To some, the ammunition shortage that gun owners faced in early 2013 is already over. While it is true that in many parts of the country ammo can still be hard to find, or outrageously priced, boxes of bullets seem to be returning to gun shop counters in general.
“I won’t say we’re over it, but supplies are slightly coming back,” Jon Anson told the Idaho Statesman. Anson works as the director of the Idaho Firearms and Accessories Manufacturers Association. “The panic buying has subsided. It’s not increasing, anyhow. Many manufacturers have increased their build rate, such as ATK in Lewiston, to help the supply.”
