So maybe there is ammo to buy afterall.
Smart. Just picked up an old Stevens 22 bolt action with a tubular magazine. Right on the barrel it lists .22 short, long or long rifle. If the you can't bring the buffet to the party, then take the party to the buffet....22 shorts here I come.

Muliemaster ask the name of your gun shop? We have some gun builders who refuse to tell where thier shops are? My question to you fellows is if you are legal why hide it. If you are illegal any of you, don't advertise on gun forums. We don't need the problems. Yes when you post you get PM from members.

I stocked up BEFORE the shortage started when there was lots of ammo available. I have 8k-10k on hand plus about 4k of 17HM2 for my wife's rifle. I have 6 22's to feed. We like to shoot off hand at spinners at 30 yards and it eats up some ammo. I have single fed shorts lots of times even in my 10-22.

I am retired. I have closed shop many a year ago. The reason I said pass, is that the now x member (banned) had a huge chip on his shoulder, and frankly, he was not someone I wanted to get chummy with.

If I were doing a gun business again, I would love to distribute an electronic business card to one and all. Being retired, I have nothing for sale. Used to be a pawnbroker, and did firearms loans.

That guys final posts, he went ballistic against mods here. If they ever reinstate him, I would be surprised. His attitude in that melt down thread, is why I said pass.

I have several guns that will shoot 22 shorts. Here's a pic of my favorite "high powered" NAA mini revolver. When you can't carry a big one, this one will do. Effective combat range of this little monster is about 8 feet. Beyond that and you better think about throwing rocks.

I love shooting .22 shorts out of my Winchester model 62. It's the closest you'll ever get to shooting a BB gun. For paper targets they're perfect. I always try to pick them up, but usually can't find them and am forced to use .22LR.

Most shooters are brought to the idea of firearms via the ubiquitous .22 Long Rifle cartridge. If we have advanced to "bigger and better things," we occasionally have a tendency to regard the lowly.22 as being a kid's gun, just a toy. Nothing could be more incorrect. For pure versatility and economy, the.22 Long Rifle is unmatched.

Rifle scopes are available in stunning variety today. Some are simple and basic while others look like a PhD would be required to operate them. As you would expect the prices will also vary from well under $100 to several thousands of dollars. Complexity and cost justifiably have a wide range because shooters, their guns, and their targets, whether paper or game, also cover a very wide range. Some .22 rifles may only be used for squirrels or rabbits at 50 yards or less. At the other end of the scale are hunters seeking large game such as elk in conditions that may demand shots at well over 300 yards.
