My department, fortunately, supplies us with 100 rds per month, and up to 300 rds if a reasonable explanation can be given on the need for more. I usually try and stock up but find myself hitting the range often and using it all up =/
On many occasions, prior to the recent run of events, I considered getting in on some of the group buys but never bothered - wish I had.
Which now leaves me to this dilemma; I want to go shooting, but afraid to use up my ammo especially since today our range master told me we're OOS on .40cal and won't be getting any in til next week *SIGH*....
Because I am too cheap, I won't even bother giving my money to these blood suckers who are taking advantage of poor little souls like you and I - haha.
