Gun and ammunition sales up, inventory low

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Gun and ammunition sales in the Baton Rouge area, just like around the country, are up, and for some stores, inventory is running low.

Gun and ammunition salesmen say they're having a tough time getting their hands on certain products. The shelves at Precision Firearms are stocked, but what you see is what is available.

Owners say they have enough ammo to last the first quarter of the year, but they can't predict beyond that.

"Those that are responding to inquiries, like [us], are saying expect delivery delays anywhere from 8 weeks to the end of the year," said Wade Duty, co-owner of Precision Firearms.

Duty says it appears manufacturers are not ramping up production because they're worried they'll get stuck with inventory they can't sell.
