does anyone in this state has any .22 LR for sale trade or anything?

People on gun broker are asking some crazy prices for a 50 round box.

I will crawl on my knee's to get some .22 LR right now. i have almost been in 4 fights trying to buy some.And still haven't ended up with none. I got cash in hand but i will not pay out of sight prices tho.

so Please if you have any you can spare please let me know.

What do you consider a reasonable price?

I see them on line once or twice a day for 7-9 cents per round...they don't last long though. You can buy all you want for 20cents/round and up.

I feel your pain. This is what i have done to fix the problem of the no .22LR ammo cause of no supply, hoarders, or shake down online sales. Pellet rifle - gamo big cat = $129 and 2000 pellets = $20. And if you want the crack of a .22 get some PBA.

Oh I have exchanged my thoughts with this guys several times now. Almost all of them are buying it to sell it on armslist etc. They are all a bunch of idiots and are the ones helping cause things to be the way they are.

Mike, I was told by one of the sales people at the WalMart in Pulaski that is exactly what is going on there. She said one of the managers is in on it. Said the store's employees come in at the time it is put out and buy up everything and take it back to their store to resell.

I have no reason to not believe her.

The way to stop this is to do what it seems most of us are already doing. DONT buy anything from them. I watch some of the price listings on some things such as 10/22 and AR mags, etc. and some of the people selling these things have had to drop their prices because of no sales. Let them keep them and when they have a stockpile of stuff they can't use, let THEM take the loss and WE wil benefit from it. Oh and one other up side for those of us who actually shoot is that most these online sellers probably don't realize that while it is legal for me and you to sell items openly, there is a restriction on how much you sell before you need a business liscense, have to pay taxes, etc. And as we all know about the internet someone is always watching and they got their hand out.

I put my orders in on backorder for 22lr brands I was low on back in Dec-Jan and they've started coming in the last 2 weeks. I went ahead and put in more orders for backorder since it might be another 2-3 months before I can get them that way I'm good to go the rest of the year.

If your local Wal Mart is like mine, then it is really easy to find out what ammo they are going to get in.

I tell ya what I found out these goons are doing here locally. They have arranged deals with the workers of such stores/departments. One of my buddies just quit working at the local Dunham's store and gave the down low. He said these regular ammo stockpilers would come in, give the workers there some extra money under the table to hold back the more popular shells...like the .22s, .223s, and 9mm rounds. Then they would come pick them up and pay them more money for doing so.

So when you or me would go in the store, we would get told that they were out...when in actuality, they had boxes stashed back for their "tip money" customers as soon as it came out of the boxes off the trucks.

Crow,

You need to tell the owner or manager what you just posted. What they are dong would be against store politicy and they can get fired.
