Gunbot.net – a great ammo search tool

As someone who has been a passive observer to the current ammo market, my shooting hobby hasn’t really been disrupted. I did get my dad to join my winter pistol league and experiencing the ammo search through him has been very eye opening to the extent of the drought. Helping my father locate enough 9mm to compete in our modest round count league has been rough to say the least. I’m sure I don’t need to explain it as you’ve experienced it yourself.

Luckily, we have the internet and gun owners who are much smarter than I. One such individual has created GunBot.net which is a super slick ammo finder.

I hope it proves as useful to you as it did for me. Feel free to share any tools or sites you use to find ammo.

Ammunition Prices Rising, Pinching Law Enforcement

As the fear of an impending semi-automatic rifle ban has lead to a leap in ammunition demand and has impacted the general public, the corresponding increased prices are also effecting law enforcement’s budgets as well. Orland Park’s Police Chief Tim McCarthy requested an early purchase of ammunition for “training” amounting to almost $10,000 in 38 cases of ammo from Ray O’Herron Co. in Lombard, IL.

Have you tried to purchase ammunition lately and suffered from sticker shock, or even empty shelves?
