    Yep, couldnt help meself. I missed last weekends gun show,:embarassed:, and had to get my fix. Only half the store was bare and there was some ammo and some reloading supplies. I bought the last 180 grain 30 cal bullets and a pound of winchester 296. They even had a couple "black" guns and prices didnt seem too outrageous. Theres still hope.:smile2:

    every gun shop i have been in lately is packed. some types of ammo is getting harder to find. the cheap ammo for target practice is very hard to find.

    Yeah 380 ammo is impossible to find. Good thing I bought a couple thousand rounds of 9mm before BO. Rifle ammo besides 7.62 and 223 seems ok. Ya sure do have to wait your turn now but nothing crazy. I did buy wallyworlds last box of Federal 550 bulk 22 ammo and last box of Fed auto match. there was plenty of the $7/50 22 ammo left. Shotgun stuff everywhere and had to resist buying last box of 44mag silvertips. Too much for me and I reload anyway. Would have been buying for the brass mostly anyway. I noticed all the cheaper brands of pistols were gone, keltec, bersa ... There were plenty of S@W stuff.

    I was in 4 stores yesterday in Ms. Picked up 25 lbs of shot at one. He has lots of stuff. next one was getting low. Last Stop they had my 17 HMR's($11.) so I picked up 3 boxs for it. They were selling guys like mad and were out of a lot of hand gun shells. Most stuff for reloading was gone also.
