Best garage sale deal,,, EVER!



Log in to see fewer ads
So there I was,,,
Just about an hour ago,,,
Surfing the web minding my own business.

I noticed I had a text from a friend,,,
Seems he was at a garage sale that had some .22 ammo for sale.

Back during the Obama Ammo Drought,,,
Someone (CCI maybe) was marketing 16 100-packs of mini-mags in those nice plastic ammo cans.

I remember buying one at Wal Mart during that time,,,
If I recall correctly I paid either $105.00 or $109 per ammo can.

Anyways my friend was anxiously waiting for me to text him back,,,
He's staring at not just one of those cans,,,
But 3 ammo cans of Mini Mags.

He wants to know if $100.00 per ammo can is a good deal,,,
And if it is a good deal do I want to go halves on one.

I told him if he has the cash to buy all 3 of them for me,,,
I'll deliver cash money to him later this afternoon.

I'll sell them back to him at $6.25 per 100 rounds,,,
As many or as few as he wants until it's gone.

He stayed at the garage sale literally sitting on the cans,,,
While his wife went to the ATM for cash.

All he can afford to spend is $50.00,,,
I'll be getting the rest of it for $250.00.

So I'm scoring 4,000 rounds of my favorite .22 ammo,,,
For the absolutely fantastic price of only $6.25 per 100 round pack.

I'll pick them up this afternoon,,,
He did say he had a use for the ammo cans.

I'll be giving the cans to him as I don't need them,,,
Along with a Mazzio's Pizza Feast gift certificate for his family.

I'm so tickled that I'm grinning from ear to ear.

I'm very glad that I decided to wait until this evening to do yard work,,,
If I would have missed that text and the ammo deal,,,
I would be sobbing in my corn flakes.

Aarond

Nice score. It's funny, it wasn't long ago that we were paying about that same price for them in the stores.

In todays world you have buy ammo when ever you see it! If you wait it will be gone. When you see a good deal you have to jump on it now! Good Job. Enjoy shooting that ammo knowing that it didn't cost you an arm & leg.
