Default Lucky at Academy

I was getting some fishing gear for tomorrow ... Going to Calevares Lake .. close to San Antonio.
Anyway ..went by the Ammo and almost freaked out .. totally surprised as the shelves were well stocked ..Got 4 boxes of 100 Gr SP in 243 Win ..Monarch Brass reloadable .. Not the best but good enough and $21.95/Bx
I got the last supply ..I usually go to the Academy at Perin Beitel & 410

Lmao - no offense bro - but they ain’t well stocked if some guy comes in and “clears the shelf” of all the specific ammo available. Everybody wants it to get back to normal then you goobers go in and buy everything available. Yes we understand you think it’s what you gotta do. What a conundrum

Congrats, I swing by the ammo section every time I am in there. Picking up 5 boxes of shells isn't the same as waiting for them to open and buying all you can then selling on guntrader or something.

Reading comprehension goes a long ways. He bought 4 boxes. How you going to say no offense then call someone a goober?

I'll go ahead and admit it, I'm an ammo goober too months ago, after roughly 35+- trips in to Academy's across the greater north Houston area looking for 7mm-08, I finally found some in stock one day. The family had stayed in the car, since running in to see if they had some 7mm-08 was the only purpose for being there. I called the wife and had them come inside and we grabbed the allowed amount and checked out and left. To heck with someones worthless opinion of me, I averaged less than a 1/4 of a box for all of my trips there

Had a guy at Bass Pro gun counter point out three ammo goobers a year ago. He says they get other people to come in with them every day and buy ammo for him. He said they had video of him meeting them in the parking lot and taking his ammo.He said they come in and buy everything they had on the shelves and resale at gun shows.

Clearly not their only goal if they’re setting limits that the buyer is intentionally circumventing

Action pawn in Killeen had a lot of stocked ammo and priced decent. I did not need any but they had more than any Academy I have seen lately. On 195 at intersection of is it Hwy 14? I had an odd Doc appointment and do not go to Killeen hardly ever but looking at guitars and surprised at the inventory in a quick walk thru the gun section. This Pawn is Big!

I believe you need to look in the mirror to see the goober. I’ve never owned a .243 but I’ll bet it’s older than you are and been killing **** all over this continent ever since it was born. Best to keep your trap shut and be thought stupid than to open it and prove it. Have a good day……

I very much appreciate the offer guys. I'm hoping someone brings extra and I can throw some cash down.
