The buzz in the shooting industry varies. Some say there could be relief in sight by late summer or perhaps fall. Others say it will be the end of the year or sometime in 2014 be-fore things improve. There is no certainty.The Southern also had a sidebar attempting to explain some of the regional and national drivers behind the shortage.

Some analysts? The trend's been noted for some time, and clearly predates the current round of marketplace ammo shortages.
