Early this morning went down to my local gun purveyor to buy some more self-defense ammunition. Recently I've shot up a lot while practicing, especially with my USP .45 pistol, and I wanted to restore some of my inventory. I also wanted to buy some to try out in my new S&W 342PD. They had plenty of brands including my favorite, Federal Hydra-Shok. I bought a 50 round box of 230 grain .45 ACP for my USP and 2 - 20 round boxes of .38 Special +P (129 gr) for the 342PD. Gave the clerk a hundred dollar bill and with tax got back .85 cents in change. That hurts!
