    Anyone have any luck with finding more ammo on the shelves? I was reading in a different area where some people are finding more ammo back on the shelves, but none of them were in Florida. I was just wondering if we are seeing an increase, too.

    As for me, the shelves around here are still empty.

    Both Wal-Marts in my local area (Jupiter and Stuart) have been totally wiped out every time I've been there. Only a few boxes of .22, some shotgun shells, and a couple boxes of rifle ammo. And a sign stating a "3 box limit" per person

    Trekgod3, what size boxes of .22 and at what price are you seeing? There are NO .22s on the shelves at the Walmarts up here (not that I've seen, anyway).

    bought all 3 boxes of 40s&w value packs on the shelf at the wauchula walmart.

    near my house in land o lakes, they had 12ga 100rd packs, unfortunately they sold out before i could get there.

    the price had gone up about a buck each

    I called 10 walmarts within a 50 mile radius. Nada zip.

    This is off topic but I find it funny that the on-line sources I am seeing are selling 1000 rounds of 45 cheaper than 9mm.

    When I was in Bass Pro in Myrtle Beach last week the shelves of pistol ammo were bare, just a sticker for each missing box that said "on order". I was looking for 9mm for target shooting, no luck.

    Sorry, I didn't pay attention to the type of ammo. I believe some of it might have been .17 caliber,too.

    I went to Gander in PBG and they have TONS of 9mm, .40 and .45ACP......HOWEVER the lowest price for any of it was $29.99 for a 50 round box. At those prices, I'll pass. Everything ranged from $30 to $50 for a 50 round box.

    I see plenty of shot gun shells but that's about it. I haven't seen any 40s&w in about 3 weeks.

    I've had zero problem getting ammo on-line, especially 10mm.

    It has all but dried up for now. Our government has a really big stock pile so I hear.

    I went to Alachua Farm & Lumber and found a good supply of ammo in stock. Prices were fairly reasonable for the times, too. Paid $17/box of 9mm 50ct target rounds. Picked up a box of .25 for a friend at $23/box of 50. (Glad I don't own a .25. Too expensive for a crappy little round.)

    LGS have better supply here but prices are higher than Walmart of course. Some dealers are instituting a limit/customer.

    LGS by me is selling 9mm.fmj for $38.99 a box of 50. I bought a box of 45auto for $27.99. Gave the 9 mm a pass. Got a good laugh out of it. Done buying from them.
