For the last several months, some types of ammo have been scarce, .223 in particular. But tonight I walked into my friendly neighborhood Cabela’s. No 9mm, no 45 ACP, no 38 Special. .380? Forget about it. There does seem to be a good bit of .223 back in stock, but the prices are just high. A friend called me this evening and said that his local Walmart didn’t even have any 30-30 ammo, just a smattering of .25 ACP.
But that isn’t what’s bothering me. Usually there is a ton of .22 LR. But tonight, only a few small shelves of Winchester Wildcat 22LR. No bulk Federal, no bulk Remington. Hardly any of .22 hollow points of any kind.
I’m glad I’ve been buying a couple boxes every time it went on sale. I’ve got enough to last a good while, but no where near what I wanted to have on hand.
But dang, you just expect there to always be .22LR.
Jeez, I know guns have been flying off the shelves, and the ranges have been packed, so it follows that ammo sales are going to be high…
I like to think I’m fairly on top of things, but no .22LR just leaves me wondering what the heck I’ve missed, and wondering how bad are things gonna get……
I really hope that one of these days we’ll get to look back and say “Boy we really overreacted didn’t we……” I really really do.
