Everyone in town has speer gold dot ammo but it's hardly range ammunition and it seems like I can't find anything else like WWB or Federal. I'm seriously thinking about selling it or trading it for a .40 tactical :(

My local gun shop/sporting goods store has WWB .45ACP for $14.95/50.
They have WWB .45 GAP for $14.95/50. Talk to your local stores, see if they will start carrying it.

It seems like (At least to me) that there is no problems with them carrying it but they all don't seem to order enough of it to stay in stock. I called Bill Jackson's in Clearwater, FL and that was more or less what the guy had said to me on the phone. I'll probably go and buy a few boxes of speer gold dot just so I can get some rounds through my pistol but at nearly $1 a round, it's not feasible for me to do this often.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to see if I can convince my local range to start carrying it when I go today if not, i'll start to shop online.

Cheers

It is nice to be able to walk into walmart and buy a couple boxes to shoot on the spur of the moment. Sometimes you just aren't prepared, and that ruins the mood.

Only thing nicer is being able to walk down to Academy Sports and pick up a box of 50 9mm rounds for $3.86. Lets hear it for Blazers! :p

While checking the ammo pricing on the .45GAP at CTD, I also
checked in on my favorite round, 9mm Magnum, and it
to is about the same price as the .45GAP.

i love my XD's and want a .45 so bad i can taste it but i will not buy a GAP. Ammo is harder to find and more money. It just does not make any sense to me. if they made an XD in .45ACP i would buy two first thing in the morning. a tactical and a service

Why would you sell it or trade it because your local shops don't carry it? Local shops most of the time are too expensive anyway. Just buy online. There's tons of information right here at your fingertips.

You should be buying ammo online anyway. With a very few exceptions, it's always cheaper than buying it locally.

Buy at least 1000 rounds at a time, and it gets considerably cheaper. Or just start reloading.

Thanks for the info guys. I'm going to give a shot to reloading and then I'll probably just buy online and go from there. Since I'm a college student, I can't really afford 1,000 rounds of ammo at a time but I had a great time shooting this past weekend.

Cheers

Knight's in Pinellas Park was supposed to get some Lawman 45GAP in today. I got tired of looking and just ordered it online. I was in Bill Jackson's on Friday and they had about 20 boxes of GoldDot. I also know that Castle Keep on Ulmerton stocks Lawman in 45GAP, but I don't know how much.

Thanks! I was actually over at Bill Jackson's on Sunday shooting. Pretty decent facility although it'd be nice to have a better idea how far away the targets are that I've set.
