I found this video on SHTF Blog. It made me come to a few conclusions/thoughts...
1. Even government agencies can be caught flat footed when it comes to hard goods.
2. This law enforcement agency didn't have the "contacts" to source ammo from Federal or State agencies...or worse, they didn't have extra either.
3. This is a bonafide shortage. The demand has far outstripped the supply. The Democrats keep pushing gun control despite the knowledge that Americans are "gunning up"...this speaks of either conviction on their part or downright fear and the desire to put an end to gun ownership.
4. This might point to a future where actual goods...whether food, water, clothes, tools etc...are considered more valuable than the money to buy them.
My last point should send a chill through the spine of everyone that isn't a hard core prepper (me included). The thought that you can't go out and buy what you need because it can't be found (or easily found) should make everyone think twice.
This is the tin foil hat (some of you will say) future that I see. I ain't happy about it but I'm going to adjust accordingly...especially when it comes to must have items.
