Found a brick of Aguila Subsonic price wasn't great but, subs are hard to find. Also found some 10MM.

Local Walmart had a crap of .22LR in 333, 550 and 525 bricks, had other pending tasks and could not return at 5:30 p.m. time.

There's a simple solution to the ammo shortage and high prices. STOP BUYING! Think about it, if gun owners were to organize and stop buying for a few months or more there would be plenty of ammo and with less demand the price would come down. We are the problem!

I have bought 22 wmr ammo but I am not guilty of buying any 22 LR ammo during the shortage. I may not buy any 22 LR ammo until supplies return to normal. Not having a lot of 22 ammo forces me to shoot larger calibers more often.

Talked at the range this morning, fired some 9mm and .22LR; but, 12 gauge bird shot and buck shot were the majority shot.

Anyway, at local Walmart had a fight in the parking lot when the scalper purchase the entire amount of .22LR , which was about 5 to 10 cases of .22LR brick form.

Walmart has put little tags on the boxes, indicating not for re-sell. Will it stop the scalpers - NO! Deter them - NO!

So they are not limiting purchases to 3 boxes? I think most Wal marts are right now.

Talk to the manager at your Wally World and ask for a 3-4 box limit.


In many areas, the LGS scalpers have been the biggest problem.

Buy from Wal-Mart, and re-sell for 100 percent profit.
