interesting that small pistol primers were found recently at Sportsmans Warehouse.
I call my local Sportsmans a couple times a week asking if they have gotten any primers or powder in and have been getting told NO every time.
My timing must suck  :dunno: ;)
No its because the counter guy calls up his buddy and let's him know they are going on the shelves in the morning . Or the same guys show up every delivery day and wipe out what's put on the shelves.

Or one of the employees comes in before their shift and buy the stuff to resell....I overheard a conversation between employees that one of them had come in and bought more than you technically can because of the SKU being the same or something....

I was told the corporate requires the store managers to post on Facebook The night before when theyíre going to have Ammo put out. The next morning there will be a line a block long waiting to get in

Lots of theories.  Strictly speaking about Sportsmanís,  the shipment days arenít always the same from what Iíve been told.  There are limits on certain products. Iíve found 9mm ammo pretty regularly with no connection to the counter guy.  I always make it a point to ask about product and recent history, some are more friendly than others with info.  You just have to make it a point to stop regularly.  If you go in on the one afternoon of the month that they are out, I know itís hard to believe that ďnormal peopleĒ have found any ammo.   Iíve been in several afternoons and seen plenty of ammo.  They did move the common high requested ammo to a shelf in customer service.  I believe thatís due in some part to theft from the signs I saw the week before they moved them.   I walked away today from around 100 boxes of 9mm because none of it was the target ammo I wanted.  At 2 boxes per customer, thatís 50 folks who can get some if they needed it.  Iíve purchased over 30 boxes of target 9mm locally in the last 4 months...  itís out there.  Iíve also never paid over $14 a box.

Now with regards to the Cabelas down the street from my house, they SUCK.   I rarely find anything there.  Itís horrible when compared to Sportsmanís for shooting needs.  Currently they donít even have rifle ammo,  sportsmanís has some on the shelf every time Iíve been there for the last 2 weeks.   I donít get it?  Perhaps everyone thinks Cabelas is the only place in town?  I refuse to stand in that line before they open just to race to the back with all the old geezers filling their basement.  Lol

I wonder if the Cabelaís shortage is more the Ďnewí gun owners that bought their gun there and actually do not know there are other places that carry ammo?

Just wait, shortly Sportsman's will be as useless as Cabelas unfortunately.

Seems like a large amount of ammo/reloading supplies hit Sportsmanís today.   Cabelas even had some ammo.  $42 for a box of 9mm though... no thanks.

Sayís the two guys living in Montana and Colorado ! No offense to you miles and oh mah actually Iím jealous but itís easy for you two to say this is the norm? Neither of you have to battle the other 1/2 million other guys looking for the same thing that you are because you live in states with less population. Youíre lucky cause you have less competition for the same products.  Itís easy for you to say how easy it is from your perspective but from here where we are itís not the same and your experience is not the same across the country. Just sayin

Denver has a decent population, and Thornton is part of Denver.  We have shortage issues, you just have to keep checking.  Itís timing.    As I was walking out yesterday with the primers a guy in the parking lot says ďthey have primers?Ē  When I said yes, this 50 something year old man started running for the front door.   So if you want to come out here cause stuff is easier to find... make the drive. 


I stop at sportsmanís several times a week.  I keep tabs on what is going on.  If you did the same in WA you could probably find some product.  Obviously donít go in the evening when the whole population is off work for the day.

 :tup:

Most all the shops are on first name basis by now. When I was in Wyoming and Montana recently there was far more stuff on the shelves than in Wa. Iím getting some stuff but trust me Iíve also walked out of stores first thing in the morning 100 times lately empty handed. I get what your saying but just because you keep checking the well in a drought doesnít make the rain appear 😉 Again totally jealous good for you!

I hear ya.  I got a little excited to find primers yesterday.  Itís nice walking out with something you were actually looking for.   I think things will change for the better in a few months.  Iíve noticed a slight change lately (for the better).

I got a part time job at our local one.  I see freight come in on Monday, Monday, Monday and then when I tell people the next freight should be the next Monday, it's delayed and doesn't show until Wednesday.  The key thing is the stores only get freight once a week so calling multiple times doesn't help.
