    Northern VA. 75 percent of gas stations no gas or diesel. No Ammo except for occassional shotgun shells. Couple of gun shops price gouging 9mm for 1.50 /round. It's a circus...more than normal.

    John,
    I saw this thread referenced in the newsletter that just came out.
    Not sure if it will add anything but I can chime in.
    Here in the Fort Worth area gas is still plentiful. No shortages just rising prices.
    Ammo is still hard to come by, although we are starting to see more shotgun ammo. Prices are still ridiculous. An ostentatious display of wealth around here is driving around with a box of 9mm in a truck with two sheets of plywood

    Did the Left Just Win a Gun Battle?

    An article I published at Medium.com

    "Did the Left Just Win a Gun Battle?"

    Here in South Georgia and North Florida gas is mostly available without much trouble. Guns are relatively plentiful just not the ones you really want. Ammo, tho . . . expensive!

    Rumors of a gas shortage had a run at several stations in my area (Hernando County, FL) on the west coast, but I was able to get gas at my neighborhood station without any interruptions in service.

    The ammo shortage is widespread, and has been for months, unless youíre willing to pay the high online prices. Fortunately, Iíve always bought plenty of factory ammo and reloading components during the ďgood times;Ē so Iím personally in good shape, and donít intend to buy any until prices return to normal. How long thatíll take is totally dependent on how long people continue to buy and hoard ammo at those inflated prices.

    When people stop buying at those prices; supply will be able to catch up with demand, and prices will return to normal.

    Starting to notice prices of necessary items skyrocketing. The availability of new cars is short because of supply chain issues in the chip component area.

    S/W Colorado in the Tribal area near a Liberal Enclave. Gasoline is readily available 3.29 unleaded, 3.69 alcohol free.
    Ammunition is available, but expensive. Due to my habits, I am unaffected. Bought a rifle in an adjacent state in March -
    my first delay ever and took a full 10 days. Had a rifle shipped to my LGS yesterday - 30min. Rifles were both bought at
    pre-covid prices. Reports of 9mm (which I have no use for) available in quantity at a farm and ranch store 45min away at
    pre-covid pricing today. Wife went in for major surgery (broken hip) last week and the only mention of covid was a casual inquiry if she was vacced. Masks were "required", but in her room it was not even mentioned. We did not wear in the room.
    Groceries are available, but prices rising and rotating shortages - supply lines. Auto Parts are also rotating shortages due to
    supply lines and worker shortages. New and Used cars are hard to find and a sellers market. More and more cases of people
    who "just do not belong" in this area - demographics, clothing, mannerisms. Rapidly increasing homeless population. Home prices in both city and county up in excess of 100K. Property near the ski area median price over 1 mil. City median 650K,
    County 500K and climbing. Rental market destroyed. Jobs are plentiful, but cannot be filled. Workers commuting in 1hr + due to local cost of living. Large graffiti incidence exploding. My new gun safe just got pushed to a 4 month wait and still counting. Gate is kept locked and I am armed at all times.
    BTW - Wife is doing GREAT - today said that the walker is in her way and refuses to use it, quit taking Tylenol (the only pain medication used), inspected incision today - Perfect, seeing surgeon for follow up Wed.
    Other than that, all is well.

    John,
    I have no problem over here in the U.S.A.

    I had some ammo in storage. My local range has plenty of ammo FS at 20% more than before. I think the new normal is 20%-25% more due to liberal government rules with the increasing commodity prices.

    I have a license to carry and own a bunch of guns. I really have nothing to complain about.
    Colt 1911, S&W revolvers, Winchester rifles

    The new normal around here (eastern U.S.) is more like double the pre-COVID-19 prices ... if you can find anything to buy.
