22 LR ammo shortage

Postby strapped » Mon Oct 20, 2014 11:21 pm

I just bought a new 22 and found out there is a 22 LR ammo shortage after buy a brick at the store. They were out of 22LR!

I thought they were joking and they ended up selling me 333 shells loose for $20 just because I bought the gun from them

I'm not going out for big game this year but still wanted to do a little plinking and maybe get the wife out shooting and so I ended up buying a gun that's hard to get ammo for.

Unbelievable...

I looked it up on the web and the manufacturers say they are making more than they ever have but where is it all?

It never would have crossed my mind that a 22 shortage could ever exist. I'm still having difficulty believing it.

It has gotten better, a year ago you couldn't find any for sale.
The box stores have bricks here in Tejas.

The big boxes here have 235 and 222 boxed shells in good supply. The shop I bought my gun from is a little mom&pop outfit so they must not have the buying ability of the big boxes. Still, the fact that there can ever be a 22 shortage... wow.

I can't imagine how a shortage in the Republic of Texas would have gone over.

Whining, like anywhere else.
