Default Ammo Availability - Elgin

Just wanted to let everyone near Elgin Illinois, Gat Guns has lots of ammo in stock. They don't seem to be raising prices on it either. I was able to get Blazer Brass 9mm FMJ for 15.99/50 and 7.62x39 for $7/20. Not bad IMHO.

Well, terrible or NOT, I bought it and already disposed of the receipt :@

I will continue to buy ammo at that price point in small batches. If I find better prices, then I will take advantage, but for now this will do.

24.99/100 is a great price for what I have seen around me.

What city/state are you buying? If u don't mind saying. I am Batavia, Illinois and stuff is pretty tough to find at that price point around here.

GAT Guns is a great place. When Balota came to visit we went shooting there. This was in early December and the ammo shelves were full.

Winds - Yeah they have plenty of ammo, but prices are a little inflated currently, as in most places.

I live in Wheaton. Walmart was in Lombard on rt 83, I just got lucky that they had some I guess.

I've been stopping in at any walmart I pass, if I have the time, just to see if they have anything.
The good thing about walmart is that they really haven't jacked up their prices.....Yet....
