I was at Rural King in Marion today, and they actually had a good stock of a lot of pistol ammo that wasn't way overpriced. 100 box of Remington target loads for 9mm for $23.49. I was quite surprised, as their ammo seemed a bit high to me in the past, and that was if they had any. their boxes of 50 of the Remington 9mms was only about .50 per 50 more expensive than the bulk box. They actually also had a box of .45 ACP defense rounds, and a 250 box of .380 target rounds for about $75.00, which is about $15.00/50 rounds, which is a good price, I think.

I'm going to keep a watch at out local Rural Kings also. In Swansea they had a weekend special a few weeks ago, Boxes of 20 .223 PMC Bronze for 6 dollars and change.

All of my local Rural King stores have started carrying LOADS of 9mm ammunition. Some no-name little boxes of 50, and Ruger I believe. Walmart has also had a whole bunch lately but nothing like Rural Kings supply...

I saw some of that a while back in the non-name boxes, looked like army surplus. There was some dating on the boxes, 1980 maybe, if I recall correctly. I haven't seen much 9mm ammo at Rural King for a while.

Rural King in Paris has .45 for $38/100 it's just a matter of catching it when it's in stock. Also Myers in Champaign has .45 for $34/100. These are both just plain jane FMC.

Rural King still pisses me off about their waiting period for muzzle loaders.

Man you guys south of Chicago get good prices on ammo. Price for .45 ammo in the Chicago burbs is about $24 for a box of 50. I haven't seen anything near that $34/100 in Champaign.

I was needing some 9mm a few months back and thought I would save 5 minutes by going to Rural King and not driving to Dunns. All RK had was that old surplus stuff. I decided to pass on it and drove to Dunns. BTW, they even had at one time those giant sardine cans of ammo for sale at RK.

I need to get out there, I still have some storage room.

Stalling until the deadline and just making the statutory deadline, is just stalling.

This disappoints me. So much for my good thoughts of the isp and their process.

I've got my license in hand, but my wife applied on 1/5 with no prints and no criminal record. She also retired from the Dept. of Corrections, so her info isn't hard to investigate. It's obvious to me now that after a big bluster at the start, the isp is now dragging their feet, and it pisses me off.

There is no reason for it. Our rights have been denied for decades.

I don't put ammo in the safes, except for loaded magazines. Last time I was at Columbia I stopped at armygear surplus store and bought 2 huge ammo cans. One is still empty.

If you just grab a box or 2 or stuff every time you go to town it's amazing how much ammo you end up with without realizing it.

I checked at one local RK, they had about 12 boxes of 9mm Blazer or UMC, first time I've seen any in a while.

9mm is really starting to come back in good supply and it seems the .45 is getting better atleast.

How does that work? 24 hours for a long gun, 72 for a revolver or pistol?
