    Online ammo is normalizing but it probably wont last long. Apparently there are about 12-13 million more background checks each year so the new gun owners have created more demand. I'm guessing if multiple states shut down again there will be another rush on ammo.

    Probably a good time to stock up for some range time.

    The brick and mortars here are still pretty pricey but we have no restrictions on online ammo buying. Target Sports USA has some of the best prices I have seen in a long time.

    You cant use USPS for sure, other carriers are more ammo friendly and some suppliers will double box your ammo so its not obvious what's in the box. However its probably a felony.

    Last year I was going to the range 2-3 times per month so I was burning through it. Once the ammo shortages hit I basically could not practice at the range anymore without running my inventory super low so this year I'm buying in advance for range time.

    Dang...I don't know. There's still literally an "ammo line starts here" sign outside the local stores. Definitely not "normal" in brick and mortar and they are sold out pretty much still...unless you're looking for .410 slugs or black powder. I need to check online again though. See if there are any deals.

    Speer Gold Dot is my fav handgun ammo. This price is retarded low. Usually its over 90 cents per round. Obviously FMJ is cheaper but if you want lifetime defensive rounds here you go.

    Been able to start hitting the range regularly again over the past few months. Ammo prices are still elevated but much more palatable than 6-12 months ago.

    Guns are starting to come back. The good and bad of the pandemic. Creating a spike in demand and disruptions to supply, however itís distracting typically anti-gun politicians from there usual pursuits.
