As many of you have no doubt experienced; ammo in many places is in short supply these days. The following are the reasons why.
- 2 billion rounds have been purchased by the government; in many instances by departments that one would not normally expect to be stockpiling ammunition.
- Panic buying is happening by law abiding consumers; as they try and get ammo before it is either banned, restricted or subject to high taxation.
- Demand is currently outpacing supply; which is why as soon as certain calibers of ammo hit the store shelves they are sold out almost immediately.
This is an important lesson in why ammo; like other commodities should be stocked up on using a preparedness philosophy. If you stock up on any necessary commodity when times are good and supplies are plentiful; you won’t be scrounging and scrambling when times are not so good and supplies are scarce. Good luck and stock up wisely and safely :)
