    Scored some 9mm HST

    Locally. That's the big deal.

    I usually spend my money at a small shop that is a LEO shop. Uniforms, badges, whatever a cop needs. Sweet prices on Smith guns, too. They do business with civvies as well. Kind of a word of mouth place, not on the map. I like 'em because they sell to civvies at VERY good prices. M&Ps, three mags, and night sights for 499. These guys rock.

    But they've been out of carry ammo since March. They may have gotten some in that was set aside for agencies, but none for the common folk. 9, 40, 45, no joy. Ball, yeah. Carry, no sir.

    Until today.

    They called me (I'm kinda like Norm from Cheers at this place) with the good news that they finally (13 months later) got some 9mm carry ammo in. HST and Gold Dot. So I snagged six boxes of HST. They also said that the coveted M&P 9c mags will be here soon as well. 26 bucks for a box of HST, and they get 24.99 for an M&P mag of any variety. That's why I like 'em.

    Sounds as though things may just be simmering down. That's the best news. Could it be that common sense (real kind, not Obama kind) is still alive in America? Amazing.

    Is this the 20 round or 50 round boxes?

    My local gun shop, that I trust, had told me that the 50rd boxes meant for LE sale are obviously great, but that the dealer could lose their ability to sell Federal ammo if they sold to to the civilian market, that they sign and agree to sell it to LE only. The 50rd boxes meant for the civilian market are not to the quality of the civilian 20rd or LE 50rd boxes, but not so blemished or under performing that they are considered factory seconds.. but that performance could be, COULD BE inconsistent.

    Just kinda what I was told by the LGS. On a related note, this LGS has both LE 50rd and civ 20rd boxes of HST in all calibers, and my local Gander Mountain also has the 20rd boxes..

    I see the 20 rds boxes of HST for the 9mm, 40 and 45 all the time at Academy Sports here in Texas. No +p, but they usually have mant boxes. I have noticed that the non +P is more available than the +P for many brands ans calibers.

    Your LGS guy is full of carp on all counts.

    These are 50 round boxes. 20 rounds for 22 bucks, or 50 rounds for 26 bucks.

    There will be no 20 round boxes.

    I recently ordered some Federal P45HST2 for $33 a box along with some practice ammo- Federal American Eagle 45 230gr FMJ-$23 a box for my S&W M&P 45C. I also ordered some Rem Golden Saber +P 124 gr for my Glock19--$14 for a box of 25. The only problem I had was finding ammo for my friends 25 cal. I went through Ammunition Depot and everything went smooth, plus every box of ammo was $10 cheaper than here in NYC.---Sturgis
