Wal Mart is now selling Winchester 40SW 100rd Value Packs for $14. They are also selling 45 ACP value packs for $18. The price on the 40SW is making me think real hard about getting a Glock 23. The Glock 23 isnt much easier to conceal than my Glock 30. Might have to pick up a Kahr Pm9. I think those guns are just little too overpriced right now.

That's a great deal. I picked some up in Utah this past weekend. We'll see if they have some down here to Nevada anytime soon; they didn't have any a few days ago when I went.

It's tough to beat those prices. I guess they realized how hot those boxes of 9mm were selling... God knows I've bought my share!

I bought my Glock 17 because of Wal mart value packs [:)]

My M11/9 subgun is fed a steady diet from those handy-dandy value packs...[:D] Cheap AND reliable... What more could you ask for...

I like the new avatar, Art!

Any idea what the ETA will be?
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 11:34:48 PM EDT
a lot of people can buy them now. I havent seen them at my wal mart just yet. But I havent been to walmart in 2 weeks.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 12:04:47 AM EDT
They have the .40 value packs here in Vegas right now... I didn't see the .45 though.

THANKS ! [:D] I had a helluva time finding something to stick in there that was only 12k or under... Found it on a FFL's website...

I picked up 2 of the .40 value packs here in western PA. Even though our Super Wal-mart has a suck ass sporting goods dept., they still had some of the .40 and .45 packs.

Found them both at our WalMart in Findlay this weekend. $19.95 each. I was going to stock up on new, commercial .45 brass to reload for IDPA. Think I'll just start picking up a value pack on each visit to WM instead. If you have to buy brass and place much value on your spare time, you can't reload it much cheaper.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 3:59:45 AM EDT
Man I was always wondering if they would start carrying the .40 Value Packs. Time to stock up!
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 4:58:52 AM EDT
I don't even bother reloading 9mm for my G19 because of the Wallie World Value Packs.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 5:25:55 AM EDT
Fellas, FWIW, you can buy Blazer .40S&W from Natchez for $6.80 per box. After shipping, it's around $7.05 per box, if you buy enough of them. It's the aluminum (non-reloadable) case ammo, but it is very good quality stuff.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 5:29:46 AM EDT
value pack ammo for your value pack Grock. I hope this isn't for daily carry.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 8:25:31 AM EDT
$8.61/box .45 230gr FMJ Blazer delivered from [url]www.natchezss.com[/url] That $17.99/100 Wally World value-pack .45 is a good price on new brass-cased ammo. Good stuff if you reload.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 8:28:31 AM EDT
I'm waiting for them to come out with a value-pack in .357 sig... I might have a long wait...
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 1:09:35 PM EDT
Woo Hoo... Just picked up a couple boxes today... .40 S&W 165 GR. Full Metal Jacket 100 rds....$14.95 each plus tax.. hard to beat.

if they would just stop putting it in the styrofoam cartons. it would make it even a little bit cheaper.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 2:08:19 PM EDT
Only problem is, this takes money away from the hardworking gunshop owners. There is no way for them to be able to beat these prices.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 2:15:18 PM EDT
God bless walmart. The hard working gun shop owners need to get in on this. Is it just Walmart who carries these? No one else can sell them? If that's true, it sucks for dealers.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 2:32:58 PM EDT
Small shop owners can't buy in bulk like the corporations can, Cleatus. I'm sure if a shop owner ordered a million rounds to his distribution center he could get the same price, but that ain't happening.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 2:41:02 PM EDT
Natchez cost way too much to ship to the west coast. A case of 45 ACP Blazer would cost me $191 delivered. About the same as a buying the value packs from wally world.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 2:43:52 PM EDT
wal-mart carries the blazers in .45 also. i just don't like shooting aluminum. i don't remember what the cost is off the top of my head though.

HHmmmm. Sounds exactly like what I just said doesn't it? We knew your weren't that bright, but didn't know it was from ADHD.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 5:20:48 PM EDT
Dang! I just bought a box. Unfortunately it's too hot here to do any shooting. So I'll make myself feel better by buying ammo instead!
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 5:41:22 PM EDT
SWEET! I just cleaned my W-M out! 6 boxes of .40 @ $14.95 each! 600 rds of quality .40 for $95. You gotta love it! The girl said, "Are you a cop or a soldier or something?" I just looked at her all straight faced and said, "Millita, M'am." She was left speechless. Thanks for the heads up Shizzle... My Nizzle!

Has anyone chronographed this ammo to see if it's up to normal spec's? I noticed the primers (at least on the .45) aren't sealed. Not that it makes any difference for practice ammo, but I just noticed.

Bullshit Im going to Ben Avery tomorrow. It was only 102 today. It was cold.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 6:03:02 PM EDT
Here's a suggestion...I went into my local Wal-Mart today and bought up what was ordered...THREE WHOLE BOXES of .45cal! That's it! The guy at the counter scanned them before he'd let me leave...10more on the way! They weren't sure how much they'd sell...I told them to keep it coming in, we'd keep it going right back out the door ;) When you buy, might want to make sure they re-order so there will be some for the next guy!
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 6:06:01 PM EDT
I noticed that nobody here has posted from kalifornia yet about these wonderful "value packs" oh yeah...THAT'S BECAUSE THE FRICKEN NAZI COMMIE BASTARDS HERE HATE GUNS AND DON'T EVEN SELL GUNS ANYMORE. FRICKEN WAL FART!!!! although if one wishes to pick up a value pack of 7 1/2 bird shot at wal fart you will be met with leering stares and shocked indignation by anyone working there.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 6:21:18 PM EDT
Went by wally world today and the new value packs were in. [bounce]

I actually bought three boxes of .40 at our local Walmart today. It was all they had. They had some of the 9 but no .45. Don't need 9mm and I can get Fiocchi .45 for about the same price anyhew so no big loss. In typical Walmart fasion it took about ten minutes for the "manager" to come with the key though.
Link Posted: 6/24/2003 2:45:38 PM EDT
I grabbed the last 45 ACP value pack today. I paid $19. I dont think I am going to be able to resist buying a 40 SW caliber pistol for much longer. $15 for a 100 pack is very tempting.
