I Have ALL The Ammo!

I went to the mall (if you want to call it that – more like several tiny shops all in one building) today on my lunch break, like I do about once a week.  I can’t eat anything really so I just kinda hang out places for an hour.

Anyway, I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods.  To be honest I absolutely hate going in there.  It always feels like a waste of time.  And when it isn’t a waste of time, its so freaking expensive!  I went back to look at the rifles, just because I like looking at them.  I like guns (but I’m sure you already knew that); shooting them, holding them, cleaning them, and looking at them . . . I just love them.

I thought to myself while I was back there, “I wonder if they have any 22lr ammo in stock?”  Then I laughed to myself and said, “yea right, and like I could afford it if they did”.  Well the salesperson asked if he could help me and I smiled as I asked if they had and 22lr ammo.

Without hesitation he reached under the counter and pulled out a bucket of Remington Gold ammo!  1,400 rounds!  I was stunned.  He said, “yea, we got four of these things in”.  I cringed a little as I asked, “how much?”

$64.95.  I did some quick math in my head (meaning I pulled out my cellphone and opened up the calculator) and determined the stuff was under $0.05 a round; it was priced for me to buy.  Remington Gold is my favorite 22lr ammo so I didn’t hesitate.

Neither did the gentleman behind me.  The two of us left them only one bucket.

I now have plenty of 22 ammo.  I have no excuse not to be at the range every weekend.  And the best part is I don’t have to keep scouring the county in search of some 22lr ammo.

    Good find! I haven’t been quite as lucky. I keep reading where people are asking works at Dick’s, Wal-Mart and all the other stores that sell ammo, but here in NorthWest Missouri I ask when they expect another shipping and all I get is, “Who knows?” I’ve tried calling Cabelas and that’s the same answer I get from them too. It’s crazy.

      Don’t give up! They all say that around here too. You just gotta be there when the stuff shows up. Its more luck than anything. Nobody has a definite answer on when the stuff they have on order will show up.

      I wish I did. I will keep my eyes open and let you know if I find anything. Make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss it if I post about it. I doubt I’ll be finding any of these online soon though.
