Default We Have Ammo in Stock (West Sonoma County)

Hi Calgunners,

I have a hardware store in rural West Sonoma County. Through hard work and some luck, we have managed to keep plenty of ammo in stock in most of the common calibers. In our hardware store, because of our somewhat remote location, our #1 goal is to keep products in stock for our customers. The same is true for our ammo supplies. We cater to the casual shooter who wants to come in for a couple of boxes on his way to the range.



Because of the small size of our operation, we only sell our ammunition over the counter. We are unable to ship or to take phone or mail orders.

It comes as no surprise by now to Calgunners that ammunition prices have skyrocketed to ridiculous levels. A few months ago our prices were quite competitive with Sonoma County gun stores and even Big 5. Now it is hard to say how we compare since most of the places around here have limited stocks. Our customers tell us that we are the only ones around that regularly have ammunition in stock. We are paying two to three times what we paid a few months ago. We strive to get the best prices we can when we purchase and have cut our profit margin by 25% on ammo to help hold our retail prices down.

We currently have no limit on the amount of ammo you can purchase because we have plenty in stock with more arriving as needed.

Our ammo stock changes nearly every day with new arrivals. For questions, it is best to PM me. Our limited staffing makes it difficult to deal with questions by phone. Also, the staff won’t know what ammo is on order.

Wow! I had no idea! I was shopping for ammo for a Cow Mtn. trip 2 months ago and I may as well have been shopping for a Unicorn!

I have plenty of .22LR, but I have no .223 and I haven't been able to find any ammo for the .30-30 I picked up 2 weeks ago.

I am heading to Cow Mountain Thursday morning. I will head to your place tomorrow for some 30-30 and some 223/5.56!

I LOVE living in West County!

PrimerDust360: We have tons of .223/5.56 in stock and a couple of choices of 30-30.

Uechikid: Yes, we list the caliber, (the size of boxes), and the range of price per round-which depends on brand, quality, and size of the box. In the case of .223/5.56 we have at least a dozen choices in brands and box size. I buy what I can find.

Thanks for your questions.

So I called this morning to check stock on .223/5.56 and .30-30. Occidental Rd. has always been one of my favorite backroads to drive and now, like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, I can buy ammo there, too! The guy that helped me was super friendly. I bought 100 rounds of 5.56 and a bunch of .30-30 as well. The prices weren't the cheapest, but they weren't overinflated and considering they actually HAD ammo in stock these days... Well, that's capitalism and I don't mind spending a few pennies more to support a local business. Thank you, John!

I almost wanted to keep it a secret, but I ended up telling 5 or 6 of my friends where I managed to actually FIND ammo.

A big thank-you to all the Calgunners like PrimerDust360 who have found us and are now coming in. We appreciate your business. Be sure to let us know if there are other calibers we need to add to our inventory.

John

clark24,

When you say "topic", do you mean why are we posting here? I can tell you why. A lot of people are having trouble finding ammo. We have all of the common calibers in stock and a number of the less common ones too. We wanted to let people know about it. Since I started posting this list, a number of people who live or work nearby have come in and started buying their ammo from us. Because we are a hardware store, they didn't think about us carrying ammo or other hunting supplies. Thanks for your inquiry.

John

We have plenty of ammo in stock with more arriving every week. We just removed our limit on how much you can buy because of that. Prices seem to be stabilizing a bit although not coming down much yet. Occasionally we can find some cheaper brands to offer our customers. Supply availability seems to be up slightly for us. We still are not able to offer shipping and only sell our ammo over the counter in our store. Thanks for visiting.

John
