Burp in .22 supply

It's now two weeks in a row that my Sportsman's Warehouse did not get any .22 ammo. The two weeks before these two, they only got about half what they had been. They are also getting less centerfire, but not a huge difference. My other big boxes are getting less lately, but still getting some, best as I know. I don't check them out as often.

I think it's too early for them to hold back stock for Christmas. I hope this is just a brief burp, not the beginning of another long dry spell........

I've been seeing a little bit more .22s lately than I have in years.

We have, too. Hope it lasts.

November 8th isn’t far off. Who knows what’s going to happen right after that. Could be another major ammo shortage.....again.
I hope we’re stocked up on ammo, spare magazines and misc. shooting supplies now!

I have been for the last 18 months. Lots of reloading supplies also.

No "shortage" around here. I don't count it anymore. I just weight it.

The situation has reversed. Now, my Sportsman's Warehouse got in some American Eagle bricks in pink boxes, Mini-Mag HP, Winchester Super-X (100), CCI SV, and Golden Bullet Buckets. Last Friday, and they still have some of all of them today, a week later.

I bought one of the pink bricks last week, but no more since. The pink is for a breast cancer awareness promotion. Federal and Sportsman's both make a donation from every box.

The new Sportsman's Warehouse by me always has Federal "Auto Match" in 325 round boxes for $ 23.00. That's not bad considering what some charge. That comes to a little more than .07 cents a round.

There never was a shortage of ammo just more buyers. The lack of available ammo was buyer driven not supply driven. I'm well stocked on ammo as is a lot of us hoarders so this time around if ammo becomes harder to find it won't be because of hoarders.

The key is to "hoard" BEFORE the prices go up, and the supply becomes non existent . Because if you wait, it triggers all the sheep to run to slaughter. I'll give you a perfect example... Hillary Clinton is going to be your next President as sure as I'm sitting here and typing this. I wish that were not the case, but I'm afraid it is.

Every concerned gun owner in this country is doing nothing in regards to buying anything firearm related. In spite of this looming political disaster that will be upon us in just a few weeks. There are sales on guns and related items virtually everywhere. The only shortage is customer related. Gun owners are acting with the same complacency they did before Obama won in 2008, and triggered the biggest gun buying frenzy in this nations history that lasted for months. All of a sudden the NRA will be swamped with a huge number of membership applications.

Right now shelves are full of 30 round magazines, .223 and 9 MM ammo, and even rimfire is coming back, and prices are dropping. Gun racks are full of AR-15's, AK-47, M1-A's, Mini 14's, name it. Many at sale prices. And cases are full of Hi-Cap semi auto pistols, along with plenty of extra magazines for all. I can all but guarantee you within 2 weeks after Clinton wins, there will be a mad rush to buy anything gun related as this whole stupid cycle starts all over again.

It is much the same in hurricane country every year. You would think people who live in these areas would have enough common sense to stock up BEFORE these disasters come into play. How difficult, or expensive is it to keep a supply of batteries and bottled water ready? And rotate them into fresh if you don't use them during the off season? Or purchase a generator and plywood when the Sun is shining, and no one wants them. Instead of waiting until a Cat-4 storm is 200 miles offshore.

Yet every time it happens the shelves are stripped bare, and gas lines are 6 blocks long. Most in this country are oblivious to what is happening around them, let alone going to happen in just a few weeks. The result is chaos every time something changes that might bring with it unfavorable results. People never learn, because for many their lives are going in 15 different directions at once.

I've got plenty, enough for two misadministrations and then some. The oldest ammo in my .22 stash is Welfare Wally's Federal Value Packs that were $10.97, two cents per round. I've never paid more than eight cents, and that was Mini-Mags. It's not just having a supply, but how much you save in the long run. My stash would now cost nearly three times what I paid for it.....

We're in good shape on 22 ammo. We've been buying a little here and a little there for a long time, now, and on a regular basis. No panic buying, just buying on a steady basis. The prospect of another 22 ammo shortage is really not an issue for me, anyway. The last panic drove me back into shooting airguns and for that I am ever grateful. My rimfire shooting is now the backup to my air gun shooting, not the other way around. If worse came to worse and I had to stop shooting rimfire, entirely, I would miss shooting our rimfires, of course, but the air guns would take care of my shooting addiction, nicely.

As for centerfire ammo, we're diversified enough as to cartridges we shoot, that we could probably always find something, though we are stocking up bit more on self-defense loads, just in case.

As for guns, well, our tastes are conservative and traditional, so we're fairly insulated from all the crazy political stuff and panic buying. The guns we love are the ones everyone passes by in the showcase to get to those evil black guns that Hillary hates. To give an example, our biggest local shop has 8 gun cases of semi auto handguns on display to only two of revolvers. Of the revolvers, never more than a few single actions on display. I can't blame the owner for this, because he's absolutely right when he tells me the demand for single actions is almost non-existent. If I want something, though, he will order it for me.

I believe you are dead on, billt. Looks like we'll have another leftist in the WH for the next four years and the panic will start a November ammo and firearms buying spree. I've been slowly buying a box here and a box there over the summer to add to my stockpile so that I will not need to panic buy anything. Next thing I have to do is call my broker and have him buy more S&W, Ruger, and Colt stock. Here we go again!!!
