Well I stopped in Wallyworld this morning at 815am after dropping my son at school. All 9mm was sold out already. I was told they had some but it was already gone. I am gonna get up early tomorrow and see if I can get some from there.

I am also going to check out Academy at lunchtime today and see if they have any.

I have a bunch of notifications set up with online vendors, got one last night and went immediately to the website and it was already sold out.

Tried 2 Walmart's and an academy sports today. No 9mm. Went to local gun shop and they had WInchester White box at $50 for 100 rounds.

Told the guy I can understand them raising prices a little but that's over the top and I won't pay that.

I am gonna try a 7am run to Walmart in the morning and see if I have any luck. If not I am just gonna wait until its available online. I refuse to be gouged like that. I don't need it that bad.

I just wish others would walk out instead of paying that much. More money than sense.

I paid 19.99 for 50 rounds. Forty cents a round is not to bad. I've gotten it cheaper but since a local store had some I bought it

Went to a half dozen stores today, no .25, .32, 223/5.56, 9mm, .40 and limited stock on .45, .38, .380 and 12ga. I bought 3 boxes (the store limit!!!) of PMC Bronze in .45 for $25 EACH. Brutal.
Some ammo stores send people out to buy up stock at all the local stores, Walmarts, Academy, Bass Pro, etc. Then they sell the stuff for double the normal price. One here in Tulsa in particular. Last time I ever darken that SOB's door.

I don't have a big stockpile, but I have all the SD rounds I'll need. I'm having problems finding practice rounds and stuff for IDPA shoots. Grrrr....

The guy at Academy here told me they get the ammo stock in on Friday, and put it out for open on Sat morning. He said they typically have 30-40 people in line an hour before they open. I'm not standing around that long for a 1 box limit per caliber, 3 box limit per customer
