A more than month-long shortage of ammunition is showing no sign of easing across the country.
“I’m over here today trying to buy .22’s just because there’s a shortage,” said frequent target shooter Rhonda Calbreath of Davis, as she hoped to find a couple of boxes at the Just Guns store in Sacramento.
“We just came from a store down the road and they have no .22’s and no .9’s,” said Calbreath, referring to .22-caliber and 9mm ammunition, two of those in shortest supply.
“And the prices are outrageous,” she added.
