Re: 9mm ammo
I used to shoot 1-2 times a week at my local range. I haven't gone in the past 2-3 months because of the ammo shortages. :(

I also can't do 3-gun this year because of it. I'm so sick of people ordering 20,000-30,000 at arfcom with the sole intent to resell it. Its entirely screwed my 3-gun season.

I have ammo - but not enough to feel comfortable shooting it for a full 3-gun season without restocking it...
 Quoting: ifSHTF


3-gun eh? Very cool!

cool2

But yes, my philosophy is if it's not readily available at the store then what I've got at home becomes strictly "rainy day" supply.

Re: 9mm ammo
Yeah the brass was green. I wouldnt shoot it unless zombies were overrunnning me. I wont shoot reloads at all. Seen to many problems with them. Some people like them i dont. Ibought 3 boxes of PPU 9mm at Walmart six weeks ago. Id never heard of it but it looked good. I wish i would have bought more. Ishot it threw a hi point a glock and a smith 5904. All three guns worked perfect with it. It was accurate and shot clean. Ill buy more if i can find more.

Yeah....the green brass would raise red flags....actually my reloads are as good as factory ammo...I tumble clean all my once fired brass, all my charges are weighed, I use copper plated or jacketed bullets, and I check all my reloads with a chamber gauge....the ones I put into storage gets a lacquer sealant around the primer and bullet...

Re: 9mm ammo
Should have gotten your ammo when the gettin was good !
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36928794


Problem is, with a shortage of this magnitude, nobody I know is shooting.

I don't like not being able to go to the range.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8397139


Same here, I haven't been shooting in months. Too expensive. Plus, in my area, kind of scary. The last time I went up to the BLM shooting range there were a bunch of guys there with semi-auto rifles and several cases of beer, and it was barely past noon. I just don't like to mix guns and alcohol, so I haven't been back since; especially since I'm a woman and now single.

I might have to break down and see if I can get some at MallWart. I don't like stepping foot in that place, but if it's available nowhere else at a semi-reasonable price...

I do have several hundred rounds for now. But again, I don't like not being able to practice.

Re: 9mm ammo
Everyone needs to stop target practicing and wasting ammo. You most likely shoot better than 80% of Americans if you have spent any time practicing techniques and gaining muscle memory.

Save your ammo for the coming battle. You will need it to save yourself and your family.

Re: 9mm ammo
Last weekend i was giving a guy a price on a drywall job. His house was out in the sticks. Not too far away were two people blazing away with ak 47s or sks. I couldnt help but think they were just wasting precious ammo. Ill agree alcohol and guns dont mix. I wont shoot with people who are drinking.

Its nice to hear from a female gun owner on here. I believe more woman should have guns and shoot. Ive helped women and men who were new to guns. Alot of the females pick it up faster then the males.

Re: 9mm ammo
Ijust read that the PPU factory in Serbia is working 24 7 making ammo for the American market. Maybe It will behere soon. I really liked the 9mm fmj i tried a few weeks ago. Seemed like good ammo. Shot one box. Have 2 left.

Re: 9mm ammo
Wow, that's insane. I can remember, around 8 years ago, when Fiocchi 9MM was $5 for a box of 100. I'd burn up ammo all day at the range, and never spent over a $50 on any given day.

Re: 9mm ammo
Iwent to six local gunshops last week looking for 9mm fmj hardball. Only found 2 boxes twenty dollars a box. This is getting stupid. One guy has some generic crap for thirty a box. Im not paying that. He wanted 15.00 for it three months ago.He also wants 60.00 for 525 rounds of .22 lr. Anyone else having any better luck. It seems like in Indiana 9mm is the hardest pistol ammo to find. Still finding 40 sw 45 acp 380 acp and 38 special at okay prices.

9mm... tell me who in the hell is buying all the .22LR. what could someone possibly need THAT much .22 LR for? I can understand a 9mm shortage, as its a defensive round still in use, but .22 LR...

The squirrel population should be shitting bricks right about now, as we're on the cusp of a squirrel genocide event with as much .22 LR floating around out there.

Re: 9mm ammo
Went to the local Wal Mart earlier today to get groceries. Like always i went to sporting goods to look at their near empty ammo case. It was not empty. It wasnt there anymore. Gone. They had a few boxes of shotgun shells on the shelves where the ammo case used to be. Now what the hells going on. They have had that case there for years. I just asked them a couple weeks ago if they were going to keep selling ammo and they said they were.

There is no reason whatsoever to buy or search for ammunition.

good advice here. glad no one is listening though. still plenty of stock on the shelves for me. My latest purchase was a Sparkie by Ultimate Survival. I was just looking at a round Esbit stove. Looks like a great wind shield built into the stove. I'm about to make a large purchase of Espit cubes. Great for starting campfires also when the wood is damp.
