    Anybody know what they are getting for Federals? I heard Wal-Mart is already sold out of Gold Medals.

    Walmart only had 3 flats of Federal papers 9's last night . The shell house is $74 for federal plastic and $84 for paper.

    Shells were cheaper at Vandalia.

    We are not in Vandalia! Gasoline was 1/3 the price we pay today. Let go of Vandalia. Dayton threw us off the property

    No, Bob, I'm actually feeding people like you and Pacemaker, who wouldn't know a joke if it came up and bit 'em on the ass.

    But, shells were still cheaper in Vandalia.

    I agree with V10, I paid under $50 a flat for papers in Vandalia!

    That's too bad V10, I'm generally known for having a reasonably decent sense of humor. I re-read Pacemaker's comment and I would have to agree with it 100%. Having said that I don't recall the price of shells at Vandalia as it was included in my entry fee which you took to the shell house and told them what you would like to have. Times are different in a lot of ways today and the price of shells is the least of my concerns. I can always go back to reloading.

    Big Don,

    Because of a hectic work schedule, I will be arriving at the Grand on Thursday.
    Better some than none.
    I want to pick up some shells if they are available, and priced reasonably. Wal-Mart has always been very good, but they are out of Federal's.

    If the shell hut has a decent price, I will get some there .... very simple reasoning.

    Mike

    Bigdon, how do you know if I will or will not be there. The shoot isn't over and there's still time. I also noticed that your name hasn't been on the board. Gee I wonder why????

    As for the shell question. It's a reasonable question. Do I bring my shells? Do I go to Walmart for my shells? Do I buy them at the shoot? Other also would like to decide.

    Coot the last I looked Federals were gone from Walmart and the shell house had next to nome. Have a friend get you some or you will have to shoot something else. Remember you must shoot new shells in the handicaps.

    Auctioneer all blow and no go.

    Brad calls him BIG WIND absolutely no consideration for anybody but himself.
    Nobody can ask a question w/o him jumping on him. + He wasn't even asked.
    I believe Gamaliels is running the shell house, and they give the best prices they can. I don't believe you have to buy your NEW SHELLs at the Grand unless they are included in your entry for the Handicaps.

    Last year you could get REBATES up front. Go to shell house and ask if they are giving instant rebates on shells purchased from them.

    Now that the Martin's $ is gone from the grand, does that mean the new shell requirement for the handicap events will be rescinded next year? IIRC, the justification for requiring new shells for handicap was solely b/c of the Martins $.

    Bigdon, glad to see you admit to being a Blow and a no go. Good for you. There might be hope for you yet.
