Default Got some .22 ammo finally!

Traded a 50 round box of 9mm NATO rounds for a 550 box of .22lr. Score I would say.

I remember around Thanksgiving the local far supply store had the Win. 333 ct. boxes for $9.99. I bought ONE. If I had only known!

ouch! gotta do what you gotta do, i reckon! i paid $18 for 325 automatch today. limit 1 box though....and they has plenty...i was tempted to go pick up some bums and get them to buy 22 for me in exchange for happy meals..

found a good store that refuses to price gouge....its a nice thing.

keep on keeping on....i feel you...it has been TOUGH to get 22....

That's insane. I haven't seen much .22 lately but when I do it's almost at the pre panic prices. I cant conceive of paying 60 bucks for that small of an amount.

I wouldn't feel right about shopping at a place that felt it was okay to gouge customers that much. Then again I'm lucky enough to have a place that hasn't raised their prices hardly at all this whole time.

EVERY gun / pawn shop is gouging where I live. And walmart? Youre lucky if you can find a 50rd box of thunderbolts

That's a bummer. I've noticed a lot of people on here have had the same problem. I've been lucky enough that if I'm patient I can find what I need at normal prices. But it takes a lot of patience.

I feel for you and everyone else who have to deal with scumbags. The fundamental problem I have with Gun stores gouging is that as shooters and gun owners I feel like we're supposed to stick together. Especially with how things are now. And these stores turn around and bend people over a log. I understand they have a business to run, but come on...

And I've never had respect for pawn shops so not surprised. Lol.

they did it for awhile around here. then i think they noticed people were willing to wait it out....i overpaid for ammo ONCE in this crisis....i ain't doing it again.

since....i have collected hundreds of rounds at decent prices...but it took a LONG time....no shooting, just picking up bits of ammo here & there...

just stop overpaying now....convince everyone else you know to stop...its the only way the prices get better. accept your guns may have to sit awhile.
