There is a lot of hysteria out there. There are no legal ammo restrictions on the horizon that will actually be passed. Don't listen to gun store clerks or internet jibber-jabber. Check reputable sites for info or go to Wal-Mart for tinfoil for your bonnet.

Wow, this rumor turned out to be a bunch of bull, didn't it? Not only are they still selling guns at Academy, but they have a large stockpile to choose from and they actually have ammo at decent prices to boot!

Sportsmans Warehouse did close both of its locations, but that had nothing to do with gun sales! It's still a shame, as it was a great store, but we still had Academy, Bass Pro Shop, and Cabela's an hour or so to the north; as well as several gun stores right here in town!

Cheers! M2

I was there this week and the guy ahead of me in the checkout line was buying a whole case of shotgun shells. Definitely no shortage of ammo at Academy.

They had pallets of shotgun shells on the floor at Cabela's on Sunday, and lots of other ammo (although their prices still seemed to be a tad high). It is the only place I can find .455 Webley on the shelves. That store is like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory for me...

Yay! Dove season. I need to go and buy a case also.
No doves here for some reason but skeet shooting can be just as fun and very good stress relief.

Clays have doubled in price in the last couple of years.
I just bought a Remington 1100 and I have to shoot brass only (no cheap aluminum) shells. Those suckers are expensive, especially when it's just for fun.

I really do not feel bad for those that use guns for sport, if you want to call it that. Sport to me is if the animals had guns and could shoot back too. Would actually make for an interesting video game...lol

Hunting is not the only sport that involves firearms, and not everyone who shoots hunts.

I for one have not hunted as a sport; Moderator cut: see comment

It's on Potranco between 1604 and Grosenbacher. One of those fireworks stands is being turned into a guns/ammo store.
