What caliber of gun to buy...

What caliber of gun to buy…

I have read a lot of articles about the ammo shortage.  Some on the internet, some in glossy gun magazines.  Lots of people claim to be able to explain the situation, but no one seems to be able to point to any proof that they are right.

2 weekends back I went to a major dealer in CT to see what ammo they had.

Pallets, literally, of .40S&W, .45acp, .223 and .380.  Enough hunting ammo to keep people’s rifles sighted in.  A little .38.  A single countertop display of match .22 for $12.99/50 rounds.  And no 9mm at all.

I personally bought a Ruger SR22 many months ago to address the lack of 9mm, but now there is no .22 to be had!  My .40 and .45 guns are getting more frequent workouts because I can replace any ammo I use in them.

If all you have are 9mm and .22 caliber guns, you’re pretty much out of luck.  At what point do you step up and buy a new gun in a caliber that you can feed?

    I recently got 5,000 rounds of .22LR from the CMP. $305 plus shipping total about $330. In North Texas I can find everything including 9mm. But not .22LR. I had my order in a long time to get the .22LR Aguila.

    Where do you find oodles of .380? In the Pacific Northwest, .380 is very hard to find.
