I wonder about what the real prices of ammo is for dealers, I see places like the Cabelas in Grand Rapids/Grandville, selling 9mm and 5.56/.223 for decent prices considering the current political situations. Its seems to come more frequently nowadays too, I usually buy a 2 or 3 boxes at a time every couple of weeks and my supply of ammo is sitting pretty good now. $40 a box for reloads or steel case ammo is crazy, even online places like SGAmmo is selling ammo for pretty high prices, for some of the exact same ammo I can buy locally for less than half. I understand pricing and availability is different for local dealers versus big chains, but where do you draw the line at price gouging?

IIRC George Israel is the owner of the dive.

I haven't been there in 15 years or so. I found out from a buddy down there.

Yes he is/was. I used to live in that area. Bought some guns from him and shot at the indoor range (Kodiak ?) next door. Been a long time for me, too. I don’t know how Brown Bear has survived there this long.

There used to be an indoor range across the street by the railroad tracks if I remember correctly.

We used to go to the outdoor range before the clubhouse burned down.

Before Kodiak Gun Shop, there was a hand trap range across from Maple Grove, then it turned to LaBelle Electric.

I found out that Maple Grove was closed when I met some buddies from work to go shoot. They were sitting outside on the shoulder of 21 whining to me.

My bad, I lived at 21 & Jefferson at the time

I just never went west of Gratiot to know.


eta- Tom LaBelle is / was a tree cutting machine

I live down the street from BB they are total assholes in there unless your one of their regulars, they won’t give you the time of day.
Probably one of the worst ranges around.

The two Dunham’s that I frequent in Grand Rapids are getting decent shipments once in a while lately. I scored 6 boxes of Win. 9mm on Saturday. Prices are a little higher now, $15.99 is what I’ve been paying.

I stopped by Brown Bear today out of curiosity. They had 50-round boxes of Fiocchi 5.56 for $60. 200-round cases of PMC with no price marked (I was afraid to ask). 5While I was there, a guy was buying an AR with what looked like about a 2.5-10 scope on it. The counter guy pointed him toward the ammo shelves and had to show him which ammo went with the rifle. $115 for a 5-box bundle (100 rounds) of Federal 55 gr MSR. It did smell kind of funky in there.

Yep.  I won't buy ANYTHING there.  They treat you like an asshole from the moment you walk in the door.  I had an ammo question about 4 years ago so I stopped in there (against my better judgement).  Grabbed the ammo I had a question about and then stood by the counter for 5 minutes while the two employees ignored me and just kept BS'ing about their weekends.   It's been the same way for 30 years.  Shocks me they're still in business.

Ive found good prices on ammo at Rural King in Hartland MI if anyone is near there. It sells out quick though, paid 25c a round for 7.62x39.

Well I live by rural king and was their today as many times a week and they had no ammo not even shot shells and don't know when they will be getting any.
