We have tried finding ammo at a couple of chain stores in Colorado (Denver Metro Area). No luck.

Chain stores don't do a good job anyway of supporting our 2nd amendment rights. Think it is because they want to be PC. Most of the stores don't sell handguns, now.

Anyway, can you recommend a good store or chain in Colorado (Denver Metro area)?

Can you buy ammo mail order?

Thanks.

Depends on your state, but in general yes. Just put whatever caliber you are looking for into your favorite search engine (I find Altavista works well on such stuff) and you'll likely find a few dozen places which sell it.

Be warned however that most of them show "out of stock" or "on backorder". I'm waiting on 500 rounds of .233 myself, it did not show either on backorder or out of stock when I ordered it, but a couple of days later the 500 round box did and about a week after that the 1000 round box did. Mine was supposed to have shipped a week ago, but now just shows "on back order, as does my removable AR sights, my 10 AR magazines, and my AR kit. At least I have the stripped lower, and the holographic sight in hand.

Green Mountain Guns in Lakewood is a very good store. I was there yesterday and they had some ammo in stock, although the shelves were semi-bare.

Can you buy ammo mail order?

Yes, although many of the large dealers in ammunition are currently out of stock. Try www.cabelas.com, www.ammoman.com, and www.cheaperthandirt.com. You can also get ammunition at the auction websites www.gunbroker.com and www.auctionarms.com.

The Bass Pro Shop near I-70 and Quebec usually has quite a gun and ammo selection. Most Walmarts have quit selling guns and their ammo is sold out in most popular calibers.

I went to the Tanner Gun Show at the Merchandise Mart in Denver yesterday to get some .357 mag and 9mm ammo. I don't know what caliber you're looking for, but if it's .357 mag, good luck. It was all sold out the first hour and a half. 9mm was also almost gone. They seemed to have plenty of .45 caliber and some others, though.

If you go there today, be prepared for the long line to get in. Yesterday, it was all the way down the side of the block and half way around the other.
