I happened to stop by the Walmart near work and found nothing I had use for. I drove the half hour home and almost didn't stop at the one in my town because we get less, less often, but last second I did. I was pleased to see .223! There was a whopping 4 boxes of tulammo .223 at 4.97/20. I also picked up 3 boxes of tulammo 9mm, 1 .40 cal, a box of federal .40, and a federal value pack of .40. Needless to say I felt lucky even grabbing two boxes of .22 bulk ammo, much less 430 rounds of stuff I was looking for.

So, of course, laying in bed, I started wondering if the Walmart near work got a truck in too. I check the website and it says they have .223 in stock... I called and they couldn't find it, but I drove back anyways and picked up another 880 rounds of .223 (all they had) and a Remington.UMC 250 round box of 9mm. Way to start off the new years, finding ammo in stock. I just used up all my spending money for the month basically, but I feel the way things are these days, it was $450 well spent.

I was that lucky son of a gun for once! And I liked it. Hopefully things go the same way for you and yours!

Ammo won't be much good if they take your gun. Spend less money and write more letters. Or better yet take that extra spending money and drive to Washington and picket for your rights.

But your guns probably were lost in a fishing trip......right.

No, people freak out because they're nervous worryworts. A lot of folks don't freak out because they're not.

Okay, there's an ammo shortage. One guy buys all 10 boxes - or maybe 10 guys buy one box - and customers 11 through 999 still aren't getting any ammo that week at Walmart because there is still an ammo shortage.

My mother never promised me that all my wants and needs would be fulfilled. She did teach me to plan ahead.

Good on ya, at least you have some range ammo. I've never felt bad buying the last brick of .22 that they had or the last box of .45 so I'm not sure why the haters here. If they only had one brick of .22 or one box of 9mm would these guys offer to only buy half?

I guess you could have left some 223 for the next guy to buy and gouge on Gunbroker.

In what has been discussed so far, I have taken the position that prices are going to drop because demand has dropped....

My point is that with the Military consuming vastly lowered ammounts of small arms ammunition, the "demand" is lower, so the supply will be higher and prices should drop.

I am well aware that Russ is a moderator.

And you're right about what I said a few months ago. I did expect the price of ammo to go down, just as I most certainly do right at this very moment.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't have a crystal ball to tell the future, so I didn't know 20 6 & 7 year olds were going to be massacred by a nut-job with a Bushmaster.

There was a time, a little while ago, when GTers were calling Wal-Mart, asking what time trucks carrying ammo would arrive. Armed with that knowledge, they trekked over to that store and waited until the boxes were brought to the floor. They bought what they needed. Sometimes that meant everything was purchased in a few minutes.

There was no hue and cry [yes, I know that's redundant] from other members. No, they themselves began calling for truck arrival information, too.

Prices did increase as demand rose. I believe that how it is suppose to go. Those who bought early, they paid less. Those who bought later paid more.

Eventually, equilibrium returned, prices dropped again and those who had not purchased at the top enjoyed the lower prices, topping off their supplies, even emptying store shelves at the lower price.

Empty shelves indicated higher demand...well, you know the cycle now.

There are those who buy low. There are those who buy when prices start going up. There are those who buy at the top. There are those who wait for lower prices.

The market place needs all types.

Throw in external, artificial stimulations, like a possible interruption or termination of a supply flow, and everyone gets into the buying mode. Some in a small way, some go all out - just in case.

Now M&P, and I imagine there are others like him, they're the ones who have all the supply they want. M&P sees no sense whatsoever in the rest of the market participants resupplying, topping off, or establishing a higher level of supply during this period of artificial stimulation. They should not take advantage of the available supply. It drives prices up. That's not fair to others in the market.

Oh, well...but, that's life in the free market.

Glad you found some .223.

Now, let that be a lesson and in the future put aside a year or two's worth of ammo when you can. It doesn't go bad and chances are it will cost less when you buy it than in the future.


So, you feel good screwing your fellow shooters, and contributing to spreading the panic buying?

Oh....well then.....good for you.
He is screwing No one.

What's he supposed to do, say, "Oh I won't buy that ammo because someone else that didn't plan ahead might need it".

