Default When will this .22 ammo shortage BS end?

When will .22 ammo be readily and easily available again?

I wouldn't really expect to see any good supplies on the dealers shelves until next summer at the earliest.

It's starting to become available but the price won't come down with the talk of a tax on ammo.

My local walmart get's in .22lr every week or so, you have to call on "ammo" days to see if that particular day got in a shipment. Few weeks ago, they had .22lr ammo on the shelves until around 4pm before it got cleaned out. I haven't bought .22lr since last oct, got enough to last till this hysteria blows over then I'm buying a couple cases.

I understand what you're implying, but the stores should have 2000 boxes on hand. It should be on an unending supply to us Americans.
Sorry, but I don't think Obama has that much to do with it. He facades for popularity, but knows he can't stop America's need for firearms.

i went to cabelas this weekend and some guy returned 4-100 round boxes. They were set back behind the counter for sell again. 3 of the boxes sold as fast as they hit the counter the other box lasted a few more minutes. I was going to buy it when some rude ******* jumped in front of me asking for it. Then after everyone was clear from the area the guy behind the counter ask me if I still wanted some 22 rounds. I said yes. He walked to the back room behind the gun counter and brought out 3-1000 round boxes due to the fact there were three of us in my party. My daughter isn't 18 years of age yet so they took one box back. When we went through the check out line they required me to do two different transactions. It made me wonder how much 22 rounds are back there. This whole thing on the 22 shortage is stupid if you ask me. It does give me a good reason to buy a 17 hmr though.

I would hope that it becomes available around Christmas time. People aren't shooting as much and need their disposable income for presents...?? I dunno. just a thought.
