I have a 9mm pistol that I just purchased brand new this past Friday. I went to Walmart on the south side of Jackson TN to get ammo and they were completely out of all Pistol ammo. I went to North side Walmart and they were out as well.
Demand for bullets is so strong that suppliers are restricting deliveries.
"Where we used to get 20 to 30 cases [in a shipment], we may get two to three cases now," said Vic Grechniw of Florida Ammo Traders in Tampa. "The supply just isn't there. . . . Everybody is pretty much rushing out to get their hands on whatever they can."
Most in demand is handgun ammunition, including 9 mm and .45-caliber for semiautomatic pistols and .38-caliber for revolvers. Clerks at local Walmart stores, including Apopka and Kissimmee, say those sizes, along with .22-caliber, are on back order at the chain's warehouses.
