Rusty, the people who have ammunition supplies on hand are generally not the ones who have caused the mad rush on ammunition right now. Most people who have acquired ammunition have done so over a period of time in small quantities at a time. They never caused a huge surge in the market while acquiring their ammunition. This latest surge is from individuals who are panic buying. So many new people into buying new weapons and they are buying ammo for those weapons. Not at stockpile ammo amounts, but they are buying ammo for all of the newly sold weapons on the market. This is an unprecedented rush on new firearms sales the like never seen before in history. This rush on weapons alone and the need for ammunition has depleted the market. Granted some have purchased to hoard, but the major reason for this are the suddenly new weapons owners or those who purchased more weapons and needed ammo for them. These sheer number of new weapons sales has gobbled up ammo civilian ammo supplies. I know of many many avid shooters who have not purchased a single magazine or box of ammo since this mad rush began. I would be inclined to think that is true in many places across the nation. One lesson to learn here is that once the panic dies down and things start returning to normal, is that enthusiasts who do a lot of shooting should slowly start accumulating supplies of ammunition and parts in order to weather these types of panic situations, which are not going to go away.
