Noticed the ammo shelves almost empty today with a sign posted "all ammunitiom sales final". Anyone have any knowledge on the matter?
And he is right can order until one is blue in the face it will make no difference right now. Plus CT corporate wants out of firearms and ammo per their memo of 2018 and all corporate owned stores have stopped but most CT are private owned so still up to the owner to do as they please. New owner that sees the old memo and agrees no more ammo in storeThe guy at Bridgewater CT said their ammo shipments are almost non-existent. Just can’t get it. Some smaller shops around here still have a fair bit, but not like it used to be.
The older stuff has probably just always been there and never sold before or after these shortages we are seeing now.For what its worth, I was in the Halifax Army Navy store on Agricola St. today and they had a fair selection of ammo compared to some places I've seen around here. Looked like they had some of the older less common calibres.
Didn't have .303 British though.
Thanks for the reply. They sure did at one time for years before and during the outdoor store and covid plus they still have over 400 ammo related items not taken off their web page to be cleaned upThe main store in Ft Mac doesn't sell ammo. They have a totally separate outdoor store that is like a mini Cabelas. Actually they stock more long guns than the Cabelas in Edmonton I was in last weekend and had more ammo and supplies. Picked up a couple hundred Hornady 6.5 140gn ELD-Ms a couple days ago at Can Tire.
I've been buying them there consistently for the last two years at regular prices while watching them sell at auction for double and triple. They have gone up to $65 from $49 in the last year.
