Finding Ammo

I just spent the better part of an hour trying to find .45 Colt Leverevolution ammo. I frst tried Cabelas, then Bass Pro, Midway shooters supplies, Sportsmans Guide and many many others that I googled, around 12 to 13 vendors. I finally called Hornady who only sells wholesale who told me they had none in stock but gave me the names and numbers of two places, one in Iowa and one in MS. I bought the last two boxes the place in MS had in stock. This is getting ridiculous with the ammo shortage.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Finding Ammo

Maybe that is all the stores can get.
