    Finally found some 9mm ammo but not buying it.

    Its my day off so I've been searching the net and calling around. I went to Walmart this morning at 7am to see if the had any. None there again. You could tell they had received a shipment of ammo but no 9mm. Well I thought the one place I didnt think of was a Army surplus store about 30 minutes away. I called them. They have some in stock. Aguila 124gr fmj . I dont anything about Aquila , but get this $25 for a box of 50. You have to be kidding.

    I went to Academy when it opened this morning (line of about 30). The only 9mm they had was Critical Defense, no FMJs. I chose not to buy.

    Yea, 50 cents a round for import ball ammo... no thanks. Good call.
    I scored some UMC at Bass Pro over the weekend only because I got a tip from an employee that they were getting a shipment. It was $70 for the 250 round bulk pack which equates to $14/50.

    Seen a good bit of that around, maybe things are swinging back to at least "able to get something reasonable occasionally" status. I been 2 months w/o really finding anything, always we had it but was gone in a flash situation. Picked up UMC 250 packs in 9mm and 380 acp this weekend for similar prices.

    BassPro, last week had WWB 115gr 100ct boxes of 9mm for $25.99. I walked in just as they were opening the cartons. You could see the sharks circling in the water. It's a good thing I don't need any.

    That ammo is ok for plinking, but not at that price. Good call!

    Went by Sportmans Warehouse today and picked up 2 boxes of american eagle 9mm 14.99 each, not too bad at all. I don't blame you, I won't pay much more than this for target stuff.

    I have all the Hornady Critical Defense I need...and that I hope I never have to use. All I'm interested in is "range rounds" to stay proficient. Recently purchased a Ruger SR-22 so that I can fire .22 lr at the range, again for proficiency, at a much lower price. Only problem is that I can't find much .22 either.

    that is ridiculous good call on the not buying! my mom and her bf got lucky (cuz i told them) cabelas was selling a box of 50 for 14.99 so they both bought the 10 box maximum! 1000 rds for 300$ is a fair deal i believe
