why the fuck is everyone buying .22lr guns and ammo?
have a wallpaper in return
a lot of people stockpile .22lr because
>its cheap and lets you say 'ive got 10k rounds of ammo
>its moderately versatile
>muh ricochet for vital organs
>i can't handle the recoil or cost of 5.56 guns/ammo
>tfw I bought 10k of .22lr 1 month before Sandy Hook.
22 is fun to shoot.... It's really easy to shoot several hundred rounds a trip so stockpiling when you can get it at a good price makes sense to me...
the .22lr is one of the if not the best survival weapon to have i have done a lot of research on this my self. to start it is extremely accurate and cheep to shoot. it is good for small game hunting and can even be effective for killing coyotes and animals of similar size up to 100 to 200 yards i know this because where im from coyotes are in season year round and i have killed many coyotes with my Remington 597. also can be very effective for self defense as well due to the fact that majority of the time the .22 projectile will not exit the body instead it bounces around inside of you tearing up vital organs making it very deadly. all though i wouldn't go for a head shot due to the lack of penetration the round has but a well placed body shot or neck shot could be very fatal. not to mention its quite as hell. so would this be my first choice when shit hits the fan NO but it serves its purpose and who knows maybe they are poor fags and that's all they can afford
I'm sitting on probably 75k os .22 right now and to be honest I haven't shot a .22 in years. The only gun I own that is chambered in .22 is a Ruger single six.
My aunt is the sporting goods department manager at the Canton, Ga Wal-Mart. When .22 arrives she puts it aside for me, then I come in and she goes on break and buys it with her discount. I have been very lucky with .22 the last several months.
Hunting mostly. I have about 200 left. Good for squirrels, rabbits, raccoon, etc. Even coyote actually but I'd prefer 5.56 or x39 for that. Good for teaching new shooters too.
In the end, it's just a cheap cartridge for plinking and small game hunting. Stocking up on ammunition for your rifle and CC of choice should be your primary goal though. If you use a .22 a lot, then you buy a lot.
what ever floats your boat just laying down some facts for you fags. like i said first choice hell no ill be grabbing my AK and my AR 15 before anything ells im just saying it has its benefits. but for real i wouldn't mined sitting in a bush shooting some darkies with a nice 22 hallow point
everyone screen cap now tweet/facebook to walmart
And say what? Some lady somewhere in your 1000 plus stores is putting aside one box or so a shipment and selling it to her family at retail?
The other guy said his location and the store so you could actualy catch the bitch and her whelp of a kid/nephew.
1. dont bother calling noone cares, she is the boss of that department and as long as it doesnt lose money they dont care.
2. she puts more than one box away, like i said at least 75k rounds in the last year.
>tweeting or facebook posting on a stores page will more than get their attention
>you said she buys at discount to turn around and give to you
>gave her location and title
>corporate will have her fired by the morning
>they will show her the photo and she'll know her chuckle fuck nephew lost her her job
I'm "stockpiling" it because it's been impossible to find post-Sandy Hook. The market has just started to stabilize, but I don't expect it to last long thanks to Obama's bullshit.
Why would you stock up on .22LR? Because of the lack of availability. Same with .223, that shit is the first to go whenever there's a scare.
Ya'll niggaz forget what it was like for a year after Sandy hook where you couldn't buy ANY popular calibers except Super Deer Smasher 9001 loads in .30-06 and other Fudd calibers.
Because 22 guns are inexpensive and 22 ammo is inexpensive?
It's great for training or giving to a kid, or if you're some crazy who wants to shoot silently with subsonic ammo and a suppressor.
The real question is, why haven't ammo firms increased production to meet the increased demand? Are they afraid that it's just a bubble and once it ends their extra machinery will sit idle?
>Are they afraid that it's just a bubble and once it ends their extra machinery will sit idle?
By the time they can actually implement a new line, the climate can change wildly.
All that needs to happen is a few of these sorts of bills getting through: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/dec/23/new-york-lawmakers-float-bill-to-restrict-gun-ammo/
They have no reason to invest in more equipment. They are much better off selling 100% of their production and keeping their overhead at the current level.
the likeliest of scenarios...
I can just picture about 75% of "preppers"
But this is a good thing, so long as you aren't a picky eater. If SHTF, not only will you have a large amount of food wandering around cluelessly innawoods, but that food also comes bearing ammo, top-end gear and weapons, and pouches full of snacks.
