    819739D6-9EF2-4E05-97E7-4EB4D1F0F1D3.jpeg So my local academy gets a truck Sunday Tuesday and Thursday. Today they did it differently to spread the love I guess and limited what you could get. But I got a little not a lot.

    My Academy never has anything. I stop by after work 3 times a week because it’s on my way home but they never have anything. I asked one of the gun area employees and he told me it’s gone as soon as it’s put out. People stalk them and it’s gone within minutes. Craziness. Great score!!

    Give that employee your ph# and an extra bill for his time to chat with you.

    That’s how I found out the times that the trucks come in. I might have tipped the little guy working 20 bucks one day and now I see the whole spread sheet before it comes in haha.

    Yes sir I did.I can’t wait for it to get here.I also have 300 more not so decent rnds I got from one of the post for ammo and I won auction on GB for 300 rnds of MAXX TECH JHP. Picked up 6 9mm ETM 10 rnd mags too. So I should be good for a little bit.

    Here in Vegas my local spot gets ammo pretty regularly.

    It’s priced high, but not too crazy.

    I'm stocked up better then most for 9mm, .45acp, .40, .41, .38S, 10mm, .357, .38SW, and 5.56.

    When this kicked off I had 0 .22 though. So over the last month or so I've been keeping an eye out at Walmart whenever I did need to run in. I've picked up a box or two here and there. This morning I picked up the two 525ct boxes. 20201021_155554.jpg

    My local Wal Mart is absolutely empty of any .22, .223, 9mm or .45 every time I check. Last time this happened the employees were buying it all and reselling it. I did just buy 800 rounds of Wilson Combat 135 grain reloaded 9mm ammo for just over .40/round. Given the current state of affairs I thought that was okay. When its in stock Freedom Munitions is getting .65/round for new 9mm and .60/round remanufactured, plus shipping. I am afraid that in the future I will be lucky to get pellets for my air guns.

    Walmart stopped selling pistol ammo last December. They clearanced it out and I bought a decent amount of .38Sw and .357 then.

    Keep checking in for the .22 ammo though. I hadn't seen any there in awhile and then 1 day I was walking by and glanced over and they had a couple boxes. Then the one by my work had some. After that there was a drought until this morning when I picked up the 2 big boxes.

    They keep on punching haha. Had tons of 5.56 green tip 200 rnd boxes and no limit what you could buy. I ran out of cash buying my 9mm B387C34E-E81D-41F2-AAAE-DD8C17370D20.jpeg

    I can’t remember I have the receipt in the truck I’d have to look. It was better the price I paid on GB

    I picked up 200 rounds of Lawman 124 grain today, $14.99 a box. I’ve taken to buying ammo when I see it for a decent price or what I think isn’t bad. I have 1K rounds of the Sig 45 ammo that will be here tomorrow and I haven’t shot a 45 in awhile.

    Reloading is a good thing!
    A hedge on ammo pricing and availability
    in times like these.
    What would you figure a lot of 1200 .45’s cost these days?
    If you could find them?
