Where has all the .22 rimfire ammo gone? This weekend I went to 6 sporting goods stores in the greater Houston area and there is no .22LR or .22 mag rimfire ammo available. This includes that store with the big bass on the front of it and the worlds foremost whatever in Buda, Texas (roadtrip). The .17 stuff still seems to be available in most places. I can understand supply not keeping up with demand due to military and law enforcement use with some calibers but we are talking rimfire ammo here. Nothing online either except Out of Stock and Back-Order tags. Everybody hording it up or what? No pistol ammo to speak of either. I don't want to but I could reload .40 and 9mm but no such luck with the rimfire stuff.

We can all thank obama for this mess. I am suprised that ya'll are runnin short in Texas. It is somethin of a two edged sword too. It sends a message to obama that we take our arms rights very serious. But it also clears the shelves for his ammo registration/control if he succeeds in gettin it thru congress. If you find it buy it. For now that is the only way to have it on hand. Good Luck!

I know many a shooter that can't afford ammo for their center fires, or are saving their current stocks, and have switched to shooting 22 rimfires to keep their skills up. It's had the same effect as centerfire ammo, can't find it or it's expensive.

I had 2 bricks ordered thru my local dealer but when they came in they rationed them out at 2 50 round boxes per order on hand. They called and said my .22's were in and did not tell me that they were limiting to 2 boxes. Ended up a waste of gas so they could spread the wealth.

What arrogance! There is no justification for that. If they asked first thats one thing, but to do that sort of thing is the psoter child of "bad business"
