gamebore 20 gauge when I got the first flat of 28 gauge. I'm buying when I can because I just added 20 and 28 gauges to my shotgun selection this past winter. I would say my strategy of slowly buying an excess of shells to my annual needs is paying off. I am extremely well stocked with 12 and 16 gauge specialty loads for vintage guns and the shortages of the last year have been meaningless to me and would need to go on for several more years before it would affect me.

Ammo. It's compact, it holds it's value, it doesn't go bad. Why not keep a good supply?

I’ve decided since steel and bismuth are in such short supply I ought to use lead shot this year. Do you think the game wardens will understand? Maybe my lead shot will identify as non toxic shot.
