    Not kicked out of of Kroger.

    We only hear of the bad, so here's a purposeful counter-point to that old Kroger thread.

    I didn't get kicked out of Kroger for Loaded OC within the store. I didn't get kicked out of Kroger for Loaded OC in the wine & spirit 'separated' portion of the store that has its own entrance.

    I did get a kick out of the heavy weight neck-bearded dude who said "carry a real gun" as I was leaving the liquor store part of Kroger. And, I got an unknown 3$ off discount on a bottle of 100proof Peppermint Schnapps, and a free ink pen!

    ---

    The only 'new' or 'special' thing about the above, is that I got a discount on liquor and a free pen, that's never happened before. But, here's to unknown alcohol discounts and anti Hi-pointists!

    Also, I finally worked up the courage to OC in walmart. I didn't get yelled at, arrested, told to leave, griefed or anything else. But, I still got escorted from sporting goods, to the front cashier isles, when purchasing a box of ammo... Because obviously a guy with a OC'd gun is going to risk his right to continue to do such by maybe stealing a single box of cheap tul-ammo. :eyerolls:

    I know, I hate the cheap stuff, but I needed something to hold me over for now, don't wanna tap into my black friday savings. If black friday applied to ammo, none of my friends and family would receive any Yiffsmas presents from me.

    Nothing wrong with steel or aluminum cased ammo. The Russian stuff is dirtier, but nothing a good cleaning won't fix.

    It is less about the steel case and more about the steel jackets of the bullets themselves (and probably powder differences as well, hard to say). Not sure about the handgun world but in the AR world there is a difference, but it really boils down to whether you want to spend the extra money a little at a time on ammo and less often on major components and have a more reliable gun or spend less money on ammo but spend it in bigger chunks to replace major components of the gun more often and live with less reliable operation. Your choice.

    Carry a real gun? Did said guy also ride a harley? I ride sport bike and abuse any opportunity to have fun with people like that. I have yet to have any encounters concerning oc, but lots of people like to knock my year round riding habits. Those who hate must have feelings of inadequacy.

    Tul-ammo was only 12$ a box of 50 for .40SW; compared to Federal (the Brand I stick to for hand-guns, and Bolt-action rifles, religiously) being 22$ a box of 50. And only reason I even got it was because target shooting, and ammo quantities, I like to have 500rnds bare minimum per caliber, and its a bad habit to get into to over look a good deal, even if it is the dirtier rounds, which only comprise of about 100rnds of the aforementioned number.

    @Jordan6679; I didn't see what, or any vehicle he got into when he left, probably just another "Glock is god's gift to pistols" type of guy who drives a four-banger honda with a rattle can exhaust.

    Morehead or Mt. Sterling? I know it is Wal-Marts policy to escort purchased firearms to the front of the store, but I've never known of or had them escort me when buying ammo. They always let me pay for it in sporting goods, put it in a little bag with a stapled receipt and I'm on my way to finish my shopping.

    Mt. Sterling. I don't make it over to Morehead much anymore, so I couldn't say about their deal.

    I have never had a problem in any Wally world, as far as steel cased, I used to love wolf and Tula for my saiga .223 until I lost the gun.

    I have that same link saved to show people that steel cased ammo is ok to shoot in an AR.

    That link shows that even with the cost of replacing the barrel, that it's still more cost effective to shoot steel over brass cased.

    Only if you discard the brass prematurely or if you are not using a premium, custom or hard to find barrel.


    It is all relative.

    yup, but most people with a custom, high end barrel will probably only be shooting their own hand loaded ammo.

    That's been my experience at all Walmarts in North Texas. $27/100 9mm and $50/100 45acp - Federal.

    Maybe used the same deep-sea fishing charter boat I did.................


    I've OCd in Christian County without incident or notice except at the WalMart in Hopkinsville. There I was told I couldn't leave the gun in the car while it was getting an oil change. No problemo.

    I guess I should clarify, June 2012 my house burned to the ground. I guess lost was a bad word it was destroyed. I lost about 10 guns that night, only managed to save my shotty cause it was with me at camp.
