Iím stored up also. The other day I went to two different Academy Stores while there I looked at their ammo shelves nothing. I did notice while I was looking around there was young man buying a pistol, they got him a box of ammo out of the cabinet behind the counter, good business. I get emails from Cheaper Than Dirt canít believe the prices they have on the ammo.

I was at our Academy store the other day to get some dog treats...I always go by the Ammo area. They have been out for some time...the shotgun shells have really increased in price. I just about passed out there in the aisle when I seen the price. This is in Middle Tennessee. We go to Central Florida during the cold months and I like to shop at Rural King for ammo. I know they are probably out also....

Back before Father's Day many places were out of ammo. I always suggest to the kids....just get me a box of ammo. Well, no Ammo so I got a Cracker Barrel gift card. I would love to go to the range but as other have mentioned....need to save it.

There basically isn't any handgun ammo; rifle ammo is available in some calibers, and there is a lot of shotgun ammo to be found. Reloading supplies are spotty, getting scarce, and if anybody has a stash of extra small pistol primers, let me know!

Nothing, nada, here in Utah. The shelves are bare of both rifle and pistol ammo. The powder shelves are bare. The bullet shelves are bare. The primer shelves are bare. No doubt sleepy, creepy, slow Joe will make it worse. I have lots of brass though. Maybe I could put fins on them and use them in my sling shot.

It is worse this time than the last shortage. Last time I could purchase ammo although it was expensive. Fortunately my laser bullet still works...

Ammo is still scarce as hen's teeth here SW of Houston. I can find dribs & drabs. I have a buddy who owns a range who can get some and he supplies me with a bit. Haven't been shooting as much because of the shortage. Went Sunday and could really tell I am rusty.

Went to Wally World yesterday and scored on TP and Shotgun shells. Academy might as well shutdown their firearms area.

Learned last time. Loaded up on primers , powder and projectiles. Also hand loaded 3000 rounds of every caliber I shoot. Iím good for quite a while. Store shelfís empty out as fast as they stock them when they do get ammo in. Dunhamís in Michigan usually gets a run once a month if you watch. Usually on a Tuesday. Limit 2 50 round boxes when they do have it.

I just say it like this! I was in one of the Acadamy Sports this morning killing some time went to the gun and ammo counter.

I have more guns and ammo squirreled away than Acadamy had for sale!
