This is wild!

The local store probably has a few hundred thousand rounds of .22LR crzy

Canadian Tire, Walmart and even TSC all have it too up here shrug

Oh, and the ammo they were low on earlier they are now starting to get.

This would stop the hoarding...I've been saying all along, if those who are in positions to resolve this issue wanted it resolved, it would've been resolved by now...this isn't rocket science...


You REALLY wish more government control over your life????????????????

Unreal that you would even post this.

What do you want next, the government to only allow single shot firearms so ammo will last longer till its all shot up?


You're reading to much into this. This database would only contain your name and the amount of ammo you're buying. That's it. If the gov wants to control our lives they already have more effective means of doing so than this type of database would provide...

Not at all...it would ensure more people would have access to ammo as opposed to the few hoarders who have it all now and are just sitting on it....

Just what we need, the government telling us how much ammo we can but, with no thought it lets the camels nose into the tent.

Reading to much into it????
You are not looking at the future ramifications of a law such as this.

You seem much to concerned with "I want mine."

Bet it has something to do with customs.

Yup. Doubt I could ship anything that resembles ammo to you guys.

I don't think there was ever a big shortage of .22 ammo up here.

Agreed, I don't recall there ever being a lack of it anywhere local, including CT.

Fear is a powerful driving force, much more so than intellect and reason.


If there ever is a doomsday, the guys with bigger guns will find the houses of all the .22LR hoarders and take it all away from them for their own 22 firearms. grin

I call ahead and ask when the ammo shipment is due. If you get a good sales person they will give you all the information you need.

The bad part is they limit you to 1 purchase over 300 round or 3 smaller boxes.

I have gotten lucky and have a few thousand round for shooting.

.22 ammo has gotten really expensive.


wow a whole 2 thousand rounds of .22. sleep like a baby NOW I bet

You seem much to concerned with "I want mine."


Well duh, that's the point. Put the ammo back on the shelves so sport shooters like myself can get back to doing what they like to do instead of all the ammo going to hoarders and people looking to make a quick buck....

Sorry Grampi, we're just going to have to wait for it to all work out. But why did you not prepare yourself back when our current "leader?" go elected into office. You could not see the writing on the wall? I thought it was fairly obvious.

Now with that said I have a huge stash of ammo, but it was purchased long, long before this madness started, much of it back in the 1990's. Just bought it when it was on sale, much as I do with motor oil, toilet paper, and other consumables we all use daily or weekly.

I haven't purchased ammo or reloading components for years, wait I'll correct that, just last week I purchased 1,000 Berry plated 9mm bullets.

I guess I didn't feel the need to start hoarding ammo just because of who was moving into the WH...unfortunately a lot of others did....

Well you can always go to a gun show and pay $50/$75 bucks for a brick of .22's.
