    Needed to get my FIL a gift card to Academy, so I grabbed another 250rd box of 9 while shopping.

    That’s 5 of my 8 for the Federal rebate. Just can’t convince myself to get the other 3. :rolleyes:

    Not sure what kind you buy, or what you pay for it...but you might want to jump on the Federal ammo on sale at Academy.

    $44.99 for 250, $12.50 rebate on up to 8 boxes (must buy at least two), and free shipping (orders over $25) if you’re not local to one.

    I went with PSA, free shipping. Thanks for the idea though. There's an Academy on my way to the range in Fayetteville, (an hour from home) maybe next time I need ammo I'll stop in and see what they have sale-wise.

    Since PSA charges tax, you would’ve saved $10 at Academy. :D

    The butt stock on that is pretty nice looking. Were they all that nice or did you pick out the nicest looking grain pattern?

    Thanks. I actually got lucky, it was the first one the counter guy grabbed. I honestly would’ve taken anything that didn’t look like junk, so this was a bonus. The finish does need to be polished, if not given a couple more coats of lacquer/poly.
    I’ll do so and update the Yildiz 20G thread in the Shotgun section when I do.

    Picked up a box of aluminum cased 9mm on clearance at WM for 7 bucks.
    14c a round. Yes, there are better deals, but it's not a bad price. They only had one box though.

    Not proud of it, but bought my first non-CJ leather holster. :oops:

    Wanted one for my M&P 22 for training purposes (class in ~15 days), and found a Bianchi Remedy on sale. Guess we’ll see...

    Told my wife “look how much more room I have compared to the other one. It looks empty.”
    She told me “not to get to many ideas”. Lol

    I ordered from Academy and picked it up yesterday without a crowd.
    3 x 250 rounds 9mm
    3 x 150 rounds of .45 ACP
    2 x 150 rounds of .223
    Since I figure I am saving $100, I ordered 300 rounds of .38 special, 1K of 22lr, and 2 boxes of #6 shot for my 20 gauge pump that never sees any love for squirrel hunting
    (from Outdoor limited $103.00)

    I need some more ammo cans, anyone got any idea where you can find Fat 50 cans?

    Bought one more thing for what I hope is my next build. Grabbed a set of MBUS since PSA still has them for $49.99 w/ free shipping.

    Already have some mags with +2 extensions, and getting a PSA gift card from the in-laws for Christmas. Also have an Octane 45K sitting on the shelf, bought for this specific build.

    Now...if PSA would just make some more AR-45s, I’d be set. :(
