    A wise friend of mine once said, "I won't be caught flat footed like I was in 94". We tease him about it, but at the same time, are stocked up on normal magazines, ammunition, and reloading components.

    There are other things to eat so hamburger hits a level of resistance somewhere below $10/lb. If your gun shoots 9mm and you need it you're kind of stuck paying whatever the market has driven in up to unless you have a kit to convert it to .40 and you might find some relief.

    At the Morgantown gun show I was talking to one of the vendors about the 9mm being priced at $.65/ea and he told me that their suppliers are charging them $.60.

    Friend of mine in Elizabethtown told me he just purchased 9mm CCI Blazer brass (his words... *a deal* consisting of 300 rounds and plastic ammo can for $125 each). He*s asking if I want one. I*ve not use CCI Blazer brass before, does this sound reasonable? 124gr FMJ, so I may grab it before he asks his neighbor.

    Blazer brass is gtg. 42 cents a round is more than twice what it cost dec 2019. However you can profit from it by buying it and putting it up for auction on GB. Choice is yours

    That ammo is fine. If you need it, buy it. It ain't gonna be cheaper until 2021. I 'wanted' some more 9mm subs and am ashamed to say what I paid for some reman.

    FWIW, an anonymous source reported that Bass Pro stores in several states were stocking win whitebox 500rnd 9mm for $119, not showing up as available on websites though..
