    Historically, in my experience, .380 is either a) expensive or b) purchased only at gun shows.

    I had a Colt Government .380 BUG for like a year and I think I shot it <100 times due to the high price of ammunition, and always had the same Speer JHPs for carry ammo in it. Obviously, I never shot any of that.

    .380 really isn't that expensive - it's just super hard to find right now.

    Saw some at WallyMart the last time I looked there (Wisconsin Rapids, WI). Haven't really been looking too hard, although I should pick up a box or two. Feeling the need to get me out to the range again.

    NONE of our distributors have any - and haven't had any for quite some time.

    we bought a case from cabelas at $25/box of 50. we wont even sell it to shooters, only to customers who purchase a sig p232 from us, and even at that we will only sell 1 box. the rest is on reserve for private lessons and chl qualifications.

    Have to agree. It's certainly cheap to live here these days, though.

    Returning to the topic, just returned from a W-Mart run. Couple boxes of .357, one box of .45. Every other pistol round is vacant. There's still some boxes of 7.62x39 and .223, but it's still priced over and above what I can bring myself to shell out. Maybe I'll check some of the other stores in the area tomorrow.
