I stopped into Total Firearms, in Mason this after noon, and seen the first box of .223 in about two months, Federal American Eagle .223 for 12.99 per 20 rounds. 65 cents per round, I waited as I am hoping to get down to 45 to 50 cents a round again.

No .22lr, .45acp or .223 anywhere from the Soo to Traverse in any place I stopped and I stopped everywhere I thought sold ammo.

A friend of mine let me in on his ammo honey hole. They are fully stocked with everything you could want for good prices. I would tell you where but then it wouldn't be a fully stocked honey hole anymore because you fucks would buy it all.

When the Saginaw one opened a couple weeks ago they limited you to three boxes of ammo and there was a four wait in the checkout. They were open till three am to get everyone through. I went in a few days later and they still had thousands of rounds of .223 but it wasn't that great of a deal and I wasn't going to wait even fifteen minutes in line for 60 rounds of anything. At the time they still had a shitload of pistols though too. All the main glocks except the 19 and about 40-50 used glock .40 cals.

“This morning, I lucked out and was able to buy several cases of ammo. On the way home, I stopped at the gas station, and this drop-dead-gorgeous blond was filling up her car at the next pump.”

She looked at the ammo in the back of my car and said in a very sexy voice, “I believe in barter, big boy. Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?”

I thought it over for a few seconds and responded, “Well, just what kind of ammo have you got to trade?”

I know I'm glad I slowly got myself a small stockpile of 22lr, 223/556, 9mm and 45 before all this started. So as long as I don't go just shoot hundreds of rounds at a time just for the fun of it I should be ok till this blows over. At least I hope so. Then only thing I was a little low on was 45 to use when I carry and I was able to get some of those at a "normal" price. I even had to help out a friend that was scheduled to take a cpl class and couldn't find any 9mm so I sold him 100 rds for what I payed for it when I bought it.
