I also picked up 2 or 3 boxes when I visited Meijers several years ago. I have a few boxes and as I recall they were about $4.25/box back then. Ill have to check the price stickers just for fun. On the other hand that is depressing to see the price jumps thanks to the press.
Also you might as well find a good sale and buy several hundred bucks worth, esp if you have some $$ in CDs or savings. It is just deflating.
By components, ammo, coffee anything/everything. Maybe couple more guns??
