I did once..... ONCE!

I bought 20 ga instead of 12 ga. No returns on ammo ... I can respect that. So what is a man to do??

Tried to convince the wife that since I have the ammo I NEED the gun to go with it... she's smart... didnt buy into it.

So everytime I went to the range I looked for guys with 20 ga shotguns. Finally a couple of guys shooting 20's I said"Merry Christmas guys" They were just amazed, why would someone just GIVE THEM ammo.

Told them, My screw up is their lucky day.


Shit happens. NEXT TIME I will pay more attention.

almost did that
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 9:17:24 PM EST
some one had stuck a box or .22-250 in the .223 pile. Same color and size box.
I grabbed two boxes.
My wife was with me and caught it.
I had grabbed the .22-250 box.

That would have sucked.

I thought I was the only one that did that. Same thing. Got 20ga instead of 12ga. Well, guess it makes a good excuse to get a 20ga shotgun.

I never done that I bought mags and ammo for an AK, before I got it though

Bought 3 boxes of 9mm Makarov at a gun show. I meant to get 9mm Luger. That'll teach me to pay attention.

I have a few boxes of 7.62x39mm.... just because I know I'll run into a friend with an AK or SKS I want to shoot
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 9:20:40 PM EST
can't say i've done that.


I've gotten the 'wrong' ammo in that I was wanting some more .45 defense rounds, and picked up a box of FMJ intead (wasn't thinking at the time).....but that wasn't a big deal, I just shot an extra box the next time I was at the range.

Hahhaa nice, I guess it does say two different things. Sounded right in my head
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 9:25:42 PM EST
Yes, one time I got a few boxes of target loads when I meant to get JHP. The boxes looked alike. Oh well.

I knew what you meant too.

One time at my nephews birthday party, when the cake came out and the candles were lit he said "I wanna make a wish, I wanna make a wish" So I grabbed him by his ankles and spun him around the room until he went "A-whish, A-whish"

I thought Now was a GREAT time to teach him the danger... Of homonyms.

I've never bought the wrong ammo before but I do have ammo for a gun I don't own. This lady at work bought a chest at a garage sale, and when still took the drawers out to refinish it, she found a box of ammo. She brought it to me, since she knew that I am a gun nut and she didn't know how to dispose of it.

Anybody in the Phoenix area want 36 rounds of 9x18 Makarov?

I got about 25 rounds of .44 magnum lying around
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 9:43:05 PM EST
No. When I go, I take more ammo than I need anyway. I also take a mixed ammo can that I dump any partial boxes into when I am done shooting and generally draw from first when i get to the range the next time; it has enough of a mixture of rounds that I can put together at least a a few strings of fire for just about any firearm I own.

I've done it too. When they are in those big stacks and all the boxes are the same, it's an easy mistake to make.

Nope.

I htought I got a killer deal on 9mm on time only to find out that instead of 500rnds I got 500 bullets.
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 10:14:25 PM EST
Yea, I did... I ended up buying a gun that fit it.
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 10:15:42 PM EST
yes

.22 pellets instead of .177 pellets

almost 5 yrs ago; still got all 1000 of em

anybody want em?
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 10:44:06 PM EST
only once.

Bought 185gr Hydra-Shoks when I wanted the 230s.....
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 12:45:47 AM EST
i bought a dessert chicken in 44mag shortly after they came out. manual said don't shoot all lead, semi- jacketed at the least.
i picked up a box of full wadcutters by mistake.
"what can a single box do?" i said to myself.
8 short shots later and my gun was inopperable. lead shavings blocked up the gas port.
oh well.
sold it long ago, so it's no longer an issue.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 1:17:38 AM EST
Did it once, Still have the box of ammo in 9mm Win Mag.

Link Posted: 10/18/2004 2:04:00 AM EST
Never happened to me. I am far too anal retentive about such matters to make a mistake. I am a detail freak. LOL.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 2:20:32 AM EST
I bought a box of .22lr when I asked for .22 Mag. The boxes under the glass counter were sitting next to each other. The kid grabbed the wrong box. CCI boxes do look similar. At least I only paid for .22lr.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 2:39:40 AM EST
2 boxes of 45 long colt instead of auto over ten years ago, I still have them and have never owned the hand gun to go with them...........
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 2:50:16 AM EST
I have a 100 rd. Winchester valu-pack of 20 gauge sitting on the shelf. Nobody I know owns a 20 gauge. Hoping to find somebody at the range to give it to.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 3:13:26 AM EST
If you guys just bought more guns, you'd never be able to buy the wrong ammo.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 3:15:08 AM EST
Early this year I needed some 22LR but accidentally bought .50 BMG instead.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 3:54:45 AM EST
I bought a box of "9x18 police" once. As it turns out it IS NOT just a fancy name for 9x18 Makarov. It's only chambered in some obscure gun I will never buy. I have no idea what the hell i am supposed to do with it now though.
