Seems like we may have an Obama-era situation here:
A cursory look at a couple of websites showed no problems with stock, e.g. CheaperThanDirt and LuckyGunner. (A little pricier than normal, to be sure, but at least they have it handy — at time of writing, that is.) However, MidwayUSA and Graf & Son show complete OOS on all 9mm except the premium loads.
A little worm crawled into my ear, though, triggered by a deal I saw on the little Makarov 9x18mm pistol. Stocks of the 9mm Mak ammo seem to be quite substantial (e.g. CTD’s Sellier & Bellot) and cheap, to boot.
Just as I suggested yesterday that it might be prudent to have a rifle chambered in a not-so-popular chambering (the PSL in 7.62x54mmR), maybe one could extend that thought to pistols. I love the Makarov (also the CZ-82 version): it’s rugged and easy to shoot, and the 9x18mm round is a little fireball.
Food for thought, n’est-ce pas? And for you Crufflers out there, it’s a C&R transaction.
