This seem completely unpresidented, I have not seen ANY 22. on the Shelves this year.:huh:
Scalpers have been buying everything that hits the shelves. Offering it for resale at $50-$100 per brick at shows and online.
Since now I dont shoot much lately I should sell some of my 22 bricks
June 7th 2014 was the date decided on at the last "they" meeting i went too.
Damn, I dont think I was suppose to share that!
Sucks. My 14 and 12½ year olds want to shoot.
If there's buyers, there's gonna be sellers. I wonder if there's always been this much speculation in ammo during the last couple scares as I wasn't aware at those times.
The shortage will last until November 2016, the day after a conservative is elected as president.
Until people have no more $$$ to buy what is on the shelf or until they determine that they have "enough" stock piled.
I've recently seen Eley Target on Gunbroker going for about standard Midway prices. This is a fairly spendy ammo at $6 a box, but it is just as spendy regardless of who's president. It is the really cheap stuff that is getting jacked up in price.
I'm not sure I believe the problem is speculators. I think people are shooting a lot more. You can't have an article in your face every day about guns and not get the urge to go plinking. People have been breaking out the closet queens.
Until people quit paying 3X what they should in the classifieds section. Once people realize they can't sell a $18 brick for $50 they will quit buying every last brick they see.
JUST QUICK PAYING CLASSIFIED SECTION PRICES and the prices will come down. Until then who knows???
I agree. I have spent lots of time shooting and modding my 870 since all this bubblegum started. Bird shot is everywhere still, clays are cheap and tactical reloads, slug change overs and skeet shooting are a blast.
Not too sure about that. Pretty much everyone I meet says that don't really want to go shoot up their supplies of ammo because they don't know if they will be able to replenish it. Majority of people I have talked to all say they are not shooting as much. I know I am shooting less, I want to conserve the reloading components I have because I don't know when I will be able to get more.
That's how I feel. I have not shot much because I can't replace it if I shoot it up.
find out when your favorite store gets their shipment, get there when the store opens, wait in line with everyone else, mabye by the time you get to the counter there might be some left. I just waited for almost 2 hours and got a few boxes for a very reasonable price. The line was ridiculous though, glad i got there when i did.
Now when I go to the local range it is easy to get a lane. The wife and I go and spend about 45 minutes aiming at targets and yelling POW! POW! In the black every time!
It is a time to sell. 2 weeks ago, on Northwestfirearms, I was getting $5 per 50 .22 rounds (one box). At the same time, I put an ad in Craigslist for $10 per 50 rounds. Sold every box.
I didn't have the nerve to offer it here for $10 a box...... people here get so pissy.
Don't buy ammo right now. Sell! Sell! Sell, Mortimer!
Too bad there isn't a "Dislike" feature.
Get a bolt-action .22lr - makes your supply last longer.
It'll last as long as it lasts!!
Shortage ? :dunno: You weren't prepared......... :wave:
