    It all depends on how much you want to pay. Loudoun Guns had some PMC Bronze (.223) the other day but they wanted nearly $1/round for it. If you're desperate and willing to pay outlandish prices you can get it. I haven't seen any actual 5.56 locally in awhile but you can certainly get it online but again you'll pay out the nose for it.

    Personally, I think prices and supply will return to normal in a couple months so there's no way I'd pay those prices, but who knows.

    People are just going crazy. Speaking of which, I get my wheels back from woody's tomorrow. I can almost feel my sanity returning. I feel like its been years since I rode my motorcycle.

    Today's ride in sucked. It wasn't the 20's temps, or the snow squalls, or the spotty patches of ice. It was the wind. It just blew. :lol3

    Glad y'all are having nice weather . . . Thought I'd try to post from my iPhone. If it doesn't work you have only me to blame!

    Boy, that would be a long ride . . . .

    But Elkhound gave me "Son of Ali" so I'll have to see if the NW is up for tagging.

    You could have some epic tags there, from the Olympics to Pike's Place Market. Just don't make the clues too hard. . .. :rofl

    That's what you get from parking on the steps.

    Is that part of the KLRista's trying to be super frugal, to not paying for parking? :rofl

    ORexpat - Don't you wish you could be driving through some of that country on one of your bikes? I would love getting out that way in the near future.

    No, I paid for parking, but it was one of those deals where you are supposed to leave the receipt on the dash as proof you paid. You can't do that on a motorcycle without it blowing away or someone stealing it.

    I was on my Bandit, BTW
