  • So it's impossible to buy ammunition these days

    Specifically .22lr ammo. 

     

    I decided to put a scope on my .22 (bolt-action small game rifle), and so I went to the store to pick up some blammo to go sight it in.  I needed ~50 rounds.  Well there is none.  Anywhere.  I went online and did some googling on why this is the case.  Apparently a bunch of nuts are hoarding tens of thousands of rounds of the stuff so that they'll be able to fend off govenment opression when Obama comes to take their cold, dead, guns. 


    This makes absolutely no sense to me.  If we were talking about AR's being unavailable, or 30 round magazines, I guess I can see the rush to get them before they're banned.  Not that I have any desire to buy such a thing, or that the ban really has much chance of passing the House, but at least it has some kind of connection with what's going on in the legislature. 

     

    But .22 ammo?  The ****************?

    That sucks.  I've heard you can rig a makeshift, untraceable firearm with 22 rounds, a bit of radio antenna (the section that's .22 ID, naturally) nailed to a board, and a hammer.  I bet that's it.

     

    Or manufacturers are redirecting raw materials into the guages people are stocking up on.

      From what I've read on gun-afficionado forums, people are just buying a ****************load of 22 ammo.  I guess because it's cheap, so it's the easiest thing to stock up on.

      ****************ing doomsday preppers are cramping my style once again.

    It's not just.22 ammo brother.  It's weird.
