Shooting has always been an expensive hobby.

I’ve been listening to people whine about the cost of ammunition since 1970.

It is what it is.

They don’t put pockets in caskets.

Maybe if people hoarded less and worked more cooperatively God forbid, the less fortunate could shoot a few more clay targets.

What a load of crap CZ. You know damn well that current ammo prices are far in excess of inflation from 1970. A brick of .22 rim fire could be had for $5.99, and store shelves were brimming with it. A kid could afford to buy a brick with a few hours of minimum wage earnings.... But certainly not today.

The same goes for shotshells, and center fire rifle and pistol ammo. Really budget conscious shooters could save even more on cheap and plentiful reloading components. Now the stuff costs a fortune, and it is difficult to even find primers. Just look at your fellow supporter of anti-gun Liberal Left Democrats who was complaining in this Thread about having to resort to using 65 year old percussion caps due to the current state of affairs.

But it was supporters of anti-gun Liberal Left Democrats who are to blame for this mess. And it may get worse before it gets better. However, if you just keep dishing out bullshit, maybe someone will believe you.... like the same people who actually believe that a stumbling senile incompetent who never got even one percent of the vote in previous campaign's for president suddenly became so immensely popular that he got the greatest number of votes in U.S. history.

And if Trump had caused such an increase in gun and ammo prices, we'd never be able to shut up you and his other Liberal Democrat critics here. But Trump didn't cause this. You guys own this. And the low income folks you all claim to feel sorry for will get hurt the most by the inflation yet to come.

Shooting is, and always has been expensive.
It’s not shot gunners hoarding 22 shells.

It’s crazy people.

Big Green is back, just one piece of the puzzle regarding the shortage:

I'm seeing powder in various places in small quantities as well.

Yay, Remington STS are my favorite shells. I hope the new Remington ammo company does great. I look forward to shooting their shells. I hope they don’t change anything in terms of the original Remington components and recipes. Remington primers are my favorite too. It will be good to have them available too, and I hope it’s soon.

No definitely not me

I have enough ammunition of various forms to last the rest of my shooting life
And it pleases me to give it away when I want to


I came by it honestly, because I work for a living, and I look toward the future.

The only time I shoot 22 shells is when I am training for a big game hunt

I doubt that I have shot 5000 in my life

People that are sitting on garbage cans full of 22 shells should seek counseling and medication

Should we take your word for it, maybe this is theoretical honesty? It is probably many times more honest if someone goes into the sporting goods store for a couple of boxes of ammo and finds empty shelves. I think counseling and medication is for the four new sup court activists.

I have not heard about anybody hoarding .garbage cans of .22 rim fire ammo.

But I have heard about people having a very hard time finding it. And when they do find .22 rimfire ammo, it costs a small fortune. A garbae can full would probably cost as much as a new car today. They complain that they aren't able to take their kids out for an affordable day of plinking or practice. And it isn't just .22 rimfire ammo that has gotten much more expensive, and harder to find. It seems hardly a week passes since the coup.... I mean since the fraudulent election of 2020, that there is another Thread pertaining to the ammo shortage and massive price increases.... including shotgun shells and components.

And shooting has certainly not always been expensive. I managed to do a great deal of shooting as a kid spending my paper route earnings, and my money from part time entry level jobs in high school and college. When I see the current situation and current prices, I wonder how many young shooters are able to afford it. A co-worker was recently complaining that he bought a .380 auto handgun for his wife for concealed carry, but can't find ammo for her to even practice with, let alone use for self defense.

I also wonder why C Z thinks it is sane and rational for him to have hoarded a lifetime supply of ammo for his needs... yet he feels anyone who hoards .22 rim.fire ammo is mentally disturbed??? I'll tell you what mentally disturbed is.... mentally disturbed is being in denial about anti-gun Liberal Left Democrats in the House, Senate, and White House being the root cause for this mess. And REALLY MENTALLY DISTURBED is any gun owner who literally shoots themselves in the foot by voting for known anti-gunners!

When my REPUBLICAN Senator Pat Toomey aligned himself with anti-gun Democrats in 2013... I stopped voting for him, and urged other shooters to do the same. Period! I value my 2nd Amendment Rights too much to support any anti-gun [censored] under any circumstances.
