As much as I'd love ammo prices to go down, there are more important things to deal with right now. Like preventing another assault weapons ban.

Mainstream media says that, because I don't like the presidents politics, I'm a racist. By that definition, putting creamer in my coffee also makes me a racist.

I have seen a drop in prices of all ammo. Usually Winchester white box 100 round 9mm is $23.99 it is down to $20 now, that isn't to bad!

ROFLMAO!!!

Don't you know guns loaded with ammo bought after 10 pm are more likely to kill people than guns loaded with ammo bought during the day?

I kind of like the idea of a DA first shot and SA after that. I'll be following this thread because this is something I had no idea about.

Many semi-autos are DA/SA. With a SAO (single action only) like the 1911 an external safety is a must have, otherwise you must carry it decocked. A DA/SA eliminates the need for the external safety and allows the gun to fire when in a hammer down condition. The DA trigger pull weight is similar to a revolver so there is less risk of an ND, again just like a revolver. Many consider the proper carry conditions to be as follows: SA - hammer fully cocked, safety engaged...DA - hammer decocked, safety off.
