No , I bought thousands of rounds right from the local gun shop. The trick is finding a dealer that doesn't mind waiting to get paid. The Institution I worked at wasn't to bad but some state institutions made the dealers wait 5 or 6 months to get paid.
Bought the first generation Kimber Stainless LE Target for $680. It out shoots my Les Baer and Wilson Combat Special ,HANDS DOWN ! Racking the slide feels like it is riding on a greased piston, no movement and tight lockup. Love that gun.
