TO my fellow bloggers who are shooting enthusiasts, you are aware of my frustration when it comes to finding ammunition. That of course is if you even find it. I am not going to go off on a tirade about about a government conspiracy or accuse the current administration of buying up an inordinate are bullets. My problem is with the local gun and pawn shop owners that are inflating the cost of what they do have. I get it, supply, demand, avaiability. However, I have found a couple of shops just accross the state line that still sell 22LR, 9MM, 223/5.56, 38, 45, and 40 for a resonable price considering. I recently was able to purchase 550rds of 22LR for $25, 50 9mm for $19, and 38 for $23. My beef is with on store in particular in town. "Mega-Pawn" I asked this cat how much for a box of 50 22LR; he was kind enough to offer me a deal of $22 a box...when I asked for the bulk price of 500, he was going to cut me a deal at the today only proce of $179. As much as I like to shoot there is no way I will give these cats any of my money for anything. I didn't bother to ask about any of the other calibers as I did not want to induce a cardiac event. My point is that place like this are out to screw over whoever walks through their doors. I should not be suprised but those prices were the most outragous I have seen to date. I guess at the end of the day I am disappointed that some buisnessess are that crooked

Mr. Obama is the best friend the NRA ever had - better than Charlton Heston even. Heston said: "From my cold dead hands." Mr. Obama has galvanized the 2nd Amendment proponents like nobody we've ever seen. All the NRA has to do to pump up their constituency is to put the President's photo on the front page of their magazine and newsletters.

As long as my point that Mega Pawn=Mega Rip Off my work here is done.

Message received. I last bought ammo a long time ago (more than 10 years - which tells you how often I go out and fire), but I got it from a gun shop in Midway where I bought my Colt Defender. If that fellow is still in business, perhaps his ammo prices are better.

There are a couple of businesses and gun shops that are still pretty reasonable considering. MOst every place you go you are limited to one or two boxes of each caliber. My thing is I am not preparing for the apocalypse,I just like to shoot and I have a pretty good sized collection of firearms consisting of a lot of differnt calibers. This means I have a lot of mouths to feed if I want to go out with some friends or Scouts to shoot. Some of my firearms are ~$1 a bullet; kinda takes the fun out of it. I hope it gets somewaht better. I am considering making the move to reloading but for right now I am at the mercy of the man...

Wow -$1 a bullet? That WOULD take the fun out of it fer sure. I still have a couple of boxes of .45 ACP from my original purchase back when, which I've been storing in a cool, dry spot. Supposedly it will keep "indefinitely." Perhaps I should just hang onto what I have until the Republicans get back in control of the WH and Congress. Ammo prices should go down quite a bit then.....

AFH - Real Costs

This one'e for your Sebe... The following article does a good job of illistrating what the real costs are to the "average" American.
