Most stores have been limiting sales to customers, which has been inconvient for many customers; but a good overall policy so target shooters are able to have chance at stock. Gander Mountain customers have been lining up in front of stores before they open, to get chance at stock. Also, see customers getting numbers for service in gun departments. Gun Shops with ranges have been limiting customers one box per day, so their target shooters have an opportunity. Retail chains have also put in some limits, but prior to this saw and hurd of customers spending $400, $500, $800, $1100, $1300 on ammo at Walmart.

I went to a gun show in ft. wayne, ind over the weekend... plenty of guns on the tables for sale.. including ar's for $699... as for ammo, at least around here the reloaders have taken up the slack by the recent ammo shortage... I didn't see anyone buying the so called brand name ammo, Winchester, Remington, federal, ect but the a lot of people buying reloads... me included... finally had the opportunity to buy some 9mm, which I still don't see on the shelf any where.. sure there were people there who had the brand name ammo on the table but at triple the price it should have been... didn't see any of it selling.. go figure?? no doubt here in time, ammo will be back on the shelf... it was like this in 2008 before Obama was elected and then afterwards, it eased up...
Those AR's and AK's have really come down to real life prices again, something that indicates the bubble has popped.
I think ammo is being bought up by Govt. to force down gun ownership. Next will be taxing ammo and making it like cigarettes, now 5 times the price of a pack just 7 years ago.
