    OK, so in as little as two weeks, the price for a box of 9mm has gone up almost $7.00 at Dick's Sporting Goods. (When they have it in stock that is).The guy at the counter tells me as soon as a shipment comes it, 3 to 5 people will pop in and buy what they have on the shelves..their entire stock!! Anyone else running into this issue locally and does anyone have any idea what the heck is going on as to why ammo is in such high demand? Should we start a co-op on the OC forum because at this rate I'm going to end up with guns and no bullets! Anyone know how Wal-mart is holding up on ammo supplies?

    I just got back from WalMart. I bought some 9MM ammo and they had plenty left after.

    Hollow points are a little bit more, obviously..

    Every time I go into a Walmart for the past month or so I look at the ammo even if I am not buying. I only really look at .380 ACP and shotgun shells. So far they have always had .380 in the store and the price has not changed. One of the stores had ran out of 12 gauge shotgun slugs a week ago.

    I think it's just a local fear of scarcity. I just ordered a couple cases of ammo from cheaper than dirt and supplies seems to be about normal.

    They actually have a lot of ammo that says back ordered. I was on the site yesterday looking at prices.

    Actually, just went to Young Guns in Apex. Great store.

    500 rounds of Wolf 9mm 115gr FMJ for $95 + tax. Plenty of various rounds in stock.
