    I went online to order some more 9mm brass 115 grain ammo today, and both of my mail-order suppliers have dried up. I was wondering if anyone has good info on this "shortage" and when it might be over.

    Also, if anyone has any sources to share, it would be appreciated. I'm also wondering if it's OK to shoot steel or other ammo than brass in my G19. I'm assuming I can, but would need to clean the gun more often. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    My Walmart is stocked up with that stuff now. Got max limit of boxes of Federal for $9.47/50 tonight. I'll keep going back till it is gone. But it's been there every week for me.

    Funny over the winter there was no 9 good amount of 40 and few 45. Now it is backwards.

    Thanks guys. I can't figure why my favorite places are out of American Eagle and Prvi. I'm going shopping. Thanks for the links (and future links).

    Brown Bear smells and the smell permeates the gun. I prefer Wolf.

    The United States recently put out several contracts for huge quantities of 9mm. What's already on store's shelves is probably all you'll find in the very near future.
