    Academy Sports

    I had never been to an Academy. Wifey and I went down into Spartanburg today, and we stopped by the Academy. They had ammo! I haven't been able to get cheap range ammo since last year. I bought 5 boxes each of 9mm and .223. I think I'll be ammo shopping just over the border in South Cackalacky from now on!

    Oh, and their gun prices seemed fair. I've definitely seen better, but I've also seen much worse! Especially lately.

    Our Academy has good prices on the Taurus PT140-145 series, actually best I've seen for $329, Their Glock Prices have gone up as well as their Judge and PT1911's. Glocks used to be $499 for the longest.

    Re: Academy Sports

    Yep- good store. I just left the one in Mobile. I counted about 6.5k rounds of 9mm alone in several brands. A bunch load of 45acp, maybe 3 different brands. Plenty of other ammo. Last week I saw nearly 4k rounds of 9mm there. The real kicker here- the guy behind the counter said they had more. Same thing at just 1 of our 6 WW's. They had just over 2k rounds (9mm) on the shelf and said more under the counter and more in stock room. The Fed 9mm was $8.99/50 round box.
    And yes- the price of pistols are down also.

    The only thing wrong with Academy is they don't do lay-away.

    I wish that they were in NC so I could buy handguns too.

    Boy, I don't know about the Academy Sports where you guys are, but the ones I've bought from here will walk you ALL THE WAY to the door, with them holding the gun. They hand it to you when you're standing physically outside the store. And, after that, you're on your own. I've never had an issue with a new one I've bought, but if i did, they make no bones about it that you need to work it out with Taurus. If you can live with this, then it's a great place to buy a gun.

    I thought that any WalMart would walk you all the way out too. And the warranty stuff,... well, any place that I deal with doesn't want you coming back around if something's wrong. I guess Texas really is the last of the old South!
