^^^ THIS!

In today's goofy market folks are finding that trading works well too. I recently was standing next to a guy at walmart. We both were looking at empty shelves. Clerk walks up to me & says what you need? Me: 45 clerk Nope! Other guy asks got any 22lr? Clerk nope - as a matter a fact other than some bird shot you see - we're out of everything guys! So we both look at each other sadly, then.... other guy says wait, Mr. You got any 22lr? I say why yes...it's old 40gr lead nose but it shoots straight. Him want to swap for a box of 45acp? We both ran home and met back in the parking lot at lunch time (Sat.). I gave him 500 rounds old PPI (Yugo) 22lr to shoot with his kids & family for a 50rd box of CCI 45acp ball ammo. Fair trade and everyone won & got to go shooting. Moral of the story - when you see ammo that others may trade for/need pick it up. If you don't the crap heads that sell it on backpage for 3-5 times what it's worth surely will. :(

I'm able to watch the Walmart app on my phone, along with my local Dunn's sporting goods and slickguns.com, I haven't paid gougers a cent since this started. Wife was with me yesterday so we managed to get six sleeves of CCI mini-mag .22LR HP, and today at a different Walmart she went in to exchange a set of earrings so I wandered over to sporting goods and they had plenty of tulammo 7.62x39 on the shelf so six more boxes came home with us.

I signed up for a "Product Notification" with an outfit called Natchezss. They sent me a notification and I got on the site right away and ordered them, $27.50 Hazmat fee included... :( I've got several notifications from Midway and go right to the site and they were sold out every time. I was darn happy to get these!! :yes2:
