Gun manufacturers are warning that the ammunition shortage is not going to end anytime soon.

While gunmakers keep turning out more and more guns, ammunition makers are struggling to keep up with the demand.

"It's widely known the ammunition shortages continue," Smith & Wesson CEO Mark Smith said. "There is still a lot of interest in firearms."

75% of the 1,800 people reported having issues buying bullets, and the lack of ammunition is changing the habits of gun owners.

Gun owners are spending less time at the range and planning fewer hunting trips.

"At some point, demand will certainly soften," said Rob Southwick, President of Southwick Associates. "However, frenzied purchasing and empty shelves often fuels further increases in demand. We do not see demand softening in the near future."
