.22lr and .223 in stock

Heads up...Palmetto State Armory has .22lr in stock...at about double pre-panic prices, but it's in stock. .223 for .45 a round, too. When I can get 5.56mm at .40 a round, I'm buyin'.

I don't get comped for PSA mentions...they just got 'em in stock.

Lots of places with PMAGs in stock at pre-panic prices, too.

    Cool - I received a flyer from Bass Pro Shops promoting the upcoming August hunting season specials, no mention of 5.56 but 375 rounds of .22lr for $24 - still a bit proud, imo.

    Reminds me of the situation with .410 factory ammunition - bought a break open .410 CBC shotgun for $60 - three boxes of .410 cost that much!

    Here in Canada I just bought 1000 pistol rounds of 9mm 115gr for about $400 .... ugh. And it's $31 for a 375-round box of .22LR (jacketed).

    Alexander Wolf, I know this isn't the best way to do this but I have a suggestion for a posting.
    Several years ago I had an M1A that could group 1.5 inches at 200 yards ( in the hands of a much better shot than I was or ever will be) With me, it was usually 3 inches at 100 yards. I came to understand that I was never going to be a long range marksman and that I had a nice, (expensive) rifle that was wasted on me. I sold it and got an SKS carbine (3 inches at 100 yards with a scope, with me being the limiting factor)
    My suggestion for a thread is an honest examination of what sort of rifle one should get based on a realistic examination of one's actual skill. I have a scoped 308 bolt gun for any real long range attempts on my part but the longest shot on deer that I ever took with it was about 125 yards.
    The SKS carbine is more accurate than the various AK semi-autos, usually has a pretty decent trigger, is still available for reasonable prices ( or was before the latest panic, I have a local gun show this weekend and will see how things are) and is really pretty easy to load with strippers with only a little practice. It was actually designed based on the russian military realizing that the actual range of combat was usually under 300 yards and more than that was unnessary thus smaller, lighter ammo and weapon. What do you think, a good topic for discussion?

    2. Jeepboy -

      Thanks for the suggestion - we'll see what we can do :)

      And the e-mail is valid - get lots of junk mail there every day! Must be something on your end?

      found out why it wasn't working. When I copied and pasted, I got an extra period on the end! D'OH!

    Academy in Corpus Christi, has gone to letting us buy TWO boxes of .22lr, 9mm, .40S&W, .45ACP, .223/5.56, and 7.62x39. from behind the service desk.---.308, 30/30, 3006,.38spec,.44mag,.357mag are all back on the regular shelves. 30 round AR mags have been back on the regular shelves since the end of May. START LOOKING FOR SPECIALS. By the way, AR's and semi autos in general have been avail in sufficient quantities since March and now appear to be fully stocked. Some of the more high-end .223/5.56 and .308 are still catching up.
