    I was in a local gun shop this morning and saw, wonder of wonders, that they had plenty of Magtech .380! It's out there; apparently just not at any Walmart in the country.

    Thanks for the info. I downloaded the ORM-D... label off the web.

    I finally found some, just ordered 3 boxes online, and I feel like it was a pretty good deal at $15.99.

    Double Tap Ammo has .380 ammo in stock. I just bought 100 rounds of Double Tap 90 gr. Gold Dot's in .380. They also had plenty of FMJ's and other JHP's.

    Where did you find them at online? I just got a P3AT today and had to pay a buck a bullet for the last 40 the store had, not even enough to break in my gun...

    but at least I was able to find a gun...

    although without bullets, I don't know how good they are...

    This coupled with the sudden explosion of pocket .380s on the market has led to .380 becoming very scarce. I used to be able to walk into the 3 Walmarts in my area and walk out with several 100 round boxes WWB of .380, but all they have are bare shelves now.

    Thumbs down Come on people...

    I just went to a very popular online gun vendor that recently started a online auction section. Won't mention and buding names but you can figure it out. There is a box of Winchester white box 380 round nose currently at 48.00 dollars... I mean come on people... We are fueling our own dang fire. Not even for the best box of hornady taps in 380 would I spend that kinda money. Were building our own gun ban because no one will be able to afford to shoot as long as it is 48 bucks for a box of cheap practice plinkers. I had to pay 20 bucks for a box of pmc the other day but it was jhp and it a block of 50 so not bad I suppose.

I shot the 50 rounds of 380 today with no problems and I still have about 200 rounds of other ammo left in 380. I think I am going to place another order of 1000 rounds of 380 with them this week. The price is $260.00 for 95gr FMJ. With the scarcity of 380 even if you have to wait five weeks it may not be bad.
    Crap, yall actually shooting your 380 ammo? If I can find it, It aint gettin shot.
