I miss the good old days, way back in 2012. You know, back when you could find a case of 1000 9mm rounds on sale for 199.99.
Belle and I had our first Range Date Saturday this year. The great ammo shortage of 2013 has put a real crimp in our shooting frequency.
We've come to the conclusion that we are going to have to scrounge ammo to rebuild reserves. Our shooting range has 9mm for patrons of the range, so we each bought three boxes, shot two and brought one home.
No more grabbing two or three boxes out of the case and heading off to the range. A new protocol has been instituted. Each range trip now has to net one box incoming to the BAR Corp. HQ.
Last year we shot just about every weekend. We added up our range fees for the year and discovered that an annual membership would save us a few hundred bucks, so we became annual members back in December. A day late and a dollar short.
Six boxes of ammo and two extra targets came to $103 and change. Inflated ammo prices are going to rapidly consume any savings on range fees.
Oh well. Today was still chock full of shooty goodness.
