Last year 2020 proved to be the most demanding year for ammo manufacturers in the United States. Due to the uncertainties surrounding a pandemic, months of rioting, and Biden’s policy change, getting your hands on ammo had never been harder. For new gun buyers or the seasoned gun buyer – everyone seemed to be in the same boat. With gun sales in the US coming close to 40 million guns sold in 2020, ammo sales skyrocketed, depleting stockpiles and straining ammo manufacturers, creating a market that was scarce with ammo and rich with price gougers.
As we hit mid-year in 2021 more buying opportunities have blossomed online and ammo prices are starting to plummet, giving the consumer the long-awaited benefits of the Ammo Boom. New websites like AmmoSale.com have been exploding online, offering the most competitive pricing on the most popular ammo and shooting accessories, kneecapping the price gougers and driving the industry pricing down in the process.
“The demand created a ‘Gold Rush’ for current ammo manufacturers to expand their operations and it enabled new manufacturers to hit the ammo industry in stride – allowing me to buy popular calibers in bulk, undercutting the price gougers, and hopefully putting the outrageous ammo prices in check” says AmmoSale.com Head of Operations, Loren Hrabovsky. “As retail stores could no longer stock shelves, the consumer is being pushed to online alternatives, and hopefully they are making safe and fiscally responsible decisions and going to places like AmmoSale.com where we offer the most competitive prices in the industry.” he further added.
From social media retailers to online wholesalers and everywhere in between, ammo buying opportunities online are at an all-time high and with the click of a button ammo buying has never been easier. This trend is here to stay and as the demand for ammo subsides the pricing will continue to plummet and the opportunities to purchase will be abundant. If there ever was a silver lining to the ammo shortage of 2020 it’s that it juiced up the amount of ammo being manufactured and created places like AmmoSale.com so consumers can finally benefit from the historical volume of ammo being produced.
