    Same here but I'm saving it because I know what's coming.

    I just sold off a couple thousand rounds to my wife's boss and another guy in her office. And I did NOT price gouge them! As a matter of fact I'm throwing in 4 AR-15 magazines each as a surprise!

    So, I'm curious, if you don't mind, can you expand on what you know is coming?

    Sure, I am referring to Civil War, and it has actually already started.

    Remember, certain people in this country have threatened to, and I quote, "burn this MF down if President Trump is re-elected!".

    There's a reason even Democrats are buying guns and ammo right now!

    I hate to say it, but Hillary did say publicly that Biden should not accept the results of the election if Trump wins.
    Interesting times ahead.

    Well, everyone, here we are at the end of September and the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and "Creepy Joe Biden".

    How is your ammo search going, having any luck?

    You know I wish you all nothing but health and happiness in these very trying times!

    It's going to get worse, it is, because they are going to try to lock down our economy before November 3rd's election. You may want to start buying necessities now because they will become scarce in the next couple weeks.

    Take care of yourselves and your families and may God bless each and every one of you!

    Alan

    Hey, I warned everybody in August of last year, I'm sorry you're having trouble finding ammo.

    Keep looking, it's out there.

    Well stocked and continuing to add more 9mm and 223/5.56 if pre-COVID/peaceful demonstrator prices are found. Local Academy Sports receives ammo shipments on Tuesdays and Fridays. Good on primers too.

    I haven't short a gun in over three months. Not because of of Covid-19 or lack of ammo just have a lot going on right now. As soon as the weather allows, no doctor appointments and nothing else breaks I'm taking a day just to shoot my guns.

    My wife and I need to do the same thing but not because of doctor appointments and stuff. She works a lot and I'm a stay-at-home dad homeschooling two kids!

    Life is good though, I wouldn't change a thing!

    Got a little at Underwood, 40 rounds 140 Gr Extreme Penetrator 10 MM, 40 rounds 120 Gr Extreme Hunter 357 Magnum, and 100 rounds of 125 Gr Bonded HP (Speer) 357 Sig

    They did not have a lot of anything.

    Yeah, I learned my first day here, I don't even look at that thread I posted some badbadbad remarks in anymore. Anyone quotes me from there, I don't even look now.

    Stay away from doctors. Went to the dr for allergies found out I have high blood pressure. Started taking blood pressure meds and started having a pain in my chest and got sent to the heart doctor. Heart dr put me on the tread mill and found out I had arthritis. And it goes on but that's enough for now.

    As of this moment Bone Frog has 18 boxes of 9mm Blazer Brass for $35.00 a box . Yeah expensive but better than an empty gun .
    Also 124 grain HST at $55. per 50 box but you have to buy a 1k round case .
    Split it with friends .

    9mm under $20 a box. Cheapest I have found is some brand I never heard of, $33/50. I have seen it over $100/50, depending on what kind and brand. But yeah, anything under $20, IDC if it's FMJ or flat-nose or whatever. I will say though, don't bother looking for me because sub$20 boxes of 9mm (for 50 rounds) is like a friendly and understanding Lefty-Liberal Democrat - just a f****ng myth.

    Ammo is out there. I just found Fiocchi 9mm ball for $14 a box of 50 at a chain store in northern AZ. Limit was three boxes, so I bought three.

    I just order online. Just put in a order for 400 rounds 9mm @ $29 per 100. Could have got another brand @ $25 per hundred. Takes about 2 or more months for back order to fill. When I get it I place another order.

    I don't even bother looking on line any more most of what is offered is odd ball stuff I don't want. I just visit my LGSs once a week today I picked up 4 boxes of Golden Saber!

    As far as Underwood ammo goes I already had my Underwood stash in good order long before covid hit.
