  • Ammo shortage

    At first I thought it was hype and the usual passing of talk. Well its pretty serious here. Lots of armed people going to 9mm now (at the last minute by the company) and it's really causing some problems for people who are qualifying and requalifying. So whats going on in your area?

    -Being bagger at Publix has more respect these days

    -It's just a job kid deal with it

    -The industry needs to do one of two things; stop fiddling with the thin line and go forward or go back to that way it was. A flashlight in one hand and your set of keys in the other

    9mm is scarce in South Florida. I used to be able to hit up my local Wal-mart for cheap Federal. Not any more.

      If you check all the calibers they have in Florida for Security and LE you would think they could come up with
      few calibers making production faster?

      10×22mm (.40 S&W)
      11.43×19mm (.45)
      11.43×23mm
      11.43×23mm (.45 )
      5.7×28mm
      9×19mm
      9×22mm (.357 SIG)
      0.38

      Reports are saying the military is buying lots of ammo............maybe thats some of the problem?
      I'm not exactly sure but it looks like .45 is more available than 9 or 38; why not add that to the calibers
      allowed in Florida for security?

        DHS is buying like "trillions" of rnds of .40 HP, to "protect us".


        Haven't seen handgun ammo at Walmart here in San Jose or Mtn View for months. Used to be mostly all well stocked all the time maybe two years ago. Even rare stuff like Sig357 or GAP45.

        They still have decent rifle shotgun ammo stock.

        Hard to find handgun ammo even online. I got a few boxes of assorted 9,40,357,45 new ammo I'd bought but didn't get around to shooting with other people's guns. Now I'm glad it got it. Any expiration date on factory American made ammo?


        These guys are about only "in stock" online place I've seen currently, kinda expensive! http://www.ammoforsale.com/

          That's been an ongoing debate down here. The DOL promised that caliber expansion would happen in 2012, allowing us to carry .40,
          .45 and the Sig .357. Hasn't materialized, yet.

            Yes the wheels turn slow; maybe ammo shortage can speed up the process

            Here is an account of a LEO that decided to reduce his caliber after an UGLY event; but he also opted
            for 3x the amount.
            Carry lots of ammo:
