Looking for ammo?

If you have tried to buy ammo online any time in recent months you likely have run into the issue of out-of-stock items. There is a major shortage happening since the beginning of 2021 and it isn’t expected to get any better in 2022.

This has driven prices higher than ever before when you can even find what you are looking for. Shooting as a hobby or just for practice has gotten to be a more expensive sport. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the prices are estimated at a whopping 200 to 300 percent higher than in 2019.

Firearms enthusiasts report a price increase in many rounds from .20 cents to .65 cents. In 2020 there were an estimated 11 million first-time gun buyers. That is a massive increase in gun owners here in the USA. The rise is attributed to the change in the economy, politics, the pandemic, and a rise in the belief that one may actually need to defend one’s own home at some point.
