    SCORED !!!! : Ammo for ammo

    So i picked up two boxes of 9mm ar normal prices from dicks and traded them for 2 boxes of .40 cal..... come to find out the guy sold his .40 and actually had 275 rounds of .40 that he wanted to offload. So I picked up 275 rnds of .40 for the princely sum of 75 bucks.... oh and in the lot was a 50 rnd box of winchester ranger .40 cal ....yeaahhhhh buddy !

    Dicks is selling ammo again? I called the one near me a few months back and they said they weren't selling anymore handgun ammo and it was Company Policy.

    Maybe the guy on the phone was just being a tool..

    yep...def a tool. The guy at my local dicks said they stocked fri night and they even had 10 550 rond boxes of 22, as well as every major revolver and semi caliber. Apparently this was the first time they had full shelves since last summer. They were cleaned out by sat evening save the 2 boxes of 9mm and some 22 lr shot shell ammo

    Dicks and Cheaper than Dirt both did the same thing last December after the Sandy Hook shooting, caved to a fear about the anti-gun crowd, took things off the shelf, swore they'd never sell those evil black rifles or that bad ammo again ..... just to try to look politically correct.

    I doubt I'll ever walk into a Dicks again.

    275 Rnds? You're excited? LOL

    Sounds like 40-60 mins at the range.

    Now 500 rnds of .40 for $160...That will excite me...still; a good price for you.

    Getting better? Let's hope so. I've seen a tiny bit of improvement but we'll see how it goes in the coming months.

    Good score. Was the 50 rds of Winchester ranger on top of the 275 rds or was that part of it. Things are definitely getting better. Some of the overpriced 9mm online is in stock for more than 10 minutes. I still saw that bulkammo had some 1000 rd lots of 9mm for $750 but I passed because I thought that was a little too much.

    75 cents a round a wee too much?? Me thinks you're right Kemo Sabee

    Wasn't it Dicks that renigged on the Black Friday AR 15 sales and refused to honor them after Sandy Hook?

    I will never step foot in Dicks Sporting Goods again.

    I am in MO, and yesterday afternoon I picked up 2 50 round boxes of 9mm AE FMJ 115 gr at Bass Pro. I wasn't expecting to see any 9mm...but I turned a corner to the ammo shelf...and all I could do is stare for there must have been at least 25 (or more) boxes of that AE 9mm ammo. I already have a decent stash, but would like some more to shoot regularly and to have on hand to prove my next gun purchase. I might have to swing past Bass Pro on the way home tomorrow and see what's left.
