    Putting out the word for a quality product and a quality company. About a week before Christmas, I met the wife for lunch, she mentioned two REAL heavy boxes showed up, of course she wants to know what I ordered THIS time, I can't think of anything except some hollow point ammo, but it's not supposed to be shipped for at least two more months, anyway, I get home, there's 120lbs of bullets, I see the Bayou Bullet label, I've bought plenty from Donnie, but didn't order anything this time. 6,000 147gr flat point 9mm bullets, there's a receipt in the box, ain't my card #, my first thought is "merry christmas to me"....but the owner of the receipt isn't going to be to happy, I call Bayou Bullets, get Donnie on the phone, he says, "I don't know what I did but I did it", turns out his customer's last name is one letter different than mine AND he lives in Florida. Donnie is sort of sponsoring his kids, they are doing real well in competition shooting. He asks me if he sends me new labels can I get the boxes to the post office, "no problem, if we can't help each other the way the rest of the country is right now, we're screwed". I mention that it can't be cheap mailing these heavy boxes around, he laughs, "considering I'm giving them the bullets at less than half price, mailing 'em twice, I think I'm going backwards on this one". I get the labels, Christmas eve morning I grab my hand cart, (those little boxes are freakin' heavy), head off to the post office not knowing what kind of line I might run into, turns out to be no problem. I just got a 'care package' from Donnie, sent me a bunch of the bullets I've been buying. Nice to know that great products come from great people. I've been using these bullets for while, THEY WORK

    Donnie really is a standup guy. I really love his 9mm 150gr SWCs. Speaking of which I need to put in an order for another 1k, I'm down to less than 100 atm.

    I gotta laugh, I had 6,000 of 'em sitting in my living room.

    I have bought a bunch of bayou bullets in .45 and .38 and they are really good bullets.
    Last year I ordered 2000 .45 bullets and they arrived pretty quick. Then the next day I see my old mail lady struggling with a box and I went out to see what it was and it was another 2000.
    I called Donnie and he said he must have double printed the labels and I could send them back on his dime.
    I just said heck I will use them eventually so let me just pay for them. He said great but let me help with the cost and gave me a break on the price.
    He is a good guy.

    Donnie as a businessman is awesome. And he's beaten me both times I've competed against him, so he can shoot too
