Default Where did all the ammo go?

I'm trying to buy a case of Federal Champion bulk .22, but everywhere is sold out, even online. What the hell? My M&P22 demands food.

12/21 is fast approaching. There are a lot of tin-foil-hat-wearing gun owners

EVERYONE and their mother had .22LR on sale for BF, hell I don't even shoot a ton of .22 but purchased 2 cases (20 boxes) because it was so cheap.

I just shot up some of my left over ammo I got from my father that had $9.99 price tags on the 500rd bricks. Seeing as those are now double the price (for the cheap bulk $21/$22) I was more than happy to buy at $17 and stock up.

The scary Kenyan Muslim Socialist is coming for my stuff so I'm going to buy everything I can so he will hurt his back carrying it away. All of the .22 you are looking for is buried in the woods behind my house.
Left, not "liberal", not what gets called "left" in American politics, Actually Left, like the government shouldn't be set up to favor certain groups, radically and fanatically left, like the ideas in the American Constitution (except that crap about 3/5ths of a person).

Actually I only started collecting Milsurps 3 years ago. I think I might own about 24...They're cheaper than guns that will most likely never get the opportunity to kill somebody...

Tis better to have Trolled & lost, Than to never have Trolled, at all.

Ur too late in the game. Should never let ur stock go dry. Should have gotten more before the hording. One of my buddy did the same as u did. He doesnt have a stash at all. He shoots wut he buys, usually like 200rds or so. Now he aint got jack ammo to go plink. Just 40rds in the mags. Hes gonna be dead if the zombies come knockin lol

Keep an eye on Dunn's. They usually have Federal Champion .22 in stock about once a month. Only $170/case.

No ****. It looks like the guy who makes .44 special for all the ammo companies is on Christmas break too! Wouldn't have been stocked up for a Super BH that hasn't been functioning properly for 10 years, that I just got fixed.

Want to start reloading (including .44), but the brass is just as scarce.

Think I'll start looking for that hen's tooth.

As for the OP, .22 is one of those calibers that you should always have in stock. Whenever I go out and see it on the shelf or on sale online, I always buy some. I've seen some on slickdeals so you just need to be patient and definitely sign up for the notifications.

Good Luck!
