Gas Price Made Me Want to Buy Ammo

#1

Post by oljames3 » Sat Nov 09, 2019 12:39 am

I drove by a gas station today having a price for gas of two dollars and twenty-three cents.

2.23

Made me want to by ammo for the AR-15 I don't have.

If you were in California you could pick up some 5.56.

In much of Europe you might go for 7.62

Funny. I always think of my deer hunting rifle when I see a 30.06 sign.

I saw gas at 4.54 in California a couple of weeks ago. And If you ever find yourself in Paso Robles, be sure and visit the Hogue Pro Shop there.
