A lucky ammo day

    So I am in the office and coworker of mine says she has some ammo she has that she wants to get rid of. So I say hey I always need ammo, well more want than need. So she says she will bring it in the next day.

    To my absolute surprise she brings me

    1000 rounds of .38 special that she bought from turners in bags of 500. I pulled a few bullets because some of the brass said +p and +p+ and wanted to be sure. I plulled about 5 rounds and All came out at 125 grain bullets with 4.7 grains of the same powder so they are all the same just different brass.

    200 rounds of new in the box ranger SXT 9mm

    250 rounds of black talon 9mm

    one factory box of .38 special winchester +p, and one factory box of winchester .38 special +p+.

    four boxes of 12 ga dove and quail loads.

    Cost = 0$ Sometimes you just get lucky.

    P.S is either the +p or +p+ safe to shoot in my model 14 S&W 38 special revolver?

    That is some pricey ammo. You were definitely hooked up.

    "P.S is either the +p or +p+ safe to shoot in my model 14 S&W 38 special revolver?"

    I do not know the answer but I will tell you the same as I tell my students. "Check the owner's manual. IF you don't have one, download one from the manufacturer’s web site."

    Congratulations on your gift. It is always great to get something you can use:)

    sweet deal man congarts total score!

    that has happened to me a few times, but not in those quanities.
    i have gotten 100rds of wwb from a guy 9mm
    about 65rds of old winshester .40 ammo, and a few talons from an x puertorican cop.

    any free ammo is good ammo!

    Take her to lunch, get her a gift card, or buy her a bottle of wine (that costs for than $8!). Pass the good deed on to someone else too.

    Absolutely not! Just send it to me and I'll dispose of it properly. :)
    I don't know the answer to your question, just thought it was funny.

    Oh, and it sounds like this lady wants you to do a lot more than just take some ammo off your hands...unless it's like her ex-husbands or something and she's afraid to throw it away.

    You are a lucky fella indeed.

    That's an great deal! Beats my two best ammo deals by a long shot! :)

    Back in the 80's a guy sold me a "bunch of old military ammo" for $75. Turned out to be about 2,000 rounds of Lake City Match .30-06 and 2500 rounds of mostly Lake City Match .308 with a few cans of loose assorted match .308 thrown in.

    A few years back a friend of mine had a family member who was moving and wanted to sell off some stuff. I bought 1000 rounds of 9mm WWB plinking ammo and 1000 rounds of Black Talon for $200. Realizing Black Talon was all hype, I sold it off at market price at a gun show, made a nice chunk of money on the deal and went on to shoot up the plinking ammo, myself.

    :eek: Wow, that blows away my freebie ammo by a mile. I got two 20-rd boxes of Wolf 7.62x39mm for free & I was all happy about that! Nice deal! Definitely buy the woman lunch or something, at the very least.

    Wonder if her EX husband has figured out where his ammo is???

    That's funny that you both said this. She is a deputy and bought tons of ammo to practice with before she went to patrol. Well her patrol time is over for now and she said it was just stitting here and needed to get rid of it.

    LOL well sir if for one small fact I might think you were right, I'll let you figure that little fact out.

    And I will be buying her lunch or something nice:)

    That Spouse Thing . . .

    You're kinda married, dude.

    By the way, how's your hand?

    Nope I am not married:)

    And that post a long time ago was an article I copied and pasted about someone else, I have never had a nd or ad, or shot myself. but thanks for asking.

    Rats. And I was so clever, too!

    I guess the other possibility is age difference.

    She would, I'm guessing, be older than you by some margin.

    Go ahead, embarrass me some more. I can take it.

    Nope not age difference either, keep guessing:) use the non Politically Correct side of your brain.

    Just a guess, but any of
    A) she's not into guys,
    B) you're not into girls,
    C) you're a (straight) woman yourself.

    (Hey, you said non-PC, and I don't feel like going through all of your posts to figure it out.)
