I went to 2 or 3 retail gun stores today. There was no lack of new platforms for sale, and ammo to go with. Handgun ammo available but mostly in personnal protection loads. $$$... Target loads, unavailable.
I doubt the gov. is buying up .22 standard or .38 wadcutters.
Thank the "free market".
Why manufacture cheap target ammo when we can maximize profit thru fear. JD
