    I met a fellow GlockTalker and picked up 420 rounds of various .40 S&W ammo for $35.

    It's a mixture of a few boxes each of:
    Blazer 180g TMJ
    Blazer 180g Gold Dot JHP
    Speer 165g Gold Dot JHP
    Fiocchi 145g JHP
    GrayAreaAmmo 180g TMJ

    Sweet.

    I wouldve been on that like stink on a dog pile if I could login to GT from wurk.

    Alas, you beat me to it. But at least I can login here :)

    Did you get all of it??? or are there scraps left over for poor old me

    This Fiocchi ammo is sort of interesting.

    First, it's 145 grain bullets:

    Hmm, odd little hollow point:

    dont expect any fantastic ammo deals at the show, last one I went to the internet was still vastly cheaper.

    for instance a lot of dealers had 1k bricks of Wolf Classic Military 7.62x39 for $199 + tax.

    I got mine for $160 delivered...

    Seems you can't expect to find deals on anything at the shows anymore. Good shoppers can almost always find better deals online.

    Nice pickup on the ammo!!!

    They are up to $20 for .40 now?!

    That is about a four dollar increase in less than a month. Surely, you are incorrect....

    It's $16.99 at Bass Pro, but you have to check your weapon, etc. at the door.

    And that stuff is just plain filthy.

    Maybe you folks on the south side of the state have it better than we do. THe Bass Pro near me didn't have those kind of prices.

    You make up for the difference with the trip to Savannah unless you buy lots of it. I may go to Bass Pro at Discover Mills this weekend, though.

    I guess I always wondered if they had metal detectors or something like that.

    I don't know why it never dawned on me that even if caught they could just ask me to leave.

    Hopefully they wouldn't ban me, I like the store too much. :wink:

    I got lucky at the show at the Gwinnett fair grounds a while back. NOBODY had any 7.62x39 for any price. There was a guy walking around with a Mauser and a SKS slung on his shoulder with a for sale sign. I got to talking with him and found that he had some ammo in his vehicle. I ended up buying 1800 rounds (some of which was on stripper clips) for $100 even.

    I've got to find a cheap hookup for .223. When is the next gun show?
