    CCI 550 Small Pistol Primers. Brought out for regular customers and no gouging. Limit one.

    I love a shop that takes care of their regular customers.

    My LGS is getting in stuff slow at times. And they do not jack up their prices. You pay what they pay with their usual mark up. They dont screw you. There's a reason they sell more than anyone else in the state. And they only have 4 full time employees counting the owner.

    Good find

    This was NOS. From the store where the owner died, the store closed, then it opened back up by a family member. You might remember me posting about it some time ago.

    I really like the shop. 90% of what I buy comes from this shop and another one near my second house.

    Unfortunately my LGS is not getting anything in. Nor do they have any idea when they will. These primers were just a case or so that was found in old stock. Manufacturers have stated that the cost of components have increased. When or if primers (and powders, bullets, and cases) do return I wonder what the cost will be.

    Ours gets stuff coming in but he never knows what and how much or when. He has limits so everyone can get a chance at whats there. He does text me to let me know when stuff comes in but I tell him Im good and to let others know. I don't need to buy anything from a very long time. I haven't really bought anything in 2 years. I bought to much before. Didn't plan it, it just happened.

    The 2 stores I go to most have had no primers for awhile now. Good times we're in huh?

    I used 100 magnum small pistol primers last month on some 357 Magnum.

    Some, not much. They are holding most of it for the purchasers of firearms. No 9mm Luger, 223 or 308. They have stuff like 25/06 and 280. But not much, of course they never did have too much of that.
