Feels like it’s time to start stocking the caches...

Post by 91Eunozs » Sun Jan 28, 2018 10:57 am

...not because I’m worried about anything in particular, but because ammo and spare parts prices are so dang low! Even retail prices around here make it worth stocking up when it’s on sale.

For example: $0.35/round for 5.56 with free shipping plus 10 “free” mags at PSA

That’s a good bit cheaper than I can reload. I’m sure I can find similar deals if I look around the usual places.

I always wait until OSA has what I need with mags. I bought optics, and ammo, and either stuff “with 10 mags” I’ve not got I don’t even want to say how many PMags. They had a while ago, but 10 pmags, get 10 free, it was for a total of $30 or so for 20 pmags. With free shipping.

I just bought a 3 wire braided carbine buffed spring and buffer for $15 (I think it was blackrifle co, I mean prices are crazy. I just picked up a used Springfield xdm 9mm for $300 with 3 mags. Has a LITTLE bit of wear on it but new bbl.

I think it’s time to buy a big PVC pipes.....

God, I remember years ago when gun stores would try to get people to buy ammo because of some impending shortage "Due to the war in the middle east".

I want to retroactively go and punch them in the face.

Looking at old invoices from 5 years ago. Ammo is the same or cheaper now.

Sell the scope for $180 and you're still at 20 cents/rd for 62gr steel core.

Yup, time to stock pile.

I told myself I’d just delete those dang daily deal blast emails from Palmetto State Armory, but noooooooo...... I had to open one today.

500 rounds of CCI Blazer 9mm on the way. Just under $0.20/rd ($9.90/box of 50) with free shipping on 10 or more boxes.
