Every day, we’re hearing stories about how the DHS is “buying up all our ammo”. While there may be some validity in this, I spoke to an ammo/firearms salesperson to find out what industry retailers are being told.
What I learned about the ammo shortage wasn’t as stunning as the way he described the process in which salespeople decide whether someone should (or shouldn’t) be allowed to purchase a firearm.
Understandably, the salesperson has asked to remain anonymous. He has worked for the same retail store for almost 2 years and was recently promoted to a managerial position. So for this article, I am simply calling him “Frank”.
