My local Big 5 is still getting their shipments every other week. I tend to stop by once a week anyway just to say "Hi!" and chat a bit. Sometimes you wanna go...where every body knows your name... I have not visited the store near my work recently. I should drop in soon just to make sure they are still getting their shipments on Mondays, probably every other week too.Haven't visited the local Big 5 in a while--thought today was delivery day--apparently they have cut back and are doing every other week deliveries. Ammo counter guy anticipates ammo prices to continue to ratchet up.
My local big 5 has had a decent amount of .45 on the shelves lately. I just don't have anything to shoot it with...yet. I'm planning to stop by after work today to see what's left on the shelf. Today is their shipment day.😆 that's what keeps me from shooting my 1911. I'm afraid I won't be able to replenish the ammo I shoot. Iv been having a blast using the laser trainer though. I need to purchase a new laser for 9mm.
Excellent! I'm glad you were able to pad your inventory. I've hung onto some gig money for a couple weeks now hoping to do the same. We'll see what happens after work today.On a hunch I went to the large chain store a few towns away before it opened. There were two folks who had the same idea before I did. Before the doors opened there were around a dozen in line. The store received a limited amount of 9mm--just 4 boxes of 200 WWB--thankfully I was able to snag the two remaining boxes. Am glad that the person in front of me didn't buy any 9mm otherwise I would have been skunked again!
First ammo purchase in about a month. Although clearly the inventory isn't what it was in early summer, the store/chain has not changed the price for the WWB 9mm. Hope I didn't speak too soon.
That's the way I feel. Why waste a trip? It doesn't hurt to add SD ammo at a slow and steady pace. I'm a bit concerned about prices too. With inflation, taxes, supply chain issues, etc, even the price of bacon has gone up a dollar a pound in the last couple of weeks. Don't get me started! 😝Large chain store few towns down had no 9mm on their usual delivery truck last week. This week they had no target 9mm or bulk 22, but they did have some 20 round boxes of JHP 9mm--Winchester Silvertip 115gr and 147gr--I bought the maximum of 5 total. Getting 100 rounds didn't seem to be a great haul, but better than leaving empty handed.
Will see if the ammo prices will bump up even more like food and gas has lately.
