Is ammo cheaper at the Gun Show or Online?

Hi All,

Is the Gun Show a good place to buy 9mm Ammo? Can I find better ammo prices online? I know the prices are inflated everywhere

Thanks All,
Eric

You'll know when you get there. Have an idea of what you're willing to pay before you go.

With Ammo the way it is I don't see how a Gunshow would be worth it for a seller to discount.
It would only be a convenience factor if you don't own a storefront.

Gun shows for ammo guys is a way to move a bunch of inventory quickly in 1-2 days.

They dont have that problem right now. For a storefront All they have to do is say "hey, got 9mm" on a forum or Facebook page and people will come a running.

what am I missing for the sellers?

For the buyers, its more of a way to buy ammo and maybe save shipping if you are already there.

All the sitreps I've heard are that no, it's not cheaper at shows right now.

Best bet is still online.

Buddy of mine foolishly paid $1/round of .223 the other day for 55gr FMJBT PMC Bronze when he could have purchased it for significantly less online even with inflated prices.

Stock is near zero locally, and sells out fast when they get it.

Wow, I'm going to tell my buddy he is getting into shooting at the wrong time. Expensive guns and ammo shortages. No telling how bad it could get depending on the election.
