Bullets lately? I can't find any anywhere for .22 or my .40 cal. The government may not be able to take our guns but they sure as hell took our ammunition. Its a good thing we reload our bullets for hunting or i would be really pissed
I always wait til Gary's in Columbus has an ammo sale. Then I buy a little bit of everything. But, yes, you can't hardly find anything small caliber right now. It's crazy that you can't go to Wal-Mart and buy a brick anymore.
We haven't had any ammunition at my walmart since November. I been on the internet tryin to find some for my pistol and can't find any. I found a box of 500 .22 bullets for $100 but ain't no damn way i would pay that for .22 bullets
You can buy 5 boxes of .22LR at a time at Gary's in West Point or Columbus locations. They also have pistol ammo and it is a two box limit. Kinda expensive now, but you can blame that on ObamaDrama because we never had a problem before now. In fact, this whole situation is ridiculous. This administration is a Buzzkill. Hope everyone is enjoying the $3.70 gas too. Hail to the Chief.

You can't find ammo, and in many cases you can't find guns or gun parts. I attribute a lot of this to increased sales over panic that this government is trying to ban a large portion of the guns currently legal to purchase. Just come and try to take mine.
It is all related to increased sales since the reelection of obama and the sandy hook gun control discussions.
Since obama has been elected, over 65 million guns have been sold.
The shortage is simply demand is 10x greater than supply right now. Most companies are back ordered until 2015.
That being said... this country is more armed and ready now than it has even been. This isnt a preparation for hunting or recreation. This is a prepartion for war.
The word i have gotten is the government won't let the ammunition companies make as much as the were. This has been goin on since November. People keep sayin you can't take my guns yes that's true but they are doin the next best thing. Taking away the bullets
EVERYONE has tried to buy bullets lately. I go almost daily. I've been able to pick up an few boxes here and there but I haven't seen a .22 long rifle round in a very long time. I can't find any ammo for my AK-47. Try buying a handgun. It's almost as bad. I wanted a new Sig Sauer and ended up having to sign up for e-mail alerts on several web pages. I got an e-mail early one morning from Gunbroker and logged in and hit the "Buy Now" button. The bidding has gotten outrageous. People are paying $700 for $400 guns.
So very true. I'm not buying ammo for hunting.
Its supply and demand. I ordered pmags and they came three months later. There are lines at the stores down here waiting for ammo deliveries everyday.
The government wouldnt prevent ammo production without hell from ammo companies. Capitalism
If you can get to an Academy Sports, they have .22lr boxes of 525 being delivered on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays. Priced at $18.99. They open doors here in Jackson at 8:00 am. The line starts forming at 7:15. One box per customer. Biggest load on Mondays.
.40 surprisingly is getting back out there. Went to Bass Pro last night they had plenty.
I volunteer at a new gunsmith in Ridgeland. We try to put what we get on the shelves and price normal. FragoArms if you are around here. Getting guns and pricing AR's almost normal. Sent all but 2 to gunshow this weekend and sold them all. Sold one Saturday in store for $1250. Have more coming.
Bass Pro is getting AR's and starting at $799 for DPMS.
Lots of price gouging going on. Get online on MidwayUSA and others. They will send notification email when they get what you select in stock, but you gotta be quick!!
We gave a fellow 2 gen 3 pmags Saturday when he purchased AR. We are getting plenty at FragoArms in Ridgeland on HWY 51. In small strip mall on the South side of Advanced Auto Parts. We have no sign up yet. I worked Saturday and headed back after while. I'll know of what stock we have when I get there. I know we sold out at show this weekend(AR's, pistols and shotguns) sold one of two in store. The other is a consignment priced way to high. I wouldn't buy that one.
You need AK ammo? I got 17 or 18 boxes at store in Ridgeland! Pm me if you are interested...
Van's Deer Processing had some .40 caliber the last time I was in there (about a week or so ago). No 22 LR though. I called them yesterday. Gander Mountain in Hattiesburg had a pretty good selection .40 caliber and other pistol ammo Sunday when I stopped in. But no 22 LR ammo either.
You got that right! I know the govt ordered plenty .40 for I think 5 year contracts at whatever the total is. I bought quit a bit in the beginning and stopped firing my .40 altogether. I just found a die set so I can load them. Fortunately, I have been seeing them pop up more lately. BassPro in Pearl has a good stock right now...
Have you guys been paying attention to HB-2? The Governor signed it the other day and it goes into effect July 1st of this year. This clearly defines concealed carry from open carry. You will be able to openly carry a firearm in Mississippi without getting into that grey area where some considered a holster to "partially conceal" the firearm. You do not need any type of permit to open carry. You will still need a permit to conceal carry but once the bill goes into effect, if your gun becomes visible somehow from your shirt riding up or whatever, you will still be legal.
Anyone looking for .22 online add this to your browser and watch regularly: http://tachedout.org/ammo.html When any .22 lr from any of the listed retailers pop up in stock it doesn't last long...
Yes! Isn't that great! Glad to be a Mississippian...
I'm so proud of our state govt. for clearing this issue up.
It's not they are limiting production, it's that Homeland security is buying up all the ammo. That's concerning to me because why have they suddenly increased the amount of ammo they're stockpiling? Not trying to sound like a conspiracy nut, but they aren't stockpiling ammo to keep it out of the consumers hands.
