Until then here's a great idea that I did to keep shooting. Pick up a good quality 22 air rifle and stock up on some pellets and just have a good time putting 22 size holes in targets for cheap.
I did the same thing. I grabbed a GAMMO 177 rifle that had the same stock measurements as my 30-06. I always try to mimic the stocks on large bore rifles when I set up my 22lr and air rifles

Default Definition of a Good Neighbor.....

..... a guy that calls you when he's at Academy Sports, and asks if you need any .223 American Eagle 55gr, that they have on the Shelf! 3 Boxes later, and I'm a Happy Camper!

Yeah..... this Ammo thing is the craziest I've seen in 50 years.

Cheers!

Well when I went to my local gun store looking for some 22 ammo I found it but didn't get any because it was 23.50 for 50 rounds I wanted it but thought it was to steep

Second week of January a friend at work told me of a honey hole he had found for .22. It was at a hardware store called Atwood's. It is a pretty common hardware store here in Oklahoma. They didn't have it on the shelves. What they did was keep a 50 count box of each type that they had in the back on the shelf in the customer service booth. I went in and asked if they had any bricks of it in the back, the lady called on the radio/walkie, and some guy in the back room said he had over 50 bricks of the one particular brand I was asking about so I said I would take 5. They were only $19.96 per 500 count brick. 3 for me and 2 for my brother. When the guy walked up I asked him how many they had in the back between all the brands and he said well over 100 bricks. Sent another friend up there the following week and they were all gone...

Good news for me was when I brought my 3 bricks home I decided to go thru my shooting stuff to see how many AR mags I could take to the gun show to sell and I found another 2500+ rounds that I forgot that I had. So with 4000+ rounds I'm not too worried about taking my 3 sons plinking, but I'll have to limit them a little now.

Thanks Gizord! I guess I could have made it shorter but just saying for folks to check Atwood's if they have one in their area. Lol!

I may just be crazy, but a few weeks ago I had a dream that I found ammo... No joke, I was freaking out because they had 22lr, but then I woke up... Darn!
