NAT’L – RETAILERS – Ammunition Makers Facing Massive Order Backlog, Shortage May Last Until 2021

Ammunition makers are reporting a massive backlog and, in some cases, the shortage is so severe that gun owners may not be able to purchase ammunition off the shelves until next year. Bearing Arms reports that at least one Arizona ammunition manufacturer, the Scottsdale, Arizona, based Ammo Incorporated, is “facing an $80.1 million backlog amid record demand for ammunition.”

“We’re working right now seven days a week, 24 hours a day in all the manufacturing plants,” the company’s CEO told media. The demand has forced Ammo International to expand its industrial operation, adding millions of dollars in machinery and expanding their production. Shooting Illustrated, the National Rifle Association’s own news organization, adds that “the current ammunition shortage may continue at least until 2021.” Bearing Arms notes that the increase in ammunition sales has eclipsed even the increase in gun sales. “According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the year has already seen a boom in gun purchases, up 95% in the first half of 2020 compared to the same time period of 2019,” the outlet notes. “But ammo sales skyrocketed even higher, up 139% compared to 2019 during that same time period.” Ammo Incorporated’s CEO suggests that, initially, gun and ammunition purchases increased because of the coronavirus lockdowns. Fearing that help may not be on the way and that emergency services could be otherwise occupied, Americans armed themselves and stockpiled extra ammunition in case it became unavailable. National unrest, though, has given rise to further security concerns, and the many anti-racism and anti-police protests that have given way to violence and looting have driven gun owners to purchase additional weapons and ammunition.  [full article]
