Default Internet source for ammo

There have been several suggestions here recently. Can't find the threads on my searches. I am looking for some plain old hollow point 38 special and I would have bet against it yesterday but from what I read today it's gonna be a background check just to buy ammo which I am guessing will mean many places will just stop selling the stuff. They are saying the checks will take minutes. Ii have always waited 10 or 20 to buy a gun and I have a pistol permit. It's gonna be a clusterfluk if this passes. And right now - looks like it might.

Anyway - what sites are easy to use??? - I've used Cabelas in the past so willl try them also. Last order or #4 buck was backordered.

thanks

Luckygunner, bulkammo, and ammoman all have some .38. Not cheap but they have it.

More likely internet vendors will stop shipping to CT, as they already did with other states that have overbearing laws on ammo purchase.

Any idea when the new law will go into effect in CT?

Yea that is what is scary. If it passes it COULD go into effect this week. What was that ammo you suggested - - for my S and W 642 - I want as low power as possible cuase the +p is pretty harsh I hear. I can only seem to find round nose 158 grain stuff and suppose I will go with that. I paid like 17 bucks in the store but it is 24 on line. (for 50)

First choice- Federal 125 grain HP Nyclad standard pressure. Also known as the "Chief's load". Hard to find, but currently in production. I carry this in summer.
Second choice- Speer Gold Dot HP 135 grain +P "short barrel". Easier to find, less recoil than a +P 158 grain load. Stocked in my local Dunham's store. I carry this in the winter.
Third choice- Speer Gold Dot HP 125 grain +P. Less recoil than 135 grain, but not optimized for a snubby barrel. In stock at ammoman.com, but only in 500 round quantity.

Practice- Remington or PMC 130 grain FMJ.

The second search site is gunbot. I believe its a .net. I use them frequently. They show price/round and availability. Its not by brand though I don't think.

As early as today - I would have bet against it but... - it passed early this morning.

The only good news is they do not require you to sell anything you have and the ammo purchase thing is supposedly not a ackground check everytime - you can use your pistol permit or get a spwcial certificate after one check. then again who knows - the gun stores are confused as the bill has lots of ambiguous language I am told.

So no real effect on me - I dont have nayhting with more than 10 rounds anyway but a PITA for many collectors.

News report says the governor is expected to sign the bill into law sometime today and it will go into effect immediately. I expect legal challenges- wonder when the first will be filed.

Looks like Maryland will be the next state to pass tougher gun control. Seems to be a pattern in states with one-party-control of both Houses of state congress and the governor's office.
