    Just got back from the Houston show. I think in general I saw better prices at the Pasadena show in Oct.

    There was a ton of ammo for sale and NO one was buying!

    These guys have not clued in that prices are dropping. There was about 40% mark-up compared to what you can find online or wally world or even academy.

    Of everyone would stop buying ammo for a little bit, prices would go back to normal. Looks like that maybe happening now.

    they are probably depending on the uninformed buyers out there to help them out...

    I saw the same thing and was not surprised.

    Handgun FMJ > Wally World
    Handgun SD > online
    Rifle > online

    I go to the shows now days just to see if there is anything new or different and have no 'special' expectations on price.

    I cant seem to get lucky enough to find any ammo at Wally World.
    Academy is always my best bet for target ammo "fmj"

    Every Wally I've been to in the last month has had boxes, and boxes, and boxes of 9mm and .40 if you use those.

    Same here. I haven't had a problem getting .40 or .223 the last couple of times I have been to Wal-mart. I don't know if this factors in or not, but I'll swing by when I get off work (0700).

    Ya'll must be lucky. I tried 2 in the bellaire area, and one down by clear lake. got a total of 3 boxes of 9mm from all them combined. Must have been right before a shipment (I hope)

    I normally check along I-45 and 290 since they all have a 6 box limit. Seems every store along 59 has a 2 box limit.

    I've noticed Cheaper Than Dirt has been constantly out of stock on alot of stuff for well over a year now. You will still some some good deals there while they last.
