Did you notice that I used the word “when” instead of “if”? It’s because a shortage will happen again. It’s not a question of if it’s going to happen. It’s just a question of when it’s going to happen again.
If you are a firearms enthusiast or a survivalist, then you know the feeling of not having ammo. After all, how can you practice at the range without them? But more importantly, not having ammo is very scary for a survivalist. It’s an important part of being prepared for a collapse when society is in chaos and you can’t depend on the police.
Now, it’s important to note that there’s very little that you can do once there’s a shortage happening. You can’t go to a store and hoard $5,000 worth of ammo because they’re not going to let you do that. At most, you’ll be able to buy 1 or 2 boxes.
You have two options. One, you can stock up now. Stock up like this guy who’s prepared for a collapse:
Better yet, buy reloading supplies and equipment. This way, you’ll have a steady stream of ammo and you can reload them as needed. You can start reloading now and enjoy the benefits now, and in the future when you can’t find any in stores.
Besides, having a steady stream of ammo is very important when a collapse happens. Ammo will be very precious and you can use them yourself or trade them for other items. During the shortage of ammo last year, there were a lot of desperate individuals who are willing to do and pay anything for them. In these cases, ammo is a great bargaining tool.
