    Still trying to find some .38 Spcl bullets (3 bricks) in stock, Wal-Mart (none since fall), GI Joes (winter last I saw, now closed), Big 5 (been months), C&C(about a month +), ANYWHWEE ANYONE know of I can buy.38spcl for target practice in this area??

    Askin too much if any ALSO have any +P (lawman, etc.,) in addition to standard loads..thanx

    BTW, I'm new here New member to this forum, retired USAF Officer, retired business owner, ..."played w/ guns RESPONSIBLY since age 8"...WA resident for 8~ years now, WA CC permit holder since 2001, cuz I'm always "too close" (managed a business at One Killeen Center" in Killeen, TX after the assualt by the nut who drove into Luby's next door in early 90's, two "co-workers killed there", was at Tacoma Mall by chance one day early - stopped by and was gonna actually go next day - the day of "Maldinado" assualt there - that place is terrible "thugville" IMHO -, held an "yard intruder" who refused to leave my property at gunpoint in University Place 5 years ago, great job by UP police to 911 call, they were there in about 100~ seconds too! )....

    since I've changed "residence address" in WA from Univ Place to here in "Camas/Washougal/Vancouver" area :PI'm wondering if there is ANY provision to change addy on my CWP? Can't find any statute nor any requirement on the license or paper/card that comes with it??:?

    Always Carry my S&W hammerless airweight a .38+P w/ Crimson Trace laser grips and Speer dot +P's, lessthan 2 lbs loaded w/ holster!... my "lady" who hails from the Peoples Republic of Oregon is licensed carry in OR and WA w/ her Taurus Model 85 .38 and Federal low recoil .38 spl Self-Defense loads, she shoots well!...

    Where in Camas/Vancouver can I buy some .38 Spcl bullets for target practice? Wal-Mart, Joe's (now closed), C&C guns, etc., all "out"?

    Hope to meetsome of ya 'round sometime

    Have you tried the Marine and Outdoor's shop out on Delta park by the old Joes? It's been a while but they always had plenty of ammunition.

    I would recommend looking on gunbroker.com. Takes longer with auction style but you may pay less if you're a bit lucky. Also available for buy it now if you're really in a rush with no other options.

Somebody let me know if they find any in the "$teens" and any practice (just a brick) of +P's are needed too.....wow, and, English Pit in couver wants $29 for a brick of .38 SPCL, WOW:shock:None still in stock at Wal-Mart on 192nd, been out since fall...

    Just keep your eyes open. I spotted 2 100 ct. Winchester White box .38 special at the Lynnwood Wal-Mart last Friday. I bought 1, leaving one for someone else. This was in the afternoon, so I assume it had been sitting there for a while.
