    After a bit of a hiatus from shooting regularly I needed to prep for my CHL certification.

    Father's a member at a local range and gets a discount on Ammo but it's still higher priced than other places. I borrowed some from him and went through 200 rnds of 45 acp and 200 rnds of 9mm luger. CHL cert went just fine.

    Is there a decent place to order online that isn't sold out right now? I know Cheaper than Dirt is in Ft Worth and I might see if I can make a day trip out there in a couple of months. But if their online store is sold out I don't want to make the trip and come home empty handed.

    Any suggested online stores for ammo that you guys regularly order from?

  3. Finding ammo online is really hit or miss these days. What are you looking for?

    Good luck finding 9 or 45. Even rifle rounds are hard to find. It's about checking sites every few days. It's about all you can do... or buy the ammo and wait for it to ship.

    Just plinking stuff. PMC or Federal probably since that's typically the cheapest stuff to shoot at the range.
     
  7. I meant what caliber? 9mm and .45?

    what about (sorry to thread jack here) .223/5.56 ?
     
  10. You guys are basically both out of luck.

    Hit up local places if you need ammo, but be ready to pay more than you could get it for online, if you could get it online.

    Your best bet is to hit walmart each day and see if they are getting any in.

    You're in Little Elm ... The walmart at 423 and El Dorado is getting ammo each day, but you need to get there pretty quick as they haven't placed any limits on how many boxes you can purchase... it goes quick.

    The walmart in Denton gets quite a bit of ammo and you might actually be able to buy some since they are limiting purchases of handgun and bulk .22lr to one box per person per day.

    why is that I ordered gear from them and I have yet to have a bad experience...care to share?
     
  19. They raised their prices massively since the election. They were looking to sell M855 for like $1.12 a round.
