    I found ammo!

    No, not a wally world...

    After checking every store that normally carries .45 & 9mm ammo within 50 miles of home and finding nothing, I finally found a store with shelves full of it!

    Saturday was a really nice and warm day. So after work I decided to go for a cruze in the country. I ended up way up north, about 20 miles from the Canadian border, in almost the middle of North Dakota. The town was a tiny little place, and the store it's self had a laughable name: "The He Store." But the ammo shelves were full of anything a guy could want. They even have a crap load of primers too, which I hear are hard to find too.

    So the trick for those running low seems to be to get away from the cities. Way far away. Of course not all little towns have a store that would sell guns and ammo. But if you can find one, it might pay off.

    Great idea, I never thought about that. I'll have to try it.

    I found 3 boxes of .22lr at Wally World, and a bunch of 12-gauge. Since I have use for neither, I was disappointed. But they told me that 9mm and 45 were on order from the warehouse, just have to check back daily.

    Wish we had a He Store here.

    Great that you found ammo!

    I can find it also, but the prices are so jacked up that I'd have to sell my soul and firstborn just to afford it.

    It's bordering on being criminal.

    This ammo thing sucks right now. It's taking the fun out of it and making it seem like work just trying to find what you want

    I agree it is practically criminal. What can we do?
    If we want the price to be reasonable again and ammo to be more abundant we all need to stop hoarding it. You guys go first...

    Weird, my buddies are having the opposite experience. We can't find any locally in a town, but they are having luck in the major cities. Who knows........

    I can't find any at Walmart...on occasion at Academy Sports, however the small Mom and Pop shop about 15 minutes from me is always stocked. Their prices are more expensive but I don't mind paying it as they are the "little-guys" and I am happy to support small businesses (I owned one for 5 years). I have also found ammo at local pawn shops that sell guns, however their prices are a lot more expensive than the other places I mentioned.

    Sejune,

    Which Mom & Pop is that? I can't find any thing I need at A&B most of the time. I promise to only buy a couple of boxes (of each caliber).

    The trick is to NOT post such great info! Although it is great news

    Lots of small towns around.....time to start driving around. I would like to find a small town that likes to save .380 in the back storeroom.
