    Have you been living under a rock? Haha, couldn't resist. But seriously just turn on your tv.

      Panic buying and hoarding. I just watched a video on the production of .22 ammo at the CCI plant. Ready for this, they make 4 million rounds a day. Somebody is buying a lot of ammo.
      Anybody have any stock in a gun or ammo companie should have a nice gain in value.

        Lot of people doing a lot of unnecessary buying. Some hear there's a shortage and go looking to buy some even though they don't need it.

          More demand than supply. Econ 101.

                WAM's right. Everytime I say it I get a bunch of -1s but he's absolutely right! I went to the local gun store a week ago; there were over sixty people in a lottery to by the four (4) ARs the store had! I've now seen everything!

                  Panic buying is one cause, but so is the inevitable price increase.

                    Safado- by the sounds of it, your local gun store owner is too smart of a business man to be caught making a deal with. Auctioning off the rights to purchase something for probably near double it's original value... Ingenious...

                        22 LR has always been a good deal. Its so inexpensive people can hoard it easily even on a limited budget.

                          My local Gander Mountain store has a good variety of .22LR ammo in stock, but no CCI Green Label ammo, which is what I want. I can wait until the panic subsides.

                            99explorer - I have 100 rounds of CCI Green Tag...perhaps we can make a trade because in my neck of the woods I can't find any high velocity rounds.

                              Zombies.- Seriously. It is the preferred bullet for people who go to the range to practice their Zombie shooting skills. Rem 36grain JHP is starting to show up. Just picked a box yesterday.
