Ammo Shortage Could Leave Hunters with Empty Chambers

It's a classic case of supply and demand and in this case the demand is outweighing the supply.
Attention hunters.
If you plan on doing any hunting this fall, you better make sure you get your ammunition early, that is if you can get it at all.
This shortage of ammunition could leave some hunters with empty chambers.
Dan Seamen, who owns Elk Creek Sports Store in Lake City, says he has never seen it so bad in the 35 years he's been in business.
From shotgun shells to rifle shells, they just can't keep them in stock.
At Elk Creek Sports Store, a recent supply of shotgun shells, sits behind the counter, but those shells will be gone in no time at all.
And then try and get more.
Seamans says any hunter that doesn't have their supply of ammunition for the upcoming hunting season better be prepared to pay a bit more for shells, again, that is if you can find them at all.
Same goes for Bob McDowell, owner of Bobs Gun Shop.
He also says buy now for the season ahead.
The reasons for the shortages - some say it's because they fear the government will be regulating not only guns but ammunition, and also a major ammo manufacturer has cut way back on manufacturing ammo.
So it's a classic case of supply and demand and in this case the demand is outweighing the supply big time.
