Ammo Prices: 12/05/2014

ammo

Week 35.

A lot of prices are up this week–must be pre-holiday price raising. Still, ammo makes a great Christmas/Hanukkah/[Insert Holiday of Choice]/etc. gift, and with the lower gas prices, maybe there is some extra cash to put toward shooting…

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

  • Still debating whether to get my first AK or AR. Toughest choice. US = land of AR parts and accessories like crazy, but I like the wacky historic aspect and looks of an AK with red wood grips/stock.

    Ammo prices do not help me sway the vote.

      The AK aftermarket isn’t too bad either, but obviously not as prolific as the AR market. Though if you’re going to leave the AK fairly stock, you won’t need to use the aftermarket anyway.

      I like the way someone else put it: The AK is super simple to use and maintain, yet difficult to build, while the AR is super easy to build, but is a bit more difficult to maintain.

      The AK was the first gun I bought myself (2nd gun to own) and I still believe every serious collector should have at least one. But for now I’ll be “that guy” and say you should get both, eventually. Hope that helps your decision, but I bet it doesn’t :).

      • Just for kicks and giggles – Would you choose rhe N-Pap or C39 for your first AK?

          I guess that’s something I don’t currently have an opinion on. There have been so many iterations that come and go I don’t keep up on all of them.

          Which ever you choose, they’re bound to be a better breed than when mine was imported during the ’94 AWB. I haven’t read too many issues of quality control problems of late in any of the current imports.

          If I had a big fun-money budget, I’d be buying an AK pistol and putting a brace on it. My state doesn’t allow NFA, so that’s the closest I’m going to get to an SBR anytime soon.

      Go AK.

      You can abuse the hell out of it and it will like you for it. Upkeep is a good mud puddle and accessories are overrated. It’s a great first rifle.

      Wiz bangs don’t make you a better shooter either. They will deflate your wallet though.

      • They seem to have a better depreciation rate than AR’s right now also.
