I drove past several gated communities on the way to pick her up. Those just felt weird to me.
On the way there I stopped by Island Lake Shooting range and scrounged some shotgun hulls. The grounds keeper had twenty gallons of them in the back of his gator. He graciously gave me five gallons. I wish I had thought ahead to bring some trash bags. He LIKES to have people recycle them. It bothers him to send perfectly usable goods to a landfill.
I called up Russ Nelson at Family Shooters Corral. I asked about 9mm Luger brass and he said he did not have any. I was stunned.
Folks come out to shooting ranges and shoot 9mm 50, 100, 500 at a sitting.
Russ said that people seemed to be transitioning to 9mm from both directions. People who used to shoot .22 LR moved to 9mm because the 9mm is reloadable and if you cannot find ammo in the stores you can reload your own. Folks also paid attention to the FBI moving from 40 S&W as their standard sidearm to 9mm. Right, wrong or indifferent....following the FBI's lead is an easy decision to defend. Such is life in a litigeous society.
I have the itch to reload some ammo. Nothing but wind and rain outside.
