    Scheels All Sports was doing the same thing, when my wife bought her new gun she could buy a 100 round box of WWB that they held in back for new gun purchasers, but they have since ran out of supply so havent' been able to offer it buyers now. I thought it was a pretty good deal considering how hard it is to find ammo.

    I was at Gander Mountain yesterday in Spring, Tx. and bought 400 rounds of Federal 45 acp without any hassel or questions. Must have been a store policy there. Also, capitalization is your friend, just saying.

    I never knew CCI sold 375R bricks of 22. Is this something new?

The other one is always out.

    The GM in WPB, FL, had plenty of ammo--except for 9mm--last weekend, with a limit of 5 boxes and a sizeable chunk of your wallet. My wallet is neither that big nor that desparate.

    Took a friend to GM just last week to purchase a new handgun. No 9mm ammo on the shelf, but the salesman said he could sell him up to four boxes of 50 with the purchase. My buddy only wanted two, but those other two went on his ticket!!! (Remington FMJ $14.99 for a box of 50.)

    I don't think it's unreasonable to hold over a few boxes for those purchasing new handguns.

    I'm surprised Gander Mountain has guns to sell, when I ran through there looking for ammo the gun counter only has a few used guns and a couple of new ones. One Saturday I was in there it looked like the jewelry counter at the mall on Christmas Eve, about two employees and people three deep waiting. One time I was able to buy ammo at GM, it was bulk .40 S&W ammo, 250 rounds $110.00. Fortunately I have found a store that seems to have ammo every time I go, prices are high, American Eagle 40 S&W $22.50 per 50 and American Eagle .45 for $29.95 per 50. What I save on gas by eliminating my 3-4 times a week 4 store search justifies the higher price.

    i got 1,000 rounds of 9mm. (Rem) there, about 2 weeks ago for $250.00
    I bit high compared to pre-scarcity prices when I could get the same amount online for $200 or $210 but still not $500/case like some prices I'm seeing.

    When I first read the OP i was sort of miffed but in retrospect it does make sense for them to hold ammo for gun buyers. Otherwise they may not be selling too many guns. I still think their prices are too high.

    I don't have a problem with a gun shop holding back some ammo for purchasers of new firearms. I was at a shop a couple of years ago where a customer was purchasing a new .380 and the clerk told him they didn't have any ammo for it except for a couple of boxes of self defense rounds. I felt sorry for the customer! I certainly would not want to buy a new gun and not be able to buy some ammo for it at a reasonable price to shoot it and break it in. And I sure as heck can't affored to "practice" with self defense rounds!!! A few, yes, just to ensure they function, but I sure couldn't afford a steady diet of them for practice shooting!

    Not sure, but the CCI "AR Tactical" .22 LR ammo that shoots accurately in my 10/22s comes in 375 round boxes.

    The GM by my house has 500 handguns, and even more rifles/ shotguns currently in stock! Little light on Glock pistols though.
