Today I went to Wal-mart and they had a sign, due to demand and shortage of .22lr ammo, they were limiting customers to 3 boxes each. I overhead a customer asking why was there no .22 ammo in the case. The sales associate said they had received some on Sunday and Monday and unsure when they would be getting more in. I almost asked the guy why he wanted it but I decided to ask you all. Often here on the Monkey I see people post threads on good .22lr ammo deals, sales and availability plus post the same in the shoutbox, why? I personally like the .22 plus I think there are many 22’s in homes in homes across America. Baseball, apple pie, Chevrolet and .22 The reason I ask why is: Why is there a shortage? Did they cut down on production or are people consuming/stock piling more? Why do people want it so much? Most on here will say your EDC (everyday carry) should be of a caliber to take down a moose. And I have seen lots of opinions that the bigger the gun the better. So what are people doing with all this .22lr ammo?
