    Ammo shortage lucky find

    With the crazies out in full force ammo around here is virtually gone. Had a friend call and said he found some 40sw hydra shoks while cleaning out his garage. I got 30 boxes of 50 rounds each for $10/ box. I'm not a huge fan of the 40 but in a scenario such as this was a good find for me.

    You got 1500 HST'S for $300? Awesome deal!
    I bought a box of 20 a couple of weeks ago...I think I I paid $24ish.

    That's almost a "steal of a deal" at today's inflated prices.

    I'm betting there was a 24 pack of Charmin that we're not hearing about involved too.

    Nice score. At that price even when there is not a scare you can make some money if you sell.

    Great deal--plus the box has TACTICAL on it so its worth a whole lot more than the regular old hydro-shok ammo!

    Great deal, especially for .40 S&W lovers. It once held an advantage as the countries LEO Agencies switched to it.

    Nowadays, with the innovations in bullet technology, the avalanche in LEO ammo has moved back to the 9mm.

    You're getting the same terminal performance with less recoil damage to the gun or shooter and a higher volume of ammo at a lower price point.

    The .40 S&W is still a good
    cartridge but it's advantage has diminished somewhat.
