Stopped by one of my Secret Squirrel shops on Tuesday.

Saw a few boxes of 9mm and 10mm on the shelf. They had some bulk .22lr, too. Big 'ole bucket of Remington (yuk) and three boxes of Federal Range Packs. Wanted to take all 3. I bought one for $65. Online pricing that's I've seen ranged from $100 to $200. I think that's a good sign small gun shops can provide reasonable prices closer to what they used to be.

Scheels' ammo supply is much better. Lots of Winchester bulk .223/556 ammo but at $0.75/rd. 9mm availability comes and goes. Still better off ordering online

Still kinda hit and miss but a local pawn shop had some 9mm ball ammo for $19.99 for 50, so that was much better than it has been. Components, REALLY hit and miss, but more is showing up so that is a step in the right direction.

A friend was in Wyoming last month. He was in a Walmart store and spotted three 2,400 each bulk buckets of 22LR. $79 each. He bought all.

Scheels was fully loaded today, especially bulk ammo for 9mm, 223/556 and even 300 Blk out. I bought 2 boxes of 9mm at $17.99 ea. Not great but not as bad as before either

Local Wallyworlds are barren…. And have been for months. Couple local stores have ammo but with double the cost of ammo before the craziness, it’s not going fast, not to mention the caliber choices are limited. Local BX has some limited stock, but nothing I’m looking for.

I’ve been prowling the online places for Hornady 6.8 SPC 120 gr SSTs (loaded ammo, not component) and nearly choked to see the prices that an extremely limited number of places who actually had it were asking. $70 for a box of 20? Yeah, no!

I see lots of 6.5, .450 Bushmaster and finally some .243 coming on the shelves. Pistol ammo is hit or miss depending on the day. My usual stores can have a full shelf one day and nothing the next.

Sheel's has their grand opening going on in my town. Just about every common cartridge is fully stocked. I reload, so I didn't check on many prices. From what I saw, it was obviously higher than it used to be. A lot lower than what I've been seeing on AmmoSeek. Typical box of 9mm was around $20. Far cry from the $50+/box I was seeing this past year.

Picked up my recent purchase, my P17 22 LR KelTec. Just on the off chance, I asked the sales guy "Do you have any 500 round boxes of 22 LR?"
He went off, came back with a 500 round box of Federal 1248 FPS 40g solid pt,
I bought it.
I have a major problem hand loading them into the magazines, just bought two easy loaders from amazon. Fixed. I Will go to my local Gun Shop, they have a range, soon. My wife and I will sight it in.
The unknown manufactured Kydex holster I use every day to carry my Glock 19 4th Gen 9mm in, it also fits my new P17 just goes click, snug! No manufacturer is named on this item. The gun belt I have used for 4 years or so. From the Wilderness Store Phoenix Arizona. The frequent Flyer. Weighs nothing, goes on planes quietly.
Still looks like new, after 5 years.
