I guess if you boil it down, the 2020 Ammo Shortage is caused by LIES.
I disagree Slippy. Just like the Obama ammo shortage, this one was caused by US (gun owners). We panic buy and the supply can't keep up. Honest self assessment: how many rounds do you have at home? Me, personally, probably 10,000-ish with components for 8-10K more. Since I don't competition shoot anymore, this is excessive, but I don't care. I bought most of this when timess were good and I'm sitting on it now. Too busy to shoot with the new house projects.

Honestly, I'm flabbergasted it has lasted this long. Makes the Obama ammo panic or the Clinton ammo panic look mild in comparison, but given the political climate, the virus and the riots, I'm not really surprised.

WE don't panic buy. The uneducated & unprepared sheeple do.

If you keep your supply inside your house, you obviously don't have enough.
Mine's out in the barn, except for a few hundred rounds.
21 calibers and gauges. Some only 400 or 500, some in the thousands. Like the great deal I got on the 1954 Bulgarian military surplus 7.62X54R for my Mosin Nagants. Or the Chinese 7.62X39. Steel core, can't get it anymore, good stuff.

@jeffh

That was my point! The media and the government lies about various events have created a sheeple event of panic buying of firearms and ammo. Had the media and the government been truthful, we would not be in this situation.

Pretty sure we all saw the riots in MN. Which got the sheep all in a panic.

Called my local guy who sells reloading supplies. He has Federal gold medal match small rifle primers in stock! At $50 per thousand, I’ll pass. The lady told me to keep checking back as they are still receiving occasional shipments of primers on a hit or miss basis. I’ll keep checking weekly and maybe I’ll get lucky.

A year from now you may be kicking yourself for passing.
If the government can control the ammo and also the parts to make it they do not have to bother with the 2nd Amendment.

Yes, I am a dummy. Freely admitted. I've more ammo than that, but only a handgun and shotgun. You live and you learn, I 'spose.
All I have is a Red Ryder Lever Action Carbine BB gun.
I've been wanting one since I was a kid, finally got it for Christmas!
It's all I need for up here; I can shoot somebody's eye out. :tango_face_grin:

Unprepared-yes. Uneducated- maybe not so much anymore. With all of the cities that have decided to defund police and states/cities that let rioters burn cities without consequences, many people have come to the realization that ultimately THEY are responsible for the security of their homes and family, and have decided that owning a firearm is a very good idea, and allot of ammo to go with said firearm.

On one hand I've always felt that the more lawful gun owners the better, on the other hand I've always felt that they should be well trained in handling them. One good thing about this is about this time next year the market should be flooded with used but seldom fired guns.
