So, that leaves one store, that is also an Ace Hardware store, camping and fishing store, and yuppie outdoor glamping and outerwear store, that has a decent guns and ammo section. About 100k residents in the area with a lot of reloaders, hunters and shooters and one place for 40 miles to buy ammo and components means that when they get something in, it goes fast. When I am there and they have a shipment come in, I will alert my dad and brother. Last month, they got in cases of 800 Federal .22 LR for $49.99. I called my dad and said I was good on .22 but asked if he needed any. Yep. Bought a box for him. I also know that my girlfriend works with a nice older guy that is into guns as well. I texted her that the store had a bunch of powder and ammo come in and to tell her co-worker in case he needed anything. She replied that he already knew and had been there earlier to get his restricted two boxes of ammo and 2 lbs of powder. Later, I found out that her coworker had a buddy that worked at the store in sporting goods, and would alert him whenever a shipment of ammo, or powder, or primers would come in. I remarked that sounded awesome and to have her coworker let her know if any small pistol primers show up since I'm a little low and would like to get a couple hundred extra any chance I could. She replied that she mentioned to her co-worker that I would love to know when stuff comes in and he flat out refused. Said he doesn't let ANYBODY know when components come in. I don't get it. Once you get your two box limit or whatever, why not let a family member or friend know that ammo is available. Every time I've been at the store and found ammo available, I have seen at least a couple of people on their phones telling someone about it. I see it as gun owners looking out for their fellow brothers and sisters-in-arms. Funny, last time I was there, all the powder that had recently come in was picked over and all that was left was Trail Boss and Lil' Gun. I use Trail Boss for .45 Colt plinking loads and Lil' Gun for .45 Colt and .450 Bushmaster woods loads. Pretty specific and limited use powders. I was getting my pound of each when I heard a younger guy on the phone with someone and reciting the last powder available. Then he replied, "yeah, I've never heard of them either. No idea. Under $30 each, so I'll get some anyway." So, yeah, if I'm at the store and find ammo and components, I let family and friends know, and will even pick something up if requested. I found my girlfriend's coworker's response to be distasteful. He can only get 2 boxes of anything, anyway. Once he's got his, why not let one or two friends know? Do you let family or friend's know if you find components locally? I know we have threads occasionally about finding stuff online, but in every case, I've never seen anything be available by the time it is posted. I've clicked on threads 5 minutes old and then gone to the site that supposedly had something, and it was sold out.
