He has a friend who has a friend who knows where they can be had. He don't tell and I dare not ask!! =P
Well if this makes you happy, having this nice Ammo. deal for yourself and knowing that many of your fellow forum members are without even 50 rounds to shoot. Then enjoy shooting all the rounds.

I can assure you, if I was fortunate enough to have access to AMMOLESS training class to better train for self protection I would. That would save me A LOT of money. But until then I have lil choice but pay out the nose or not take classes that I feel will be good for mine and others safety.

It should be noted too that of all those rounds, not 1 single round was shot for the sake of just to shoot. Every last one has been in the training class.

As a new owner of a Walther PPX 9mm, it has met and exceeded my expectations. I found the PPX to be easy to use, easy to break down and clean, and very accurate. The grip, trigger, and sights are amazing. The magazine action is flawless. I was a bit concerned about the gun always being cocked. But, I simply leave the firing chamber empty. This is my first personal weapon and exactly what I needed for home defense.

not the best practice. it is made to have a round loaded in the chamber. your main safety practice is to keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.

I understand your concern but you need to practice and train more to be comfortable with the gun so it can be deployed the proper way if need arises. would you have a revolver and only load 5 of the 6 rounds with the hammer resting on an empty chamber? while it will work it is not the best practice.

I carry my faithful reproduction SAA revolver with only 5 rounds loaded, but I fully understand and agree with your point. Training and becoming familiar with your gun is a must. Keep making the videos by the way!
