    Going to Dick's this morning, they have the Federal Top Gun's on sale for $4.98 per box.

    This should be a interesting shopping experience.

    I'll report back as to many boxes (flats) they don't have in stock.

    I just bought 4 flats of Top Guns yesterday.

    Happily paid about $85 a flat.

    Happy to be shooting American made shells.

    Curt, call Bud Fini, he will be at Millington this weekend. I think Top Guns are 52.00 a flat and you can get all you want.

    I went there last Tuesday after the holiday and they had one box. They refused to give me a rain check.

    Today will be interesting. I am om the verge of complaining to the Consumer Protection Agency.

    These are part of the tactics that put Montgomery wards under.

    Ok, I'm back from the Dick's trip or should I say, Trippin' @ Dick's.

    At the 1st store between Newark & Wilmington (Christiana Mall, DE) I was able to obtain 5 flats. 4 flats were the pink 2-3/4 Dr., 1-1/8 oz, 8's and 1 flat of 3 Dr.. 1-1/8 oz, 8's.

    At the 2nd Dick's location (Brandywine Cntr, DE), I was able to obtain 5 more flats of the pink, 2-3/4 Dr., 8's.

    $49.80 per flat (no sales tax in DE).

    Both stores are cleaned out except for a few single boxes on the shelves. I did ask both store clerks if they would be restocking and my query was met with a dumb look.

    Hopefully I'll be able to trade the 1-1/8 oz stuff for some 1 oz.....???

    rwm12, Dicks has a Remington (I believe) Game/Target load on the sheves at all times that have 20 shells per box. They have them for $4.99 on sale quite often and many a quick shopper has been fooled by this. But only once, then they never want to shop there again. You've been warned. break em all Jeff

    One time I bought a flat at Dick's and a few months later when I opened it I found that there were two boxes, supposedly of 25 to a box, that were short. One was, as I recall, 4 short and the other two short, or a total of six rounds less than the 250 it was supposed to be. I also had a very hard time actually getting the sale price. They tried everything possible to get me to just say "Forget It!" (or more likely similar but MUCH MORE DESCRIPTIVE words).

    I just basically ignore Dick's ads from that time till now and will continue to do so in the future.

    Really, why would anyone shop at Dick's, a clothing and golf store? Besides, Wally World has 1 oz Top Gun's @ $4.77/box here in Syracuse!

    I went to Dick's earlier today and got what I think was an excellent buy. They had mailed me a coupon good for 25.00 off of a 100.00 ammo purchase. I went in to see what they had on sale and was surprised that both AA's and STS were 7.98 per box if bought by the case. Pink top guns were 4.98 per box so I walked out with a case of AA Super Handicaps and 5 boxes of 2 3/4 dram 1 1/8 pink top guns. Total cost tax included was 86.48. Only bad thing was they actually didnt have any unbroken cases so I had to get 10 individual boxes. All their ammo was on sale and the shelves were well stocked.

    I told the manager several years ago to stock a lot of flats. they just put opened flats out. none in back. he said the computer does the ordering. I said if you never sell them the computer won't know. oz

    Cabellas has Estate shotshells for $4.99/box. $5 shipping on the whole order. I ordered 4 flats of 3 dram 1oz #8's. Funny, the 2 3/4 dram was $5.99.
    $204.60 total for 4 flats.
