Bass Pro fully stocked with optics now!!

I stopped into the BPS at Arundel Mills on Saturday just to look around some and to my surprise they still had a large supply of ammo from the mornings delivery. Mostly 5.56 in 55gr and 62gr.

I also walked over to the gun counter to see what was new. They were completely stocked with scopes/optics. I was shocked at the selection. For so many months now the optics selection was minimal. Now they have everything. If you looking for a new scope/optic I would go there now. Lots of great choices there.

I was at Bass Pro on Saturday, also. Right around 2:00 p.m.
Went there after leaving Mountain Road. My wife went to see a friend at a jewelry store.

Didn't see 'spit' for ammo, except for some Federal 20 ga #3 Buck (65 boxes on the shelf.)
I did see 3 boxes of .308 for $59.99/box.

I needed some, so, I picked up 10 boxes of 5.
Also picked up some .454" round ball and some Pyrodex fffg powder.

Got to the check-out, and they would only let me buy 5 boxes of the #3 buck and NO round balls.

"There were NO SIGNS of quantities allowed, anywhere."

"You might take them into the parking lot and sell them."

"Hahahahahahaaaaaaa. Lady, I drove 65 miles to buy this stuff. I'm not sellin' anything."


My wife bought 5 boxes of #3 Buck. Left the round ball sitting on the counter.

Think I’d hit up Gander in Fredericksburg before making a run to BPS. Understand if in the area though.

Sorry to hear you missed out. there seemed to be a fair amount when I got there. I guess it only takes about 1/2 hour for people to grab it all up.

Might stop there, too.

I have the day to myself. ANYTHING is possible!!!!!!
My wife, oldest son, his wife and the grandson are going to "Lego Land" in PA.
My daughter-in-law's Mom is going too. Not enough room for a gray-haired, old GrandPa in the Explorer.

Green Top
Bass Pro
Gander Mountain

Might have to stop at "Dickie's BBQ" across the river, too!

I can tell you Green Top is cleaned out of everything except shotguns! They have nothing. My wife's father lives 5min from there and he checks in regularly. I was there the other day and all they had reloading wise was a ton of 150gr 308 and 6mm a-tips. No primers and 2 8lb jugs of tightwad.

Must have missed it. The shelves where they used to keep ammo, had doggie beds stacked up.
The shelf where the 20 ga. #3B and .308 ammo was, had nothing else on it.
Even my wife commented that she'd never seen BP that way.

Oh well. Just killin' time, mostly. Thanks for the heads up!

I met an MDSer to trade ammo in the BP parking lot today, around 215. A guy walked by grinning and asked if we were selling ammo. I'm guessing he thought one of us was selling something the other just scored. That must be a common thing now.
