Ammo, limit of 3 boxes per caliber. Very limited on .38, 45 ACP, 50 boxes of 20 rounds of 7.62 x 39 TULO Ammo, no 5.56/.223, no 9mm, good selection of shotgun ammo, some .380, .32. Did not look down the rifle ammo; however, the staff advised not to - it was bad.

Ammo comes in on Thursday and the shelfs remain bare!

I forgot to add, while I was shopping someone where he can get .22LR ammo? I advised the check each store in the area, check online and also, Thursday's at this store is truck day, check then.

Also, 30-06 is starting to become rare ammo!
The Walmart close to me has a lot of 30-06 but nothing much else. Of course I don't own an 06. This is in So Calif.

Hit my limit at a LGS, but prices were reasonable.

You got to watch UPS anymore they just drop & run when delivering packages lately. I found one of my packages under a bush out front.

I wouldn't be surprised - our UPS delivery person laughs at our dogs. What she doesn't realize is our pit mix for whatever reason doesn't even like the sound of her truck and goes bonkers as soon as she turns into the subdivision, well out of sight.

She is good to us though and tucked it in the corner of the porch!

Under a bush - what's up with that?

That is what happens when you don't even stop the truck, and just kick it out the door. We have a problem with these carriers leaving our stuff in front of our garage door. They're too lazy to walk the extra 30' to the covered porch. It would only add 10 seconds in most cases. We've taken to having it put right on the shipping label, "Please leave on covered porch". This seems to work.

UPS is based out of Louisville so no problems like that here.


Sorry to hear that though, nothing like having new toys abused before you even get to play with them.

My LGs have taken 3 different approaches. Dick's has gone PC and doesn't try to stock anything but shotgun shells. Academy Sports limits you to a total of three boxes with only one of three different calibers.PSA only has a limit of 5 on 223 or 556.

I do not like Dick's; however, do a scouting on what ammo and they're limiting what they're selling. Slim to none in my area, would not be surprised they stop selling rifles/shotguns and ammo.

Where do you live? I've purchased 22LR from both of the Dick's in my area (Northern Virginia) every week in the last 4 weeks. Only way to get my hands on it though is to call on their delivery day and have them hold a couple of bricks until I can get there on lunch break. The stuff they get never makes it onto the shelves.
