9mm stock, price to be affected by FBI switch?

Does the FBI switching to 9mm cause any forecast for higher prices and less stock for 9mm rounds?

Since I recently traded a .22lr pistol for an almost new M&P9 fullsize I was reading and wondered if he knew something I didnt. I have not looked at gunshops yet but the local dept/grocery store has some 9mm where I bought a little. They dont even stock much ammo either.

I just don't want a 22LR ordeal with this 9mm. I have over 1500 .22LR rounds for my 10-22 (had a pistol too is why had few extra but I didnt buy more so I didnt contribute to panic buying shortages, my brother knows a guy with over 25,000 rds cause panic buying at the start of the shortage a while back) & enough 5.56, just enough .38spl etc etc.., but not much 9mm yet. I plan to buy more this weekend though.

Any input on this?

Thanks.

Right now, I only get my 9mm ammo thru online vendors and order it by the case. One online vendor gets so many orders that they cannot keep what I want in stock for more than a day or two. Another vendor has had what I want in stock the last 3-4 times I ordered and has free shipping on "case" amounts. I usually get the brand/bullet weight I want for 10.99-11.99 per box of 50. So far, I use Aguila,Lawman,Fiocchi,Blazer Brass, and in a pinch WWB.

Around here 9mm is falling off the shelves at most retailers.
In fact most any ammo is plentiful again even 22

I dont own a 9 so you can at least count on me for not contributing to any panic purchasing.

However
45
40
357
38
22
12ga
20ga
7.62
30/30
308

I may have to try to beat you to the store for.

I began to wonder the same thing which is why I picked up a used 40c the other day. I don't expect anything soon but I thought I would be prepared. In the event of a another panic buy, and especially with so many law enforcement agencies abandoning the 40 in favor of the 9, having the 40 provides a viable alternative.

The FBI organization isn't large enough to affect ammo prices significantly in today's buyers market with a great oversupply and with ammo companies laying off workers as a result.

Dittos on TargetSportsUSA in Connecticut for cheap bulk ammo purchases with free shipping. Another great place for smaller amounts of defensive ammo but without free shipping is SGAmmo in Oklahoma, which is a family owned operation. I'd like to see both of these businesses continue to do well as they are the cheapest places that I have found on the Internet.

Wont effect me at all, never has... as i have reloaded for years. I`ve also been stocking up on ammo & reloading supplies for many years just incase the ammo panic starts again... and it will start again, it always does. It`s always driven by politics & elections, and mainly greed. Every time "the panic" hits, it costs us ALL alot more money... and the prices (like gasoline) usually never go back down. When people panic, sellers gouge and rape us. Be smart, stock up on everthing a little bit at a time, BEFORE, the panic hits, then the sellers cant` gouge and rape you, because you`ll already have what you need. The people that dont believe that it can happen, are usually the ones that are in a panic, when it DOES happen.

Yup, pretty much, but this time I won't be caught with my pants down. I purchase ammo weekly, and have been for some time. I have especially invested in .22LR.

9mm stock, price to be affected by FBI switch?

I build my ammo stock on buy a couple a week plan.
In other words I try to pick up 2-3 boxes of whatever caliber(s) Imam "low" on each pay period.
Like stocking the pantry but with ammo.

I am interested in reloading and have been seriously thinking about taking it up. Not that the $$ saved is a driving factor as cost wise its not a huge difference. But the other benefits are well worth it.

Dont worry however I dont own any 9mm so Ill leave it
Ill just grab the 40/45 38/357 22 stuff LOL

I haven't seen 9mm go up, but it looks like .40 is going down.
