    Midway had one item available out of about 30, double tap 95 grain, 34.99/bx.

    Look at able ammo, Grafs, Natchz......It's a tough market out there. People are buying 500 bucks worth off the store shelves and carting it out.

    Just about anything in "personal defense" and/or military calibers is extremely tough to get. We get a case of 9s and they're gone in hours. Same with 38/357, 45 acp, 223 (can get Wolf), 7.62X39, and so on. Some shipments only have five or so boxes of each. Primers the same other than shotshells which we can get.

    People are hoarding. Smart ones are reloading. Save that brass...it may get tougher yet.

    "Smart ones are reloading".... Yep, If you can find the primers and components. That's as tough right now as finding the loaded ammo for a 380.

    Georgia Arms Out of stock due to component shortage.

    Afraid to practice, as there is no way to replace the rounds I might use.

    Don't know what to trust, are we going to see ammo prices going like lead market in the past year?

    Do you know someone has few thousand pounds of shots in his garage that he bought it @$55 per bag?

    We got in 5 boxes of 380's today. Pistol ammo is being allocated from the big distributors. We spend $500,000.00 on ammo a year and can't get any. I've been able to keep 38's, 40's and 9MM so far. The cheap stuff sells out as fast as you can get it. Wish I could get some cases of Wolf 223. Jackie B.

    I figure ammo will bubble, like shot, and come back down.

    I was looking at the new Magnum Research .380 at a local gun store two weeks ago and noticed they had ten 50-round boxes of Serbian .380 ammo on their low cost/remanufactured shelf. All ten were gone when I returned the next day.

    I try not to put myself in a panic situation, because I don't panic very well.

    I buy whatever I need, never look at someone else's panic list.

    I think I have enough ammo for the next riot. Last time I bought pistol ammo was under $15 a box, shotshell under $5 & shots @$22.

    One manufacturer said the .380 is made on the same machines they use for 9mm and they're just making 9mm these days and trying to catch up on backorders.

    A local shop was the "2008 Winchester Ammunition National Dealer of the Year" and they didn't have any .380 out on the shelf either. They did have cases of American Eagle 9mm.

    I'm starting to see more and more ammo for sale, but the prices are never going back to what they were.

    I have a few cases I will let go for $50 a box. At a 500% markup who could resist. I will just have to shoot reloads.
