Ammo shortage isn't doing anything to traffic at my local range

    Wife and I went to local free gun range yesterday...

    Due to extreme local ammo scarcity, we expected regulars only.

    Wrong... there were a bunch of new shooters, with newly purchased firearms there.

    I'm wondering where their ammo is from... its dead scarce here. Unless they were shooting expensive hollow points at nearly $1/round.

    Isn't it logical that at some point the ammo shortage should clear the range of all these newbies?

    The reason this is a big deal to me, is that my wife doesn't go if its busy. We saw a lady a few months ago that didn't understand what "range clear" meant and started shooting while people were downrange retrieving targets.

    Lots of folks ( newbies) think they can only shoot the expensive sd stuff
    They leave the brass, so no complaints here
