Where Has All The Ammo Gone?

Ohio –(Ammoland.com)- I’ve often said that there is no such thing as bringing too much ammunition to a gun fight.
These days you might be lucky to have any ammo for that gunfight.
It seems that it is virtually impossible to find some of the most popular calibers on dealers’ shelves these days.
I went out the other day in search of 9mm Luger ammo — I need about 400 more rounds for an upcoming class I will be taking this coming Spring. Yet it seems there is none to be had. Where one of my local gun shops used to have pallets consisting of thousands of rounds of 9mm ammo, now they are lucky to have just a few boxes, if that.
One of the gun shops in my area will only sell you 9mm ammunition if you are also buying a handgun chambered for it at the same time, and then they limit you to just two boxes.
Most other dealers have also instituted a “two box limit” when they do have ammunition in stock.
