    Driving to Milwaukee yesterday I stopped at a Walmart in WI and the ammo shelves were not empty! They had .380, 9mm, 38 special and yes 22LR hollow points, 225 in a box! I bought three boxes as allowed and stopped on the way home to get three more and they were all gone! At least I hope this is a good sign that ammo is starting to trickle back into the stores - this is the first 22LR I have seen since before Xmas except for the $100.00 per brick thunderbolts at the gun shows.

    You just got lucky because they must have just stocked their shelves. I ran into a similar situation a few weeks ago.... Haven't seen a box of 22 in I don't know how long.....

    The Spokane,WA gun show had LOTs and LOTs of 22lr ammo.

    Most were OLD stock bulk ammo from wally world, price was any where from $35 to 85 a box. Just walked on by. greedy gougers.

    Oh ya, that was late Sunday on a three day show.

    Must not been the only one not buying!!!!

    Maybe the Shelf Elves aren't doing their job?

    NOPE,

    Wally World caters to the low income, hard workers

    Costco caters to the wealthy and high paid non-productive workers(those jobs where it's evil to break a sweat)
