I was afraid this would happen. It's funny though. I've been selling off my excess powders and ammo for the last month at msrp plus a few bucks to cover tax. Most of it has gone quick. Probably not wise but I don't need it and others seem to really appreciate it. In a few years I'll buy more of what I need. Until then I just have to hope the nuts on the far left and the far right don't screw things up too bad.

If you are trying to buy guns or ammo right now you might not be a redneck.

It has come down to that you better have enough ammo to keep you shooting for at least 2 years if not 4. Not to mention enough components to load up what you shoot if you are a reloader.

Next September hunters are going to be hurting for ammo for the deer and elk hunts.

$150.
No, I am not joking.

My local Ace was selling 9mm for $45 a box. Basic FMJ stuff.

I'd love to find a case of 20GA Remington STS #8 or #7.5. Dove hunt is only 7 months away.

I put my ammo supply away by the cases 25 years ago when I was a dealer.....
Was much, much cheaper then.

You take things for granted for sure. Even in the previous runs on ammo it was really 223 and 22lr that you had a hard time finding. Powders and reloading supplies can get sparse when folks freak out. Iíve never NOT been able to find just regular hunting ammo, and shotguns shells are usually pretty easy to come by as well.

Thanks a lot, 2020! I did an inventory of all my ammo a couple weeks ago. If weíre strictly talking hunting out in the field, Iíve got enough ammo to last a LONG time. If I use a gun until I run out of that ammo, then switch to another, I donít expect Iíll run out in my lifetime of hunting. And that accounts for some missed shots along the way.

But like you, I like to shoot in the off-season, and that is where Iíd burn through my supply pretty quickly if I was not careful there.

I am not in panic mode, Iíll be fine. But I will not take things for granted in the future in this realm, thatís for sure.
