Guns & Ammo Keep Rolling In...

 ...not only to the Ukraine but to my humble abode. Why? Well, because I keep buying them. If you think it is not coming - and by the it I mean The End Of The World As We Know It - then you are much more the optimist than ever I shall become. See my post immediately prior to this one in which I voice some concerns about WW III possibly being upon us in a short time. Even if that my fears of that catastrophe taking place prove baseless in the future, then what about a civil war right here in the U.S. of A. Think of the violence that is almost certain to erupt if the Supreme Court overrules Roe versus Wade. (An amazing note - I have brought up Roe v Wade in discussions I have had with liberals as of late and several of them have had absolutely zero clue as to what was Roe V Wade but if I mentioned something against abortion they'd go ape shit or walk away because they were unable to make an intelligent point about it.)
Anyway, what with commodity shortages here, our economy in the worst slump in decades, inflation at very high rates and promising to gt worse, crime rates soaring as criminals are running rampant, politicians who seemingly are hoping for the worst (they certainly are contributing if not actually causing most of the bad stuff going on), and so on - we are headed toward a bad place at a high rate of speed.
So with all that in mind, I am kind of, sort of, almost certainly making at least a feeble attempt to prep for a bad moon rising. 
My latest purchases: 250 rds of 380 auto, 500 rounds of subsonic 22 LR, an AR-15 upper with a lower kit included and two (2) AR-15 muli-caliber Ghost Gun lowers
PSA AR-15 "GHOSTGUN-15" Stripped Lower Receiver
You gotta that last product with the FUJB (aka: Let's Go Brandon) select fire full auto position (80% = safe and 100% = semi-auto but note it is a completely ready stripped lower it is not an 80% lower). 
Besides buying guns & ammo, I also just, a moment ago, ordered some gold bullion (damned expensive at any size coin but more so when buying 1/4 ounce coins). In addition, I soon will be headed out to buy some spam and other long lasting food items. Some wise person once coined the phrase: Better to have it and never need it than to need it and not have it. I fully agree.
All the best,
Glenn B

If I may inquire, what was the cost per round on the 380?
My last score was about 55 cents

Glenn B said...

It worked out to 0.4046 cents per round shipped, or $20.23 per box. That includes about an 8% discount and free shipping with a Target Sports USA Prime membership. They normally offer free shipping on cases of ammo, but ship to Prime members for free regardless of amount of ammo purchased.

I guess I should mention, the Sellier & Bellot 380 that I ordered is out of stock now but they have Aguila and Federal American available at the same price as I type.

Roe v. Wade is less likely to cause a civil war than food shortages. Civilization is always just 3 square meals away from disappearing.

You done good at 41 cents !!!
It's always the shipping that turns a good deal into an "OK" deal for me.
I have 1000 rounds of 380 in the bunker and the 380 is my EDC that I usually only shoot 18 rounds every couple of weeks.
