Since this is an election year gun and ammo sales promise to be on the rise. In fact, those sales could skyrocket depending on which candidate wins. But as we get closer to the election and another ammorush ensues, the question remains the same: what came first, the chicken of panic or the egg of quantity shortages? Are manufacturers really churning out enough ammo right now or are the sales limits many stores continue to enforce simply keeping more ammo on the shelves? There are a number of angles to this and there seems to be a grain of truth to each of them. So much so it seems unlikely any one answer is correct on its own.If you're a prepper, survivalist, or investor now is the time to buy ammo. Want something that is guaranteed to go up in value? Ammo and firearms should be at the top of your list.
Questions aside, maybe this is a good time to take stock of your ammo situation. Rather than freaking out later when you realize you don’t actually have any ammo to shoot without hitting your local gun store, maybe you should be building a stockpile today. Yes it does take time to build up a truly impressive ammo pile, but you’ll never get there if you don’t start now. How do you do it? Prioritize calibers and get to it, one box at a time.
Summer vacation? Nope, buy in bulk. New car? Are you nuts? Fix the old one, forget about keeping up with the Jones's (who you don't like anyway), dump the fake it till you make it mentality and buy ammo.
Is this tinfoil hat? Nope. Its taking a look at a commodity that I predict will be scarce. That box of shitty Tula will be worth its weight in gold soon! Just kidding. Tula is some great range ammo but you get the point.
