atta boy, Chromie,

sometimes i wonder to myself, IF my CC would allow it, if i would ever buy
a case of ammo.

haha, probably will never find out. just ordered 3 bricks of cheaper ammo
which should hold me for a month ?? just to replenish what i have been
burning up recently,

Rico....

aaahhh, Chromie,

if just breaking in a bbl dont worry 'bout the wind. you just wanna blast some
ammo. but you can keep track of how much ammo ya got just going by your daughters age, lol, yea, you dont have a whole lot of ammo, just like me, only a few thou, but i aint worried 'bout it, have to order on-line anyway, when i can,

Rico....

the Brown Truck dropped off a case of CCI's here today. There is still ammo to be had for those that don't mind ordering online.

bricks and money

I went to Gander Mountain last week. I bought two bricks of Federal Spitfire for $24.99 each as I was walking out the door they changed the price to 39.99

I then the real hedge on inflation in the future will be a stock pile of...

well, my CC is usually in jeorpady, but,

i like to do some window shopping at my fave ammo vendors. then i create
a "wish list". when it is time to order, i go thru the list and figure out just
what i want and what i need, lol, kind of a fun game for me.

usually strictly ammo, some xpensive, some cheap, try to keep a balance
btwn the two,

yea, 99.9% of my ammo purchases are on-line, and have to pay for shipping,
but if i order from the shop, their prices are inflated enuff to off-set the
shipping cost and i know i will get what i order. sometimes the shop is
"iffy" whether i or they can get it or not. like Aguila, they cant get ANY,
sooooooo...........

Rico....

Up here in Washington, we've also had the insane ammo shortage. Within a 10 mile radius from my apartment, we have a Cabela's, Sportsmens Warehouse, 2 Walmarts, and 2 Big 5's. They have all been near wipedout of thier ammo supplies. I did pull into one of the Big 5's on the way home tonight on the way home, and their stock has been replenished. Definitely a good sign. Tomorrow on the way home I'll be stopping in at Sportsmens Warehouse to see if their shelves have filled in a bit too.
