I check online the big sports stores, and some times get indications that they have ammo in stock. But it takes a visit to actually fine any. I just walked into local Academy Sports and there on the shelf where CCI minimags, and Browning 9 MM. So I purchased what they allowed me, 3 boxes each. My wife did the same. We added 600 22 Lr. and 900 9 MM. to our stock. That is more than we shot from the last time I found ammo.
So far we have increased our stock during this shortage while still enjoying our regular range visits.
I got to the range and shot the standard barrel. I started out with CCI standard velocity 40 gr. hollow point. Then some CCI MiniMag, Federal Auto Match, and Remington Golden.
The kit functioned flawlessly and was a pleasure to shoot.
THIS WAS FROM 25 FT.
I will add that a couple stalls away from me was a shooter firing a full auto AR 15 pistol that acounted for some of my lack of accuracy.
Got to take my second grandson to the range to shoot a few rounds, he had the BuckMark I had given him back last fall. He also shot some with the S2 with the 22 Lr kit. He liked the weight of the S2 and made a comment about he thought he could see the rounds hit the target.
The standard barrel is getting more accurate each time I shoot it. Both of us where putting all the rounds in the 10X at 25 yrds on a IPDA target.
I had experienced some light primer strikes from the S2 Kadet, and did some investigating. I found that the Kadet needed a stronger spring, so ordered and installed the 16# spring and the result is no more light hits. It did make a slight increase in the trigger, from a 2.5 to a 2.8 pound pull.
