California gun shop owner: 9mm ammo ‘has a shelf life of about 5 minutes’
A San Francisco gun shop dealer said keeping 9 millimeter ammunition on store shelves is pretty much a lesson in futility.
“It used to take us a month to sell 5,000 rounds,” he said, in Breitbart. “Now we go through that in a week — when we can get them.”
His story is being repeated throughout the United States — and not just by gun store dealers. Wal-Mart retail has reported challenges keeping shelves stocked of certain ammunition, and police departments are struggling, too, Breitbart said.
Ammunition manufacturers, meanwhile, say they have expanded operations and are making bullets around the clock.
