As stated, I don't wanna burn up my ammo with a lot of range time, I liven the country on 200 acres so its real hard not to shoot, so I broke my red Ryder and my gamo pellet gun out, I take the red Ryder down to our creek and shoot beer cans and just plink around with it, it is a blast to shoot and for $8 for 4k bbs its cheap fun, I'm 28 years old and I still have fun with Bb guns lol!

I have discovered airsoft. For handgun practice it is almost like the real thing. Check out a quality green gas gun and you will be hooked. Same weight and feel of the real thing. Very accurate too

I was looking at the Sportsman's Guide's latest catalog, last night, and ammo seemed to be available at reasonable prices. I did not attempt to order any, so it may not actually be in stock.

Un funny story-
Have a truck driving friend stop by just last night to show me his new Ruger SR9- Got a great deal, $350 OTD- Asked him how much ammo he had? He said none, he'd pick up some before he left back out After a little explaining & showing him search results on the internet his was a bit depressed to say the least
Felt so bad for him i loaned him a box of WWB

Co-worker has a new .22LR pistol, has 50 rounds and nothing to be found. It is hit and miss when finding ammo. Sportsman's Warehouse had ammo; but, they were handing out from behind the counter.

Heavy rifle ammo is near empty!

I have had a hard time finding certain bullets for reloading for awhile but Friday I walked io to a local supplier, and they were whipped out of powder. 3 stops later, and I still don't have the powder I need. Good luck!

Components are always hit and miss. Very few suppliers even stock the types of bullets I would want to reload. That is why I never got into reloading. It's not worth the set up costs to avoid buying 100 rounds of cast ammo for hunting from double tap. I don't shoot hollow points in anything so reloading is not cost effective for me.
