    A buddy and I went to GrabAGun today to pick up our purchases. While there I noticed a 4 lb jug of IMR Red powder.

    I asked how much. They scanned the barcode and the guy looks at the computer and said "how about $50 out the door".

    Yep, I bought it.

    $12.50 a lb for pistol powder is damn hard to beat.

    I think that's IMR's red dot equivalent...

    That is excellent!

    All of my dealings with them have been great over the years.

    I haven't actually walked in there, but have bought several things from them.

    I have a buddy that works close to there and recommended them.
    He loves shopping there.

    They only had one. I asked.

    Another good buy, while there my buddy was picking up a Canik TP9SFx. He loved mine so much he had to have one. I asked if they had any Canik mags on hand. Yep, we've got a bunch of OEM mags for $15 each.

    I bought five more mags.

    In all my years I never found a deal on any kind of powder but a few months ago I bought 6000 Fed Gold Medal large pistol Match primers for $4.00 a thousand on sale at 90% off. I know the feeling you get you find a deal like that. I also bought 3 Hornady Deluxe control panals for $19.00 each and misc other things for ridiculous prices.
    Like a set of 45 Colt RCBS carbide reloading dies for $5.50, and a shell plates for my Hornady LNL-AP for $3.50 each.
    I felt like a criminal walking out of there. The second I was out the door I ran for my truck like a criminal before they could change their mind.
    Field and Stream so who cares.
    Last week I walked into my LGS to buy a 5k carton of primers, flopped the carton on the counter and paid for them, and now, going over my finances, I find out that she only charged me $32.00 for all 5k.
    Mom and Pop store that has treated me very well.
    That WILL make me feel like a criminal for real, so I will make a trip back in there tomorrow.

    I hope this doesn’t offend people but if I paid $32 for 5k primers in a Field and Stream store, I’d laugh all of the way out the door and never look back.

    My local gun store isn't Field and Stream. I hardly ever go to Field and Stream. I should have been clearer.

    You were perfectly clear and we’re on the same page. We all need to support our local LGS but Field & Stream (Dick’s) is dead to me.
