EDIT: Normally before this madness started, I would shoot 400 rounds total a week at the range. Usually 9mm, some 45 and 22. Now I am stuck with just 22 unless I can find 9mm. For me, kinda pointless to go shooting at the range with 100 rounds. I will save it till I get 400 rounds.

Also, I always have at least 2 mags full of home defense/carry rounds for my 9mm, 40, and 10mm, and 45. Needless to say I do not waste that at the range except every year when I rotate ammo and function check. Hell, right now finding Glock 20 15 round mags is almost impossible. All I want are 2 extra.
I was at a gun show this weekend in Pittsburgh. It was a madhouse. Everything was priced high, even handguns. Ammo was insane. A box of Tul/Wolf ammo was selling for $9.00 a box of 20 at the cheapest. Wal-mart sells the same stuff for about $4.85 a box, or at least did.

I saw some ARs going for 2.5-3k. I didn't see a single AK for under $1200. Unreal. Even handguns were expensive. Bersa T380 were going for $320+ (I one years ago for $225). LCPs were upper 300s. And no one would budge on prices because they were getting what they asking for.
