    Happy Ammo Day!

    That's right folks.....the 7th annual ammo day is under way! It is customary to buy yourself 100 rounds of your favorite ammo today. I guess reloaders can buy brass or whatever?

    Woohoo! I had no idea. How funny, I was planning on going to the gun store at lunch.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    I've bought a bunch this month...enough for 100 ammo days......but one can never have too much.

    A good "excuse" to get some EBG* ammo.

    Somehow I don't think anyone on this forum needs an excuse to buy ammo. Do we?

    Does it count that I ordered a few thousand pieces of lead last night, and some other stuff from Midway?

    I guess if not I can stop by Wally World and pick up some WWB just in case. Was planning on doing that last night too, but didn't get my rear out the door. I guess I will go with another purchase today also. Can't be too prepared can we.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Well, after my range visit, I just went to Wally World and got 15 Winchester 12ga slugs, and a box of 45acp BlazerBrass. I might be a cheap azz this go 'round, but it's my third ammo purchase this week! Now I remember what I forgot to get..........baloney and cheese for this weeks meals! LOL! Now I'm wondering if I'll have enough gas money to get back and forth to work the next four days. Hmmmm.

    You can afford baloney! I had to wait in line for some government cheese. At least I have my dignity, I still haven't drank any kool-aid.

    Since Ram Rod had to mention that it was national ammo day, I forced myself to go to wally world and pick up 400 rds of wwb 9mm.

    Thanks for the heads up. Don't want to go against the grain.

    Well I went today and forgot the ammo dangit! I was so surprised that Gunmaster in Plano has no more AR15 in stick and don't expect any soon.

    I guess I'll have to buy double tomorrow to make up for today's lapse.
