    New Ammo Scarcity Problem

    Hi Guys.
    Just thought I'd warn you guys. The ordinary lead shot shells disappeared in the past few days at the wholesale level. We've been buying Federal, Estate and Winchester AA without a hitch until last week. This whole week we have seen absolutely nothing in any wholesale supply chain. That's lead shot in all the trap and skeet sizes , as well as lead shot for ground birds. I do not know what happened other than I can't get them.
    Fair warning!
    LI Ammo, 2 Larkfield Rd. East Northport, (closed Sundays during Covid Apocalypse)

    Death by 1000 cuts.

    Thanks Alan, for the update. Who would have ever thought that their ammo stash would be increasing in value more than their stock portfolio?

        I was going to hit Walmart in Riverhead yesterday but the garden center entrance was closed and I was to lazy to walk through the whole store. I hope this shortage won’t effect the ranges too much. All the online retailers have nothing. No ammo , primers , powder and now the bullets are scarce

          The Riverhead Wally World shelves have been bare for weeks. Two weeks ago I waited for 30 min for someone to unlock the case for the last two 5 rnd boxes of 20 ga #1 buck. There was one box of 28 ga shells left.

          Or on the trigger of your gun?

                I thought Walmart pulled them off the shelves and you had to call first.

                  That was reversed pretty quickly.

                      Yeah, all t he talk of civil war and they shuty down the ammo supply chain. Don't matter how many people hoarded and how much they hoarded.....need ammo to fight and if the well runs dry, that's it. They don't have to take the guns away, just the ammo is enough to ensure a quick resolution on the civil war front. We're in for a world of hurt if we don't get our shit together ASAP.

                        Not looking to stir the pot, but remember when we used to say people would start paying attention when they couldn’t find 30-30 ammo and bird shot?

                              Hunting season is over. FUDDs aren't going to notice till October.
