Threats by some lawmakers to implement tougher gun laws has people rushing to stock up on guns and ammo.
The reaction has left the shelves, once full of ammunition, bare in some places around the Mid-South. Some gun owners are facing a tough choice between something they love and their pocketbooks.
Ammunition manufacturers can't keep up with the public's demand for their product making some ammo like gold right now to gun owners.
Until manufacturers can catch up, the hunt for ammo could be more difficult than the hunt for the actual game.
The ammo shortage is also hitting law enforcement. The Tennessee Highway Patrol is still waiting on rifle and shotgun ammo that was ordered in November 2012.
