I can find 9 mm around me. Gat Guns had 1,000 rounds 9 mm FMJ cases for 300 bucks yesterday, but I passed as those prices. What I can't find is 22lr. No one has it anywhere. I'm really getting tired of this.

I found out today that a local establishment has .22LR in stock, just not displayed on the shelves. There is no sign posted to inquire about it. Apparently, they're operating on a "don't ask, don't tell" policy, for lack of better terms.

Point being, ask. Don't assume an empty shelf means none to be had.

I always ask. I've been laughed at a few times now.

Keep checking online, I've been finding stuff lately that I have no chance of finding in stores.

Indeed. I managed to hit an online store just right to snag a nice, new M4A1 upper for my AR at a semblance of reasonable price, considering the severe duty barrel option it's equipped with. A very short while later they were OOS again.

I'm sure if I bought ammo online I'd get screwed due to Illinois FOID system. By the time I proved I could, it would be gone.

I've been watching gunbot.net, and I've yet to be even able to add ammo to my cart after it beeps before it's sold out. I'm done for a few months.

I have a shipment coming from Cabela's right now that I was able to pick up through gunbot. Working overnights really helps and gives me more time to consider my orders. Even then, I've seen stuff go out of stock within the hour in the dead of night.

Yeah, still have to be quick. May have mentioned previously that I watched 60 cases (1,000 rds/case) of 7.62 x 51 go in a matter of 2 hours, give or take.

Things are even getting tight here in MT, and we've got an ammo manufacturer here (BVAC).
As usual it's worse in other places, like CA:
