In this week's episode, Mark S. Mann and I discuss the very real possibility of Russia creating another ammunition shortage here in the United States. With major importers, like Wolf and Tula being sold out of Russian product, we examine how this will impact your ability to purchase practice and self defense rounds. Has Russia's President Putin advised exporters of Russian ammunition to either slow-walk orders or stop shipping altogether? How long could it last?
Later in the program, we look at the impact of Presidential cycles and how in just a few short years firearms and ammunition sales have grown from a declining market to a point of shortages.
We discuss hoarding vs investment in ammunition. We take an in-depth look at how cheap ammunition can impact the investment you made in an expensive firearm. What creates quality issues, how manufacturers are impacted by events like Sandy Hook. How do these events impact your ability to purchase top quality ammunition?
