Went yesterday, April 6 ,to Gander Mountain in Mentor. No reason, just to see what's going on. Not many customers, plenty of conventional longarms and handguns. No ammo, 223/5.56, 308/7.62, 9mm, & other handgun ammo,no ammo. A Stoeger 9mm Cougar for $449 caught my eye, but I have good resistance to temptation.
Went today, April 7, to Fin Fur Feather in Berea. Plenty of guns, even ARs'. Plenty of customers, lots of paperwork being filled out. Didn't look at AR prices. No ammo, brass, primers, powder, bullets. A CZ 75B SS satin 9mm for $650 looked good. It's still there. Bought a ODNR public range shooting license for $24 for the calendar year, now I'm ready to go to the ODNR Grand River Class A range. Now what to take there now that the weather has finally improved to where it should be. Got 3 ARs' (5.56,7.62,9mm) and 2 bolts(223 & 308) tha need their first rounds put thru them. Gotta dust off and check the function of the chronograph.

I love Fin Feather Fur. I try and get there a few times a year for a stock up on reloading supplies but it sounds like it would be a wasted trip at this point.

Back in February at FFF in Berea,I asked them since the Berea store is low/out in the ammo and reloading components,would the main store in Ashland not be low/out. They said whatever shipments come in is divided among the 3 stores.
A February post in the Smith & Wesson forum site said the shelves were bare down in Ashland.

Ohio Folks are lucky!

Being that components are in short supply,if a member needs something,post up. I might have what you need at what I paid for the 'stuff'.
I carry components when I go to the stores and Sunday,when at FFF and saw someone looking at the primer area,asked what he's looking for and sold a brick of primers.

I used to buy my reloading supplies there before they went stupid.

What are you planning on doing with the eventual purchase?

Elephant hunting? Personal self-defence carry? Wall decoration?

Buy the gun for the intended purpose.

Being a revolver guy, and i believe you said you were also, i'd go for the Smith. I don't know what you plan to use it for, but i think it would be a great close range deer gun.
At the end of the day, YOU need to decide which will make you the happiest.
Good luck.:flag:
