This was introduced in the SHOT Show by CCI. Someday I'm staying in LV and "busting" into this show. It's a distributors "only" show that I have a few friends go to.

You should have looked me up.

More than likely I didn't even own a firearm at the time.

At 22 cents a round, I think I'll pass. I got Federal .223 yesterday for 32 cents at Walmart.

I saw that when I was there. Someone was trying to buy them out. They had the 20 round box on sale for $6 something. He thought he bought them out, but there was a whole nother case in the back of the cabinet. The lady who knows me asked if I wanted some of it, but I said I was good.

We moved there in 02 so we were there. I know I didn't have any rifles at that time, nor anything that shot 22lr. Only 9 mm and 380 ACP. We only started shooting 22lr when we couldn't get 9 mm or esp. 380. Then a year or two later the bottom dropped out with the 22's.

22 cents a round is tough to swallow, but I suspect that once production gets cranked up, cost will come down a bit.

Don't bet on it.

I would say the only way the price of that hummer is going to come down is if it replaces one of the other production items. Maybe the Velocitors??? Have to wait to see how good/bad it shoots.

Speaking of shooting, I didn't get to go this week. I wanted to do a range report too. I got my DropBox all set up again. Next week looks iffy too. We'll see.

I'd bet against accuracy, to light imo.

We're all guessing, at this point, of course. For now, I'm skeptical, too, about accuracy. Be interesting to see what develops.
