The elusive 9mm round.
The federal gubmint has been buying hollow points by the billion. The scarcity of 9mm fmj is because of our fellow citizens freaking out.
Stopped by an outdoors store with a name similar to Bird Hill this evening just on the off chance there might be one measly box of 9mm.
What I did see was a fair amount of .38, .45 and .40 caliber. More .38 and .40.
The BAR executive directors decided that the household would be all 9mm for economy of scale when buying ammunition. Seemed like a good idea at the time, and for a while, it was. A case of 1000 would last upwards of 5 weeks. The last case ran out a while back.
We haven't been to the range in a while now - just can't bring ourselves to punch holes in paper with hollow points.
I see Ruger makes the same model pistol I have in 9mm in a .40 caliber. Hmmmmm.
The neighborhood gun store, right around the corner carries that model. Hmmmmm.
