Went to the Gun Show today just to look and dream a little bit. BUT, also needed some .380 ammo, so kept my eyes open and checked at every table that had ammo. My fault I didn't get there when the doors opened, I arrived about noon. As always, most prices were quite high on things that I looked at. I found a table with Aguila .380, box of 50, 95gr, JHP ....$36.00 a box. People were buying two or more boxes at a time. Since I was looking for FMJ, I passed. A bit later, asked another vendor if he had any .380 FMJ, he initially said NO, then said, I have a couple of bags I bought for my wife, but you may be able to talk me out of one. I asked how much KY Jelley I needed, and he laughed. He went over and pulled out a bag of 50, FMJ, from Georgia Arms. It was plainly priced on the bag at $16.50, and he said he would let me have the bag for $20. Said he would tell the wife he could only get her one bag when he took the other bag home. Well, I did buy the bag. I had already been by the Georgia Arms table, they had NO .380. The fella running the Georgia Arms booth said when the doors opened at 9:00 a.m., the other Vendors bought all of his .380 ammo. I guess everyone was either buying to hoard, or buying to make a killing off poor fellas like me that just had to have 50 or more practice rounds....At this point, I'll just go into a "wait and see" mode for any additional .380 ammo I buy. Just needed a lil bit for my new LCP to make sure it functioned correctly...:image035:...
