Stupid post, but hey...I'm excited!:p

Browsing around in a small gunshow today, spied a case of Wolf marked $169.:eek:

Had to get it. I think the guy forgot the prices went up recently. It was real entertainment trying to get all this in the bags on my motorcycle too.

Just two days ago I went into my local GS and saw Golden Tiger went up from $3.99 to $5.15. It's my favorite caliber and is still relatively inexpensive compared to most other rifle calibers, but ouch.

No, no, no! That's the whole point of carrying bungies and a cable lock in the bags, so you can lash cases or other bulky stuff onto the pillion seat or luggage rack. I keep getting weird looks at the liquor store or grocery store when I buy beer or pop while in riding gear. It's even more fun when I have the trailer on the back and get a whole cart full of groceries or buy a long gun.:D

Kewl getting a deal on the ammo and not letting your transportation get in the way.

'Grats, man! That's a good score today.

It was only last January that I first bought a whole case of ammo at once. It was still a couple of months yet before I started buying ammo cans.

Me and Mama goin' out for Chinese tonight. Gonna stop off at Wally world to pick up a couple of boxes of SHTF ammo. Since I'm working lots of OT I figure ammo won't any cheaper and a couple of boxes a week won't hurt.

I bought my first case of ammo before I even had a rifle :)

Can you imagine have a case of 7.62x39 sitting in the corner, sulking because you have nothing to shoot it out of?

Thankfully that's now been resolved and with metal prices the way they are, I think I need to get a couple more -now- before the price really bounces.
