    It's in NEW YORK.

    Now, how am I going to go about buying a big stash of 9mm as a PA resident here... They still require a NY permit with your pistol listed, don't they?


    I doubt they'd like me walking in with my Hi-Point Carbine in 9mm and telling them I needed to feed it. (Though it WAS in the car when I went shopping earlier...)

    Find someone in the store that has a NY permit and is willing to buy it for you.

    Telling them you're buying 9mm for your carbine isn't lying...you will shoot at least some of it through the Hi-Point, right? (that's how a <21 y.o. can buy 9mm in Indiana anyway, age restrictions on ammo == pointless)

    Seems reasonable to me anyway, and since I don't know the laws about the idea of a "straw purchase" for ammo, I would go the carbine route and completely avoid the straw headache.

    Don't know why that's a big deal, unless NY is REALLY dumb about stuff like that (and I just don't know).

    I'm 95% sure you can only buy pistol caliber ammo for pistols listed on your license here in NY.

    And I don't even know a gun owner around here, let alone a pistol owner (I'm visiting family, haven't been here in ages..)

    Hence me not being 100% sure, having not looked myself, only being told by an "expert"

    Not like I have the money right now anyway... Sigh.

    Though my grandma just gave me $60 in $2 bills... maybe I'll buy a box or two with some of it just to screw with them.

    Where in NY, exactly? I have money and a desire to flip ammo at the expense of people dumb enough to pay insane prices.

    All the way in Western New York, near Buffalo.

    And she gave me $60, so I could have gotten three 100-rd boxes of WWB if I had paid the tax out of my own money.

    Bought groceries instead :P

    Food over ammo? What a waste. Don't come crying to me when Obama ignities the revolution (pending any day now, I'm sure). I'll be shooting and eating my 500,000 rounds of ammo, all you'll have is food.

    I have plenty of ammo, just no 'stockpile' like some.

    If you have enough ammo you can always convince people, politely of course, to give you food....Just a thought

    Thank goodness I've found 50 round boxes of .45 auto FMJ 185 grain for 16.99... they've told me the shortage is pretty much over... 'cept for .380 ammo.
