    Ok so I was fibbing. Check out what I found at Wal Mart late this afternoon.

    .40 S&W cases

    .40 S&W (100) Round boxes

    .45ACP (100) Round boxes &. .223

    9mm, .380, various rifle calibers and more .40 S&W.

    I saw no .22LR at all. Still a (3) box per person per day. Wal Mart everyday low prices. Gotta love anti-gun Southern Illinois.



    Sorry for the crummy cell phone pics. I was getting bumped out of the way by the hoarders.


    In case you are wondering, I didn't buy any.

    Walmarts in Fort Wayne have about everything except .22's. 3 box limit- rifle and pistol, no limit shot-shells.

    Why the run on 22 lr?
    I met a very nice retired gentlemen the other day that shoots 22s with his wife. He mentioned an AR type 22 rifle that uses 100 round mags. He said he preloads 3 mags and chews through a thousand rounds on a good day.
    I've since noticed a lot of those guns are marketed as a cheap alternative to 223 rounds.
    I don't get it but tastes and preferences...
