    .22's in stock more regular at Wally-World to the point they've removed the limits on how many ya can buy. but I sure wish I'd bought another box or two of the magnums when they had them as I haven't seen them back since that one time. plenty of 17hmr's if ya like such things.

    Heck I'm still glad I don't have the guy at the ammo counter the joke of the day "do you have any 22lr in stock" that was the norm for a couple years. And by all means stock up. If I continue to shoot as much as I've been doing the past couple years, then I have perhaps two more years of powder in metal cans left. Then it's all what I've been buying since the manufacturers switched to plastic. Unfortunately I was extremely low on 22lr when the panic hit from plinking with the kids. We also switched over to pellet guns for backyard plinking, but have been dusting off the 22's since last spring.

    Forgive me , I was just a pup then and thought differently . Besides that there was a slight cash flow problem for me . On the good side I think I was the only one in my family that liked guns

    Got a case of Federal auto-match for a hundred ninety bucks delivered recently . That's the first case I've bought since mid 08 .

    The local Walmart last week had Remington Golden Bullet 100-packs and CCI std. velocity 50-rd boxes in stock. The first time I've seen (doesn't mean they never had any) any .22 LR on the shelf since we moved here 3 yrs. and 10 mos. ago. A couple of days later the HV Remington was gone but they still seemed to have plenty of CCI SV @ 3.47/box.

    I bought some Aguila 22's at Cabelas the other day. High priced from the old days, $35. a brick. I have Federals , Winchester, CCI and Remington in my cabinet. I didn't have anything my 10/22 liked. The Aguila was great. I hate to pay the price but I'm going to lay a couple more bricks up .
    My Browning Tbolt likes white box Federal and Winchester power points. The rest shoots well in my Mk ll Ruger. I'm well pretty fixed on 22's now. Probably will outlast me.

    If I happen to find some CCI Blazer (the only 22lr that works in all my guns) for @ 5 cents/rd, I'll buy some. Other than that, I've pretty much given up on 22lr as a caliber. I'd honestly rather shoot cast 9mm and 40 S&W out of a PCC.

    For me it's still cheaper to buy online and even with shipping (if present) it's still cheaper than local. Other thing I've noticed is that quality seems to be up. This month I've went through about 4x525 boxes of Federal bulk with mix of pistol and rifle (semi) - not a single hiccup.

    I just need a 9mm PCC. Or a .357 lever gun.

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

    I've been heavily considering a Glock 22 with a Mech Tech upper. You might really like a Glock 20 with one?

    I've got a NIB Gen 3 Glock 20. I'm actually sitting on it hoping that the Springfield 10mm XD pistol isn't vaporware. I'd much rather have an XD in 10mm.

    Picked up a box of Win 555 bulk @ Walmart yesterday. They had more on the shelf than they've had since the drought. Came to 30 and change per box. Also got some Fed Target in 40 gr. (last week) that was less than 30/bx of 325. I'm slowly building a stock supply and have 5 different brands/kind. I was asked for my drivers license when I bought the Fed Target, but not when I picked up the Win 555 bx.; I asked why and the clerk said it was store policy.

    likely they consider the target as pistol ammo or some such.

    they're havin' a regular enough supply at the local Wally-World that they've removed the limits on it. now if they'd just get more 22mag in stock.

    before the next panic I'm'a be stocked up enough to keep the next two generations of Nester's in plinkin' ammo.
