    I've found some .38 ammo available, but I've been looking for Remington Golden Saber for my model 15 S&W.. Found some last week at www.ammunitiontogo.com and had planned to buy it when I got home.. But it was unavailable by the time I left work and made it to the house. Can't find it anywhere else.

    That's funny how regional this supply problem is. Here I've had no problem with 38, but .45 has been an issue.

    My local Bass Pro Shop finally got some in, I bought 2/3-3/4 of what they had. Price was good. My problem with what was online, was most of what was available was SD which wasn't going to be cost efficient. .40, .45 & .357Sig abundant here. So when .38 was not on the shelves here (target rds, SD available) I was hoping it would be easier to find online.

    Regards,
    Josh

    Yeah, definitely a regional problem for some calibers. .45 ACP, .357 Mag, and 45 Colt are scarce in my area. Knew of the .45 ACP problem so I'm churning out as much as I can for my local gun shop. Was just alerted to them not having .357 Mag in stock in the last 6 months so I'm working on a few cases there, same with .45 Colt. 10mm and .380 brass are both impossible to find. When I find .380 brass it's OF brass and just as expensive as new. Oh for the days of .380 brass being $15/K.

    9mm and .40 have been plentiful and the local has been able to get Blazer .38 Spl easily. I'm basically loading 9mm and .40 for the website and .45, .357 Mag, and .45 Colt for the locals.

    What's fun is seeing the shelves bare at Walmart. I wait about a day or so and first thing in the morning my LGS is on the phone putting in an order for ammo from me.

    Try "Other" chain stores.

    I was at the local Walmart last week and of course they had no 38 Special ammo. There was a couple talking to another customer when I walked up to the ammo case. The couple was saying they couldn't find any practice ammo.

    I said they could try to get it online. They seemed surprised that you can get it online. I told them, "yes you can" and gave them a few websites, (Gerogia Arms, Able Ammo, and Ammo To Go, and Nazches (Spelling?).

    I also told them that most people don't realize that the Meijers department store two miles down the road sells ammo too.

    Hopefully they went there. They were looking for 9mm. When I checked Meijers a few days later they had lots of 9mm, in two or three different brands even. They also had 44 Mag, 45 ACP, 40 Cal. and 38 Special, so I bought two boxes of the 38. Price was a little higher than Walmart and more than online, before shipping.

    It is hard to find these days for sure. And when you do, it costs more than it should.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
