I'm located 20 min from their Ft.Worth Texas location. Last time I went in there - they had 7 people working with a store full of people. Waited about 5 min for someone to help me grab a $10 part. Was passed up for people waiting to see a $2000 + overpriced AR.

They have lost my business.

I realized you can get the same part for much cheaper on amazon.

Ill be looking at amazon for parts these days. I wish amazon carried guns and ammo

PPS, PPQ, or P99?

I won't be carrying a pistol on my hip often.

Run the numbers...don't forget transfer fees, shipping, sales tax, etc.

See what the transfer cost is. I bought my Springfield locally which has benefitted me because they helped me out when I got a recased bullet jammed. It was live so I didn't wanna touch that crap.

I'm officially pissed. This is the first time all this hoopla has affected me. There's no 9mm anywhere locally. Ugh. No range today.
I don't have 5,000 rounds stockpiled like everyone and their mother right now.

I haven't been to the range since all of this crap started. I've got roughly 1,000 rounds of 9mm, but I don't want to burn through it nor do I want to pay a premium for it.

With that said, I'm swinging by Walmart to see what there is to be seen this evening.

Trust me dude, if I thought I'd be able to get ammo fairly readily in the next few weeks to months, I would sell what I have to help people out or make some money. Trouble is, I'm seeing waits for over 6 months for 5.56 at the moment and 9mm isn't much better. It's crazy. I'm glad I have what I have at the moment, despite the fact I will hardly shoot it

Well the thing is, I've been to the range maybe 2 or 3 times since early December. There was zero signs of them running low on any ammo. Guns were being sold and they were really busy. But they were 100% stocked with ammo each time. Today is the first day I've had a problem. It's like some dick bought all they had or something.
Bass pro has nothing. Cabellas has nothing. 3 local walmarts have nothing. Idk what happened.

Your method of preparation is flawed. If you're relying on store inventory this week to predict next week you'll never be ahead of the rest of us.

Waiting to buy bread and milk or gasoline for a Thursday snowstorm on Wed isnt gonna work out too well for ya either

When panic happens, it's already too late


BTW, how are your emergency food, medical and water supplies looking?
Audit them now

There was no signs of panic locally. Up until a couple days ago, everything was fully stocked. Prices were normal.

Again, if you WAIT for "signs" of panic, its too late for you

A couple days ago? Lol, you missed the boat by months not days
