I just picked one up myself. I haven't had the opportunity to shoot it yet. How are you finding ammo available for it? I cant wait to shoot mine. I hear they are ridiculously accurate plus the large capacity mags was a super selling point for me.

The downside for me is that I cant find ammo locally so I have to drive over an hour away to pay $30 a box for it but at least I have a source for it and apparently im the only one buying it.

I got mine for a steal. $750 cash and about $400-450 in trade. One of the best deals I brokered. Only 199 rounds down the barrel.

I'm jealous. If I find one back around the $1000 mark its mine. I always find deals when I'm broke and when I have money can't catch a break.

Who you telling? Thats the way it always is. I really didnt have the sellers asking price but he needed cash and he accepted my trade looking to flip it into cash which worked out for me.

Last batch of ammo I bought from Midway USA was ~ $21.50/box of 50.

www.midwayusa.com

Stock is coming back slowly.

And Congrats on a damn fine pistol. You're gonna love it!

I know everyone complains about the lack of available ammo for this pistol. I know its not in every store on every shelf but how much ammo does one need to feel that this pistol isn't an expensive paperweight?
