Lines for ammo long at Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Ontario

•, Monica Rodriguez
 The Ontario Convention Center was busy with some people arriving and others leaving with such purchases as walking sticks to firearms cases. But of all the items available, ammo was at the top of many shopping lists.

At one point, a line to purchase ammunition was snaking around the exhibit hall, said Bob Templeton, the owner of the gun show. It was taking about three hours for shoppers to make their way to the head of the line, he said.

Art Sheppard of San Jacinto bought magazines for an AR-15 rifle and some other items. He wanted to buy ammunition but the line was about two hours long at that point and Sheppard wasn't interested in investing that much time.

Dennis Mahan of Hesperia purchased ammunition of three different calibers.

"I'm just stocking up," he said. "It's in such short supply at my local store."
