    To little to late

    Noticed a price in cress slipping thru. Still product is scarce but I see other players entering the market and doing a better job with supply. I was looking to China. but seems Korea and Italy are offering product. So much for BUY America. I believe the fake shortage will change the way we think of buying and using Ammo. Shooters are pulling back from recreational shooting for obvious reasons. Consumer inventory building will soon end, even I have about all I need and have been giving away 22 shells to friends. I still need 223/5.56
    but looks like foreign suppliers will have that business. Who ever dropped the ball here, great way of destroying market share. mho

    • When ammo sales figures as stated in the earnings are up 60% year over year I don't think that qualifies as a "fake ammo shortage". There may not be any real reason behind the initial shortage but once it started and continued this long the demand is real as all owners are stocking up so they never get stuck again.
