Have you ever thought about buying ammo online?
I'm telling you it's so easy with Lucky Gunner! The ammo shown on their site is guaranteed to be in stock and will ship fast. I heartily endorse Lucky Gunner and so do their many customers.
"Okay, so far I've dealt twice with LuckyGunner, and all I can say is, I LOVE YOUR COMPANY!!!!
Imagine: only items in stock are advertised. Who'da thunk, eh? The more highly advertised ones - Cheaper Than Dirt, Cabela's, et. al. - will put you on backorder forever and a day. But LuckyGunner - I ordered 500 shells of .45 ACP (hard to get in this "shortage") - and there it was at my address. No backorders, no bull. Business as it should be.
Yes, I'm telling my friends! I'm constantly writing down your addy on bits of paper (and running out of the latter), spreading the joyous news, "No backorders! No bull! Try LuckyGunner.com, you won't be sorry!" Thank you for being there for an ammo-starved public. And, thanks for the SUPERB customer service."-- Walter J., Silverdale, WA --
