    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

As a long time recreational shooter, The price of ammo has just gotten out of hand, the events of last year are gone, even the Prez, no longer talks about it, the price should be going down, but some folks are still trying to bend us over in the price, so what I am asking here if you find a good deal, pass that info along.

You can go here and find the cheapest place. They index prices from a bunch of different retailers.

gun-deals.com - User-Submitted Gun & Ammunition Deals

There are several factors that are running up the price, but mostly, it is greed on the buyers' part. If you don't believe me, go to gunbroker.com and look at all of the ammo for sale by individuals. These same individuals go to Walmart and buy it cheap, then turn around and resell it on gunbroker for crazy prices. The Walmart here finally stopped people from buying more than 3 boxes at a time. A lot of these people don't even shoot or own guns; they are just out to make a quick buck.

There are a lot of people that claim that it is the government that is keeping the prices high, but it is simple supply & demand. The prices are high, because demand is high. As soon as people stop panic-buying, the prices will drop.

You can also check stock at any Walmart store at the link below.

You can do a 'Force Check' on an individual store.

One problem is that the status may be an hour or two old.

I've been seeing some (small) improvements in availability lately.
