Father's Day Gift Idea Day 3

For Day 3 of Father's Day Gift Idea we at Shotem and Caughtem are going after the younger generations for this one.  Should you be starting your summer break from school, 18 or older or know someone who is and have a little extra time we have a great suggestion.  With the recent ammo shortage finding ammo priced right requires a little time to stand in line.  If you have the time we have some ideas on how you might score your Dad a little extra bang this Father's Day.

Large chains that have ammo such as Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Walmart, Bass Pro get their shipments during certain times of the week.  Though they are not sure as to what is coming in on their shipments we do know what has been working in our neck of the woods.  However, there is a twist because they might not get your ammo in on any specific shipment so it might take a couple of tries to get what you are after.

Walmart is getting in shipments every other day and most of the time you can get your hands on what has come in around nine o'clock in the morning.  By lunch it is gone.

Gander Mountain gets their shipments in every Tuesday and you have to be in line Wednesday morning by eight and stand around til they open at nine.  They to are sold out usually in a couple of hours.

Cabelas gets shipments in on Tuesdays and Thursdays and they too are usual out of ammo in a couple of hours.

So should you have the ability during the week to afford a little time to stand in line you might just score that favorite Dad a little box of fun.  As a bonus they come wrapped already so that saves a little cash. 

Let us know what has been working in your area in the comment section below.  Any Dad with a gun can never have too much ammo.  It might even allow you and your Dad to spend a little extra quality time at your favorite range to say thanks.