Yesterday I bought 8 cans of powder and a bunch of primers to add to the stash. We know there will be a shortage of powder and primers. So what am I supposed to do? Not buy the powder because there are people that are going to be crying because they didn't stock up before the shortage.

That's silly.

Yet you still feel compelled to tell people (who are far better informed) what is going to happen as if you knew what you are talking about:

The State of Virginia, is in no way, shape or form, holding up his purchase. No one with the State of Virginia is holding up his purchse.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation/NICS is the agency that is putting his purchase on hold.

M&P just because you bought your ammo when the supply was better doesn't make it any different from the original poster. If you didn't by so much months ago maybe there would be more now. I doubt it but like when you find something you need on sale or in a good quantity or that isn't always available you buy it. Simple as that.

01-01-2013, 08:14
All I can tell everyone is even though .223 ammo is scarce and the demand has increased by 200% prices, in normal places anyway not CTD, are stable. I work at Cabelas, our prices have not changed. AR's are still shipping. Everyone just needs to calm down. There's no ban yet, and I believe it'll take some time before there is. Buy what ya want, sell what ya want, just try not to price gouge each other. That's how we hurt our own cause.

You need to go back and read the thread again. Chute's one post on the topic was spot on and correct regarding VSP and the demands on it.The problem is that people who don't know what they are talking about insist on attempting to correct those who do know what they are talking about.

I was stocked up well before Sandy Hook. I was piling up ammo during October when it looked like Romney could take the win. I've been acquiring ammo for years.

That being said, it is up to me to protect myself and mine. NO ONE is looking out for me but me. One of my primary responsibilities is to assess WHAT I need, WHEN I need it. If, for WHATEVER reason, I figured my ammo supplies were inadequate during a panic, I would be buying every last cartridge if I thought that's what I would need.

I admitted in that thread that I was completely incorrect. Virginia does a different type of back-ground check than I had heard of. It doesn't use NICS as it's primary point of check.

If Chute did know that, he didn't share that information, or he didn't know it. Since 30 out of 50 states use NICS, it's a topic that is sure to be confusing. I myself thought that NICS was used throughout the country.

I've been active in Virginia gun rights since before the VCDL sprang out of the NVCDL, you certainly haven't.

I've seen the VSP work the phones and their laptops in Richmond during a gunshow, they were kept quite busy.

I remember when it cost $11, instead of $2.

I wouldn't be surprised if you have NEVER purchased a gun in Virginia, and NEVER even shot a gun in Virginia. Am I wrong?

Do not see any problem. The OP was in the right place at the right time. His choice to pay or not. I did not notice in the post if the cost was above average or not. Does not matter. He chose to get it now. For my part I have on order 90 magazines for 5 callibers and 9 guns and a couple hundred rounds of ammo in each calliber as a small buffer. Panic....no. Prudent ordering. I ordered early and at regular prices. No over paying from me. I also added a few magazines for friends I know would sit on the fence to long before they ordered. Have recieved about 20% so far and have tracking for about another 10%. The rest...who knows ? My needs and any close friends are taken care of at regular prices.

correct. I have never purchased or shot a gun in this state. I have recently moved here from michigan, and the two states are clearly different. What you could have done was explain all of that, because i was not the only person posting in that thread that had no clue that va did their own back-ground checks.

Instead, in a very trollish manner, you decided not to share your information. You decided it was more important for you to be correct, and everyone else in that thread (other than the op) to be wrong, than to exlpain to everyone that va did things very differently from other states.

I guess a wannabe who doesn't shoot much doesn't really need that much ammo.

Who needs to practice to hone their skills ... but the alternative, spray and pray, is ammo intensive as well

:whistling:I know of a few people, three actually, who do not shoot often, yet they buy additional ammo when they find good buys.

One is waiting for the zombies :whistling:. The other two like sale prices. One has tools he'll never use.

Wow. Some of you are harsh. How can you fault a guy for seein some ammo on a shelf in a store and buyin it?
I don't get into the panic buying because I already have the stuff that I want and I reload. But if I saw some guns or ammo that I wanted I would buy them.

