I saw several boxes of their Critical Duty 9MM +P last week at Gander Mtn in Raleigh.

I keep seeing more and more ammo each couple of weeks. Apparently some types of ammo is slowly becoming available. Although, I asked a guy at a nearby shop about .22 LR the other day and got the best answer I've ever heard: "We hope to have some .22 LR for sale again someday."

babsc01 - Zombie-Max :lol: - I love that stuff. Critical Defense rounds with brass case and green tip. I've got a couple boxes I haven't fired yet. Maybe I'll use some while I'm off the next few days. Got to be one of the best marketing examples ever.... :wink:

I saw quite a bit of 22LR at the store where I found the Silvertips. I don't own a 22 anymore, so I didn't bother with them.

I still have about 1300 rounds of it.

I've picked up about 1200 rounds of 9mm FMJ this last week between Walmart and Academy. It's averaging around .26 cents around. What's hard to find is 380 FMJ, and of course .22lr. I did find one guy on Armslist that was willing to swap 250 rounds of 380 for 9mm.

I paid $17.99 for 20 Silvertips and $20 for 20 45ACP 185 gr Golden Saber.

Picked up two 50 round boxes of Aguila 124 gr 9mm for $17 each

Not cheap. Not gouged either.

They fire GREAT through the CPX-2. Whenever I buy a box of carry ammo, I test-fire at least 5 rounds. These rounds fired and cycled very well. Look out, zombies!

You guys are lucky. I'm having a hard time finding bulk 22 around here. I've been dying to take my High Standard out again for a couple months, but the only place that carries them locally wants $8/50pk, and limits the sale to 1 pk/person/day. :evil: That's just legalized torture IMHO.
