Default Gun Show Ammo purchase report.

Went to the Cow Pl. gun show this weekend and here is the deal on ammo.
I was an vendor at the show so got to get in line for ammo a little before general public. The limit was two boxes of 100 rn, 1 box of bulk (525)
and 5 box limit on 50 rn. All and all walked away with about 1K of mixed
22Lrs and .17HMRs. Pricing was about 30% higher that last year.
By mid morning the line was a 5 hour wait. Yes that is FIVE hours.
And, after the 5 hrs you only walk away with maybe 1K. By end of Sat most, but not all 22LR was sold out. Other calibers, there was more stock, but I did not take notice.

Thanks for the report Occams Rasor. All I can say is "begeeezz". All that work, just to pay up, for limited quantities.

But you got to do what you got to do to stay in the game (to keep shooting).

Thanks again for reporting in.
