How to Find Ammunition Supplies Using AmmoSeek.com

For the past three weeks, the most-read article on the Daily Bulletin has been a discussion of how ammo/reloading component shortages will persist well into 2021. So we know you guys are concerned about finding ammunition. With demand pushed by widespread worries over social unrest and the prospects of radical gun control laws, Ammo is definitely in short supply. The high demand is also driven by new gun owners: “NSSF estimates that 8.4 million people bought a firearm for the first time in 2020. That’s 40 percent of all purchases.” (Source: NSSF.org)

Certain types of ammunition are in short supply — particularly 9mm pistol ammo, .40 SW, and 12-gauge shotshells. And even .22 LR ammo is becoming harder to find, so you may want to stock up. Thankfully, if you shop around a bit, you can still find most types of defensive ammunition and .22 LR rimfire ammo, though prices are considerably higher than in 2019.

Better Pistol Shooting — Keep Both Eyes Open

One eye or two? That’s the question that confounds some pistol shooters, particularly during slow fire. When shooting one-handed, some bullseye pistol shooters use a piece of tape or paper on one lens of their shooting glasses to obscure their non-dominant eye. That way they can get a more precise sight picture. However, when shooting two-handed, it’s almost always better to shoot with both eyes open. And if you are doing a “move and shoot” session/match, you’ll surely want to have both eyes open.

Champion pistol shooter Doug Koenig says he always shoots handguns with both eyes open: “To me it’s very simple — I wouldn’t drive my car with one eye closed. I wouldn’t walk around the house with one eye closed. To me, it’s all about your vision, your depth perception.” Doug adds that you definitely need both eyes open to transition quickly from target to target.

With both eyes open you’ll have better depth perception and peripheral vision. You will also be able to transition from target to target more quickly. In a timed, multi-target stage, you’ll want to move your head/eyes to the next target right after you break a shot. You’ll find that you will then reflexively move the handgun on to the new target when you swing your vision on to it. Don’t linger on the target you just shot — move to the next.
