The price of his store's ammunition has more than doubled since mid-December, says Larry Hyatt, owner of Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte, N.C., which bills itself "America's Largest Gun Shop."

I spoke to Mr. Hyatt today about the increase in the price of ammunition since mid-December (when the gun control debate began to heat up). Hyatt said that the ammo market is "very volatile" and that he "doesn't know when the next shipment will be."

His best seller right now is .22LR caliber. Gun owners like to shoot this caliber because it is typically a cheaper round and also optimal for target shooting, known as "plinking"

A box containing 500 rounds of .22LR was selling for approximately $20/box back in December. Today, Mr. Hyatt tells me he is selling the same box for $49. This represents a 145 percent increase in price....

I stopped in at walmart last night to get my wife some stuff after work and I swung over by the ammo section and they had just gotten in some 22lr winchester bulk packs. But some old guy was buying the last three, I asked if he would leave me one and he told me to go buzz off. Nice, I love what the ammo shortage has done....

That clown at Walmart who told you to Buzz Off should have received a managers escort to the front door with no ammo..That is disorderly conduct or harassment..

I bought a brick of 22lr at the sports show in Altoona yesterday from J & D Guns (East Coast) for 34.95 (at least I think that was the exact price).
