That actually sounds like a good time. If only I could find some .22 ammo ...
If you live in a state that allows it....there are on-line meta-search engines that will help you to find .22 LR (and other calibers)....some with 'filters for '..in stock only..' and '..price..'. Check out sites like--Here is my secret to finding ammo in stock.
Reminds me of the gas shortages in the 70's, as soon as they got the price up where they wanted it, suddenly there was gas enough for everybody....Well here it is 2017 in November....and the 22 lr shortage is officially over.....
I see it everywhere although at higher prices ....the 1.50 a box ammo is now 3.00 a box ammo
