Thread: Tight Ammo Supply

    Very short supply on .380, 9mm, .40., and .45 at Walmarts here in Vegas. Nomama might not have to worry about banning guns!

    I think I have 16 rounds for the 44 and a maybe 200 win 115gr target loads for the 9. Does that make me a mall ninja?
    The "mall ninja" types are the ones who act as if they know what they're doing, have a bunch of gear that they don't know how to use, and end getting into trouble instead of getting others out of it. Being prepared with your ammo is far from "mall ninja" behavior. Unless you're gonna tell us how it is "in combat", but you've never been in combat.

    everytime I go to wally world I check on their ammo. a couple weeks ago they did not even have any .22 remington in the bulk packs. since then I have found some. also have been buying whatever they have left of .40, .45, and I think I am almost set with enough 9mm. of course that "almost" never really goes away... just been buying less 9mm than the others. also been buying .30-06 because the prices just keep going up!

  5. Y'all need to start reloading. There is no supply shortage of bullets and powder. I loaded 500 rounds of 45ACP last night for about $15/100 and picked up another 300 or so cases at the range yesterday.

    Stopped by a local Walmart today for the first time in months. Checked the ammo supply and found the counter almost empty. Spotted a couple of boxes of WWB .40, 0 9mm, a bunch of .22 LR and bridshot shotgun shells. Ouch. Wonder if it's like that across the area. The Bass Pro had a good supply, but they are more expensive that WM.

    Called 2 Walmarts, 1 Farm and Fleet and the local Cabellas and can't find any .45 acp!!! It runs $55 for 150 rnds. of FMJ 230gr. at the range. Those all went down the pipe last night. Am thinking of re-loading.

    just got back from shooting and checked on the supply at wal mart again. they had a few boxes of 9mm, .40, but they were out of .45 still. they had a ton of .22 this time. I ended up getting some 9mm and some .30-06.

    Wallace World wasn't kind to me today. They were completely tapped on 9mm. The sales clerk said a guy came in last night and bought most of the ammo. The same dude came back this morning and purchased the remaining boxes. Hoard much?

    They had plenty of 22LR and shotgun shells. They also had a few boxes of .40 and .45.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    For all we know, the guy could have been an NRA instructor or volunteer coordinating some type of shooting function where they needed a lot of ammo. I'd check around at other stores in the area.

    The current scarcity of ammo is a good reason why we should own multiple firearms in varoius calibers, and become proficient at shooting our different firearms. By familiarizing ourselves with many different guns, we'll increase our chances of finding the ammo we need once our stockpiles have been exhausted.

    Ammo isn't the only thing in short supply. Reloading equipment is as well. Many dies and presses are back ordered 45 days or more at MidwayUSA.
