    Bought another gun(s)....

    So monday i went into my LGS to buy a Glock 17 gen 3 for my police academy training and since 9mm ammo is in shortage they are limiting it to gun purchases or range time only (limit 2 boxes). Well I bought the Glock and the salesman said they were getting their shipment of about 100k rounds in tomorrow (tuesday) so i said ok ill be back tomorrow. Tomorrow comes along so i head back in and make the mistake to stroll along over to the Glock cases and they just put out a 19 gen 4 that they just got in. So long story short I bought 2 Glocks in 2 days lol. Now i just need to get out and shoot them.

    Very nice, congrats on your purchase(s). But let me guess, by the time you got there the next day, that 100K rounds were gone.

    Shoot Straight, they have 7 stores but they only sell if you use the range or if you buy a new gun.

    Bought another gun(s)....

    I thought each Shoot Straight ordered their own inventory and were operated separately, not sure though...

    When I bought my Shield recently I box a box of ammo to go with it...then I went to the range section to test it and bought a box of ammo, so I was able to score two boxes (and only shot a few rounds) lol.

    There's a gun store in Lakeland that had a decent supply of handgun ammo when I was there two weeks ago. Not a good price, but not completely insane (I think I paid $23?) I'm not sure if they limit the number of boxes, I only bought one.

    Yes and No, they are all owned by the same guy and they order their own inventory but it all comes into the Apopka store and the Apopka store keeps what they need and sends out the rest.

    That's not even a couple hours of shooting, there!

    Gotta bring spouse, neighbor, the pool guy, and the car mechanic. That'll get you a couple thousand rounds. That should do you a few weeks, what with the new Glocks needing some attention.

    Nice, congrats. What was the other Glock you bought? With a 17 and a 26 you're all set for work and for off duty. I know the blue tag Glocks come with 3 mags, do they come with night sights too?

    By the way, if your job doesn't reimburse you for the gun you can write that off your taxes next year.

    You can't beat buying a Glock, unless you buy two of them.
