Well I talked to my local sporting good manager and they informed me that they cant or wont order anymore 223 556 7.62 or 22 ammo anytime soon... anyone know whats up with that? I cant see how they would justify that. Pulling guns is one thing, but pulling ammo is just absurd.

My store got a shipment (.223 100 pks and others) in on Wed night, new stock was put out sometime Thurs and was gone when I arrived at last night. I knew I should have stuck around long enough to get my hands on some.

I believe that the present Presidential Admin is reaching out and telling these Big name stores to start reducing the availability of ammo to the public.  It's a known fact that there have been 'closed door' discussions with Gander Mountain, Wal-Marts and a few other CEO's at these meetings with VP Biden. Now,  suddenly, these 'Assault rounds' are disappearing and not being restocked. Once they're sold , that's it.  I know these rounds are 'hot' right now, maybe it's just a matter of resupplying. But when store managers are saying now, right after these closed door meetings in Wash DC that they 'Can't or won't order ' any more, something stinks in Washington DC.  I think a total war is being declared on gun owners and we've only seen the beginning. Anti-gunners have said for years, take away the ammo, or tax it so high that folks can't afford it. Then guns become useless. No guns~~No crime. In their minds, it's a" Sensible Gun Law'.  :eek:

The Walmart in Humboldt had some 100 round boxes of Federal 45ACP. The price had gone up from 29.95 to 33.95. Not sure how many boxes they had as I was looking for 22LR. They had10 boxesof 100 round 22 LR that moring but only had 1 box left when I got there.  That one box was over $7.00 for plain round nose Remington. They pulled out a box of 223 from under the counter for the guy behind me. Plenty of 40 but no 9MM in stock.

The store in Bartlett got in 4 of the 420 round 5.56 ammo cans last night. The employee I talked with said they had customers standing around the counter at midnight waiting as they put tax stamps on them. They were gone like that.

The same employee also said that the store in Millington also got 4 cans and word is an employee there bought them and then went out in the parking lot and resold them. I'd hate to know that was true.

Another thing that ticked me off was at a local pawn shop they had 10 boxes of american eagle 5.56 but had a posted sign limting ammo to 2 boxes a customer. All of the sudden I see a guy walk out with after buying all 10 boxes at one time. At the same time I seen them marking surplus metal ar mags for 49.99.

Got a source for this?

 

Truth is everybody with a gun is in a panic and is buying everything they can get their hands on. The conspiracy about ammo doesn't exist.

Just left my WW and the guy behind the counter said he is getting ammo in almost everyday and it sells out within an hour or so no matter how much they get in. He said they got a bunch of ammo this morning and it was gone in 30mins. He said they don't even put it in the display, just sell it straight out of the shipping box.
