    I'll be content when you can get a pound of powder with your Polar Pop at the corner Circle K.

    I'm paraphrasing, but someone else on the board once stated "I will not rest until you can buy an M249 from an airport vending machine".

    Been seeing quite a bit more down here also. Rural Kings in Jasper and E-ville have had Geco regularly the last 6 months or so, RK in E-ville today had at least 15 bricks on the shelf. Academy in Owensboro had a shelf full of various flavors of Aguila and CCI a couple of weeks ago. One LGS never really ran out but their prices, . A couple of other places across the river have been getting in quite a bit since the first of the year.

    I travel a lot to areas that have never been hit by the 22 shortage for some bizarre reason so I try to bring back a couple boxes and sell at cost to help out. I was in Huntsville Tuesday and the 5 guys that I was teaching had never heard of a 22 shortage other than the shelves going bare a couple days before the next truck when they got another couple cases. (hell, they can buy non-volatile reloading supplies at Walmart down there! They carry everything but primers and powder)
    Funny you should say Alabama. I've made a couple trips over the last year down close to Birmingham for work also, and found the same thing. First trip I brought back about 10,000 rounds for The Plinker household and a couple of my nieces and the second about 5,000 more.

Over the past month it has just sat, nobody looks to be buying any of it. They seem surprised at this.
    This the place in TC or the one across the river? I've been "talked into" buying quite a bit across the river. Guess they needed the shelf space.

    That ammo is nasty.
    Assault is a behavior, not a device.

    I find the most interesting aspect of this is the economics of it all-- in particular, how people's expectations affect things.

    There is very much a self-fulfilling prophecy aspect to this. Rimfire ammo scarcity is most driven by the belief that there is scarcity or will be. If people think they will be able to go down to RK or Dunham's any time they like and find a brick at an acceptable (if not reasonable) price, then people don't buy it just because it's there. And when that happens, the ammo stays on the shelf and away we go.

    Prices will fall. Slowly, but surely, just as gasoline prices eventually fell from the crazy heights of $145/bbl.

    But that price falling can NEVER happen until ammo starts to show up again on the shelves-- and stay there long enough that people aren't buying mostly out of the insurance aspect (in case they can't buy it later).

    I'll take your word for it. I don't need 22 ammo but always looking

    What I thought. May need to pick up another couple bricks for The Boss today so she'll quit shooting up all MY ammo.
