I seldom purchase supplies from local sources, as the selection is limited and stocks are usually inadequate. So, I shop online for all my supplies.
In checking several online sources I find that some bullets and brass is in very short supply just now, anything .223 Remington, .9mm and .45 ACP among them. We had panic buying and Christmas depleting the supply. We can expect this to improve as manufacturers catch up with the demand.
