Birmingham, Alabama -- On the day after Christmas, the wall racks at Hoover Tactical Firearms were almost bare; holiday customers had bought nearly everything. At the store's shooting range, anyone wanting to rent an AR-15 or similar rifle for target practice would be disappointed. There were a few rifles to borrow but no ammunition -- all sold out.

"There has been an unprecedented run on all of our AR platforms and 30-round magazines," says Robert Hawthorne, a firearms instructor at Hoover Tactical. "Ammunition -- all of the 5.56 and .223 is completely gone. Demand for the firearms and for the training has been through the roof. We've scheduled additional classes." Facebook Fark Furl
