The only place it's hard to get around here is Walmart, but even then the last couple weeks I was able to score 3 boxes of 5.56/.223 at a couple different stores. I was at Cabelas a couple days ago and they are having their Labor Day sale, good prices, $8.99 for PMC Bronze 5.56, and the PMC X-TAC was $9.99. The limit restriction wasn't in effect either, so I picked up like 12 boxes.
Yeah I was thinking of making a trip to Reno for fun. In mind to get ammo

But you do make a point get a job at bass pro and be an inside man for the ammo shipment. It's a good plan but I don't really see working at bass pro as a bad thing they get a discount right?

Now walmart is a huge step down from Bass Pro but then again if it pays the bills and gets you ammo now and then I wouldn't complain.
Yeah I think you get a Discount. But looking at the staff. Old men working. Don't look Promising. If there was young kids I would have a chance. And I don't need the money. Just was going to be a hobby job

You definitely get a discount on some items. Had a buddy that used to work there and I'd get him to buy stuff for me with his discount all the time. I don't know if ammo is one of them though.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

Mo-town! I used to live in Turlock, and worked in Modesto for a time. If you get any NRA magazines(1st Freedom, American Rifleman) they have a section in the back for gun shows. Watch for the one that is at the Grand Sierra Resort Casino. That's the "Big" gun show that is only once a year. It happened two weeks ago for this year, but save your $ and make the drive for next year, they had a ton of ammo, I mean pallets, upon pallets of the stuff! Reasonable prices too. Lots of tables as well. If Cali passes all those BS ammo tax/background check for ammo, that's what a lot of people will be doing, you might as well start now right?

Also, forgot to mention, if you make the trip, hit up Bizarre Guitar & Guns. They are off of Oddie Blvd, here in Reno, they are a good shop, and usually have good prices on ammo too.

Thanks for the info. That's a really big help I wish I could by my m&p 15-22 there but California people are not cool like Nevada people.

:drool: My wife would kill me if I ever went in a store with guitars AND guns. That's the only way I would leave. In a body bag.

We are in Phx and it is slowly coming back. .40 S&W and .45 ACP all over the place at reasonable prices. 9MM, .223/5.56 are a bit harder to find and 22LR is a joke.
