    So to drift off target for a second. (All pun jokes and critiques welcome) All of those that have subscribed to the "9mm is just as good as a .45, with modern ballistics and bullets" school what do you say to folks who only have this lower end ammo, the 115 grn 950 fps ammo? I know most of you who carry a 9mm are smart forward thinking people. (I liked you repair, blanton) Anyway, I got an order in just before prices exploded. I ordered a case of federal 9mm +p+ 115 grn and when my order came from targetsportsUSA I received a case of federal HST 124 grn +p instead. When I called, the guy said be happy I got anything as the initial selection was long gone and that I was probably a good customer, so I got the HST instead. That same case of HST is now listed for $800.

    Wasn’t a necessity, and not the best price. Just wanted a few extra to add to my stash. It puts me around 2000 rounds of 9mm. Should be getting 1000 rounds of Sellier & Bellot 230 gr .45 fmj ammo from SG ammo this Wednesday for .36 per round. Just like to stay around 2000 rounds for 9 & 45

    Now that’s some funny stuff right there. No application for factory ball ammo? I reload and I can think of an application, hummm how about shoot it at paper targets and make a day of it.

    I haven't bought much ammo since the panic hit here a while back. However, I did find some Fed AE 124gr fmj 9x19 ammo today at a local place for 14 bucks per 50rds. Only thing was, they limit it to two boxes per customer. Ugh.

    When ammo returns to the shelves, I’m willing to bet prices won’t return to what they were prior to this crisis.

    Sorry, but I just don't feel like taking the time to search it out.

    They will return. Soon after people refuse to pay higher prices for overpriced ammunition.

    This is why one should ALSO buy a box or two every time you go to the sporting goods store to buy a new pair of tennis shoes, a bag o' socks, a fishing shirt, a cooler, a bicycle chain, etc. The system actually works quite well and you won't have to expose yourself to price-gouging jackassery.

    BUY more ammo crap i am waiting for the shooting to start so we can use up all we have rat holed.I am not wasting good ammo popping stupid balloons or water jugs filled up with Demo crat kool-aid, or paper targets. I already know how to shoot and can hit what i aim at.

    So will keep it to shoot for the Zombie hordes. But to buy more now. i have to use the stock piles first.
    And when some complain they ran out tough beans you wasted 10,000 rounds last year plinking chit.

    You did win the stupid award....

    time now not to waste but to wait. And all those carcasses you pile up grab that stash also. You will be set.
    I guess war and other conflicts. Some have not caught on yet.
    Life has always been tough, And more so if they have not figured it all out by now... 0c383078ff9deaf995aa889246ec69e4.jpg

    I'd keep your distance from this gal. She obviously has the Mumps.
