    Hi all

    Seems I can't go shooting this weekend as I can't even get any bloomin pellets :mad: I needed to get them today to test my aim points over 25 yards on my new set up - in the end I went to a local shop that apparently sold JSB's .

    Anyway they had never sold JSB so I asked for a price if they could get them in for me ? I told them about air ammo and that I heard that J Rothery's had started selling them , the owners said thats fine as we have a good rapport with them and so phoned them up .
    They had to buy in 25 tins and I was told that YES they could infact supply me now and for future usage - Great I said , how much are the .177 452's then ?

    £10.20 per tin :eek::eek::eek:

    I then said rather tongue in cheek , ' no I don't want .22 ' :D:D:D

    Perhaps its time to give up this sport when a tin of .177's are over a tenner :eek:

    Just buy them straight from Paul, there's enough of you shooting them down your way to club in and buy 100+ tins. Simples!;):D

    Which shop was it that quoted £10.20 per tin? I really hope it wasn't where I work but it does sound like the sort of price the boss would come up with.:(

    The ever increasing price of pellets does make me feel like I chose the wrong decade to start shooting again:( and the wrong week to quit sniffing glue:D.

    TBH I am rather saddened that a shop would ask £10.20 per tin even with overheads etc

    Just to note , I have never been to this place before but I know those who have . To say I was shocked was at best a severe understatement :eek: ... £10.20 and that was over the counter :confused: - yes I know they incur a postal charge but a blind man on a galloping horse would have charged less !

    I contacted Paul at Airammo a couple of weeks back about a bulk buy deal and at present he can do them at £5.10 a tin on orders of 100 or over. Round a few people up and get a bulk order in Dave, it saves a whopping 15quid a sleeve over the cheapest shop prices!!! Im sure you'll get a few takers at that price:)

    Thats what we do and put a small percentage back into the club, makes it cheaper all round.

    That's what we do.

    But the BAR deal seems very good for 10 tins if you can't get 100 tin order together :)

    Dave,
    is there anything you won't moan about?;):p Think yourself lucky that your local shop has even heard of JSBs or was actually prepared to get you some! Many haven't and won't. Just do what the rest of us in such a situation do and mail order the bloody things.
    The price you've been quoted just goes to show what happens when you get another layer or two of distribution in the chain. They all expect to make money and it's the guy at the end that pays for it.

    but only the ones that go into the 10 are worth anything :D

    If a group buy is on the cards, I'd take a couple of sleeves of 4.52's, if we could be assured of a good batch.
