Ammo Shortages as Sales Rise Ahead of Expected New Gun Control Laws

Stan Dix and his staff at the Top Gun store here take turns getting up in the middle of the night to scour the Internet for fresh postings of ammunition for sale. Availability, he says, is scarce.

“Wholesalers get their supplies in overnight, so I’ll get up around 2 or 3 a.m. to check their websites,” Dix said. “We’re kind of doing what we have to, and limiting sales to use at our outdoor range.”
