Like all of you I’ve been watching the news lately and just ran across an interesting article about how Walmart is now rationing ammunition. You can now only buy three boxes per person per day of your favorite rounds of ammo. If they have it.
I was in a hardware store last weekend and out of curiosity asked the guy behind the counter if he had any .223 ammo. He laughed. Seriously.
They didn’t have any .40 caliber ammo either, which is what I was interested in. So not only are gun sales now going through the roof, but ammunition is getting very scarce – at least around here where I live. I kick myself that I didn’t stock up on more ammo, but hey – it is what it is.
Pretty soon ammo will be worth as much as gold! I can hear it now, “Yeah, I’ll trade ya two boxes of .223 for an ounce of gold. What? You don’t like my prices? Well move aside mister ’cause there’s a bunch of people behind you willing to cough it up pal.” Or something like that.
Anyway, as is true in situations like this whatever is in high demand will start to cost more. Guns. Bullets. The law of supply and demand is an evil god, but one we must live with.
I just hope that pretty soon this whole mess just goes away and gun owners can fade back into obscurity. I know. I know! Keep wishing right?
How is it where you live?
Let’s see if we can get every state to chip in with a guns and ammo report. How cool is that? Is ammo hard to get where you live? Guns?
