    Wow this is honestly getting out of hand. Called the local gun shop to see if they got any .40 cal in stock, guy tells me yea we have the 250 bulk packs for $199.:rofl: I laughed at him and said ok thanks.

    How much longer is this bullshit going to continue???

    Prices aren't too bad at the local shop here, but they're limiting it to 2 boxes per customer of any caliber.

    until demand drops to meet supply.
    perfect storm. 2 wars soaking up not only the entire military bullet production capacity but some of the domestic and international commercial supply, plus for a while the what's it called, the mineral market prices were skyrocketing. plus the US public's panic buying. everyone's getting in on guns before big daddy obama and the UN ban all guns forever, so people who had guns are stockpiling, people are buying their "my first sony" evil black rifles, and they need ammunition, and they have no idea what ammo costs.

    it's not a good market for small players right now.

    I guess I should buy more locally. My local shop has plenty of PMC .40 available at $18/box right now.

    I'm actually having fun with the 12ga. and .22s

    I check a couple Walmarts each day (they are on my way home from work). On days when they don't have handgun ammo, I just add to my stash for the shotgun. I just picked up 30 slugs and 90 00Buck shells today on the way home. I'm stocked on .22 so I can shoot the AR, the 10/22, and the 1911. I love .22 conversions :cool:

    i've been shooting plenty of clays with my shotty and taking my .22 to the gun club but i miss shooting my other guns. i just refuse to pay some of these jacked up fuck ya in the ass prices that some places have right now, and finding ammo at walmart is like trying to buy a winning lotto ticket, it's 1 in a million it seems at this point.

    If Wal-Mart can't keep it in stock, that is a good sign that they have priced it too low.

    My coworker checks his Wal-Mart a couple times a week to buy pistol ammo.
