First off, I wanted to just "Run" in and pick up some ammo. Not normally an easy thing to do when it's a damned gunshop, but I was in a hurry. And before you start, yes, I'm a moron for not picking up ammo at the gunshow, so nevermind the flaming on that. ANYWAY, Some guy from springfield is there, so every employee in the joint is over kissing his ass for a free hat or something, so I have to wait.

and wait

and wait



and wait

Well, I'm usually a polite guy and don't try to raise my voice for any reason, but I WAS in a hurry. Finally my frustrated look must have caught the eye of one of the employees. He walks over and asks if he can help me. I answer "I'd like to buy something if that's ok". His startled reply is "ok, whatcha need?".

I tell him that I want some 7.62x39, some .223, and some 9mil. All for plinking. I planned on taking my AK, my AR, and my HK up to the hills to do some shooting tomorrow.


ahem......


"We're all out of 7.62"


"I'm sorry, what?" I say as I look over at several rifles they plan on selling that fire that caliber.

"Yea, were out, so is our distributor" is his reply.

Now this is the same story they gave me as I was ready to by an A3 from them......

So, since I will be leaving at crack ass 30 in the morning....so I don't get to shoot my AK


<<SIGH>>

I guess I can't depend on THAT shop any more for last minute purchases.

Excellent line!

Stop by a WallyWorld or something and get a few rounds.
Don't let the butt kissing gunshop stop ya!

Go to the Show and get some ammo - then go plinking.
Good Luck.

You ran out of ammo to shoot? Shame on you! You should never run out of plinking ammo. Heck, I get 1/2 way through my stock and I re-order but I never, ever, ever run my inventory dry.

Where is Ben's in Renton? And what are some of your favorite gunshops? Who consistently has the best prices?

Thanks

Hey, the award-winning shooter for Springfield Armory (Rob something...) was at Bullseye today.

Are you kidding? Leatham is a squeaker? I'll have to go back the the American Shooter stuff he did and listen again. He sure can shoot though.

I wonder if they busted out the plate racks when whe was there.
