I'm the guy that enjoys a challenge and "penning" a note to Academy HQ will be my pleasure. May not cure their ills, but I gotta try for the sake of Integrity and fairness to all others. I would bet that everyone here that reads these posts share your anger and my disgust.No video or affidavits but Yes it's true. The person who bought from one of the people in Academy is a family member of mine. He bought a new 9mm and wanted to go shooting. He spoke with one of the employees about ammo. He was told he could hook him up. He called the number he was given and met the guy who he had seen behind the counter at H.E.B. ( a local supermarket). He had a box of 250 rounds fmj and asked for $155. He being new to firearms went ahead and bought the box. He told me about it and I immediately got pissed. He doesn't want to be singled out at the store so he has not given me the number. I am getting pissed all over again just writing this up. I shouldn't of read your post. I am angry now. Especially because Academy has failed to do anything about it. I told them that they can review their cameras if they wanted proof. I was told that even if they see them purchasing it they really won't be able to tell if they are reselling or stocking up as everyone else.
I had never heard of Academy Sports until I moved to TX. There is one in Tyler. I have not dealt with them as Gander Mountain is down the road a short piece and I found more of what I liked there than at Academy.I'm the guy that enjoys a challenge and "penning" a note to Academy HQ will be my pleasure.

When the matter hits the swirling blades...anyway you can will become the rule of the day on ammo, but until then, fair marketing or face a virulent challenge to the character of any business or full frontal assault on an individual's character. Making life more difficult for others requires a dose of the same.
Have a pleasant day.
Spoon, thanks but don't rob your supply. I am in no hurry. I have plenty of the main stuff. I should probably hold off anyway as I plan to head north to grab what reloading materials I can and bring it back...sooner than expected...like in about 3 weeks. I should save the money for the trip. Then I will have all the reloading stuff I will need for a long time. (plus hopefully my beer and wine and meat processing stuff.)Give me little time to see hombre`. I'll let ya'll know in a day or two. Finally got some reloading supplies in. Gotta build a batch or 22-250s for a buddy this weekend and I've got a bunch of pistol brass that needs stuffing, so now there's the "good" powders to be had.
