(NBC News) — Gun stores across the country are experiencing an ammunition shortage as many people try to stock up during these uncertain times.

Industry experts say demand for guns and ammo has never been higher, with sales jumping some 300% in recent months.

The pandemic, coupled with nationwide protests and it being an election year, has created the perfect storm for gun and ammo sales.

Shotguns, AK-47s and AR-15s, along with handguns, are in high demand right now and becoming harder to find.

Concealed carry classes and permits are also in high demand right now.
