Then Sandy Hook happens and I didn't jump on anything. I got real "lucky" though as weekend commitments and generally crappy weather on other weekends kept me off the range quite a bit, so that 3K rounds actually lasted me all season. I've been stopping by my local Dick's Sporting Goods every week for over a year now and have been unable to find any bulk .22 at all. There is apparently a group of retired asshats who sit at the counter every day and buy up everything that comes in. For over a year, nothing has lasted on the shelf longer than 2 to 3 hours and I've not been able to buy a single box.
However, in about 2 more weeks, my 2014 Camaro SS 1LE will be shipped to my dealership in Detroit and the family and I will be going out on a road trip to pick her up. Anyone know of any areas between NYC and Detroit where I might have a better chance of finding bulk .22?
Nope, same situation nation wide.
Good news is that at the last gun show I went to a couple if weeks ago there were tables full of .22 LR at silly prices and no one was buying it.
Hopefully supply will catch up soon.
