I'll say what I think I can. The rumor around Federal is talk of a General Dynamics purchase which isn't all too surprising being that they have already acquired ATK and have a strong presence in the area. Could be a slight blip in production but no big changes. Just a rumor worth what you paid for it.

That said the writing is on the wall that ammo sales are about to be radicalized. You're not going to drive to Walmart for your hunting load and make 5 other stops to get your handgun and sporting rifle ammo. Walmart will go from the #1 ammo retailer to zero.

This accidentally solves a long held business problem. People who shoot treat range ammo as a commodity. You'll be happy with Winchester white box 9mm and Federal XM193. Basically you go to Walmart and buy whatever's cheapest. Those days are gone.

But don't for a second think that Remington, Olin, and Vista don't want to sell direct to consumer and give you a case discount. If they could get a monthly subscription plan where you predict your monthly needs of 5.56 and 9mm because you shoot 3 gun and you know roughly how much you need. Presto the ammo companies know what the consumer wants and don't deal with Walmart (who I can attest will not share their sales and distribution data).

Go one step further and look at the catalogs of these ammo makers. Even at a Cabelas or Bass Pro you see maybe 5% of the options. As I write this my .308 scout gun is currently (safely locked) and loaded with Federal .308 150 grain Nosler ballistic tip meduim game ammo. You gonna find that off the shelf? Or did I need a Federal employee? This helps the boutique rounds you never found and helps makers that do custom stuff like a Hornady or Buffalo Bore.

This isn't far from reality. I'm sure any of the big ammo players would love to recommend for your rifle or pistol a cartridge for plinking, one for hunting, one for heavy wind, etc. And if direct to consumer comes around that's real easy.

Lots of change in store for this business.

‘SOLD OUT’: Arizona Gun Store Offers ‘Beto Specials’ on AR15s and AK47s

“I saw the comments that he made, and I was kinda like, ‘You know what: the Hell with this guy.’”

Boggs said O’Rourke’s made determined to sell more guns – even if it meant losing money on them. So, the next morning he announced his “Beto Specials” on AR15 and AK47 rifles on his store’s Facebook page:

Beto O'Rourke said "hell yes we're taking your AR's". Well Beto, we're discounting AR15's to such a low price that EVERY AMERICAN can afford one. How about the low low price of just $349.99? Yeah, that works. Available online only. Go to www.alphadogfirearmsaz.com and look for all our AR15 and AK47 deals under the BETO SPECIALS tab. Deals and discounts will be added fresh all day!

Alpha Dog Firearms was so overwhelmed with customers – selling 200 rifles in two hours – that Boggs had to post an afternoon update on Facebook:

Monthly Gun Sales Up 10 Percent Since Last September
Dem proposals may be driving surge


The surge in sales comes as Democrats running in the 2020 presidential primary have floated a variety of new gun control schemes. Their proposals have ranged from nationwide gun licensing, to bans on the sale of certain rifles, to outright confiscation. This push for strict new gun laws may be behind the rise in sales.
