Goddamn, I didn't know it was that bad.

I ended up just buying this:

https://www.natchezss.com/cci-blazer-brass-handgun-ammunition-9mm-luger-115-gr-fmj-1145-fps-50-ct.html

It was a hair cheaper and in boxes which I prefer for storage. Still nuts but I'd rather just pay it then troll reddit at 5 a.m.

Thanks for the heads up on Natchez!

Hmmm, those I talked to that opted for the shipping had no issue. Guess Home Depot's system is really random.

All store pickup at home depot.
Stools cancelled.
Benches cancelled.
Rolling cabinet cancelled.
Cabinet cancelled.
Second cabinet confirmed and picked up and on the way home now.

Apparently splitting into multiple orders means one price mistake might get through. If anyone still has a pickup order not cancelled good luck.

People who ordered and paid the $55 shipping on cabinets had their order shipped instead of cancelled though afaik. For a price mistake like this in the future it might be wiser to order 3 or 4 and eat the shipping split across each of them when it comes to Home Depot.

My cabinets say they will be ready for pickup tomorrow. I am guessing they would have canceled it by now if they were going to. I am really hoping I dont drive 2 hours to pick them up and they say lol canceled when I get there.

I opted for Curbside pickup; I figure they ask less questions that way. If you didn't order that way then you may be able to do that in the app once it gets there, or it may give you a button on the email telling you they're ready for pickup. They'll have a designated parking spot near the checkout counter.

Example Order Ready Email:

Once you press the button it autofills your order number and has you fill out your name, vehicle, parking spot number, checkbox that you're in the parking spot, and done.

I was looking for .22 and the cheapest is hovering around 25 cents per round. I was trying to research which manufacturers were decent since I'm planning on using it for maximum accuracy target practice and I came across this quote:

That must be a few years old because in 2019-early 2020 prices had actually dropped so that you could get decent bulk ammo for under 4cpr if you found a good sale.

If you want maximum accuracy then just buy the high end target ammo like Eley. Quality will be better and you aren't going to be paying much of a markup compared to regular ammo since panic buying hasn't hit that type of stuff too hard since it was already pretty expensive in comparison (20+cpr)

Was gonna say this. The current panic is nothing like the previous ones. People arenít just hoarding all the ammo causing supply to dry up, supply is low (COVID shutdowns) causing prices to increase and everything is out of stock as a consequence. Couple that with a Democrat president, house, and senate and everyone who ever thought of getting a gun is buying right now. All the cheap guns are gone, but if youíre into milsurp or higher end things you have a decent shot at finding it (at a higher price of course). Even mags and parts are somewhat easy to find.

Once production starts back up and these merchants start having more than one case of ammo for sale prices should stabilize, probably 10-15% 2 year ago averages.

I backordered a few thousand rounds of SK and Eley 22lr back in December. The SK came in within a few weeks. The Eley hollow points showed up last week. The Eley Contact is still awaiting fulfillment. Kinda makes me think I should go ahead and order more, because I'm sure the lead times are even longer now.

The big variable, of course, is actually being able to make it to the range

Alright, here's a funny price mistake. A silly price mistake. Do you need 6 range hoods w/ 600 CFM for your 6 kitchens? That have 27" touch smart screens that are probably running android and are Netflix compatible? Do I have the price mistake for you!
Edit: Wait, hold on hold on... let me re-market these: Do you need 6x 600CFM RELOADING hoods?

Your total will come out to $588 + Tax, bring it down to $98 per hood. Free home delivery (maybe store pickup? Kind of a specialty thing). Probably will get cancelled. If you have a Home Depot card I think you have 1 year to return them.

I got in a bit late on this and spent like $130 per hood but they're here! It took almost six months with two cancelled deliveries and I only got 4 of the 6 I ordered but it looks like I found (another) summer project to do. It'll be worth it to finally have a vent hood in time for summer cooking. The 27" touchscreen and dual cameras are cool too I guess.

Nice! Love it when a price mistake works out.

I ended up cancelling mine since I talked to some contractors friends I knew and I couldn't move the extras quickly; if I lived in town I'd be more willing to do the craigslist/offerup shuffle on multiple units. My coworker though did indeed receive all 6 units and sold the other 5 he didn't need over a few months, so he came out ahead with a small profit of about ~$300 + a free unit.

Hopefully you can either sell or find a use for the others, and I hope this fancy hood works out for your kitchen .

I am not paid a commission, I am paid by the hour, and I'm either the last jenga block holding up a whole heap of poo poo or I've just not pushed hard enough to get fired ( yet ).

If I'm doing end of day reductions on meat and I see a customer picking up something I know I'm about to reduce, I will stop them, reduce it the standard 40%, and hand it back. Unless they're annoying.

Note: like a spiteful crow, a retail employee will remember the face of someone who hosed them over and will never, ever do them a favor ever again. I can't remember the names of people I've worked with every day for four years, but I remember That Guy Who Is An rear end in a top hat.
