    No worries man. Ask anything. I get asked that a lot. I don't use a program. The keyboard is on my lap and I'm using my knuckle. It's sounds odd but it works. Although, I make a shitload of typos that I have to go through and fix before I hit send.

    I miss being able to do this :finger: to anyone who busts me on those typos or for any other reason. LOL

    Looking online, ammo is out of stock everywhere. I did find some 135 grain critical duty but they are +p for my 9mm. It can take +p but it's not recommended for heavy use.

    Anyone using +p? It looks like a decent option, can work well for defense, especially given the shortage.

    I've used it in my larger handguns. I decided that I wouldn't carry it in my carrry pistols, tho. Mostly due to cost. The higher price per round makes it almost impractical for range shooting.

    I looked the other day and it seemed like Federal has ammo in stock from their website. I saw a few different variations of +p in stock.

    The order I made was canceled because the website showed it available but they weren't quick enough to update. So it was actually out of stock.

    Found a new online supplier for ammo the other day. Placed an order Wednesday afternoon, package arrived Thursday afternoon. Orders over $100 get free shipping. Good prices too.
    Rogers Sporting Goods

    They did have a shortage of .380 ammo, so I still need some of that when it is in stock again.

    We had a 5.56x45 shortage here about a month ago so I sold 4500 rounds to a local gun shop out of my private stash.
