Apparently you haven't heard that the DHS issued procurement orders for 1.6 BILLION rounds of a variety of ammo calibers. Since government orders preempt civilian orders it put a huge crimp in the supply lines to stores. The military also issued huge procurement orders for civilian calibers of ammo including .22, .38, 5.7mm, and all the standard hunting rifle calibers; and foreign orders for 7.62 and 8mm.
This is just an end run around the 2nd Amendment...if you don't have access to ammo your guns are just clubs. Next up from Obama will be a huge federal tax on all ammo under a little known provision of the Affordable Care Act, which will take effect next year. Remember, the Supremes just ruled that the federal government's authority to tax is virtually unlimited.


In my area - north of the Columbia River dealers I've checked with claim they're getting pretty much their usual ammunition supply however the problem is keeping it on the shelves. Not unlike when it became obvious the anointed one was going to win in 2008 and speculation and rumor fueled sales, hoarding and inflated prices (much like today). Local dealers have imposed rationing of ammo to try and keep gun show purveyors from buying every round possible and then reselling it very highly inflated prices.

It's interesting how demand for semi-auto rounds such as .45ACP, 9mm and .380mm outpace demand for .38/.357 rounds that are more common with revolvers. Seems to go hand-in-hand with the demand for semi-autos from first time buyers - semi-autos that they see the likes of Bruce Willis with in movies blasting away - with guns in both hands - and doing combat reloading with a single hand and his teeth. Gotta love theatrics. No starry eyed newbie wants a decent and reliable handgun like the S&W Model 60 and the HP semiwadcutter loads shown above.

Another consideration is that many dealers are at the mercy of wholesalers. Got to wonder how much of the tight market is the product of middlemen?

Brietbart did research and reporting in what that media outlet claimed were a lot of questionable stories flying around about ammunition manipulation by big brother - oh - and Big Sis, too. Not saying it's 100% accurate but here's an interesting summation by Breitbart:


Looks to me like there are plenty of factors impacting firearm and ammunition availability and sales these days. I believe that the federal government - along with some state governments - will try and manipulate availability through taxation. The executive orderer in chief is making those noises now. California is trying to push it through its legislature. When the prices go up so will black market. When that happens just stay away from the CC - corrosive crap - from Russia and the old Eastern Block. There isn't enough Hoppe's on earth to counteract that stuff.


Obama's minions are hard at work here in California. Governor Moonbeam just signed a law that would require those buying ammo to pass a background check. Moreover, it appears there will be additional state taxes levied on ammunition. We can now all stand while the Internationale is played.
