It must be noted that’s data do not provide an all-encompassing overview of Americans’ recent ammunition buying habits. Various federal, state, and municipal laws have made unable to ship ammunition to residents of Alaska, California, Hawaii, and Massachusetts, as well as Chicago, IL, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Furthermore, also sells non-ammunition goods including apparel, flags, and firearm accessories, although ammunition does account for the overwhelming majority of the retailer’s sales.

“We noted a similar surge in demand for ammunition during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Alex Horsman, marketing manager for “As neoconservatives and the mainstream media both began calling for American intervention in the Russian invasion, wary firearm enthusiasts sensed that the products they need to enjoy their favorite hobby could soon become scarce.

“Many Americans predict that a war effort would significantly limit the amount of ammunition available to consumers. Others fear that the Biden administration, via executive fiat, will somehow limit private sales of ammunition under the pretext that those products must be shipped overseas in support of the Ukrainian resistance. After all, who knew the CDC could unilaterally put a nationwide moratorium on evictions for almost a year and a half before the pandemic? The Biden administration has demonstrated an eagerness to chip away at the Second Amendment when and where it can, and many Americans anticipate that a ‘temporary’ ban on ammunition sales would be anything but.

“Whether the recent spike in demand for ammunition reflects Americans’ apprehensions about potential scarcity, their mistrust of those in power not to use a crisis to advance their own political aims, or a combination of both, the outcome is the same: American gun owners want to stock up on ammo while they can.”
