    I was in my local gun shop picking up some things for my 10/22 ruger and was talking about 380 ammo the head guy told me he had some target ammo hidden only for those who bought 380 weapons there. Well needless to say I pointed out that I bought my P3AT there and presto a box of mag tec 380 was in my hands. Makes me a little mad since I picked up my p228 p226 and also a few riffles at same said shop. Shouldnt that count also????? Only a box at a time 1 a week thats ok he is less than 5 minutes from me. I keep a couple hundred rounds backup and have more on backorder. As far as protection ammo my area seams to be clearing up most stores have some. It does seam to be going faster than normal. I am assuming its because there is no target rounds about. Dont give up and if you order now even on backorder you will probaly still get some in your hands faster than hoping someone has it in stock. Good luck and happy hunting! ;)

    i stopped in a local gun shop today, they had 5 box's of blazer for $13.95 a box. not my ideal ammo but i can't be picky in these times. actually got laughed at a couple places i stopped at yesterday. they said if you find any you better buy what they have, this is getting crazy

    So... I went to Wally World and asked about some 380. The Dude (mouth breather, probably stoned) says "Yeah, we ain't had those in since like December and prolly (<- his word, not mine) won't get any in 'till like, September.

    I didn't have the energy to tell him that I BOUGHT some from there last month.

    THE SKY IS FALLING!! THE SKY IS FALLING!!

    (what a moron)

    I've had 380 ammo on backorder for 2 months now.
    I had some 32 H&R mag in backorder hell for over 6 months. Had to cancel it.
    Glad I have a decent inventory, but replacement costs and availability are killing me (all of us, really  :'( )
    Next investment is a hand loading press.

    Hit all the store often! I scored a 250rnd box of rem380 today was an hour late to get the p3at that came in went on self and out the door as fast as they invoiced it all. Had to ask about ammo they had it soooo hidden away and seam to only let those who they see alot in on it make yourself known!!! Even then most didnt know where it was ask the BOSS MAN! Had a choice of mag tec fmj rem fmj and HCD hollows plus a few I will not mention. They did limet me but Im 5 minutes away Ill be back tomorow for another box of 250rnd rem I am already stocked on HCD. ::) I hope this means you all will start seeing some around soon. :cool:

    I found a local ad, the guy wants $80 for a 100 pack of WWB.

    I'm still tempted to respond to the ad but, momma always said ;)

    I scrounged up about 50-60 rounds or so last Christmas when I visited my folks. I found a couple partial boxes in my old bedroom where I stored a lot of stuff when I moved to CO. That's the last time I saw .380 that wasn't in my ammo locker or gun.

    my local gun shop has plenty of everything. he also has a sign that says
    only two boxes of ammo per customer... its all the knuckle heads buying it up
    and hording it that are causing the problem...

    worse yet the freaking pirates that buy it up and try to sell it
    at gun shows for 2 to 3 times its price... i personally got in a scalpers face about
    this when i questioned his $35+ price on a box of federal bulk 22... $15 at wallmart...
    you could see he went around and cleared out the local stores because that is all he was
    selling was walmart ammo... you could see he wasnt a regular dealer.... and he tells people that the shelves are bare at walmart... talk about jerk asses....

    So we now live in a country with ammo scalpers. >:(  

    I'm all for free market capitalism, but this ain't concert tickets, folks.  This is our freedom. This crap just ****es me off.  

    BTW-  went to a gun shop today and got the cold sweats when I saw some .380 50 rd boxes for sale, but you could only buy it if you bought an overpriced, used Bersa in the display case!!!

    i bought a box of CD (25 count) from a guy locally for $30 the other day. he e-mailed me today and said he just sold his LCP so now he's selling his unused .380 ammo. getting a 50 count box of Remington UMC FMJ 95gr and a 50 count box of Federal American eagle FMJ 95gr. $30 for each box. i'm just ecstatic to actually find some ammo
