    I decided to take an ammo inventory today, just to confirm what I had. As I was wrapping things up, I came across an ammo can with 4 bricks of 22LR I had completely forgotten about. So happy right now.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: It's was like putting on an old jacket and finding $20 in the pocket.

    Well, that's better than my best find. I was walking through a casino a few years ago and found a C note laying on the floor.

    More like finding $128 at todays prices. Best price I found at the Rickreall guns show today was $32 a brick.

    $60 a brick is crazy. Lots of people selling for $40 a brick but didn't see a lot of action at those tables. The central ammo tables were buzzing and that is where the best prices were. Just had to be patient to be served. Keith's had more pistols than I've seen in months and prices were at normal levels. Cheaper than local guns stores before the madness hit. I saw assorted primers but they still carried a premium price and were few and far between. Brass was selling at normal levels for .223/5.56 and even saw 9mm going for 4 cents each. I glanced at lots of AR rifles but didn't bother checking prices.

    Know the feeling. I was cleaning up a bit this week and found a can I thought was empty. Well it was full of .22 bricks. Always a good deal.

    It's always good to find extra ammo. My lucky day was Thursday when I bought a made in Belgium Browning Semi-Auto .22LR take-down rifle from 1964.

    I too, came up with a couple bricks yesterday... but I suspect it was from all the chili and meatloaf I devoured the day before. ;) (I don't care who you are, that's funny right thar!)

    That Rickreall show was nuts yesterday, shoulder to shoulder crowd. If .22 ammo is selling that high, I should dig out a few bricks from my stash and offer them up for sale. Sounds like they would go quick for under $30 a brick (or would I be gouging?)

    I just moved and am selling our old house. It closes at the end of the month and I was there yesterday finishing up a couple things. For some reason I glanced in a garage cabinet I had cleaned out and checked more than once already. As I was shutting the door I barely noticed something in a shadow. I pulled out an ammo can: 500 rounds of '50s Russian 7.62x39 steel core surplus I forgot I had.

    I moved some stuff in my safe and found 2 cases of 500 rds each of .223 a few weeks ago. Had forgotten all about them and had ordered and received another 1,000 rds some months before that.
