If the following article doesn’t finally make a point and manage to somewhat support my previous article regarding the real reason behind the current ammo shortage, I don’t know what will. The numbers speak for themselves and I want you to focus mainly on the numbers given regarding total ammunition sales. While these are just estimates and on the low end of the spectrum, you can’t get more credible numbers as NIC can provide.
EveryTown, USA - -(AmmoLand.com)- In just 3 months Americans bought enough guns to outfit the entire Chinese and Indian army’s combined.
You also bought 1,529,635,000 rounds of ammunition in just the month of December 2008. Yeah that is right, that is Billion with a “B”.
This is an evaluation of overall firearms and ammunition purchases based on low end numbers per Federal NIC instacheck data base Statistics. The numbers presented are only PART of the overall numbers of arms and ammunition that have been sold. The actual numbers are much higher.
Folks, don’t panic…relax. Take what you hear like a grain of salt and don’t add to what is already a major issue for many gun enthusiasts. I’ve never experienced such a shortage of ammo and so many people at gun shows as a result.
