I heard they are available in a Southern state but hate to make a 8 hour drive for nothing.

Pie in the sky type comment. Yah like writing about holding back on one of hundreds of gun forums is going to make a difference?

Visit most any trap, skeet or sporting club and hear serious shooters say they're not going to get fooled again and are buying and stockpiling whatever their finances allow. At inflated but not crazy prices.

I stockpiled during Trumps term. Wish I did more and hope I am set for this term of Sleepy Joe. But prices are insane. What I bought for $20,000.00 would now bring almost $80-100,000.00. Primers are just out of sight and people are still buying them. Metallic cartridges, in some calibers, are a buck or more each, for stuff which was .50 each last year. .22 ammo is once again costing like center fire ammo. Only shot seems to be holding steady and that is most likely because people can not find stuff to reload it with. And panic buying is causing people to buy every drop of powder just in case they can use it. You can smoke in most gun shop powder isles and not risk anything other than cancer. Shelves are bare.

I do not see ammo makers being able to or willing to increase the production to bring prices down. Why build extra capacity and risk flooding the market only to then having to shutdown that new production? No matter what we do this shortage of stuff will be here for a year or two more at the minimum. Next time, when prices return to normal pick a few special items and stock up because I do not think this is the last time we will see this.

If you can find some decent tobacco.

You would do better to put the blame for ammo hoarding and massive gun buying strictly where it belongs. This is happening due to the very real threat from anti-gun Liberal Left Democrats.

Don't blame a few guys on this forum for asking about or commenting on shortages or massive price increases. Don't blame the manufacturers. Blame the Democrats who are following through on their promise to enact new gun laws and gun bans. And blame the guys right here, or standing next to you at the skeet range, who helped the anti-gunners by supporting and voting for them.

We don't share a common interest in guns with these guys. Stop falling for that nonsense.

Guys who truly like guns and cherish their right to own and shoot them have no business supporting the anti-gunners who are attempting to take them. You can wake up to that fact now, or wake up ten years from now wondering what happened to your guns and 2nd Amendment.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

My only shortage during the current ammo crisis was percussion caps. I mentioned the problem to my metalsmith who shook out a few into a bag for me. When I said they looked old, he told me they went back 40 years. That reminded me I had some after all. For some reason I've held on to some I got as a kid but later felt were of no use. I dug out five tins of Fiocchi # 11's and found they work jusy fine after 65 years.
