    G&A Perspective: Panic Purchases and the Volatile Ammo Market

    by Kyle Wintersteen


    Within weeks of President Obama’s 2008 election, my grandfather purchased an extra 100 rounds of .45 Colt and .357 Mag. I thought he was silly, and maybe even a little paranoid.


    “I just don’t like the uncertainty of having him in power,” the retired law enforcement officer and Korean War veteran told me. “[Obama] hasn’t shown an interest in gun control yet, but who knows? I want to have the ammo I need on hand, just in case.”


    Months later, I wish I’d followed grandpa’s lead. Supplies of popular calibers such as .223 Rem., .45 ACP, 9mm and .22 LR dried up. Twelve-gauge soon followed. In 2013, nearly all calibers—even the most obscure—are in frighteningly short supply.
