    ....to find. This is from Alan Korwin, author of Gun Laws of America, among others.

    I have not seen it, as I reload, but he usually is pretty good on his info.

    HOLD ON, there IS hope !

    Don't ROAST ME if YOUR store doesn't have much , right now. I am just passing along info, as I hear it PERIOD !

    Ammo Shortage Ending

    The lamestream media told you:
    Nothing.

    The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
    Ammo's back, stores are cutting their desperate orders for quantity, and manufacturers are starting to gag on excess inventory built up during the rush to supply demand, according to several sources and Miwall, the huge ammo wholesaler serving western state gun shows. The good news -- prices are starting to drop too. "We're getting new pricing almost daily," the wholesaler says, and that's expected to continue into the holidays. Probably. WalMart reportedly had 100-round boxes of 9mm on the shelves for $19.95.

    Marksmen, most of whom already have sizeable supplies, topped off until they are practically out of space, and their wives reportedly won't let them start storing the stuff in the kitchen. "None of us had a personal shortage," says one anonymous sportsman with a knowing grin, "it's just that we had a hard time replacing supplies or getting goods at cheap prices, so we went to the range less, and worried."

    According to an unpublished study I did for a think tank, Americans buy between five and nine billion rounds of ammo a year, virtually none of which is used in crime (the shooting sports are the number 2 consumer sport in the nation, behind exercise and ahead of golf).

    I was at Sports Academy on Sunday and the shelves were packed with pistol ammo. However, I found cheaper price on JHP at my gun range. Go figure

    i never bought into the hype from the beginning.

    I have two friends that work at major law firms, one in new york and one in D.C., and they informed me from the beginning that it would be political suicide for the administration to make any drastic laws concerning firearms.

    It wasn't just about Obama...during that time raw materials like Copper, steal, and lead was selling for a premium. This caused a spike in prices until the baltic index came crashing down.

    Anyhow, our local Academy is starting to keep steel cased .223 and 7.62 on the shelves but pistol calibers are still in short supply.

    I was in an Academy yesterday and noticed the ammo shelves were a lot fuller than they used to be. I shoot mainly 9mm and .45ACP and haven't been having any problem keeping enough ammo on hand for my needs now for a couple of months. Maybe we've turned the corner :happy0001:

    I agree, we won't see any attempt to implement gun control in one fell swoop but what must be guarded against is the "little by little" method the anti-gun nuts use. We already see limits on how many handguns or how much ammo can be purchased per month in some states and I feel sure that the "assault weapons" ban is going to be revisited in the near future by the current administration. Unless there are some serious changes in the 2010 elections the crowd in D.C. has a great opportunity to do a lot of damage in the next few years, even without making drastic all-at-once changes.

    I feel like we're the frog in the water that has the heat slowly being turned up. If the frog is dropped in boiling water he'll jump right out. Put him in a pot of cool water and increase the heat gradually and he's cooked before he knows it. Losing our rights (any of them, not just 2nd Amendment) will be an insidious process so we won't notice before it's too late.

    Sorry about the rant and I don't mean to hijack the thread, just feel strongly about this issue.
