    i just picked up 5 boxes (50 rds a box) of S&B 230 gr, at my LGS for $29.00 per box. forgedaboud any .45 ACP online.

    i didn't even bother to ask about the 9MM, as i have quite a bit right now. it was my .45 ACP that i needed to bring up.

    but i did also just check Ammunition depot, they have Wolf at $29.99

    guess my friend did good today then. sold him 2 boxes winchester 124 nato for 40 bucks...then he says it's for a G43...so I said"HANG ON!!"...that ammo's hot, and my 43 kicks like a mule (albeit a subcompact mule) with it. If I'd known I would have dug up some mellower stuff.

    Practicing with 124 NATO is a good thing. My 43 kicks with it, but no more than my defensive ammo. Mellower is good for the range, but not so much as defensive ammo. But that might just be me.

    H'mmm... maybe not. ;)

    I don't see a slimline subcompact in your picture. :rolleyes:

    Is it playing 'Waldo'... or are my old eyes simply failing me? :D

    Best regards,

    Bob

    Gee, yeah, forgot about the 43, but glad I brought what I did. One P80 seems to need a little more tension on the slide release spring, so I'll look into that. These guys shot NATO rounds as well. IMG_20201023_163303223.jpg

    I’m a dealer, and I have noticed gun prices going through the roof. The gun prices from Distributors has not gone up. But ammo has gone up around 6 dollars. For instance I get 9mm 115 grain ammo for about $6.99 a box Pre- pandemic, now it’s 12-14 dollars a box. So at $6.99 a box I would sale in for $10.99 a box (+4 dollars)
    So now ammo in 9mm should NOT be more then 18.99 to 19.99 a box PERIOD.
    If anyone is chanrging more then that they are gouging you!!!! I use the biggest distributors in the USA.. I’m so tired of people gouging American Citizens it makes me PUKE

    just did a deep search for ammo, been having a hankering to get some nato surplus 7.62/51 or 5.56. I'd seen some Hirtenberg on 308ammo.com the other day for 67 cents a round, up a quarter a round from my stash, but real nice bagged '70's vintage....anyways, took the plunge and ...sorry, not in stock.....just did a search for 9/.45acp/5.56 and .308/7.62-51 and it's just crazy. Target Sports bulk, I saw 4 pages of 5.56 disappear to nada when I clicked the "in stock" box. 7.62-51/.308 went from 6 pages to 2 offerings, both Wolf.....pistol, if you have a wallet full of cash and a .45GAP, you're in luck.
    Thing really irking me these days re: gouging, is the places selling reloads for as much or more than new stuff. Guess that's capitalism but glad my "temple of the cans" is still standing, and do believe I will give thanks at it when I get home tonight.
    I did buy spare parts for my coughothercough guns, and got limited to one bag of lower receiver springs/pins etc due to demand....glad to see folks wanting to keep the alphabet boys working overtime, should that day come.
