Ammo Prices: 07/18/2014

    Week 16.

    A couple of the vendors contacted me today and wanted to pass on that they are seeing a run on ammo right now, likely due to the sanctions that were recently announced. Also given some of the other world events within the past couple of days we may see some supply issues if people start panic buying again. Despite these events, overall it seems that the prices of ammo are still slightly trending down (more vendors decreased prices slightly this week than those that increased).

    So, should you buy ammo? Yep. It’s how you feed your guns and have fun shooting. But I wouldn’t buy from a sense of panic. Keep a good stock on hand and carry on.

    Also, this week the only free shipping that I could identify was through Ammoman. I didn’t flag anything in the tables specifically.

    We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this article series as long as it is productive.

    As always, if you have comment or witticisms, please leave them below. And if you find that some of the items are now out of stock or the prices have significantly changed, please let the other readers know. Also, if you know of any vendors that are not represented here and you have had a good experience with, comment below and we will see about adding them.

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
