supply and demand people, the more people want it, the more the price goes up.
In this case, I think it's more a matter of demand and hardly any supply. I'd agree with you if we were getting normal sized ammo shipments but it's pretty much scraps here and there, nothing on a consistent basis. I've signed up for stock notices at about a dozen reputable online ammo seller since late December, none have come in yet. I check the local stores weekly and it's the exact same story. I live in a pretty large metro area so it's not like I'm out in the sticks either.

So, people like me want ammo now, before that law passes. (It certainly may not pass, and that's the hope, but it's worth hedging against it by getting a bit of ammo now).
That time to stock up on ammo came and went prior to the election and sandy hook. You're pretty much fighting for scraps now.

Indeed. But those of us that said that at the time, were accused of spreading FUD.

Yeah, it's getting old, but I care if they change ammo laws. Here in CA, they want to force people to give a thumb print for ammo purchases, as well as forcing the stores to track and store records of ammo purchases. So, people like me want ammo now, before that law passes. (It certainly may not pass, and that's the hope, but it's worth hedging against it by getting a bit of ammo now).
You forgot about the Ammo Permit you have to buy, the background check to get that permit, the fees due annually to maintain that permit and the 5 cent per round tax (running out of sources to fund welfare) when you purchase any ammo. If anyone should be hoarding ammo it's Californians because crapping on your second amendment right is second nature in this state. The south and midwest have absolutely nothing to worry about, so anyone stockpiling ammo in those states is wasting time and money.

I'd say the chances that law will pass are exceedingly good.

CA laws have a way of spreading. When CA enacted their "assault weapons" ban, the calls for a federal version started almost immediately, and in a few short years it happened, despite most gun folks thinking it didn't have a chance of passing. Things will move much quicker in today's environment.

Buy what you want now.

Because the idiots in CA elect creatures like Dianne Feinstein. That thing has been kept in office all this time and that type of creature is why CA has gun laws like it does.

A rep I spoke with told me that several major LE ammo contracts have been cancelled (by the ammo mfg's), due to the police agencies purchasing everything they made, and leaving nothing for them to sell to the public - especially .22 ammo for whatever reason (contracts gave LE dept's first dibs on apparently all ammo). He's already seen more ammo come available, and said he expects major retailers to start receiving more shipments soon. This was about 10 days ago, and I've already seen an increase in ammo in my area. Dept. manager at my local wally world also confirmed he's had increased shipments this week.

AR's have also been coming in, here and there. And here's a copy of my receipt showing one I bought a little over a week ago (to offset the "it didn't happen if there's no receipt").

Even the price-gouging local gun stores are starting to drop their prices on existing inventory.

Unless you have pending legislation in your state, my advice would be to wait a bit.

I hear you... that about sums it up, the thing is that the people by in large support this assault on their rights they think it protects them it's hilarious. I saw one poll in a paper, the question was about banning "semi automatic weapons" and it was a big vote in favor, people obviously don't know wtf a semi automatic weapon is, this is pretty much anything other than a wheel gun or a musket. It's due to ignorance, pure ignorance, that these laws come to pass.

Hogwash.

Have the "rep" you spoke with name one.

Most government contracts have penalty clauses in them. And cancelling a government contract for no good reason would be death to any future business with them. None of the major manufacturers have done any such thing.

Take off the tinfoil. The shortages are coming from panic buying, not from government buying it all up. Most LE agencies have cut their budgets for hiring/training in recent years, and are buying less. But folks that haven't bought a box of ammo for years, or have never bought any, are buying cases of it.

But you're correct, availability will get better eventually, as the pipeline gets filled, just as is starting to happen with guns. But ammo is going to take a little longer, as all of those new buyers stock up, along with those who already owned guns.

I know that Arizona was mentioned as one of the contracts that got cancelled. The contracts had provided for x amount of ammo within a certain period. The agencies in question had more than acquired the contract quota, in a couple cases apparently doubled the allotment. Doesn't mean that the mfg's aren't still going to sell to these LE agencies - means they're not required to continue giving them first dibs on everything they produce.

Ammo mfg's make more money selling to the general public, it's in their best interest to fulfill any and all quota contracts, and then leave those contracts to make more money.

So far everything I've been told by reps I've known for years and others has been true. That's the reason I've been able to buy what I want - like the AR I posted a receipt of.

Beautiful. I know several people who work for AZ state contracting. A quick email to one and the reply. They've had no ammunition contracts cancelled by any manufacturers. Their purchases have not increased to over any "quotas". In fact, most agencies have received less, due to increased prices and slow deliveries.

Your "rep" contact is fos. Please tell them I said so.

They also make money selling on government contracts. Contracts that will still be there after the panic buying going on now dies off. They are not going to blackball themselves from future business.

By the way, government contracts don't have "quota's". Most specify the dollar amount, with increases allowed as needed.

Wow, just received shipping confirmation! Didn't actually expect it to ship, but now that it has I have to decide if I should shoot what sounds to be some very dirty ammo that cost $0.05 a round with shipping...
