So my wife shot up all her 4 boxes of 38 special and Fleet and Farm and the local gun shop is out of 38 special. Did the world eat up all the Remington or Winchester 38 special ? Have others noticed this?

Yes. For weeks now my LGS has had nothing but rat shot for 38 Special.

Ammunition is rare these days. In any caliber.

It seems small pistol primers are also non existent.

Here it is a month later and there is still no .38 SPL available. Bullets are drying up and some of the best reloading pistol powders are no where to be found. It's only going to get worse the closer to the election we get. Then if Biden should win (God forbid) then it will even be worse if possible then now with ALL ammunition. So if you don't have it now it's most likely far too late to get any now unless one is extremely wealthy. Oh I just found a box of .38SPL ball for $49.95 for the box plus $15 shipping. Glad I reload.
