Sold a few toys, and managed to only buy 525 rounds of .22

Ammo prices have just gotten painful


At least lunch was good

All I brought homw was a pistol stand to keep things a little more organized and free up a little room in the safe.

I think I ended up with 1500rds of 5.56 and .223 and a thousand of 9mm. I was disappointed not to see the West Coast Armory guys there I was hoping for some new tacticool AR thingys.

500 rounds of .22, some lith batteries, some glow sticks, some silver coins.

And my wife and kid spent like 150 bucks on a bunch of those light up signs that guy was selling.

$54 for 3k WSR I should have said? For me less than $20 per 1k is good right now.
Wasn't too long ago Win primers were $12 per 1k, and every size was available.

Think the good ole days left..

Cool - nice to meet ya - I thought later that from all of the ammo and EG Plastic Core you had on the table that you were the one who may have mentioned it in the other thread.

And jeez - it was $100 - that's what I told the wife - good gravy! And thanks for feeding my addiction...

ASG & I split a case of Hungarian 7.62 X 54R

That will last a long time with my M38. With ASG's DP-28, not so much.

Saw Ducttapeman at the Oly Arms booth on Sunday. He looked bored to tears.
Link Posted: 8/13/2007 11:51:41 AM EDT
I was in tears, all right-- I threw my back out Friday afternoon. Let me tell you, those cement floors are murder.

Let's see-- I got a stock for my 1903-build project from Art Krause (what a great guy!) and a handguard from Cy, who wasn't even there. I got a 10/22 stock, barrel and front band from DFARM for that build (thanks, man-- sorry I couldn't get back for some ammo). Picked up one of those amusing Bulgarian 40-round mags with the bullets printed on the side: "This side toward running-dog-lackey enemies of the Pipple, omrade Private"--

--and actually came home with some of the money I took in, without emptying my credit card there too. Can't remember the last time that happened. Saw a lot of good folks, too.

With ammo prices going threw the roof even at the gun show prices i am sure glad i made a desision to start aquiring carbines in 9mm. Picked up 3000 rds of good quality 115 Gr 9mm 9x19. The Colts will be well fed.

Picked up a couple 20 rd mags for use on the bench at the range. 1000 rds 5.56, 1500 rds .223, 1000 rds 45 ACP and 1000 rds 9mm. Got great service from James table. Should be set for next year or 2 on ammo. Prices are GOING UP! and won't be coming down until China stops building, wars stop happening, or the economy tanks.

Had to work Saturday and went to the show on Sunday. Not much good stuff left on Sunday. Got 1000 rds of 45ACP, it's not going to get cheaper any time soon. Was looking for a 22 conversion unit for my 1911s but didn't find any at the show. Saw a couple of nice S&W 357s with 4 in barrels, almost bought one but really wanted the 22 conversion unit. Stopped by Champion Arms on the way home and they had 2 Kimber conversion units, one stainless and one black. Bought the black one and will hit the range this coming Sunday to try it out. They are extremely well made and finished. Ordered 2 more mags from Midway for the conversion unit. They should be here Thursday or Friday.

A 45 may not expand but it will never be smaller than .45!!
