Went to my local gun show today to report on ammo availability and pricing. I was very shocked by what I found. Not only did some calibers sell out within 1 hour of the first day, but the price tags on some were completely absurd.
Georgia Arms, which I personally don’t by ammo from, sold out of all .45 Auto and 9mm ammunition within the very first hour. In addition, I got there at exactly 12pm on the first day of show and could not find .45 auto ammunition at all.
Below are some other findings…
- 50rd box of American Eagle 9mm – $21.00!
- 50rd box of Fiocchi .32 Auto – $22.99!
The most shocking though? A 50rd box of .380 Auto for a whopping $45.99!!!
Guns where a bit higher in price but some popular guns and shotguns were still modestly priced.
It’s amazing as to just how scarce ammunition is and the price gouging taking place by those who manage to actually have supply to sell!
