Not really enough actually. What I had stashed for myself I sent to repeat customers who need turkey loads right now and can’t for more to be made

I have 9 Apex Ninja 9 1/2 and 10 Federal 9s. I'll use a couple for final point of aim and patterning on Thursday. That should do it. Florida North zone opens Saturday. We'll be as ready as possible. The season will be a nice distraction. Good luck to all.

I work at a local Cabela's. In 2 days the ammo department did $120,000 in sales. When we ran out of 9 mm and 00 buck, they bought turkey loads, axes and bear spray, no bull**** here. Gentlemen, It's getting "nuts" out there...be safe

Funny you said that about Cabela's. I had a doctor's appointment last Friday in Northern Virginia. On our way home we stopped by Cabela's in Gainesville. The parking lot was full. We walked around a little bit and I noticed a long line at one of the checkout registers. I finally asked a woman what the line was for. She said it's to buy a gun. She said she had been in line for 2 hours, and I would estimate she had a minimum of another hour to wait. I was looking at a gun safe and asked the guy what was the reason for the surge in gun sales. His response was if the stores run out of supplies then people will start breaking into others homes; therefore they want to be protected. He further told me he had people buy a gun and then ask him what kind of ammo they needed for their new gun. Understand it was not like a brand recommendation or grain, but like what's a 9mm, 380, etc.

People are freakin' crazy!

Ok, no big deal. I was just checking. I believe I have all I need to load the BPI, 2-3/4in, 1-5/8oz load. My gun just seems to pattern 1-3/8 better than 1-5/8. So in a pinch I might have to buy some. I need to re-up on loading supplies but wanting to try to get through this season yet if possible.

Thanks for the reply
