U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- “I need ammunition, not a ride”, powerful words spoken by Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in response to an offer of evacuation from US leaders. AMMO Inc. is taking President Zelensky at face value, offering up over one million rounds of ammunition in the fight against Russian invaders. Known for producing several popular brands of ammunition, and as the operator of Gunbroker, AMMO Inc. is no stranger to crises.
As of this writing, we are still awaiting acceptance of this donation from the Ukrainian government. If this deal goes through, it’ll be interesting to see if manufacturers in the private sector step up as well. If they do, we may see renewed shortages or price increases stateside as domestic ammunition production begins fighting the good fight.
