Gun Range Dealing With Ammo Shortage


"If they tell you they're going to start banning cookies, people are going to go out and buy more cookies." Nathan Noble, Rockcastle Shooting Center

"I'm in constant contact with the ammo manufacturers. One of the biggest in the country had a $10 billion dollar backlog the last time i talked to him." said Nathan Noble of Rockcastle Shooting Center.

One of the biggest issues in America this year has been gun control. Though things may have become quieter the past few months, it hasn't stopped people from purchasing guns and ammunition. A recent report shows the cost of ammunition has gone up 15% just in the last three months.

Talk about precious metal. Gun store owners say one of the hottest items on any shelf, at any store right now is a round of nine millimeter ammo. Gun range owners says despite the shortage of ammo, business hasn't been impeded. It's seen a boom.

"In the first 40 days of 2013, we did more concealed carry classes then we did the entire year previous. Concealed carry classes are up about 300% for the year." added Noble.

Some just want to be protected, while others say they just want to exercise their constitutional right.

"If they tell you they're going to start banning cookies, people are going to go out and buy more cookies. Federal legislation is probably the largest contributor to people going out and buying ammo." said Noble.

No new legislation has been passed as of yet and gun owners say the boom in firearm sales is far from over.
