    100 miles from Portland coming from Seattle.........hmmmm.....bet a lot of folks can find it now! The word is out. Tomorrow, that 100 mile drive would be a wasted trip.

    Good! That should last you at least 10 minutes.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    This does raise a question that has come to mind lately. When is it recommended that we stop going from store to store looking for ammo. If we keep not locating the ammo we seek (9mm in my case) is this the point we should be ordering from online ammo sources.

    I have not found any 9mm ammo lately here in Vegas lately. At one point I was at the sporting goods counter and two other people were asking about ammo. They BOTH were looking for 9mm as well.

    At what point should we just "give up" and start ordering our ammo online? That's a question I have to start pondering on a serious level.

    What do you think?

    I've long since balanced my purchases between online and brick/mortar local sources. Have often had the bulk of my range rounds be quality reloads from shops that do this. Buying in bulk (2-5Krds a purchase) is a great convincer, for a shop.

    Recently, my balance has been swinging toward online. It's there. Tons of it. And you don't necessarily need to be paying huge premiums for it, either. Often, you simply need to respond quickly, to get great deals.

    What I do:
    • Get onto Cabela's, CheaperThanDirt, MidwayUSA, Able Ammo, Natchez, Ammunition To Go, and a few other sites.
    • Flag the key items to be notified about, when they come into stock.
    • Wait to be notified.
    • In the meantime, head to GunBroker and other online auction sites, searching for decent deals on bundles of ammo ranging from 250rds to 2000rds, depending on what I'm looking for. In 30mins, one can have 5000rds coming, instead of doing without, and it's very often (almost always, for me) less pricey than the local gun store's stash.

    Works very well, for me. YMMV.

    Nah. Those 3am toads who send invites to join them at "Ghetto Booty Wench dot com" aren't my sort. That sort needs to focus on buying more ammo, instead. Refer to prior post.

    Friday I bought 1,000 rounds of 9mm Winchester from Sportsman's Guide which was Backordered to July 20th. I figured that I might as well get in line.

    I checked my order yesterday and they are getting ready to ship 500 rounds now and the other 500 is still backordered with the July 20th date. I imagine I will get that before July 20th too!

    Good find! Economize and don't go and blow it all off. Practicing is good, but save as much as you can!
