How long will the ammo shortage last?

WBTV) - Since the pandemic began, gun sales have increased. It is estimated that there are 7 million new gun owners in the last 18 months. People were shopping for self-protection, target shooting and other reasons, says Bobby Robbins of Guns Too in Lenoir. That has put a lot of pressure on ammunition supplies, he says, and manufacturers haven't been able to keep up.

One problem was that manufacturers had their own problems during COVID-19 and production slowed or even stopped at times. However, prices have risen dramatically due to the costs of raw materials and the supply and demand situation. There are still no predictions from experts as to whether costs will drop once supply meets demand. Law enforcement officials contacted by WBTV said their agencies are not yet affected by the shortage.

After supply problems 13 years ago, most have kept a two-year supply available for training and active duty just in case. I was lucky enough to stock up on ring ammo, pistol ammunition, AR ammunition, shotgun ammunition by buying something in bulk and some individual boxes until I had an adequate supply.
