    Gun-YES, Permit-YES, Bullets-Not so much...

    Got my gun a month ago, although with my husbands knee surgery, then he had to work the home show last 2 weeks, we haven't gotten to go out and shoot it. Now it's almost impossible to find my 9MM ammo.

    I guess in time stores will get restocked, but right now there is no 9MM ammo available. Sure, we managed to get some, but one trip to the range is going to wipe us out in like half an hour since we both have 9MM's.

    When the stores do get restocked, it's going to be pricey.

    Anyways, kinda bummed...all dressed up and no where to go. Lol.

    But, with that new pistol on your hip, you're looking good while you're waiting!

    I suggest that you look around at some of the pawn shops and independent gun shops for 9mm ammo. I've had better success in these venues than in the "Big Box" stores such as WalMart, Sportsmans Warehouse, etc.

    Good luck.

    The thing to do is find out when your local stores (Wal-Mart, Academy, etc.) receive their trucks, and be there before the trucks arrive. Have enough cash on-hand to pick up 3-4 boxes or whatever the limit of the store is, so that you can make the most out of your trip. Good luck.

    In the meantime, you might see if you can find some snap-caps to practice dry-firing at home.

    I am hoping this panic ends before the new year 2014. It will be bad if It doesn't. There is no 9mm in the state of Florida, unless you want to pay $28 for federal FMJ. Found a little gun store willing to sell me tulammo but one box of it for $15. He couldn't spare anymore. He told me to come back this week because he was getting 80 cases of tulammo he would sell me as much as I wanted.

    Tell the old man he needs to stay off the knee for a while and head to the range without him! Then you will be able to shoot a couple times before you need to re-stock. Hopefully by then, his knee is better and you have found some more 9MM ammo.

    Check with your local, independent gun shop. Some of these guys reload and are considered manufacturer's. Quite often, they'll have reloaded ammo for sale. I've purchased a lot of range ammo from one of the locals. Problem is, he loads lead bullets, so cleaning the gun after a range session can be a little intense, but hey, cleaning is part of the pleasure (a few more repetitions of the latter and I might have myself convinced).

    Congrats on the new firearm! I feel your pain about the ammo. I've been waiting to score some .22LR so I can shoot again. I'm not having any luck.

    I know what you mean. I have ammo for all of my guns except my fiancee's. I've never been to interested in 9mm, so I never paid any attention to how available it was.

    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.
