At the gun show today talked to an ammo dealer I've done business with before. He said that right now Wolf is only selling him two cases a month! Which, of course, disappear as soon as he sets it out. He can get no 9x18mm from either Wolf or Brown Bear.
According to him: Syria ordered a billion rounds from Russia, and Venezuela ordered the same number. So that doesn't leave much to be sold to us lousy capitalists in the U.S.
Gee, I wonder if Putin got cash in hand for these massive sales to an old socialist ally and a new commie ally? Or is he taking partial payment and promises?
And I wonder how much of Venezuela's economy got promised to Russia for the ammo & arms?
