I love our Bass Pro here in Denver. Henry the dog freaks out over all the stuffed animals.....

Carlsbad0331 Over the last month the company that I work for moved to a larger location in Oceanside, CA. The previous occupant of the location was also a manufacturer of tactical gear, but they also built custom rifles.
Thursday night an associate and I hear a large truck pull up to the dock and we go back. The driver asks for the previous company (that moved to Texas) and we tell them they have moved. He then tells me that he has an entire pallet of ammunition... OH SHIT, hell yeah they are still here! Where do I sign!!!

Haha I always want ammo, but no thanks! thanks for the offer though.

I got a connection, 30 bucks for 525.. still a bit overpriced but better than 50 for 525.

krisbman Good luck finding any in Oregon unless you want a box of .22 bird shot. Cabelas has nothing all the mom n pop shops have squat and theres more dust on the bi mart shelves than ammo, however i think i just got a connection so we will see.
05-15-2013 08:05 PM
Davidramil03 I miss the days when you could get a 550 box of .22 for $10

fan of fanboys 9mm and 12 gauge slug hard to find here. And when I find its overpriced.
Buddy in Salisbury MD said last week he can barely find 9mm either

That's all I do. The only factory ammo I've shot in the past couple of years are a few .22 rounds and maybe 8 6.5mm Swedish.

The ammo shortage hits all. Powder and primers are required for home-rollers as well as Federal/Remington/etc. We can scare up the odd box of primers or container of powder, but it's a part-time job to scrounge supplies, and the last box of bullets I bought cost me $130/thousand of shitty cast-lead wax-ring .40 (I usually pay about $68/thousand for moly-coat).

TheyCallMeSnow I will re-load my shotgun shells eventually. But .22 I heard you can't reload..

socal-jk Its a bubble that will burst at some point. Californians on the other hand will probably have issues with ammo and guns for the foreseeable future..... I now have another excuse to go to Vegas and AZ for vacation.... buy ammo. I picked up a DPMS LR-308 back in dec (it was in its 10 day gun jail when Sandy Hook happened) and I can't get mags or anything let alone pay an arm and leg for .308

After O was elected, everyone lost their collective shit (HEZ COMIN FER MY GUNZZZZZ) and bought every firearm they could find. Ammo makers were already running at near max capacity in 2009 due to this as well as military purchases. Things never really got back to a steady-state, since there were FAR more guns out there which needed ammo (I'm making the assumption that some of the guns bought in panic 4 years ago are actually used).

After Sandy Hook, the panic machine ramped up to 11, and the hoarding went through the roof. Ammo makers have not done anything to increase capacity of manufacturing (you can only make ammo 24 hours/day) like building more facilities due to many factors.

I reload 99% of my ammo and am currently unable to get bullets. I usually shoot Bear Creek, and rumors are that the lead mine they use was flooded during the wet winter in northern CA. It sucks, because panicky idiots are preparing for the cataclysm which will never happen.

Economics 101. When demand exceeds supply, shortages happen. If manufacturers do not increase capacity, shortages do not dissipate.

groovebus I stopped shooting the minute I couldn't buy powder and primers for reloading. I have enough ammo stored, but I don't want to use it until I can at least get more components. I use to go out to the range once a month, I haven't been since Nov.
