Ammo Shortages Felt Nationwide Even as Manufacturers Ramp-up Production

From 1945 – It continues to be a serious seller’s market for ammunition across the United States, and even as manufacturers have ramped up production the supply can’t keep pace with the demand.

The impact is especially being felt by law enforcement – worse still for small-town police departments – who continue to be impacted by rising costs and limited availability.

In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the nationwide ammunition shortage has increased prices of ammunition at a rate that it is taxing the budgets of some of the rural police departments.

“It is substantial and that causes us, our budget, to hurt at the end of the year,” Sheriff Greg Zyburt, Marquette County, told TV 6 News.

Although both the Marquette County and Houghton County sheriff’s departments have purchased enough ammunition for the rest of 2021, the rising costs could be a future problem, Zuburt added. “If it continues to be difficult to purchase ammunition it will be a problem and a challenge but at this point, we are still in good shape because we did anticipate this happening.”

A few hundred miles away from Marquette County the ammunition shortage is being felt by the Fergus Falls Rifle and Pistol Club in Minnesota. Gary Wahl, who runs the club and is also a licensed firearms dealer, believes that fear has driven sales of ammunition just as it has driven firearms sales.

A year into a global pandemic has been good for gun sales, but the fear isn’t just Covid-19, warned Wahl.
