    I just left there. There was still quite a bit of 22lr and powder but it was going fairly fast. I had a box of 22lr and a box of large pistol primers and then I saw the line to pay. Put it back and decided I can wait..... Lot's of people there but they had lots of inventory.

    Yeah that's what I was afraid of all those people that's why I decided not to go I'll wait for it to calm down and hopefully the supply will somewhat still be there

    I rolled by around 8am thinking about maybe getting a pound of powder this morning since they were supposed to be getting some stuff I could use...I got to see the shipping manifest last week while I was in the store.

    Saw the line wrap around the store and double up in the parking lot, went home and made pancakes.

    I stopped by later (11am) and all the .223 they had, and they had a LOT of it before, was gone. Didn't even ask about the powder since it was a 45 minute wait to checkout.

    Went tonight at 8:00. Still had powder, primers, 10+ 9mm Shields, 223 and 556 by the case, and I scored a 525pack of Remington Gold 22LR for $24 for a buddy at work.

    Yea, I was back in this afternoon, and there was more powder out, ammo was restocked, etc. Guess it was just a run on the stock that I saw.

    Glad to have powder on a shelf for once though. I can finally put some 9mm together for my SBR

    I see they gutted the Vancouver store so you Oregonians could have plenty of everything. Bare ammo shelves and a bleak gun wall. Went in there today thinking about a poly 45acp. There were four 45acp's on the wall, FOUR. And we can't even get a simple 'thank you' from you ingrates.

    I didn't go, but thank you PuddleMonkey..... We Oregonians appreciate your sacrifice!

    I was wondering if Sportsman's may have been keeping 22lr off the shelves of all the stores for a month or two so they could supply a MASS amount for the opening. Makes sense to me....Getting 22lr makes people happy! Happy people WANT to spend money!

    I dropped in a little after 9 and there was a ton of 22lr, but a line to pay snaking through the store, a friend who was in line said it took her about 1/2 hour, and the line was over twice as long as it was when she got in. I decided it wasn't worth the wait so I left. Stopped by again around 12:30 and there was still quite a bit of 22lr, and no lines. I bought a box and so did my wife, so we're set for 22lr for a while.

    I was there at 11am, Only .22 was 8.00/100 and no lines, Hardly any people shopping. Looked pretty picked over to me.

    Stopped by today around 12:30. No .22lr. No .22 mag. Bought 2 boxes of .17HMR Hornady. And a dry box for $11.99 although it was smaller than the "standard" ammo can size. Did find some .22 mag at a local store for $14.99/box. Bought two boxes from them as well. No .22lr spotted today anywhere.
