I got quite a shock today! Since it was my day off I headed to the local Scheel's All-Sport store to see if they had anything interesting in the gun case and check to see if they had any .22 or 9mm ammo. To my surprise and delight, the case was full of 9mm ammo! My happiness didn't last long once I saw the price though- $24.00 for 50 rounds of FMJ! :blink: Yikes! I rubbed my eyes and squinted, then took one more look to see if I'd been hallucinating. Nope, $.50 per round...for nine mm ammo! A few other guys were looking at the case but they too shook their heads and walked away. As usual they had a ton of .45 ACP 230 gr ball ammo for $.45 per round. Guess I'll have to shoot my 45 to save some cash!
On one level though I commend them, I think they found the solution to their shortage of 9mm! :banana: The current batch should last quite a while! On a semi-serious note, maybe this is the only thing that will stop the hoarders and scalpers. Now that the retail price strains credulity there won't be as much room to buy it and resell it on Craigslist.
