    I got a great deal yesterday. Rewind to last week, I was at a local Circle K gastation getting a polar pop and ran into a friend of mine who happens to be a state trooper. He asked me if I was still carrying my 1911. To which I answered of course and then asked him if he knew of anywhere I could get some cheap .45 ACP for target practice. He said he'd ask around and get back to me later.

    Fastforward to yesterday. While driving home I passed Mark who was patrolling the highway, he saw me and turned around and followed me to the house. After I pulled in the drive I got out of the truck and he pulled in behind me and told me to open the back door of his car and take a look at the ammo in the floor board. He had some full boxes and a couple that were nearly full and about 100 peices of empty brass. He said he'd sell em' to me to finance a fishin' trip to Missouri. I expected him to say at least 100 bucks as there was quite a bit of ammo there that was double baged in Wal-Mart bags. I nearly had a heart attack when he said that he'd sell the ammo to me for 50 bucks and throw in the spent brass for free since I'm thinking of getting into reloading. I counted it all after he left and came up with 285 rounds most of which was 230 grain FMJ. Two of the boxes were stamped "Caliber: .45 ACP M1911 BALL". He said he sold his .45 a few weeks before and no longer had anything to fire them.:D

    Sweet!! You got a good friend there, dragun. Too bad he sold his .45, did you ask what he got for it?

    He said he sold it for $500. I'm not sure what is was, other than a .45.

    That's a hell of a deal. You need to keep that guy around your inner circle in case any other things need to get sold off... :p

    That's a good deal. Good .45 ACP ammo is getting expensive these days.

    Yeah, he's a pretty good friend since he gave me 400 rounds of 9mm ammo last year to practice with. I'm trying to get into LE, so I need the practice. He's been giving me advice throughout the process.
