    It's pretty nice
    If I only shot once a month I would need at least 500 rds. I shoot 250-300 rds. at least once, sometimes twice weekly. All centerfire from handguns.

    I visited Cabela's yesterday. They had a significant inventory of handgun ammo including both range and defense ammo. Pricing was normal, not inflated at all. While reviewing my personal inventory in my head I was interrupted by a fellow customer stating that I should "buy every round I can afford" while it is available. My response was that if we only buy what we really need the odds of ammo being available next time we shop is much greater. He went on to say that he had purchased 2500 rounds of ammo for each weapon he owns when the shortage first began. He went on to say that he still has almost every round gathering dust in his garage.

    I believe this is an excellent example how the shortage has been perpetuated. If the hoarders would back off and only purchase what they need on a monthly basis there would likely be enough ammo to go around.

    My two cents worth.

    I keep two stashes one I shoot, and one I do not shoot(mostly expensive HD ammo, primo .223 loads). Every week I add a little to both stashes.

    When I go shooting I replenish what I shoot, now there is plenty of .223, 9mm, and .45 acp available. .22 lr on the other hand is a thing of the past.
