    Looks like ammunitiontogo has 9 mm in stock. Yeah, it's brown bear fmj. Oh well.

    Any way, have retards reached their hoarding capacity?

    Gay. That's all my local china-mart had too. I bought their last box, and two of the three last boxes of 22 LR.

    I think it's going to start getting easier to find ammo. I've got 1200 rounds of 9mm WWB, but I'm by no means hoarding. I'm using 500 a week.

    Learn me of the Bear brand ammo. I have Winchester ammo right now. Is Bear brand worth getting in regards to jams?

    Local Bass Pro Shops was out of EVERY kind of 9mm this evening when I went to pick some ammo up. I did find 9mm shotshells ("pest control"). Thought I'd try a few of those out to see what they do. Picked up 200rd of .223 UMC JHP and some .22LR for my little one's Cricket. Guess we'll do a little plinkin' this weekend.

    It's got to be pure shit, but you can get some good clearing and cleaning practice out of it.

    Went to academy last night. No 9 mm, no 40, a few boxes of 45. Blargh.

    I've never run the brown bear, but silver bear in .223 has been pretty decent. I had one round that was out of spec and really jammed up the gun. I almost had to take it to a gunsmith.

    It was the 62 gr SP i believe, and it was actually pretty accurate at 200m.

    I shot a few hundred rounds of brown bear 9 mm last month and it was surprisingly fine. Little smoke, little gunk in the gun, and no jams
