Why is there such a shortage of 22 LR ammo right now? I just wanted to shoot a few targets and can't find any here in Northeast

          Upsetting Update - Did some local research to find out why Bass Pro, Wal-Mart, Dicks, didn't have ammo...the answers were aggrivating to say the least. What's happening is we're all willing to pay too much for AMMO. When I asked folks at the local retail shops what happens when ammo arrives, they said "local Gun Shop owners and their employees are standing in line"...yes, your friendly local Gun Shop Owners. When I asked one of these owners, he said "yep, I just spent 250,000 dollars on retail ammo and am reselling it online and at the store".... So, as long as we are willing to pay 30.00 a box for 22lr, these folks will be first in line to clean off the retail shelfs so they can resell it to you. SPREAD THE WORD - DON'T PAY THESE PRICES, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOUR LOCAL GUN SHOPS ARE THE ONES STICKING IT TO YA...

            Every arcane little branch of government that has an armed force buys millions of rounds of it for "practice." Yes, even .22lr. Most of it probably sits in warehouses. Engineered scarcity to drive up prices. We fall for it and buy everything that shows up driving up the price further.

              My local gun store owner and shooting expert (Austin, TX) says that there is fear of an excise tax on ammo soon. That sounds rational, but to me unlikely.

              Then there are the "enthusiasts" who are preparing for Armageddon. I spoke with one while at the gun store and he informed me that when the end times come he plans to get out of town with as many rounds as he can, to last for years foraging in the wild with his family. That's why he has stockpiled 10,000 rounds of 22 ammo. I wish him luck; think I would rather have a shotgun.

                I'm switching to my pellet rifle for practice rounds until the panic buying is over.

                  Is in short supply because, well theres' several reasons.[1] Lots of men and women are buying handguns and A R 15 that are 22.,,women for protection, and men for target practice and protection, every time walmart gets a case in , its gone in 60 seconds .{2} people are hoarding it up and trying to double and triple there money on it ,, people need to stop paying outrageous prices for it and the price will go down,and the stock will build up .[3] the U S A government is turning more and more into a Mafia, dictatorship gov'and one day there may be a revolt and we may need our guns and ammo to protect ourselves and our families from the actual crooked ass lawmakers themselves , when they send the army to take away your guns and ammo.[4]There is more and more lawlessness in this country since we take in all scumm from all over the world , allow murderers ,thieves, rapist , drug dealers to go free, BILL B.
