    I stopped at my local sporting goods store for some bobbers and fishing supplies, checked the guns and ammo like I always do.

    THE AMMO IS FULLY STOCKED! :eek:

    The gun case is FULL. What's going on???? I am kind of shocked, as I discovered the elusive .380s right there on the shelf--a whole case of them. There were hundreds of bricks of .22s in two brands. All the calibers that have been missing for six months are suddenly there!

    The guy said that they've always had a decent supply of ammo these past months, but that's not what I have seen! I've walked in and back out again numerous times with nothing.

    Yes, lots of .45s in there--five different brands!

    I noticed that the black guns are filling the shelves again at my normal gun shops. Also, ammo is becoming more plentiful. The stockpiling and panic buying seems to be slowing.

    Funny thing, we didn't have a shortage here, and only one place to buy it in town.

    After I got my last batch of ammo all of it dissapeared for 2-3 months thwn got stocked back up again. I think it might actualy be ending.

    I bought 200 rounds, enough for concealed carry class if I ever get my gun back from Smith & Wesson........

    P.S. The price was the same as it was back in November, too.

    Ammo is still a bit thin around here, but quite as bad as it was. I have noticed that gun prices are going back down fairly rapidly and the numbers of ARs and AKs are going back up. Maybe the "shortage" is easing.
