Shot Price

I just noted that Gamaliel has just lowered their shot from $29.50 a bag to $25. Looks like the wait has been worth it. Ed

Time for me to buy.

BTW...Gamaliel is pronounced by my french freinds as "guh MAHL ee yay". I've heard it pronounced probably 10 different ways by 10 different shooters. How do the owners of the company pronounce it?

We just ordered 2 tons of West Coast Magnum from our supplier and expect to get it for approximately $21/bag. A month and a half ago it was $25/bag.

I just talked with the importer of Eagle Shot (Peru). He stated he
expects that lead shot will continue to fall. He advised to wait
before making a large buy.

Lead is not going to go up in 2009. 80% to 85% of all lead produced is used in autos. Autos are not selling well - worldwide!! Lead stockpiles are building.

If you see the price below $20 start buying! I doubt it will get below $17 a bag at good wholesalers before it goes up higher then it already has been this last year. It won't last long so buy while you can!

Gamaliel is a Biblical name mentioned in the book of Numbers as the son of Pedazhur (Num. 7:54)

In the New Testament Gamaliel is a Pharasee mentioned in Acts 5;34 (see below)

In both cases I still have trouble with pronunciation, it is not a french name it's Hebrew or Aramaic.


Act 5:34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;


Act 5:35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.

Now you know the rest of the story.... Bob Schultz

Shot will still be going down. I don't see anything helping the shooting industry if lead does not go down farther. Lead to the shooting industry is like crude oil is to the gasoline industry. If lead don't keep falling then the rest of the components are not much useful.

Its time the manufactures start helping the shooting industry before they go under. Its should not be about percentages of profit. By now it should be about making some profit to increase the sport. B12

It's pronounced guh-MAY-lih-ehl. You can hear the correct pronunciation at the link below.
