    Cheap ammo and gear

    Hi All

    First when I say cheap ammo and gear I don't mean like dollar store type cheap I just mean good stuff but at a reasonable price!

    OK my wife's close to letting me buy a handgun as she has been against the idea until recently. So that is good that she is changing her mind.

    Now when I do get one I will no doubt want to be able to go to the range and learn to use and handle it as often as my budget will allow. A big part of this will no doubt be ammo.

    Is there an inexpensive website or place I can purchase ammo (LEGALLY) and also gear that will hence let me go to the range more often without breaking the bank doing so! Right now am sort of leaning towards a 9M but not yet 100% sure.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Define good stuff. Chewed paper plugs ears. Quality everyday wear trifocals are shatterproof. Follow the money to gear requirements.

    Only if you want it to. Like a 'horse' led to a watering trough, you are welcome to not see the water for the trees.

    Go troll someone elses thread before I report you. Your replies have nothing to do with my question!

    If you ever get over to Spokane you will want to go to the "White Elephant". Best prices on guns, ammo, and shooting supplies.

    Black sheep in Coeur D' Alene Idaho next to Spokane isn't to bad too.

    I haven't found a cheaper source for ammo than Freedom Munitions. Usually free shipping on your first order and they offer it a few times through the year. I've shot several hundreds of rounds(fmj&jhp) with zero issues.

    Is there some secret rule that newbies get to attack the bedrock of this forum known as the old geezer clan?

    what i find truly interesting is the OPs wanting to find cheep ammo yet they self report they do not have a firearm to shoot the ammo in...quote:...OK my wife's close to letting me buy a handgun.... unquote

    almost two years ago, his wife was still the center of the discussion of firearms.

    one would presume, in the scheme of things, chicken or the egg mentality, one would need a firearm before one seeks out ammo...i mean wouldn't one need to know the caliber to buy so one could even discern cheep?

    So, what you are saying is the word cheep is relative...

    Please define "close."
