Me too! Iím glad that Chuck turned me on to Freedom Munitions back then. Now I'm sitting on a goodly amount of ammo.

Could be worse really.
The true shortages seem to be focused on low end and/or "practice ammunition"
I received these day before yesterday. Could have bought a LOT more also, but no need to be greedy.

WOW!

That means that I could go out and buy myself a new Porsche if I sold all the 223, 9mm and .45 ACP I've got stashed! These are "interesting times" to say the least.

(And I'm not considering all the .38 Spl, 357 and .44 Mag packed in .50 cal cans either. That would fetch a 3-Series BMW at least. )

I have bought a few boxes every now and then...have a good supply of what I need. I was down at a popular gun dealer here in the area several days ago. No 380, had some Russian made 9MM, can't wait to see how they shoot. They had some 45's so I bought some of those. Shotgun shells are still available....I have some of those also. So many new gun buyers out there now and no ammo.

The other day, I was talking with a friend who owns an ammo manufacturing company around the corner in Needville and he was saying that a shortage of primers is still causing his production bottlenecks. If he could get primers, he could run 24/7
