I needed some fmj. 40 S&W ammo to qualify tomorrow. I went to Kinseys, the handgun ammo shelves were pretty bare. They had a couple of boxes of 20 hollow point .40 S&W but no fmj. They also had a 3 box limit on ammo. I left and went to the trop, their shelves weren't much better than Kinseys and they had a 2 box limit. I found two boxes of 50 fmj , the last two on the shelf and bought both, if there had been more I would have bought more. This hoarding of ammo is good for the manufacturers but it stinks for gun owners.

It is tough...22 ammo is surprisingly the worst from what I've seen....


I saw guys standing by the ammo shelf at Walmart last week...I walked by...saw it was empty so I kept walking...one guy was at the counter buying an AR..

Continued my shopping and saw lots of mark downs....I went back thinking maybe guns were marked down...I better look! I go back...sales person gone...no one in line etc...but those guys were still standing by the ammo! My best guess is they were waiting for ammo! I've worked at Walmart... I know stock doesn't hit shelves till 9-11pm at about the earliest....it was 4-5 pm when I was there! Just crazy!


If the hoarding would stop supplies would go back to normal.....but I guess if you can buy a brick of 22 ammo for 20$ at Walmart and sell it for 100$ on gun broker and can buy 3 bricks each trip...well you'd be doing alright!

Thanks much for the offer, I qualified today, I needed 50 rds for that and I found 2 boxes of 50fmj and bought both. I will be checking the stores periodically and stocking up a little. Thanks for your generous offer.
