It is getting scary but I still can get any round possible still, at least any that a wal mart would stock. Just depends on where u look.

"listedn to us and stocked up". Let's see : what could POSSIBLY have caused the panic buying? Identical advice from other PABs?
I mean, what the heck, nobody knows if ammo is EVER going to be available again...better buy all you can now on Gunbroker from whatever mouthbreather you can, and whatever price you can, in the best traditions of free-market bubble economics. Jeez, we sure are lucky to have nice even-tempered advice from single-issue experts like OffGridSurvival.

The Ammo Shortage/Panic has dried up supplies around the country. Hopefully you listened to us and stocked up a long time ago; if you didn’t you won’t be finding ammo anytime soon.
With the national dialogue being dominated by gun control, people have been buying up ammo like nothing I’ve ever seen. The waiting list on semi-automatic rifles, handguns and ammunition has grown so long that a number of major retailers have actually told their stores to stop ordering because their orders cannot be filled.
I have received word from a number of sources that most of the major retailers in this country will not be receiving any significant resupply of ammo for at least a couple months. The problem has gotten so bad that even police departments are starting to feel the effects.
Police departments around the country have started rationing ammo supplies and cutting back on training exercises to make sure their active duty officers have enough ammo to do their jobs. A number of public officials have actually started to call for new legislation that would allow police departments to buy up huge stockpiles of ammo before it ever becomes available to the public.
Retailers Can’t Restock Ammunition Inventory
Even before the talk of a coming gun ban started, ammo was becoming hard to find. From fears of an economic collapse to the general distrust of our government, Americans were starting to realize that they needed to be able to protect themselves. Once the government announced they were coming after guns, the supply of everything started to dry up.
Bass Pro will not receive new .22lr ammo shipments for 3-4 months.
This morning I talked to someone over at Bass Pro who informed me that they can no longer get .22lr ammo from the manufactures. According to my source at Bass Pro, they have been told by a number of major manufacturers that they will not be sending anything out until at least April.
9MM looks even worse.
The same source informed me that most 9mm ammo is looking even worse. In fact, their popular Remington® UMC 9mm Mega Packs are on backorder until December 2013.
Walmart Tells Stores to Stop Ordering Ammo
A contact we have at Walmart told us they are no longer sending any 9mm or .22lr ammo to their stores. This was confirmed by a manager at a local Walmart who told me,“he just go a memo from the corporate office telling them to stop ordering ammo.” According to Walmart, the problem is do to a lack of supply from the manufactures.
How long these ammo shortages will last is anyone’s guess. With so many retailers bowing down to political pressure and voluntarily suspending sales, it doesn’t look like things will be getting back to normal anytime soon. My guess is that ammo will be hard to come by for at least another 6 months, possibly even longer. And based on what I was told out at the SHOT Show, AR style weapons and semi-automatic rifles will be hard to find for at least another year.
If this doesn’t wake people up I don’t know what will. If the Ammo supply can dry up this quickly, what do you think will happen to the food supply during a major nationwide emergency event?

It's because of all of the christians hoarding things. Just like jesus would NOT. LMAO You sorry mo fos. So fucking scared and stupid. All at the same time. UPS drivers report dollies full of ammo still being delivered. With managers waiting at store doors like kids at christmas counting the new guns coming in. Quit posting right wing propaganda. All anybody has to do is go steal bubbas ammo that he hoards like a fool.
