I have been looking to pick an M&Pc for awhile, and Sportsmen's Den in Shelby finally got some in stock. I went over today to pick one up, and they had several. They also had full size M&Ps and some Glocks, as well. I saw a 17, a 19, a 20s and a few others. They also had reasonably (comparatively) priced ammo, with no limits on quantities. I gave $499+tax for the M&P and $34.99 for 100 rounds of American Eagle 9mm. The gun counter was nearly deserted and my BC took about two minutes.

Not bad B&T shooting has had Glocks and M&P's in stock for awhile for about the same price. As far as ammo i'm still picking it up at WW.

That's an excellent price for the ammo, especially since you didn't have to pay shipping like you do with internet purchases. Of course there's always sales tax......

I keep hearing about positive signs regarding ammo, but here in northern Kentucky I've yet to see anything but .243 and 7mm, at least at Walmart.

I haven't seen ammo at Walmart for months.

Glad to hear things are calming down just a little. I was fortunate enough to pick up a 250 round box of Remington UMC 9mm yesterday for $80. Glocks are easy to find where I'm from, but the M&P line is a little harder to come by, the compact versions being a real rarity. Ammo is still flying off the shelves but I've noticed a huge difference in the past month alone. I gave up on Wal-Mart. In my town they only ever have shotgun shells.

Vances, Cabelas and Gander Mountain in reynoldsburg have guns in stock as well. Still seeing $19 box 50 for 9mm at those places.

There are tons of Glocks around here, and plenty of EBR's, too. The latter are still priced a little higher than they were pre-Sandy Hook but not incredibly so. For example Scheel's has two Sig 516's in stock for $2050 each, a little high but not rapacious. 9mm ammo is still not where I'd like to see it but they've had a decent stock of 115 gr FMJ for at least an entire week. Recently their policy changed to permit only 100 rounds or 1 bulk box per customer, and I suppose that's the main reason they're not out of 9mm yet. And the price is $18/50- very high but lower than a couple months back.

Premier guns and ammo both much more available here. AR's abound and even Glocks back in. As I posted in another thread I picked up 100 rds of Remington UMC 9mm for 30 bucks as well.

From what I have seen here and elsewhere though it does seem to be hit or miss by area, and as far as ammo, while it seems back in and at more reasonable prices they are still limiting how much you can buy per trip everyhwere.

Definitely positive news though.

Had a similar experience today at the LGS/range. They ration ammo to X boxes of 50 rounds per range visit, and it has been one or maybe two (if you come on a good day) for most common calibers. Well today it was four boxes for 9mm, which was awesome. I also noticed they had a huge selection of guns, far more than normal, including a few Sigs.

As for Wally World, I don't think you're going to see that situation improving as quickly but perhaps online will start looking better. I'm about to get me a SKS/Nagant and stock up on milsurp 7.62x39/54R for them, seems to be available and cheap still.

Glad to hear it, but our local WW and Bass Pro have not had ammo for months.

One LGS has ammo of varying calibers but usually something that I own, but limits it to one box per caliber per customer per day. They are pretty cool, though, I was in there last Saturday and picked up a box of .22LR, .223 and .38 special and the guy at the counter pulls out a box of 5.56 and asks if I want it.

Same LGS had a pile of Glock 26 Gen 4's back on March 13, so I bought one....... 9 weeks later I am still waiting for my paperwork to come back from Maryland State Police.

Another LGS has a policy that after the 7 day wait you can take the gun and if your paperwork doesn't come back "Not Disapproved" (yes, that is actually what the stamp says, don't get me started) then you can take possession and have it out with the MSP on your own if there is an issue. Only problem is that because of this policy you have to be there on the right day to buy what you want. Everything else is sold.

Picked myself up a '39 Nagant a couple months ago! Love that rifle.

Went to a gun show yesterday. Prices on ammunition have not really come down, IMO. I saw 9mm PMC for $50/box of 50. I did see a price drop on .22LR. It has come down from $89/brick, to $70/brick. Glocks were going for anywhere fro $550 to $625 at different tables. I don't know how that compares to "normal," since I don't own any Glocks.
