Rushed to the AIM web page, credit card in hand. Too late. Sold out again.
Don't worry, I have AIM's permission to use their photos when I write about their offerings.
This is "the good stuff". Packed in bricks and blister packs. That's why, unless you catch it the second it hits the net, you lose. I only want one can. Do I need a can? No, I have 5.56 and .223 in profusion. Then why spend several hundred dollars for a can of ammo I don't need right now?
Well, throughout my adult life, people who have come into contact with me have said that I have a tendency to always expect the worst. I have tried to explain that if you expect the worst from life, you will rarely be disappointed. I have also pointed out that nothing you do in the way of preparedness is wasted. If you plan for the worst and it doesn't happen, you haven't lost anything.
So, in the belief that I will somehow be able to pass the things I have accumulated over my life to my progeny, I always add to the supplies on hand when I see a good deal. This is a good deal, I just need to figure out some way to keep a closer eye on supply and availability. I wish they would text when things come in, but they haven't reached that point yet. Nor can you "reserve" or "back order" the product. That's because with surplus ammo, each shipment received may be the last.
Even so, I like AIM. I only do business with people who have done right by me in the past. Primarily I buy from (in no particular order):
- AIM Surplus
- Southern Ohio Guns
- Sportsmans Guide
- Samco Global Arms
- Century International Arms
- Cheaper than Dirt
- Centerfire Systems
- Midway Shooting Supply
- Graf and Sons Reloading Supply
- Numrich Gun Parts
- J&G Sales
- Springfield Sporters Gun Parts
All of these outfits are straight shooters who stand by their advertisements and their goods. I have been ripped off, royally, in the past. There used to be a surplus ammo company called Paragon, and they taught me, early on, not to trust a company I hadn't done business with previously, unless it came highly recommended by people who knew what they were talking about.
Those are the outfits I buy shooting supplies from. I have a whole different list for other logistical support but I already did a posting on that months ago, no sense in repeating it.
