Tony because you live out of the sink holes of Ma and NJ you can order your ammo on line. Of course order enough that justifies the shipping charges although many are giving free shipping in today's economony. Try natchez or cheaper then dirt.

Regarding the safety vest: You can go to a material, sewing store and buy the soft material (safety orange) and with the help of usually a neighborhood friend or female relative make your own. The over the head kind is my choice with draw strings at the bottom. The only reason I like the over the head model is I often hunt in my old military poncho (bad weather) so I can when sitting tuck gun underneath.
