What I did that really helped, was to get on a first name basis with the Sporting Goods Department Manager. She is a really nice gal I started talking to every time me or my wife went in there. My wife usually shops there at least twice a week, and always checks for the $19.97, 100 round Federal 9 MM "Value Packs". When they have it she picks up 2 or 3 boxes every time she goes.

A while back they always seemed to be out of stock every time she went. The Department Manager asked her for our phone number, and said she'd call us when they get a shipment in. That is usually at least once a week. She then calls my wife, and then either she or I will run over and grab several boxes. This works out well, and while my wife is there she'll always pick up several other items we need. So I get cheap 9 MM, and she gets the stuff we need, without shoving unnecessary fuel out the tailpipe making dry runs.

I haven't checked Walmart ammo prices in about a month but they have always been cheaper than anyplace else. Cabela's is outrageous unless you happen to get some of the off brands on sale. Same with Cheaper than Dirt.

Recently FoxNews had a article about ammo availability. They said that all manufacturing capacity for ammo is spoken for for the remainder of 2012. Some ammo may be scarce later this year.

Walmart store sporting goods folks have always told me they receive ammo about every week but it sells fast. They do not always get the ammo that is out of stock but what is on order for that delivery.

Right now Cheaper than Dirt has PMC ammo at a very good price. I will probably add some to my stock pile.
