Well I didn't think it could get worse but damn if it didn't. I have been on line and calling places looking for some 2 1/2" 410 target loads.
I was lucky the other day to find a guy that had some 28's and he had some 410's but in #6.
So if one is to believe that eight million new shooters are causing this I'm not buying it. I would think the new gun owners would be buying pistol ammo.
At my gun club they are now restricting sale of ammo to limited boxes only if you are shooting there that day.
This has got to start hurting the gun clubs, Saturday at my club there was only one guy on the pistol range when usually it is full.

Not sure if this is accurate or not, but seemed informative:

I tried two Walmarts and Academy Sports trying to find some 20 ga. shells for test firing and none were to be had. They had 12, 16, and 28 but not very much. None of the stores have any center fire or rimfire rifle and pistol ammo. Our local Wildlife range has lots of people at the handgun range and 90% are new faces. Most are first time gun owners. People are scared.

I think Vanderbrink and Hornady are correct and telling the truth. There is an old saying that a traffic jam is a collision between free enterprise and statism. Industry can supply all the cars we need but the state is woefully inadequate supplying the roads. In this case, the state and its allies are terrifying people faster than industry can provide the arms.

Recently a local gun store was burgled. I hope the thieves found more guns than the rest of us. That's like digging for ice cubes in Sahara.

I wish I could buy primers and bullets so I can just go the range and enjoy shooting.

I passed thru a couple local Walmarts & only 28 bore was available. And it appears that they are getting out of gun sales as the gun carrousels had been removed and a small glass display with trail cameras replaced it.

Just be happy you don't live in Kalifornia! DOJ has to approve you to buy shotgun shells.


I learn something every day, and a lot of times it's that what I learned the day before was wrong

Hello gentlemen:

If you think your ammo shortage is bad, see what happens south of the border: to purchase shotgun ammo and 22 lr, you need to make an appointment by e-mail, then they give you a date 4-5 weeks ahead.

When you arrive to the store (it is located in a military facility) at exatly the our of your appointment, you are informed that you can only buy 1,000 shotgun shells and 500 22lr.

The worst part is that you are happy when you go out the store, because you have some ammo!!

The pandemia changes our lives worldwide.

Best regards,

Thank you, Jose. Sometimes we, in America, need to be reminded how fortunate we are, and not complain so much.

When we stop complaining...is when we end up in Jose’s situation. I say complain and complain loud....if you think the politicians haven’t taken notice of the shortages and their gears aren’t spinning in their head on how to make this an advantage to their anti-2nd amendment agenda...well, it’ll be the beginning of the end. California’s ammo laws are what they’re aiming for for the rest of the country.

Agreed for the most part, Dustin. But, complaining on a shotgun forum isn't going to make the politicians take heed. Voting the antigun ones out of office will. Complaining here is like preaching to the choir.

Gave a guy at work a couple bricks of old .22 ammunition, mostly Winchester Wildcat, from the early 80s. Had his back against the wall trying to finish his pistol league. I didn’t realize how tough things had gotten out there.

I’d bet it gets no better, at least not for the next four years. They promised it.

Best,
Ted
