Gun Shops Rationing Ammo: 'We Have Police Departments that are Scrambling'

Via avordvet

Gun shops across the country are reporting ammunition shortages as many Americans continue to stock up on whatever they can get their hands on.

Jeff Dillard, who runs National Armory in Pompano, Florida says, "I have never seen ammo so impossible to get."

Bruce A. Pelletier, owner of Pelletier's Sports in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, says in his forty-four years in business, he's never seen the shortage this bad.

"Customers have been buying it all at once. We've been at the point to limiting it to one or two boxes per person, so at least that more than one of our customers can have some."

At Sam's Outdoor Outfitters, which has locations in both New Hampshire and Vermont, rationing isn't even an option.

"We haven't had any ammunition that we can limit," says owner Stanley Borofsky.

"People are calling on a daily basis...I've been here since 1957, and I've never seen the shortage this bad," he said.

Tyler Boucher of Highlander Arms in Chesterfield believes that the "prepper" movement and rumors of the government buying up large quantities has exacerbated the run on ammunition.

  1. Don't tell me about ammo shortages. Been dealing with it for months at the range!

  2. I like this quote from the article: Manufacturers, he says, "can't even keep up with making the cardboard boxes to put the ammo in."

    I've got boxes. If they want to fill them for me I'd be more than happy to take them to whichever company needs the break on making boxes.


  3. Man, I wish we had started an ammo company back 2010 instead of what we did. I'd be driving around in a Ferrari right now!
