Gun Stores Seeing A Run On Ammunition

POMPANO BEACH (CBS4) – Ammunition sellers and manufacturers say there’s been a run on bullets and they can’t keep their shelves stocked.

Jeff Dillard who runs National Armory in Pompano says it’s the worst he’s ever seen.

“I have never seen ammo so impossible to get,” said Dillard.

He said demand for ammunition has been growing and spiked over the past couple of days.

“Because of the terrorist attacks and the gun control legislation people are getting in more of a panic situation,” Dillard said.

When he can get bullets, Dillard says, they’re expensive.

“We paid five times the price we would normally pay,” he said, adding that it isn’t just ammunition running low, he can’t even get the parts to make bullets. “All our vendors are telling us not only are they out of stock but some are two to three million bullet-heads in back-order. They won’t even take our orders because they don’t know when they’ll be able to fill them.”
