GunBroker.com’s Large Selection Helps Counter Nationwide Ammunition Shortage

July 7, 2020 GMT

Kennesaw, GA - ( NewMediaWire ) - July 7, 2020 - Amid an ongoing surge in the sale of guns, rifles, pistols, and shotguns, nationwide stocks of ammunition have hit record lows in recent weeks. With a large inventory, however, online marketplace GunBroker.com has risen to the challenge of meeting user demand, saving the day for many unable to source ammunition in their area as local dealers’ reserves plummet.

“Sourcing appropriate ammunition when there’s a shortage can be incredibly difficult,” suggests a GunBroker.com spokesperson, speaking from the company’s headquarters in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Following record gun sales in recent weeks and months, sales of ammunition have also increased, to the point where demand has begun to outstrip supply significantly. Thankfully for many, GunBroker.com has this week reported a large selection for buyers amid shortages affecting many local dealers nationwide. The nation’s number one way to safely and securely buy and sell guns, rifles, pistols, shotguns, gun parts, and accessories online, GunBroker.com is now the world’s largest marketplace of its kind.

What’s more, as reserves of ammunition across much of the U.S. fall to almost nothing, the web’s favorite hunting, and shooting gear marketplace still reports a large reserve. “Despite the record increase in sales, we’re continuing to see user demand met,” suggests GunBroker.com’s spokesperson. “Right now, we have a deep catalog,” they add, “which is great news for many who have been unable to source ammunition in their area as local dealers’ reserves have plummeted.”

With gun sales at an all-time high amid unusual market conditions, it has ultimately fallen to the world’s largest online marketplace for firearms, accessories, and ammunition to help fill increasing demand, particularly for the latter. According to GunBroker.com, March, April, and May have all been record months for gun sales in the U.S.

Indeed, last month saw the third-highest number ever of completed background checks take place, as required to purchase guns and ammunition – a total of over 3.7 million. Despite resulting widespread local shortages of ammunition, stocks available via online marketplace GunBroker.com remain high, the Georgia-based business says.

Aside from GunBroker.com merchandise bearing its logo, GunBroker.com sells none of the items listed on its website. Third-party sellers list items on the site, and federal and state laws govern the sale of firearms and other restricted items thereafter. Ownership policies and regulations are followed, according to GunBroker.com, by using licensed firearms dealers as transfer agents.

Established in 1999, more than two decades on, GunBroker.com continues to attract countless five-star reviews from its millions of users, now more than ever. “With unusual market conditions having led to widespread shortages of ammunition across large swathes of the country, it’s been a frustrating time for many gun owners, both new and existing,” suggests a GunBroker.com representative.

“At GunBroker.com, however, we’re pleased to report,” they add, wrapping up, “that, via our marketplace channels, we continue to maintain a large supply of ammunition which is available safely and securely to GunBroker.com users across the U.S.”
