    So, I've been here in Evans for about two weeks now, and I love the weather,
    but I hate that I don't really ever know where anything is.

    I haven't found any 9mm ammo, FMJ, JHP or otherwise...

    Is there a store that carries a good selection???

    I would like to stock up on some practice FMJ, I also would like to upgrade from the Hydroshocks JHP's I've had loaded in my PT 111. Preferably Corbon or Golddots...

    I thought I drove by a Sportsman's Warehouse, but now I can't remember where.


    I tried Sports Authority, but after four employees followed me back to the hunting section while I was OC, but none would help me find anything or do anything but whisper in their walkies... I think I'll skip going back there, not to mention I couldnt find any pistol ammo.

    I take my girlfriend to Denver to meet up for dinner with a college buddy of mine and his GF about 1-2 times a week, so any place between here and there would be in play.

    where in denver?



    the bass proshop off of northfield was pretty well stocked last time i was there.

    the firing line in aurora always seems to have it, though its a little pricey

    dicks sporting goods seems to be hit or miss, but i've had decent luck there. and there is always wal-mart

    I hadn't heard there was a lack of 9mm ammo anywhere. Try wallmart?

    i imagine the more rural area, like greeley, the harder it is to find ammo.

    I wouldn't think there was an ammo shortage, its just that I am new to the area, and wouldn't know the first place to look.

    I also dont know any pistol ranges here either so if any members use a range in my area, I would like to start shooting also.

    The last time I visited Wal-mart (last weekend), they were out of 9mm ammo. Said there was a shortage, and that "they couldn't get it or keep it." But I found plenty at Dicks Sporting goods and Sports Authority.

    I was just in the Sportsman's Warehouse @ I-25 & 84th - almost NO pistol ammo of ANY "popular" caliber, save a few .40 S&W. LOTS of .223/5.56 on hand, though. (LE, Active and retired miliary get discounts today...20% on most items, 10% on firearms, ammo & electronics)

    Very available here in the Springs. Try online, if you plan on buying in quantity it amortizes the shipping costs very well. The only thing W-Mart has here in Falcon is .40S&W. Had some 9 a while back, but I generally buy at Ammotogo.com--although Natchetz has been well stocked, too. Blazer in good availability there. People knock the Al case, but they use a Speer bullet and CCI primer. The case is meaningless to me as I don't reload. Always functioned well in both .45 and 9 for me.

    i was in denver yesterday, there was one box of remmington 9mm jhp... not the flavor i was looking for, only other pistol ammo in the bass pro shop mega store was a few boxes of .40

    this is getting frustrating, isnt there a gun range or gun shop in the greeley area that stocks ammo????

    walmarts dont carry ammo here, and the only sports store i know of is the Sports Auth.. and they suck.

    Isn't there an Ace Hardware in Greeley? Try that, if you go to Jensen Arms in Loveland there is an Ace right around the corner.

    Try using the yellow pages and making some calls. You can "visit" 10 to 20 stores an hour that way.

    Saves gas, as well as frustration.

    Last time I was up that way they had a limit on Qty. Are they still limiting how much you can purchase?

    Limit on qty? Aren't they in business to sell things?

    Try Colorado Shooting Sports. . .right there next to Evans in Greeley. About 5 miles east of highway 85 right on highway 34. (Address is 22495 Hwy. 34) They've never been out of stock when I've gone. Good training courses, too.

    I hope it's not too late to help ya. . .I'm a couple months late coming in to this discussion. But, yes. . .really. . .check out Colorado Shooting Sports. $20 for full metal jacket 9mm. . .which is a little bit high, but saves the gas of driving in to Loveland or all the way down to Denver.

    FWI, I recently bought 150 rounds of 9mm from Wal-Mart. Comes in time to time, and you have to be there at the right time (limit of 6 boxes).

    Apparently, Blazer Brass was recently bought out by Federal, so you can get 50 rounds of federal FMJ for $8.97.
