    I can remember when gas was 24.9cents and premium was 34.9 cents (1970) but those days are long gone. I remember buying .22lr for .50 cents a box of hundred and yes those days are long gone also. What will the new price level out to be that remains to be seen. I am thinking maybe we will see .22lr for $15-20 a brick one day but then I am not sure as the cost of manufacture, shipping, storing, handling, selling just keep going up and so will the product.

    Worked at a Two Guys department store in the 70's. My boss and another associate handed me a large heavy box on my birthday -- a case of CCI .22's. 5,000 rounds in 100 round plastic boxes. I moved to Florida soon after (1974), bought my first handgun, a Ruger Super Single Six .22/.22 mag for $98 at Bill Jackson's on 4th Street St. Petersburg, and that ammo lasted a looong while . I still have and love that revolver...

    Imagine if all the guys with the tricked out .22's went to single shots and we all traded out MkII's in for single six's ....probably wouldn't have been such a run on the ammo heh

    You may have a point there. I was at the rifle range yesterday getting a new rifle sighted in. On the next bench was a man with a Ruger 10-22(tricked out of course).
    During the time I was there, he never fired less than 5 shots at what I would consider to be a rapid fire pace and often ran out the magazine. He went through a minimum of 250 rounds while I was there.
    He said he was getting ready for a silhouette shoot.

    Guess he wasn't at the range I belong to, no fast dumping of a mag. allowed.

    Shots are to be 5 seconds apart.

    No idea why, but they will ask for your card if caught.

    May well be, but it is one of the largest clubs in southern Michigan!

    Has a large Trap range, archery, has sanctioned Benchrest matches both Smallbore and High power, active Blackpowder matches, covered pistol range for 50 shooters, actively supports youth training.

    If this is FUDDS, so be it.

    One thing is missing out on is Air Gun matches.

    I want a .22 Hornet so bad I can taste it. I just download my .223 bolt action for now.

    My dream gun would be a nice single shot .22 Hornet.

    Currently casting for .223, .308, .30-06, .30-40 Krag, 9mm, .38/.357, 10mm, 44 Mag and 45 ACP.

    I like strange looking boolits!
