Yup, Mankato is about 25 miles away. Looks like I'll be there on Saturday. I've been to 2 Walmarts, Gander Mountain, Scheel's, 3 locals shops. The one Walmart was limiting handgun ammo to two boxes per caliber.

Ok, go to each WalMart and buy to boxes of each. Then, have your wife buy two boxes of each. I bet if you went in twice in one day no one would care.

The WalMart is Scottsdale had the same "rule". I went in and bought the ammo, went to gas up the truck and then went back in and bough two more boxes.

It's all over the place.

Handgun ammo is scarce around here. Has been for months.

Because Everybody knows that - if a dangerous, psychotic killer would be able to get his hands on MORE than two boxes of ammunition at a time, the Entire World would suffer............

(That, and it's FUN to fsck with otherwise Law Abiding Citizens who just happen to like guns)

Did they "walk you to the door" with the ammo? I've had that happen before.

The problem isn't he box limit, it's the fact that they don't have anything for handgun ammo in stock.

Ammo? Try to get Accurate #2 and small pistol primers! Been out for months. I was reduced to buying Bullseye fer cripe's sake. Ordering primers online. Sheesh.

Gun show? The last one I went to last December had raised ammo prices 50%. And were sold out of popular calibers like 9mm and 45ACP the first evening. I couldn't even find brass. Although the Crossroads Of The West gun show has become sort of a joke. There's no room for gun stuff any more because of all the people selling cheap knives from Pakistan and beef jerky. The latest "craze" was Very pistols. LOL!
