I hear you Plano. I ordered 1,500 9mm, 1,500 .40 and 500 .357 about 2 months back. 9mm was impossible to find around Nashville. A store would get in 2 pallets and they’d be gone by lunch. I’ve been using Ammunition Depot for a little while. They get you the stuff shipped out very quick and free shipping.
Good article in the Opinion section of the WSJ today from a writer there that just bout his first firearm. He gives some stats on who is buying right now and the demographics would surprise some. 40%+ of new buys this year are females and the racial demographics are not the norm. But it matches exactly what my friends that own pawn shops around here have been telling me.
