I thought I'd give you guys a heads up, Bass Pro in Gurnee Mills is having their fall hunting sale this weekend, and they have some pretty good prices on pistol ammo.

Remington UMC in 9mm is 3.88/box!!

They also have 250 and 100 round bulk packs in 9mm and .45.

I figured if anybody was in the area, they might want to stop by.

Thanks for the Tip! I'll check it out Sunday. Been spending my weekends @ the Illinois State Beach. Gotta enjoy this weather while it's still here.

Hey just so you guys know. The Gander mountain in Geneva, IL will match prices. In fact if they see the Bass Pro having a sale, alot of times they will adjust there prices as such. I have taken prices off the net and they match it + 10% more off. Guys from the trap club where buying shotgun shells by the cases in the spring when they where matching Bass Pro's prices...

I got the Bass Pro flyer too. Too bad they're up there in congested Mall-Land.
Great prices, but adding in the gas between southern Crook County
and Great America, and I may as well spent the extra few bucks at Walmart.

Buddy of ine had some friends that went up there today and bought 1000rds of 9mm for $89. They said that the ammo was thinning out. Another friend that works for RSR (one of the major firearm wholesalers) was saying that the Bass Pro ammo deal was even cheaper than what he could buy ammo at through the wholesaler.

I hear the shit is going fast, i'm gonna try to snag some tomorrow before it's all gone.

Something to do with Gurnee, Il. I'm suprised they have and handguns at all.

I went in today and picked up 400rds of 9mm to feed to my UZI. UMC 100rds per box $10 each.

Is the sale still on or is it over yet?

Thanks in advance,

Sales over. I was there yesterday to go to the range and they're back to regular prices from what I saw.

I have to agree. If there was a Cabelas within 50 miles, Bass Pro would shut down. If fact Bass Pro has the crappist ammo section I have ever seen. I have been in Wall Marts with more ammo on the floor in a larger selection.

Try the new Gander Mountian it is 10 min more north in WI at the route 50 exit. Nice place.
