The .22 Shortage may be over here

Went in Sportsman's Warehouse this morning and saw 12 Federal Value Packs, the blue box with 525 rounds. Not quite the tables full I used to see, but it's a start. The first Value Packs I've seen in two years. Also had a dozen or so 400 round bricks of American Eagle HP. I've only seen those twice in the past year.

Either was $29.99. I didn't buy, because I've got plenty of both. I've got Value Packs that were $11. It's just nice to see them on a shelf again.

They had the usual 500 rounds of Thunderbolt for $38.99. If they can keep the Federal stocked, the Thunderbolts will have an inch of dust on top.

There's at least 100k rounds of .22 at Cabela's every time I go. The last 4-5 trips they've had a whole shelf of Rem 1400 rd buckets, and no one is touching them.

Looks like 303 stopped buying and now the market is flooded.

I've shot off 5 rounds of my supply so far this year. Took me 2 to kill one woodchuck. The other 3 were one shot each.

Doing pretty good on availability, up here in the sticks, too. Good news, since we've been doing a lot of shooting, this summer.

I shoot about 900-1000 a month, but I've never had a problem maintaining a supply. Gander Mountain kept me going through the worst of it. RIP Gander.

Looks like Terry's gonna have a vacant porch several months per year. Maybe you two can come up with some sort of an agreement. Ya know....you go to his place when he's gone and keep the vermin in control...or keep the grass mowed, one blade at a time. Let me know if he's in agreement....I'll bring the beer.

He can't stay gone too long. We'll probably need him to post bail, time we get through shootin, and drinkin, and havin blonde moments and such.

We'll be in FL 5 months, put it in the rental pool for 4-5 months and who know the other 2-3 months. The nice thing about it is if we want to head down for a couple weeks then get in the car and go. The people there say the busy season is in the summer and they are pretty well booked. We don't plan to spend much time in FL in the summer so it fits our schedule perfectly for renting. I guess those inland come down to the coast in the summertime as it's cooler there, has a nice beach across the road plus a pool in the park. We'll see how it goes. No need to worry about the lawn that is all part of our lease with RVC. Looks like all you people would have to do is sit by the pool and drink beer. Pretty tough job but I am confident you could all handle it.

Best of luck to you, Terry. I know a lot of folks, up here, who head down to Florida in the winter. Not this gal, though. I need my north country winters. That Florida heat is too much for me.
