Ammo Shortage Myth

It seems that the shortages of ammo in in the US was a .gov thing like many of us were saying.

The Canuks it appears never saw the big spike in price or supply shortage.

A classic Onion article explains that “Perky ‘Canada’ Has Own Government, Laws“. And now, it appears, Canada also has something else: ammunition for sale, and lots of it.

In perusing this Reddit thread on the ammo shortage, I was surprised to learn that Canadian Reddit users aren’t have any problems buying bulk ammo of any type, at only slightly elevated prices. User linuxbman reports that for 22LR, he’s “paying $20-$25 for a box of 500.” Another user urges fellow Canadians, “don’t mention the 1600 round crates of 5.56 for $449 that we have available everywhere.”

    At the beginning of july our walmart here in Sparta IL got 5 pallets of 22lr.Over a period of 10 days they sold all of it. It was Remington 525 packs for $21 a box, limit 3.
    The currently have plenty of Federal 380 and Winchester 45 in 100 rd boxes. People are coming from MO, KY & IN. But mostly it is due to having the International Shooting Range here. They have pallets of the target shot shells up and down the isles
