Ammo Prices: 10/24/2014

    Week 29.

    I hope you didn’t miss the break last week too much. I was out of pocket, enjoying Lake Bridgeport in Texas, without internet. It doesn’t look like the prices of ammo collapsed or skyrocketed in my absence. I did find some .22LR for $0.07/rd, but when I went back the 3 boxes in stock were all gone (I was actually going to try and scoop them myself). I’m hoping this wasn’t akin to a unicorn sighting…

    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 teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. 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.
