I just asked a friend to transport highly specified ammo 1700 miles to me. The clerk at the gun shop had never heard of Federal EFMJ and wasn't interested in ordering it. The price of this pistol ammo is up to where .308 used to be - $1 per cartridge. Ammoman has been OOS every time I look for a long time now.
I feel the urge to splurge.
Clerks in general must learn that the customer is always right.
