Ammo Sold out at 11AM There was still a 1000 person line when all ammo sold out.
Food Guy Ran out of a semi full Sat
Medical guy sold many expensive thing he keeps around for the pros. When I got there all gone all of it.
FLL were still selling like crazy too. one was doing 15 an hour One guy shop.
And in all the long line not one chair was throw. No bad word to each other. No kids left in the car. And in the end everyone left with a smile for being there.
But not because why we were there.

Thanks for the NW-area update.
Saw the same thing here in the Eastern South this past week end.
Prices were somewhat lower, but still high.
TULA & Brown Bear ammo 7.62x39FMJ was $200(+ tax) per 500rds(lowest price, some dealers were higher)…$405 for 1k rounds.
PMC/Aquila/Sellier & Bellot mfgr. 55gr/.223FMJ re-loadable/brass case, was $300-325 for 500rds…$605 & up for 1k rounds.
Decent MAK-90s were going for $850-950…& bare bones/straight-stick Bushmaster AR-15s were fetching $1250.00 plus!
While at the show……….
Struck up a conversation with a Neurosurgeon from Charlotte N.C.(hell I didn’t know what he was at the time)…I bought a case of ammo & he was right behind me & had a collapsible kick-kart in hand….he purchased 7 cases(7000rds) of .223 & 1000rds of 230gr/FMJ .45ACP…..I was headed out to the parking lot, as was he…..we loaded my case onto his cart & off we went…discussing events along the way.
I helped him off-load his booty into a killer SUV…we exchanged business cards(as his medical employer had worked on my back, a few years ago & he personally knew my saw-bones).
He lives in a SOLID gated community(high end place)….I live in the sticks/woods.
We talked for quite a bit, discussing current events…& I’ll never forget his parting words. He said… -(quote)-:….
…”I think, this time…its for real”!!!!!!!!!!!!!
