    I think our Wal*Mart still sells handguns... haven't looked in a while because I'm not in the market. I think (don't know for sure) that they offer some things on a regional/location basis.

    With Cabela's, Dick's and many local gunshops in our area, several Walmarts do not sell guns.

    No real market for them locally, but other stores have both ammo and long-arms. Handguns require more work to sell, so some stores avoid the hassle and liability.


    As for .22, its simply cheaper to shoot, a lot of hand-gunners are practicing with it, and with all the .22 semi-auto's sold in the last few years, consumption as only increased.
    A couple kids can blow through 500+ rounds easy in one junkyard session.

    There are still some that hoard, but if you are a good customer, local gunshops will often help you out.


    The .22 shortage is a multiprong problem with several elements all working at the same time to drive up consumption.

    Fear hoarding,
    price hording(shops hold inventory to drive up price),
    more handgun practicing - cheaper than 9mmm,
    .22 steel challenge becoming very popular,
    more .22 semi autos in the market - more owners of .22 semi's,

    because of rushed production - bad lots of .22 which means replacement reduces inventory,

    Oh and a minor item, you can only ship/inventory so much stuff at a time for safety reasons, so you almost need a constant convoy of trucks -
    with a (half?) skid per trailer.

    Yea, it still frustrating you can find plenty of .17mag, but .22lr or .22WMR vanish faster than its placed on the shelf.

    Well for the first time in a while..... .22 inventory on Cabela's shelves.

    I was reserved and only purchased 1 brick of Rem .22 Golden.
    There were other varities too and much of the rifle inventory appeared available.

    Curiously, it seems the glut of Russian Mosin Nagants rifles is gone. Maybe the Ukrane issue stopped imports, but I saw none on the rack last time.

    And the last ones were pushing $200 for a mis-matched or forced matched rifle.
    My DS got a really nice matched (all parts original with same SN) for $110 a while back.


    Saturdays are a little more noisy as many neighbors are practicing in the afternoon.

    Ah yes, the joy - liability of country life.
