    I use SG for most of my ammo buys too. Good prices and quick shipping with reasonable shipping costs. $14 for a case of .32acp or $16 for a case of 9mm. Some sites charge $45 for the same case of ammo. $244 total for a case of 1000 rounds of .32acp. Not cheap but that should last me a pretty long time in my two .32 pistols that I use for fun range days. The ammo cost as much as the gun.
    Judging by today's left wing, looks like Senator Joe McCarthy was right after all.

    The problem seems to be spare mags.
    I can't find them anywhere.
    Still looking...
    If you have a source I'd sure like to know

    I've ordered 6 boxes of Underwood 32 ACP +P 55 Grain Xtreme Defender
    32 ACP Lehigh Defense Xtreme Defense looks really impressive in gell tests

    Mine showed up at the FFL on friday. It was a "standard condition" gun and not as nice as Ripley's, but I like what I received for the price I got it home for ($280). It was a touch dirty, typical of a long time in storage, but still very nice.
    Shot seldom, carried just a bit.
    Magazines will be the issue, the .32acp mags were never a big seller stateside and stock here has always been thin. Within 24hrs of these guns being announced for sale, the nation wide supply of these mags was bought up. I started looking for the mags before I ordered the gun. I never found one in stock, but I have faith they will eventually be available.
    So, today I bought some ammo and a new rug to store it in and have tucked it away in the safe. I look forward to shooting it soon once I get another (kind of rare) day off...
    I'll add some pics later.

    Peace
    I was once asked if I was "a paranoid for carrying my Kahr".
    "Nope" I said, "just prepared".
    " prepared for what" he asked?
    "more stuff than you are"
    God Bless our Troups!

    A little birdy told me that -
    "~600 mags will hit the distributors of the surplus guns in 2-3 weeks.
    Keep your ear to the ground..."

    Bud, I check my sources about twice a day... got someone I should bookmark or get in on their email chain?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    Peace.

    Still on the hunt for more mags.
    If I only have one, this won't be much of a gun for me...
    More mags and I'll start feeling comfortable

    Mine looks nice, just a touch of holster wear on the high spots forward, but still real nice for a “standard grade” pistol.
    I had planned to go shoot it last weekend, but spent the time at the hospital instead, gaining a new granddaughter!!
    More than fair trade!
    Magazines will be short for some time to come. New mags won’t hit the US shores until Halloween and it appears there will be no “surplus” mags due to so many states having “10 rounds or less” laws.
    I’ll buy what I can get on the first day I can get them... sigh.
    Mine is nice enough to have me thinking about buying a second one (that I really don’t need, but why not?).
    Y’all have a great day.

    Peace

    Looks like sometime around Halloween the mags will hit the distributors. Stay Tuned
