I had to go down to Bi Mart to get some drain cleaner, we have a couple of sinks that are getting unacceptably slow.
While I was strolling around, I stopped by the sporting goods section.
Holy shit did they have some empty shelves.
Just for shits and grins I started looking for some .22 shells. I have been hearing about ammo shortages and wanted to see for myself.
Not much of anything really ammo wise. I did find a box of an off size for the rifle my Grandfather bought he used to deer hunt with.
Some other dude came up and started asking about availability and the kid said they get ammo shipments on Wednesday, Friday and Monday.
Forget .223, they have no idea when some of that is going to be available.
Anything else, he said you had better be here when they unload the truck because it doesn’t even make it to the shelf anymore.
They didn’t even have .22 shorts which are getting hard to find anyway but normally just sit on the shelf because hardly anyone still has one it seems.
Normally bigger outfits buy that shit by the pallet load.
When a guy can’t find a stupid little 50 round box of .22 shells anywhere, there’s your sign.
There is officially an ammo shortage.
