The great ammo shortage that began last year will likely continue at least into early 2022, or perhaps even later.
Shelves at firearm retailers have largely remained empty, and ammunition continues to sell out as fast as it comes in. It isn’t uncommon to see customers lined up at large retailers and even trekking to remote gun shops in the hopes of finding any ammunition.
Increasingly, the lines for ammunition have become to resemble holiday shopping for that must-have toy of the season.
The situation is not any better online, where retailers also quickly sell out of their stock. In some cases customers have thought they were in luck, only to find the stock depleted by the time they go to check out.
