exactly... I travel alot for work and just stop by random wal-marts, random times. a box of .40 here some 12gauge slugs there, it's hit or miss around here.

Big 5 in ELP has ammo around. I've been able to pick up what I need there. Academy always seems to have some in stock too.

My problem is finding lrg pistol primers in town. It's impossible online, and I haven't found any place in town that has any in stock.

Buy them up if they are still at normal prices, you can triple your money by putting them on any of the online auctions!
