If you were desperate, then I guess it's a good deal? But honestly, unless you shoot competitively, I see no reason for someone to be desperate for 9mm target ammo. Defensive ammo is different. We should always have a bit of that on hand in our chosen calibers.
Agreed, but I'm trying to have enough for a Class later this month. Instructor requires 500 Rds. per student. I have been practicing with about 100-120 .9mm per range trip to prepare. Actually Picked up another 100 today but this time Remington UMC Ball for $42 for 2 50Rd Boxes, plus 150 More .38/.357 for the Wife. By comparison, one local pawn shop is selling ammo at 3 to 4 times the price. I won't even walk through the door. Out of the 5 LGS's in my Area 3 of them are doing their best to keep costs down. The 4th is always a little higher, but is owned by a Local Ret. County cop and does good by his customers, he's just in an expensive spot to have an LGS. The 5th is a price gouger, but has the best selection of guns new and used, without driving 50 miles. Also happy to say That Ruger finally started shipping all their back-logged magazine orders. Mine came this morning. 3 Ea. of new LC9 9 round ext. mags and 3 more SR9 17 rd. Mags...
