Nice! I scored .45, .40, 9mm FMJ and 9mm Hollow Point from Gibsons in Weatherford today. 10 box limit of each. 2000 rounds to keep me busy for a bit.

Starting at 7:00 I believe they start handing out numbers outside until after opening at 9:00, then they work through from 1-125 calling numbers out with # card redeemed to get up to 3 boxes of ammo. One number at a time. I was 60 and was out in 30 minutes.

I drove by my local store on the way to fuel up this morning. This was at 7:00, 2 hour before the store opens. Last week there was someone with a blanket on a fold out chair sleeping.

After all that time, it would suck for the first employee to come out and say, "sorry ya'll, no ammo today"

I actually got there at 9:00 and got #60, they began calling numbers at 10:00. I got some of my calibers, besides those two calibers, there was .22, .30-.30 and 5.56M. They had 12 ga. shells, .45, 9MM and .380. Pretty limited stuff.

Seems like we need to have a "Who is in line this morning" for a play by play. Similar to the "Who is in the blind this morning?" thread during deer season......

Not me, I just want enough to get through the next few seasons of deer season. Probably get in line one more time, only my 2nd. Would be nice to score some 7MM-08 or .25-.06 but we shall see. Have at least a box now in my 4 hunting calibers, would like two boxes and will be all good.

I just bought 6 boxes of 25-06 off gunbroker. Wasn't cheap, but it's in my hands now.

Moving my son to a 25-06 this coming season and want to get him some trigger time with it. This should do that and get us through the next few seasons at least.

Found a few boxes of 308 and 30-06 this morning, feel comfortable with those two calibers now.

Great gun for kids with plenty of pop and lesser amount of recoil...Have fun.

I managed to break away and go by Academy about 15 minutes ago, they sold me 3 boxes of 7.62 x 39 for my AK. up I thought this was great so I grabbed a case (10 boxes) of 12 gauge 7 1/2 shot and headed to the front.
I was stopped and told there was a limit of 3 and I could not get the case of 12 gauge as that was 10 boxes along with my 3 boxes of AK made 13 total boxes. That sucked so I put the shotgun shells back. I debated with the ammo Nazi that I just saw a guy leave with two cases, but it did not matter they wouldn't even let me have one box of 12 as long as I had the three boxes of 7.62.
The wife said that she would stop in and get me three boxes of 12 gauge. She got there about two minutes after me. They would only let her get one box of 12 gauge. They said only one box of each caliber. So, she got one box of twelve, one box of 7.62 and one box of 9mm.
I am thinking that Academy is so sick of the ammo crap that they are making things up as the go. At least this store is.
Good luck out there to you guys that are short on bullets. It sucks.

Agree, at our Academy it was a limit of 3 boxes, up to 3 calibers and one was the case or mini-case of shotgun shells box, that only counted as one of the three boxes..

Not for me but I found 4 boxes of Hornby 6.5 Creedmoor 145g for $ 65 a box at regular gun & range store, plenty of Winchester Bronze 308 147g $ 36 a box, taking them out west to a friend, they are beyond critical out there for anything they can get, they'll buy a new rifle for what ever rounds they can score.


You'll come to know, when the bullet hits the bone.
I didn't come this far and get this old by Backing Up.
