    Our local Wallyworld's trucks come in on Wednesday and Monday nights. Our store's manager started putt ammo out at random times throughout the week to keep the campers out of the isle during late night business hours. That has helped a lot around here. Now folks can get most anything they want anytime, except 22. When they do put it out it will be gone in 24 hrs. None of it is at inflated prices either. I haven't seen a RollBack sign over the ammo but it's not higher than when this mess started.

    I don't pay $4 a cup for coffee at Starbucks for the same reason I'm not gonna pay $.50 a round for 9mm target ammo. I'm not gonna pay more for anything than it is worth to me.

    Here in Connecticut, things will never return to "Normal' :(

    Getting ANY ammo is difficult. Cabela's does have some handgun ammo with a 100 round limit. Magazine restrictions have made a logistical problem for firearm retailer's

    Not until you turn the state from blue to red or at least a light shade of purple.:banghead:

    Get politically active if you aren't already.

    I have been watching the prices of parts for AR variants and the prices are the same for mags, bcgs, uppers, lowers, and magazines as they were before the sandy hook panic. I think you will even see prices become cheaper yet on parts.

    I talked to a local Scheels sales rep and he said they have more mags on hand to sell now that he doesn't think the store will have to buy anymore for years to come. I seen the ar racks were stacked full. Just a matter of time for the ammo prices to come down and I think we will see a ton of ammo eventually.
