This past Saturday, I found one box of Hornady Critical Defense in .38 Special at the Outdoor World/Bass Pro Shop. There was no other .38 Special ammo in the place and the only reason I got that box was that someone had obviously picked it up and put it back in the wrong place (was with the rifle ammo.) When I took it to the counter, the clerk said, "Where in the heck did you find that?" I told him and he kind of chuckled. Another customer, seeing only that it was Critical Defense, asked if it was .380. The clerk replied along the lines that I would have had to fight my way to the checkout counter if it had been .380. The price on that box of .38 Special was actually better than I have seen other places - $19.99. That won't be going for target practice, of course, but I did manage to find three boxes of .38 Special FMJ at a local WalMart a couple of weeks ago. The Sporting Goods clerk said they had only received eleven boxes of .38 since Chrismas, including those three, so even that target ammo will be reserved for a 'special occasion'.risabee said:Still practicing shotgun, .38 (with ammunition from Tennessee -- saints bless the Trading Post) and .22 (from of the last brick of Federals sold in this town). Sitting on my 25 remaining .380s. I'm thinking of going up to Hornady's and camping on their doorstep.
Until you run out!KelTex78 said:When I get low on ammo, then I'll stop. Ammo is meant to be shot and just sitting on it doesn't do any good.
