    Sorry I thought I posted about it earlier.

    I was looking for a CZ P-01 but settled on a PCR. Pretty much the same pistol but without the rail.

    Ammo Prices are ridiculous. And I can't get reloading components. They're all sold out. Can't wait until this panic buying slows down, but with all the DEMOCRAT rioting going on, I don't see it slowing down in the foreseeable future

    Geez, $1.20/rnd for 9mm? That's higher than it's ever been i think and no components again, damn.

    I'm just loading .308 for a sig saur ssg 3000 right now, pretty low volume, 40 rnds per week just to stay in practice. Not shooting my F-class or benchrest rifles at all until components are available again. I use a lot of Varget, really happy i bought 8lbs on sale last year for $159,it was $195/8lbs when i checked last week, and they were out of stock

    I delivered a pallet of ammo to a store in Dickson Tn. They are getting 700 bucks for a case of 9mm.

    How much in a case? (different numbers for different companies)

    There was a gun show out here in August. Probably 1/4 the size of the Will Rogers show in Ft. Worth but it's still fun to go look. Remember going there as a kid and know a dozen or so of the regulars who have tables.
    Ammo prices were bad enough that they were looking sheepish and apologetic.
    "it's getting hard to come by" and "don't know if I'll be able to get any more when this is gone."
    I didn't give most of them any grief, since they were already embarrassed enough as it was.

    500 rnd. value packs of Winchester 9mm (that Academy had for 104$ + tax) were going for 300 to 350$

    1000 rnd. boxes of 5.56 SS109 green tips (that were less than 400$ shipped a few years ago) were going for 1000 to 1200$

    100 rnd. value packs of Winchester .380 (don't remember the pre-stupid cost) were going for 100 to 120$

    Police trade-in Beretta 92s in decent shape with 1 mag were around 500$

    Glock 17s and 19s were anywhere from 600$ to 900$ depending on which generation and how many mags.

    Scary thing is; people were actually buying at those prices.

    Guess they forgot what happened after 0'Vomit was elected and the big run on guns and ammo that caused.

    My son got a big insurance refund this week and plans on buying a pistol today if he can get a decent price. He has a buddy with a gun store (and a YouTube channel) who might can ease the pain some.

    $1000 Glock 19s are not unheard of out here, especially since they have to be gen 3

    Sad to say this is the WORST Possible time to acquire a gun ... selection or price wise ....

    And it's NOT the same thing as the Obama shortage. People are prepping for the rioters and Democrats to actually try to overthrow our nation. This is not panic buying because of gun control. This is panic buying because the Democrats are actively helping and promoting PURGE style lawlessness.

    Also 5 MILLION new gun owners since March. That has never happened before.

    Hmmm, i drove up to Payson (N. AZ) yesterday and the local gun shop was out of everything but FN pistols and one used kimber 1911 that was over priced, ammo was scarce. There were no price tags on the FN pistols

    I just checked Midway and they have the cheap winchester white box .223 for $700/ 1000

    Ammunition Makers Facing Massive Order Backlog, Shortage May Last Until 2021
    Bearing Arms reports that at least one Arizona ammunition manufacturer, the Scottsdale, Arizona, based Ammo Incorporated, is “facing an $80.1 million backlog amid record demand for ammunition.”
    “We’re working right now seven days a week, 24 hours a day in all the manufacturing plants,” the company’s CEO told media.

    That is why it may be necessary to reduce range time for the foreseeable future. Then, when the SHTF, we need to make every shot count.

    Agreed. However, if you shoot black powder, and can cast your own projectiles, and have plenty of caps/flints/ and powder, then you can still spend a lot of time at the range.

    Due to the after effects of COVOD-19, I still can't get out to the range yet to do some shooting. I have a .31 rifle I'm itching to run through its paces. Maybe in a few weeks....sigh.....

    That would be a good size for squirrels and the time is "now". The "tree-rats" around here are literally "going squirrely".

    If the SHTF to the point that we need to start shooting the bad guys, remember that they will be shooting back. We won't need "cases" of ammo. People on both sides will die. The lucky ones will last long enough to use a second loaded mag.

    I'm glad that I'm 63... if I buy the farm, it won't be a great loss. I've lived a full life.

    I don't WANT to buy the farm, but if I have to defend my country (or even my neighborhood), I will. I'll be scared shitless, but I will do it.

    Roger, you are a few years younger than I am so you aren't "over the hill" yet. Just get your adrenaline pumping with a righteous rage and indignation and you'll be OK.
    Remember the ancient Vikings? They had a group of warriors that were called "beserkers" that were almost unstoppable.
    Or think of one of those Clint Eastwood movies (Josey Wales??) where he said something about getting "mad dog mean".

    Agreed, the cause of this panic is different. The overall effect, however, is still the same.
    Problem right now is all the people buying up anything they can lay hands on to resell at gun shows for a ridiculous mark-up.
    That was another hallmark of the last panic, along with 1,500$ for a run of the mill / no frills Ar-15.

    Funny story: Heard a blurb on the radio earlier this year that there was a toilet paper shortage in major cities.
    My first thought? Food will be this next thing that people will start panic buying.
    Called Julie on the way home to see if she had heard the news: "Yea, already went through the panty and made a list."
    We loaded up on mac-n-cheese, canned ravioli and soup (all our kids favorites) plus salt, pepper and a big assortment of spices.
