‘I’ve never seen it like this:’ Jacksonville gun shop manager breaks down factors leading to ammo shortage

2020 was a big year for gun shops across the nation.

Nearly 5 million Americans bought a firearm for the first time in 2020, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

Three weeks into the new year, there are no signs of stopping — and some Jacksonville gun owners have noticed it’s harder to get their hands on ammunition.

According to a survey taken by NSSF, at various gun stores, 40% of sales in 2020 were to people who have never previously owned a gun.

Action News Jax’s Courtney Cole spoke to management at Greenacres Sporting Goods to talk about what’s leading to the ammo shortage.
