“People have begun to hoard ammunitions, and it has made it difficult for others to find those ammunitions,” said Daniel Gallegos JR, Danny’s Pawn & Sporting Goods Gun Shop Store Manager.
Sporting goods store owners said the lack of higher ammo quantities is coming from higher up the assembly line.
“The manufacturers have increased production, but they are still having difficulty getting it to the retailers like us,” said Gallegos.
And while there hasn’t been a complete shortage, explaining to customers why they can’t reload on certain ammunition isn’t easy.
“It is frustrating because we are losing out on sales and customers get upset with us,” said Gallegos. “We have to explain, well we’re trying, we try everyday to find more ammunitions, but it’s become more difficult.”
