off topic but--

got a real good laugh out of your "good times" photo...

i did that very thing back in 1959 or early 1960 as a 3 year old--got a real zap, and walked around for days sayin, "pug it in shuckey" (plug it in, shocky).

though my mom is 94 years old now, she still has that knife, with about 1/4 inch of the pointed end completely melted off...

Q: What is the difference between sex and .22 ammo?










A: It's possible to have enough sex.









(Not my idea - this was spoken by my friend around 1983 as we walked out of the K-mart store with two cases of Winchester Super-X ammo each. They were about $90 per case IIRC.)

Wildhobbybobby: Wow!
That is an impressive munitions cache!
I thought I had a lot - at about 10,000 rounds of 22 L.R. in 3 types and some 2,000 17 HMR rounds along with 500 17 Mach2 rounds and a similar number in 22 Magnum - I also have about 400 rounds of rimfire shot shells come to think of that.
Enjoy some quality trigger time with your "cache".

I pulled my Browning SA-22 out of the closet last week, and since then, realized that I don't have near enough....

probably only 5 or 6 bricks

my nine year old daughter is addicted to burning it up thru "our" Remington speedmaster 552. We shot half a brick just this Monday while she was out of school for President's Day.

the panic hasn't set in here yet, ammo is still plentiful on the shelves at Walmart. I hope it stays that way.

I look at the $8.97 price stickers on the 40 bricks of Federal Bulk HP in my stash and giggle uncontrollably.

Then I look at the stickers on the old yellow box W-W Super-X and lose it altogether.

For you CMP'ers they have a case of Remington military surplus for 90 bucks plus S/H on their E-store. Get in line.

I'm upwards to 10k rounds stored under my desk, and still pick up a box every week or so.

Gotta love shooting that is cheap and fun.

Considering maximum accuracy potential, not just going "bang" and hitting a tin can or even a squirrel, I'm curious about the shelf life of .22 ammo.

I've heard different things about it over the years.

I'm curious as well. I had some old (20 year) .22 WMR ammo that split about one case in five on firing. Winchester replaced it for me but there was nothing wrong with it when I bought it. New ammo worked just fine in the rifle.

I find it harder and harder to accumulate a reasonable amount of .22lr ammmo these days as I have 2 grandsons who all of a sudden decided they really enjoyed shooting the little rimfires.

I got a good deal on some Federal AutoMatch before Christmas (325 bulk paks) and bought 5o paks -- each of the boys got 10 packs as a Cristmas present. When I went to the range this past week-end there were less than that 15 paks in my ammo magazine - I ask my wife if anyone had been into it and she said my two son's and the two grandson's had stopped by on the way to the range and picked up a couple of paks each. When I saw them in church I ask what happened to the 3250 rounds I'd given them for Christmas and they told me they were "saving it" just in case ammo got hard to find. I went home after Church and put a new combination lock on the storage magazine. It's a good thing they both have Anschutz bolt-actions as I couldn't afford to keep them in ammo if the yad a 10/22's.

Bottom line is I feel "naked" without at least 6 to 7K around the house.

Hi Vel, that pic is great! After hearing all the 10K, 20K, 40K responses, your pic just cracked me up!
