    I was looking for some .380 ammo to try out my new kel tec 3AT and guess what. . . . I can't find anything resembling a .380 auto ant wal mart, Academy, and Bass Pro. (the only thing there was .40, 10mm, and 45 GAP.)

    I tried five days later, and same result.

    When is this ammo craze gonna be over?!!

    I couldn't find fmj or any of the expensive stuff.

    I could order, but most of the sites I usually order stuff from are backordered and shipping is a pain.

    Any ideas? In San Antonio.

    .380 Ammo

    The wife and I went to Carters Country in Spring, TX. last week and they had a lot of .380 ammo.

    I have not figured out if the ammo shortage is being caused by all the new gun owners buying ammo to shoot or if it's people just stocking up.

    I'm away on business and decided to hit the range. I stopped in Shreveport, no ammo. So, when I hit Monroe....I detoured at the Academy. They wanted $43 for a WWB 230gr 100 round value pack. It took the guy 30 minutes to get Walmart to do a price check so he could price match them. I was only going to get 200 rounds for my shooting session, but picked up 500 because I had to wait so long.....that, at least, made the wait worthwhile.

    The Spring Carters Country has ammo cause its a range. They are sure proud of their ammo too.
    Try stopping in wallyworld in the mornings before I buy it all up.

    Thunder Gun Range in Conroe was running some pretty good specials on 1000-round cases...I wanna say $230 or so for .45 ACP if my memory serves....

    I've found Carter's Country to be pretty competitive on practice ammo....although you can do better on personal protection ammo.

    And it's hard to find reloading equipment locally right now too...at least I can't seem to lay my hands on pistol dies (just wanting to get started)....

    I'm sure in time this will end, and we can get our ammo again...

    I have the same problem here in Dallas. I went to 3 walmarts around my city and they are out of those ammos. I just purchased 500 rounds for $115 at the last Gun Show. Look like Gun Show is the only place for me to get ammo now.
