Exclamation Ammo

I have looked everywhere for cci mini-mag .22LR ammo. Does anyone have a link they can send me? I am wanting to buy say around 5k or 10k. Thanks

Sgammo.com might wanna keep checking back with them they have been getting orders of CCI mini-mag about once a week. Sadly right now finding ammo online is one of them things if you do. Order it right then and cross your fingers your order goes thought before they sell out.

So went to the range today to break in another new pistol. Well i got there and shot little over 100 rounds and was told i could not buy anymore ammo there because there was a limit of 1 box per customer and you had to shoot it there. So i sat there thinking about it for a minute and i was like okay i pay a membership to shoot here and now you are going to tell me how much ammo i can buy to shoot with. This ammo **** is really getting old. I mean it is bad enough you cant find it half the **** time but now it is hurting ammo range centers and long time customers who have paid memberships that shoot all the time. So instead of breaking a gun in with 200 rounds have had to resort to 100 rounds per new pistol. Just sharing some information.

People don't misunderstand what i am saying. The ammo crisis is hurting everyone not just customers it is affecting businesses nationwide also people will not spend money to go to a range if they cant find ammo. People will not buy new guns if they cant find ammo to break them in or even shoot with for that matter. People will not buy or pay for a membership at a gun center with all the ammo stuff going on. just sharing some information.

My point broke down:

Range per visit non members $19.95
1 box of ammo average what $14.99 or $18.00 a box and higher

And if a person is limit to 1 box of ammo to me it just doesn't add up. To me it is almost not worth it. How will a business stay a float like this. How will they survive and sale guns also if they have no ammo for the guns they are selling. I feel very sorry for the mom and pop places they will not survive this ordeal. Just sharing some information.

My point broke down:

Some permit safety classes where i live range from $60.00 to $90.00 and even higher

People will not get there carry permits if they have no ammo to put in a gun to take the course with. Therefore proper training will not be completed
I think everyone sees my point. Just sharing some information.

This is hurting current gun owners. Businesses. New gun owners. People seeking safety classes to educate or to obtain legal permits to carry. If no ammo to put in guns then there will be no need for accessories for our guns either. Just sharing some information.

Buying 10K makes you part of the problem. Why don't you buy 1 or 2K and leave some for other folks?

Depends on what you are buying, .22 LR is packed 5000 per case, 9mm ball typically has 1000 per case, .223 can have 500 - 1000 per case. I only buy by the case, it is cheaper that way. I thought ahead and bought my stuff before the current shortages.

Let me know where i can buy any and i will gladly buy 1k or 2k. The reason i said that is because it seems like just about everyone else is being greedy so thought i would be also. Whats that old saying the early bird gets the worm !

It is a temporary situation. Supply will return. Put the gun in the freakin' closet and wait. It makes no sense to buy 10,000 rds in the middle of a panic. You should have had 10,000 rds BEFORE the panic.

Your range is just trying to spread what they have and serve more customers rather that have one guy in there grinning and shooting it all.

I am fortunate enough to have enough ammo to last me a while.
As for gun sales.... I placed a .22 pistol for sale, and as an incentive, am offering 200 rounds of ammo if they want to purchase. At least someone without any ammo can buy a gun and shoot it a little bit.

I was just at a lgs and they were selling 22lr in plastic packs of 100 for $15.
They also had 38 sp. for $19 for 50.
I didn't buy any, but just wanted to show what ammo is going for around here (if it can be found).

Cool

OP
The LGS I usually deal with has had issues with mini mag availability on and off for the last year or so. Now its availability will really be sketchy
