Gun shops across the country are reporting ammunition shortages as many Americans continue to stock up on whatever they can get their hands on.
Jeff Dillard, who runs National Armory in Pompano, Florida says, “I have never seen ammo so impossible to get.”
Bruce A. Pelletier, owner of Pelletier’s Sports in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, says in his forty-four years in business, he’s never seen the shortage this bad.
“Customers have been buying it all at once. We’ve been at the point to limiting it to one or two boxes per person, so at least that more than one of our customers can have some.”
At Sam’s Outdoor Outfitters, which has locations in both New Hampshire and Vermont, rationing isn’t even an option.
“We haven’t had any ammunition that we can limit,” says owner Stanley Borofsky.
“People are calling on a daily basis…I’ve been here since 1957, and I’ve never seen the shortage this bad,” he said.
