Is it hard to find hunting ammo in your area? It's hard to find here in NE PA and prices are more than double if you can find what you are looking for. Sad but true!

Well food is up about 33% (once you factor in that the packaging is shrinking too). I think baseline everything is up about 25%. If the Titanic sinks, don't be surprised. All too likely some of us will be happily rowing our own little boats soon enough. (...OR maybe less happily, doggie paddling or drowning)!!!

It was the perfect storm which created the shortage. The combination of shutting down the economy due to COVID and the unchecked riots in liberal-run cities during the summer of 2020 caused gun and ammunition sales to increase exponentially among Americans who feared the government charged with their protection could no longer be relied upon.

I've been able to find ammunition for the most common calibers at various gun shows, but at a premium price. The vendors at these shows are also looking for people who want to sell. Gun ranges have suffered immensely as well because people don't want to squander their ammo.

Last time a Democrat was the president, Ammo was hard to get

and expensive. Maybe that is the problem
