Has anyone ordered ammo online? Experiences? Good sites to check out?

Buying ammo online is tough in IL because a lot of dealers dont like dealing with a FOID card, but it can be done.

ABLE AMMO is good.

Check out local gun shops for good deals.  Dicks Sporting Goods doesnt price gouge as much as other big chains.  

Wal Mart is the best.

I'm actually thinking about getting a gun license over here and buying a shotgun/rifle for down the trai... "hunting"

That is all.

Are you looking for mainstream calibers? Military surplus ammo? Rifle? Handgun?

I've ordered a bunch of surplus ammo from http://www.wideners.com and everything went great.  Other popular options:
http://www.ammunitiontogo.com/
http://www.classicarms.us/ammunition.htm

Of course you could always go to http://www.cabelas.com/ and similar on-line stores.

Find a forum dealing with the specific gun/ammo you need and they'll most likely have an ammunition section with everything you need to know.

Mainstream handgun calibers.  I haven't bought a gun yet but it's either going to be a .40 or a 9mm depending on which one is more locally available.  So far .40 seems to be my best bet.

For handgun ammo I'd try out Wal-Mart like Neckbeard recommended.  That's where I bought most of my .40 (Blazer Brass FMJ for target ammo).  Cheapest place I found but they don't always have it in stock, so when they do buy the most you can.

Yeah I've checked two of the local Wal-Marts and although they don't have much, they have more .40 available than 9mm.  Same with Gander Mountain but I wasn't too impressed with their prices.

Gander MTN price gouges.

You can find Blazer Brass and Wolf and UMC at walmart, 9mm and .40, for less than $9 per 50 which is good for these days.

You should shoot the gun before you buy it.

9mm is a great round and fun to shoot, .40 is snappy and makes double taps real hard.

Try a polymer gun and a metal gun.

I suggest getting a .22 pistol at first because it is really fun and cheap.  

Then I would get a .45, 10mm, .357 sig, .357 revolver (best Bet/buy ever).

9mm and .40 get boring and you always want more power.  A revolver in .38/.357 is the best ever.

FINALLY picked up a 1911 stainless casting. Most of the holes are finished, its already ground to size. This investment casting is NICE! Minor filing and its coming together. I fit the trigger & the magazine last night. I need to bore out one hole for the mag release and that will drop in.

From the looks of it I need to cut the slides, open up the main spring housing and cut the grooves for that, tap the grip bushing holes (od size and EXPENSIVE tap from Midway/Brownells, may order a couple custom coated taps for this), cut the tangs for a beaver tail grip safety, drill the ejector location holes, the holes for the plunger tube and that's about it!

I do plan on shooting a few at one of the ranges here. I won't get a revolver though.  I've shot my fair share of them and they've just never appealed to me for some reason. 9mm and .40 were also the most common (still didn't have much of either) and I saw one box of .45 and only a few of .38 and .357.

I don't plan on this being my only purchase.  Whatever I decide to get now, my next will definitely be a 1911.

One gun or caliber of ammo won't satisfy every need.  Of course that is why most gun owners have multiple weapons.  Right tool for the job and all.
