This is not meant to be another gun debate thread. Just currious why there is a shortage of all ammo including 22 bullets. I went to Accedemy sports yesterday and had to wait in line to buy one little box of 22 longs for target shooting. Thats all they would sell me. I reload everything but 22's. No one has even hinted at outlawing 22 ammo (that I've heard) so why the shortage? Any one have a clue? Thare is no bulk rate 22 ammo anywhere. The stuff was on the shelves by the truckload last year. Where'd it go?

Everyone is just buying em up in anticipation. It cost me $ 25 for a small box of 9mm that fills 2 and half mags.

It is absolutely crazy here. People are lining up before stores open on the days they know the truck came in the morning or the night before.

3 box limits if you can find it.

As I understand it, several government agencies are also stockpiling ammo as well.

The only thing you can find in abundance here right now is shotgun shells.

I noticed the abundance of shotgun shells. No government agency is stocking up on 22's unless they think we are going to be invaded by squirrels. It just doesent make any sense.

Try to find any on the internet. If you do, Please PM me. I want about 4,000 rounds for plinking. My wife and I can go through a couple hundred rounds in a day.

I have a small .25 I guess I'll start shooting that. .25 rounds have always been expensive for some strange reason. Must be why they are still on the shelves.

I picked up 3 boxes (525 count) 22LR 36-Grain at academy a few weeks back. The gun options and ammo in general are scarce now, but you can find a butt load of Arrows if you have a bow.
