I have wondered the same; i think it has to do with the lack of firearms chambered in .22WMR with higher-capacity magazines (other than that PMR pistol thing).

22 Magnum 40 Grain JHP BVAC - 500 Rounds - Surplus Ammo
BVAC 500rounds

Solid Point : Ammunition To Go These guys have some 250's & 500's, but no real "steals".

If they chambered a WASR in .22mag, i'd bet we would see bulkier bulk packs and better deals.

So I respond to an ad on craigslist about a 3000GT. He says this thing is immaculate & I take his word for it. I show up to find the timing belt is laying to the side, one cam won't turn, it's covered in tree sap, & there are cigarette ashes dumped on the console. This guy gets upset because I don't want to tow the pos home. If you're gonna sell something that you ragged out at least make it look like you maintained it.

I got the ugliest Rossi copy of a Winchester pump .22mag (model 62, i bleve) that can be imagined. I still can't decide whether to try to repair/de-ugly it, completely disassemble and sink it in a creek, or to sell it. I don't think i could sell something this ugly without catching some bad kharma. I mean, this thing is horrific: unmatching possibly home-made forestock, extremely faded bluing all over (least it matches), and severe scuffage from some idiot mounting a scope in a seriously moronic way (think dremel). I think i may just fill in the scuffage with some solder or something & spray-paint the ugly lil thing & use it for a take-downable, bugoutbag-only, critter getter.

I was surprised at the limited .22mag selection at the local Wallyworld, myself.

Got my Dad a pair of overalls (bibs) for his birthday supper on Sunday. The only non-insulated overalls in "town" were some Carhart's at a local building supply place. I tried them on to see if they were close; Dad is now a bit shorter and wider than me (about 2" each way). I am gonna have to order me some of these; i haven't had overalls in a while and miss the comfort. Dad liked them quite a bit.

Growing up, i mostly saw Dad in suits (busy PA), so overalls are almost a novelty for him.

Sorry if this has already been covered, but I'm not gonna read this entire thread lookin'!
Anyways, I've always wondered: why do all mouthwash, cleansers, etc. only kill 99.9% of bacteria and/or viruses? Is this like job security or something?

What about the 0.1% they don't kill? Will that kill me?

Well, if you apply the "that which doesn't kill me, makes me stronger"principle, then this bacteria its now stronger and pissed off

Maybe it'll start gaining popularity like the .410 did when the Judge came out. I figure filling the same size box with mags & charging the same price would make sense. You'd have fewer rounds of course but twice the über factor
