As to ammo
Did find Fiocchi 45 acp for $20 a box at the gunshow, so I bought all 6 they had left, avg price for any 45 was between $35 and $40
Seemed around $16.50 was avg. price for 9 mm
.223/5.56 still high
funny stopped at a big box store on the way home, & they had .25 acp on clearance for $5.99 a bx. guess they don't have much demand for it, knew I didn't have any ether, called my FFL friend, & he said he couldn't use it ether, even at that price.
