I gave all 2,000 of them to a good friend that reloads.  No charge as he often loads up rounds for my 7 mag and never asks for anything in return.

Funny you said that. I have/had been out of touch with all the ammo shortage/hoarding stuff going on. Did not know it was going on.
I have a friend I gave a 'bucket' of reloaded 9mm to as I do not have one any more. He got pretty excited and I had no idea why. Now I know. It did not make sense to me at the time as 9mm is cheap, and plentiful, right?
 :dunno:
Crazy how much the stuff is going for. Makes me a little sad that I will actually hesitate to go shoot because the price (for now) would be so high if I need to restock supplies.

That's where I'm at, not shooting.

There's good ways to train w/o shooting for hanguns, but not so much rifles.

I haven't seen a price increase to speak of for powders at Ace Hardware either so i guess some are just shopping at the wrong stores.  :twocents:

exactly,there may be a shortage but a shortage is not the same as price gauging.if you shop where everyone else shops you prob. wont find much often.  :twocents:

interesting that small pistol primers were found recently at Sportsmans Warehouse.
I call my local Sportsmans a couple times a week asking if they have gotten any primers or powder in and have been getting told NO every time.
My timing must suck  :dunno: ;)

Miles,
Do you know if they just got them in, or had they had them for awhile?
Thanks!

Yeah, you would have to get incredibly lucky to call in the 5 minutes they are on the shelf.  Sometimes they come out of a box and go directly into a cart without touching the shelf.

Miles,

Thanks!
 

I was there in the morning and picked up 2 boxes of 9mm.   While looking around an older lady that works there asked if she could help me find anything.  I laughed and jokingly said “primers”.   She said “we’ve got some that we’re processing in the back, grab lunch and come back in an hour”.   An hour later they were on the shelves.  They had quite a few boxes.   I check every couple days for 9mm and primers.  Yesterday they had a bunch of handgun ammo, but it was all home defense expensive stuff, no target ammo.   They did have quite a few boxes of .22 ammo as well.

I wouldn’t rely on calling and asking, just pop in occasionally and get to know one of the individuals that work in that area.  They will tell you when the last truck came in and how long it generally takes to get the stuff on the floor.
