Old ammo

Recommended Posts

I was over to my cousin's, and he had some older boxes of 16g on the counter. One caught my eye, as it had the store sticker on it yet.  I believe Grants went out in the early 70's, so this box could be from the 60's to early 70's.  Not particularly old, just from a store I remember as a kid, and I like it price, lol.

Now you cant even buy the 25 primers to put on those shells for that price The 25 primers alone would cost at least $5   LOL

I bought this sleeve of CCI Magnum Primers in 2019 . Look at the price of these compared to todays price of 30-50 bucks for the same thing

That's really cool! I remember Grants!! Don't remember them selling ammo though???

They definitely did.  For the life of me, I'm trying to remember where our local store was located.  I think it was on rt 20 in East Greenbush, but not sure exactly where.  I'll have to ask my cousin or brother.

East greenbush on 9/20 if my memory right 

Were they on the south side where Hannaford is now?  I know where the True value is now used to be a grocery store. I think it was the A&P.

My Grants in Fairport had a grill and small restaurant.   They did a weekly spaghetti special that wasn't half bad.

JM Fields was another store like Grants that had a decent hunting department.  That was in Penfield in the Panorama Plaza.  You could buy decent rubber boots for winter camping and hunting for like $5.  They were decent and performed as well as mucks with wool socks.  Always pea green with orange soles with steel shank printed on side.

The Woolworth in plaza had a barrel of old military rifles cheap.  Like $10.   Springfields.   Those go for $1,000 now!

I remember gun shops and some department stores with barrels full of military rifles for cheap.  Who would have thought to grab a half dozen or more and stick em in a closet for 50 yrs.

That was down closer to Rensselaer.  There's a appliance store and a couple other shops in there.  

When I was around 25, I stopped by the Pistol Parlor to purchase a TC contender pistol hunter package.  I came from work and to be honest, didn't look like I had a nickel to spare. The owner was at his desk, and I politely waited a few minutes while looking through the glass at the pistol. He glanced at me and didn't say anything, so I said excuse me sir, I'm interested in this TC.  Without even looking up he said I should pick something out I could afford. I reached in my pocket and pulled out the $700 cash and he snapped to attention and said absolutely. I put my money in my pocket and as I walked out I said the lesson of the day is not to judge the book by it cover.

Your memory served you well.  Just found a article about the former Grants store where the Hannaford is now on 9&20.  It didn't turn into a K-mart like some because there was already a K-mart farther down 20 in East Greenbush.
