My brother visited yesterday, and I asked him if he'd want a big box of 38 brass I had, to reload. He said he'd like to, but he hasn't seen any small pistol primers for over a year, and he only had a few hundred left. Something about one company stopping production of them didn't help matters.
He does all his Internet on a smart phone, so it's a little harder for him to browse around and search stuff.
You guys are heavy into reloading, do you know any possible good sources for small pistol primers?

He got a deal on whatever the last popular S&W service revolver was (I think maybe a 64) and has been waiting on primers to reload for it. I gave him a box of hollow points, and two boxes for a niece who carries a 38. He wouldn't take any more.

Tell him to be careful and only buy from the larger retailers. There are a multitude of scams being run now. If they say they have everything in stock, it's fraud. Have you looked locally at Sportsmans and Gander?

Thank you for the info. I'll pass that on, except you forgot that Gander stopped selling anything gun related about a year ago. I've wondered how that's affected their bottom line? Them and Dick's both.
I'd have guessed that reloading components were like ammo. In stock for an hour, then gone.

I've paid three things with PayPal this week, but they were good places, eBay and Smoky Mountain Knife Works. I'm kind of a charter member with PayPal, 1996.

When flea bay said no components after the VT shooting I told them to stuff it and closed my account. I thought Paypal wasn't for guns or related items. That why if someone wants to use it beware.

PayPal and eBay won't do guns or ammo, primers would count as ammo. Other gun related items are okay. I've done PayPal for parts, holsters, magazines, mag loaders. I've seen eBay parts lots that were entire guns, minus a frame or receiver, with PayPal payment. It makes no sense, they've missed a pile of green. I'd guess they are afraid of being sued for handling payment of a "mass shooter" gun or ammo.

eBay bought PayPal several years ago. Either without the other would cut their business way down.

What do they say, Go Woke Go Broke? Firearms are evil. It is never the shooter that is to blame.

If they were trying to be woke, they wouldn't do anything related to guns, and maybe even knives too. I think it's the lawsuit worry. But if the shooter gets a scope and 50 mags that's okay. (?)
