Ammunition is still scarce as we move further into the year that shall not be named. There are generally two thoughts on this, one of them being that everyone should stop buying ammo because the climate dictates that if we keep buying it the price will continue to rise.
I believe there is truth in that. There is no reason to lower prices if we are still buying it. But the second thought is also valid, and it is this: We still need to train, and still need to make sure we can defend ourselves. We need ammo to do that.
While we're huge advocates of dry fire training, at some point you need to feel your gun recoiling as you sling lead downrange.
Because 9mm is the most popular handgun round, I figured I'd put together a list, albeit a short list, of places where you can still find this once-cheap ammunition to buy. Be prepared for some sticker shock though, because you'll be paying for this ammo.
The folks over at Ammo Supply Warehouse are good friends of ours. They even provide our Guardian Nation members a 5% discount code, which, in this climate, is a huge deal.
As of this writing, they've got three different 9mm products in stock that will ship to your door, depending on where you live of course. What I mean is that if you can't have ammo shipped to your door because you live behind enemy lines we can't help you.
While the prices are high, they're actually pretty competitive given the current market. You can find their store, here.
Lucky Gunner gets ammo in stock pretty quickly compared to others because they move a lot of product. Their prices can be atrocious depending on what you're getting, but if you need ammo you may be willing to pay.
I have used them before and while reliable, they're not my first choice. They're not the worst option, however and they tend to ship quick.
As of this writing they have four different 9mm products in stock on their website, which you can find here.
This is a website I have not used as of yet, and in fact, I just found them. But they have a good selection of bulk 9mm in stock from various manufacturers.
Because I have not used them yet I can't say a whole lot about them. They also had some .380 and 5.56 in stock, which, 380 is almost nearly impossible to find. You can find their website here.
Please keep in mind that ammo moves out of stock very fast in this market and by the time you read this, any of these websites may be out of stock. Try not to hold that against me while you're looking
It's also a good idea to check out manufacturer websites, though after I spilled the beans on that a couple months ago it dried up significantly. Still, they re-stock ammo on a regular basis and it's worth checking periodically especially since they don't pay to have their websites listed on ammunition databases (not to my knowledge, anyway).
Of course, you can also check out the ammoseek.com website for a fairly accurate representation of in stock ammo, and Gun Broker is also a good place to look, though I have been hearing some mixed reviews here lately, and recommend you use caution.
