in the past month:

I paid $30 for a box of 100 .40S&W at walmart
I paid $16 for a 50 round box of .40
I paid $16 for 50 round boxes of .223 brass case ammo made in Italy
I paid $5.25 for 20 round boxes of .223 steel case ammo made in Russia
They had 9mm and .45 too, but I don't shoot those as much, and wanted .40 and .223. my CCW is .40 and I want .223 for SHTF. I know some of the "preppers" in the area, and for some ungodly reason, they think pistol ammo is the thing to have when SHTF, and have been stocking up on thousands of rounds of pistol ammo. good for them. Leave the rifle ammo for me! pistol is a back-up gun, or a gun to get you to your rifle.
