Roger! I just sold off my rifles due to the fact I'm not paying $1 a round in this current climate. I had less than 1k rounds of .223 left, and you can shoot that up in 2-3 trips to the range. I might get another rifle in a year or two when all this madness blows over, but we're going to be seeing ammo shortages for the next 6-12 months easy imho.
However, shotgun shells appear to be in full supply! ;P
