    perhaps not a big deal for some of you but yesterday was the first time in a very long time that I was actually able to buy ammo (in a store). I bought a box of CCI 22 LR for 40 bucks (500) at Dicks in Washington Square. they had several other boxes and some other brand 325 rounds for around 20 bucks. Limit 1 per human

    perhaps times are changing.

    The same Dick's that pulled AR's and 30rd mags off the shelf after Sandy Hook?
    Now that's the place I want to support. (Sarcasm)

    Would $40.00 be a 'normal' price for this?

    40.00 is about normal for Dick's. :( Bimart is still at about 20 bucks but u gotta almost be standing there when they put it on the shelves,not getting huge shipments.

    Not sure what 'normal' is since all normalacy has been uprooted in terms of ammo and availability. I would say that its high but not that high CCI has always demanded a premium for their product.

    Keep in mind the spirit of the post - i found ammo which means two things ( to me)

    1. You can find it too if you want whats in y description
    2. Things are changing - i do not wait outside a atore on delivery day to buy ammo - i casually walked in on a saturday and found it - to me this is good news.

    I won't ever shop at Dick's due to their crappy treatment of customers when they pulled AR's and cancelled orders from people who had already paid for them. I won't even go in to one.

    My wife and I will never buy from Dick's again and it has nothing to do with gun or ammo, it has to do with treating their customers like they are... well... Dick's.

    I picked up some .22 winchester super x in the red plastic box like the cci 100 packs for $8.99 at sportsmans wharehouse in vancouver a couple days ago. They had quite a lot of every caliber with just a few boxes of 9mm and .22lr. I talked to an employee and he said they had a huge shipment and it was just the cheap 9mm and the .22 bulk packs that flew off the shelf right away. Bimart down the road had about the same selection too, no .22 and just one box of 9mm.

    I've only been in Dicks a couple of times and only bought there once and that was for a buy one get one free deal on life jackets that we needed for the weekend. Poor service. Both times we never had an employee even say hi, not even at the register.

    Fall city firearms has 22 LR as well. 4.50 for a 50 rnd box.. so 9 bux per 100. Also they have boxes of 7.62 tons of 9mm and lots of other varieties. I also saw powder, primers, and plenty of other goodies.

    If you're in the redmond, bellevue, kirkland area or just want a nice drive. Go pay them a visit. I honestly think that the drought is ending... I also saw primers of all types at Cabelas next to the casino.

    I'm genuinely starting to see ammo start to free up a bit and people not just grabbing everything off the shelves.

    Of course shortly after the drought starts to let up I'm sure we'll see President Obama push again to ban lead and threaten to put the EPA in charge of ammo banning... err I mean taxation.
