Sounds exactly like Medina today, prices and all. Got there 45 minutes before opening and the line was already long, by the time it opened the line was wrapped halfway around the perimeter of the parking lot. Lots of guns and ammo on the table but little worth paying scalpers prices for. I've never attended Yankee Lake before, is it a good show for milsurps?

Wow! I was kind of disappointed that I didn't make it out today.

It sounds like I didn't miss much.

Went to vances Obetz earlier this week, 2hr wait just to see a salesman(I passed on that) did notice a few guys walking around with some of that $28 a box 9MM, couldn’t believe people were buying that stuff.

I wish people would stop buying it.  Hopefully prices would come back down.

That was my thought.

Yesterday at OGCA I picked up a 200 round sleeve of Portuguese BF head stamp 7.62 NATO for $100 (not a bad price these days) and a sealed 240 round can of HXP 7.62x63 for $200. Me not being hip to current surplus 30.06 prices, I didn't think the HXP was a very good deal until I looked at Gun Broker completed auctions for the same thing.

What really surprises me about this whole go round is that all ammo is damn near wiped clean, even bigger bore rifle rounds, shotgun ammo, if folks just back off for a bit and let the MFG catch up, let the shelves get replenished we might stand a chance at getting some descent priced ammo again, hell the MFG is probably paying a premium for materials and then having to pay there people OT to make it, we will never win in that scenario.

I can see your point.

@SatelliteMan  Holy cow.  Glad I haven't driven all the day down there just to look around.  I haven't gone to Blackwing lately, but last time I was there (pre Christmas) they had 9mm for $32/50.   If you guys are interested let me know & I can go check today if they still have some.