If he has the money and feels it's worth it to him, so be it.

Wait, are you comparing arming and provisioning for the worlds most powerful army to (NOT directed at OP) some fat guy in the middle of nowhere building up a supply for an event that will likely never happen much less happen in his backwoods part of America? :dunno:Nah.

More the fact that someone somewhere is buying a whole lot of ammunition, not giving a rat's patootie about the impact it may or may not have on civilians who are now also buying similar ammo. Or trying to when they can find it. Also the association that in so doing... are they "screwing it up for other buyers who now find empty shelves" as a result... or words to that effect.

Uncle Sam keeps Lake City, just east of my old hometown, quite busy.

I'm good with it all. Those who empty shelves, even those who fling poo across the 'net. Their choice. You can NEVER have too much ammo on hand. But why the DHS needs 1.6 billion rounds of .40 for "practice" still kinda amazes me. Das a lot of "practice" w/ JHP (but that's another thread/topic unto itself)

But thanks for asking SixDB. Have a Happy New Year all. Buy it cheap (relative term nowadays) and stack it deep.

Oh the tardishness of collectivist thinking, where everything is viewed as a zero sum game and buying what you need is viewed as harming others.

Since he is buying it to keep and shoot; good on the OP.

If he was buying to flip. I would be less congratulatory. However, I would not begrudge up doing it as long as it was not the Walmart near me;)

Back to topic...glad the OP found some ammo and bought it. personally, I have plenty but if I walked into a Wally World and there was some on the shelf, I would have bought it as well. That's what the hell it's there for and you really can't have too much ammo.

The fact is, I go through that much ammo in a few range sessions when I take my little brothers out with me. I haven't been able to take them out because it's been hard finding ammo and I don't want to burn up everything I have. I didn't buy ten thousand rounds of .223 to resell for a profit. Everybody always finds something to cry about. Shop at Walmart and you're a commie, shop somewhere unionized, you're a commie. It's the only place with ammo, so be it.

I have indeed sent a letter to all of my representatives, as well as emailed them. I did that mere days after sandy hook.

I was that lucky guy that got to stock a few range rounds last night. I'm in my early twenties so I haven't had the time others have to build up. And no, I haven't bought any thirty dollar pmags either.

Good for you. Now is as good a time as any to buy some ammo if you didn't already. I don't think it's gonna get any easier or cheaper anytime soon (let's hope i'm wrong)

I was caught off guard in 2008 and learned from it. Lucky to have got a second chance. I now have a about 6,000+ rds of factory range/PP .45 acp rounds. Everything is almost double the price what I paid. Been trading some of it off to a buddy of mine for 9mm which is sold out around here.

I bought all the white box value packs they had. I burn through that stuff like there is no tomorrow. I bet I eat up at least 1k a year bteween two pistols. It used to be I could go collect 400 rounds at a whack. The panic buyers were snatching them all up. I managed to get 300 only this time. I think I have about 500 rounds of fmj 9mm atm. I would have gotten more if they had more.

I will check back now and again and see if they have more from time to time. As far as .223, I am good, and have no desire to acquire more atm. 7.62x39 almost as good.

I shoot the 9mm pistols more than any other.

Are you the dude with the cry-baby picture? Could I borrow it for a sec? :rofl:

They are the same people that rape the local grocery store for batteries and bottled water when there is a hurricane warning.

They will never have what they need because they only panic buy and never truly prepare. (And no you don't have to be a Doomsday Prepper)

If anybody is interested I am looking to trade my PSA AR-15 with 2 P-Mags for a Stradivarius violin in mint condition. I also will trade 10 P-Mags even up for a 2010 or newer pick up truck with V8:whistling:

Although I'd love to see this end soon, I won't be surprised if this lasts as long as the 2009 shortage. There are a lot of new gun owners, and many of them fire 5.56/.223. If they are scrambling to buy their 200 rounds, then maybe this will be short-lived. Otherwise... we could be in for a rough ride.

And...
Can we be reasonably sure that the president won't do something about ammo by executive order or through some kind of policy move? That's the kind of possibility that can fuel a panic.
