Ammunition on the shelves

Postby arab1302 » Thu, 08 Aug 2013 18:40:40

So I go into Gander Mountain on Rt 3 in Fredericksburg to see if they has any .45 in stock for a coworker. We are doing a "shoot and smoke" during lunch as a work function. I wandered in not expecting any luck. Not only did they have a pile of .45, this is the first time I have seen 5.56 and .223 on the shelves.

This was on the way home from work after 5pm. Amazing. Mind you, xm193 was at 59 cents a round and xm855 was 64 cents a round. Not a great price, but at least no shipping. :smile:

Thanks for the heads up. Stopped by there and picked some up. A little pricey, but this is the first I've seen in quite a while. As of about noon, they still had 9mm, 44, 357, 45, 223/556. This was a mix of defense, semi-jacketed, and RN.

I thought I read a policy statement saying max of 10 boxes/customer/day.

It was indeed pricey, but at least it was there. That has to be a positive sign. This is one of the few things I try to be optimistic about.
