    Went to buy ammo but....

    I still have not taken my Glock 42 out for a field test. I am trying to find ammo. So I walked into a local Bi-Mart and went to the ammo counter. A bit bare. They had tons of .40 but not much else.

    A clerk approached me and asked me if I needed assistance.

    Sure, I said. Do you have any .380?

    He starts looking.

    Sir, I said. It is a pistol cartridge.

    Ya. He was looking in the rifle ammo section. OK. At least get someone who knows ammunition.

    This should be in the humor section. Probably a good thing the clerk is not a rocket scientist.

    I thought of that, but when I mentioned it to him, it was clear he thought it was a rifle caliber.

    BPS has .380 and I've been ordering plenty on-line from the many sites that have it available for the past year, as well as other calibers. You just have to look.

    380 has been a bear to find esp for plinking ammo .Worst yet some guns only seem to like some brands .. HP ammo been ok to fine but plinking...

    Online may be the best bet ..

    You might also check out Precision One. The trick with so much of the web stores is the shipping. It can sometimes add a significant per round cost. When/if you can find free shipping, buy all you can afford.

    If you hurry, you can get some .380 from Freedom Munitions w/free shipping. Offer ends at midnight. The coupon code is on the web site. It's reman, but they have a good reputation with their reman ammo. I believe a box of 50 rounds was about $19.
