Default Guns and Ammo

Soooo I buy a couple new guns but can't find any .380 ACP or 9mm ammo anywhere. None at Gander Mountain, Scheels, Wally World, or the local gun shops. This blows.

Effing politicians.

Hit the gun shows man. It's your last chance before they close em down.

No gun shows in the near future in the local area.

There are tons of .44mag and .357mag, but no auto pistol rounds. It really sucks man. It looks like I'll have two nice new steel and plastic sculptures to admire instead of shoot.

Pick up an issue of Shotgun News and also go to guntrader.com.

Really? You are wondering where to gun ammunition and I say Shotgun News. And you ask "what is in it?" Are you just waking up?

Surplus, surplus, surplus. You are plinking, don't bother with the expensive stuff.

Also, make a few phone calls to AZ gun dealers. They always have a ton of surplus ammunition.

I figured it would have some new news I hadn't heard yet. Obviously a gun rag has ammunition etc.

Yup, I enjoy surplus, have yet to find any in .380 or 9mm where I've looked. I do admit to not looking online much though. As I said, I was hoping to shoot this weekend so I exhausted the local search first. It looks like I'll have to wait a few weeks to pop some sillouettes.

Do you have a WalMart near you? Sport goods store?

Where are you located, you are in Minnesota, right?
