    Minnesota people: where can you get hollow point ammo in Twin Cities?

    Anyone? I tried two sporting goods stores and none available. Is there a place to get these that caters to the defensive carry crowd??

    Or is this a product of Minnesota law??

    No MN laws preventing ownership of JHP...it's just usually hard to find good stuff anywhere lately...

    Streichers is usually a good source, the Gunstop usually has some JHP in most calibers, Bills usually has some but is also usually reallly expensive...and WalMarts are getting some of the Winchester PDX1 ammo fairly regularly.

    Personally, I've been buying a lot of my carry ammo online now; Surplusammo.com has some good shoices in most calibers...

    Bets bet

    Bill's Gun Shop in Robinsdale. Bring your guns along they have two Indoor ranges there one for pistols and one for long guns. If you have a lot of x-tra cash you can rent a sub-machine gun to try out as well. They have lots of carry type weapons for rent so good place to check out something new.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I get most of my hollow points at cabelas in rogers just because it is close for me and they usually have a pretty good selection in stock.
    I LOVE ME SOME HK's!

    RIP Mike, miss you buddy!

    Cabela's in Rogers has been the best for in stock handgun ammo for me. They even have a selection of .380 JHP.
    My GLOCK goes BANG every time!

    Joe's Sporting Goods in St. Paul on Dale and Hwy 36 has/had some Gold Dot ammo in 9mm, and some other brands for other calibers. If I remember right, not a lot of varieties though.

    I have bought amo from streichers as well as wallmart. I picked up a box of remington UMC hollowpoints 100 count for $27.00. It works flawlessly in my glocks. Otherwise streichers has been very good to me on hollow points so far. Good luck on your search. What part of MN are you in ?
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.

    I tried Joes on 36 and Dale. Was looking for .380, maybe it was more a caliber problem than type problem.

    Next time I bring my own, maybe I'll even have a new gun by then.

    I stay near DT St. Paul periodically, and get out to Eden Prairie area and Roseville.

    I really like Double Tap, bought on line. Gold Dot bullets loaded hot for a decent price.

    Cabela's or Gander Mountain are your best choices, but I've always bought mine online.
