    Just got back from Sports Academy

    Just got back from Sports Academy, I went over there to look at some pistols they had on display.

    My trip got ruined in a sense by some young guy handling the pistols near me.

    He asked to see an XD...took it and cocked back the slide...ejected the clip and popped it back in..waved it around and ejected the clip again. I kept moving around because I didn't want it pointed at me (though it did have a trigger guard in place )

    I kept thinking...I hope I never stand by this gentleman at the range.

    Clip = magazine, but anyways did your Academy have much ammo? In the Dallas area they did not have much.

    Oh, my bad. Maybe us Texans are freaking out a little about things going on.

    My original home is back in Katy (About 30 miles west of Houston) last time I was there, about a month ago, ammo was real low.

    Here in Spring, I haved been forced to shoot Blazer ammo. That all that is left most of the time at Academy.

    Their ammo prices were telling me to go somewhere else. Of course, now, there is no where to buy ammo except online. Everyones sold out.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    I travel often for my job and I was in Jasper TX lately and stopped by Wal-Mart to get some things, and decided to stop by the ammo section, and I was surprised they had everything except 9mm at descent prices. So I picked up 100 rounds of .380 and 200 rounds of .223, so it looks like my roommate and I will have fun at the range when I get back to Houston.
