There is one an hour from me, same prices. They had no .22 and no 9mm fmj. The 9mm premium HP were $1.50/ round on up.

i saw more people walk away with no ammo than purchasing. i only bought 1 box of SD ammo, cause it was ONLY about $2 overpriced.

anybody else see the same at gander?

I never buy anything @ Gander, or Cabelas as far as ammo is concerned. Actually.. My LGS has better prices.

I put the blame on the government, not the people. If the leftist government would stop their fight on the 2nd amendment, then the prices would go back to better times pricing.

I agree somewhat but in the end it's the consumer's choice and conscious decision to buy overpriced items when it's unnecessary.

I agree with that, but with this government we have now, when is it not necessary to have 'enough'?

"A lack of planning on your part does not constitue an emergency on my part." I understand most people don't plan ahead but they need to. For years on every pay day I would go to Walmart and buy 50 rounds of 9mm and 40 rounds of .223. Now I have plenty of ammo to last me a looooong time and I'm not buying now while prices are so high.

I'm just not a big fan of Goosebump's house of Grift anymore. I was never a fan of their prices.

I wish the prices would just normalize back to the pre-scare days. Although, Argyle, I agree with you. If we keep buying at these prices a lot of sellers will continue to sell at these prices.
ouch! sad to hear it....I really don't like shelling out the $31 for 100 rounds I see at cabelas. it also seems you can get about any 9 plinking ammo for around 15-16 for 50.

sorry things are still bad in your area.....getting a bit better here.
