    Default Where's the 22 Caliber Ammo?

    Hey guys. I'm going to buy a 22 6-round revolver soon and I can't seem to find any ammo for it. Walmart is always out of stock. budsgunshop.com is out of stock. Where can I buy some? Thank you.

    i got lucky awhile back at midway, you just have to use sites like this one made from a forum member and check often(every few hours)

    Ask your closest gun dealer when he gets his shipment in. Then camp out on his doorstep the night before. My dealer gets a shipment in on Thursdays and limits buyers to three 50 rd boxes. He won't hold them for me but usually calls when they are in. BTW, welcome to the forum, and good luck with your new purchase.

    Walmart is a sh!t operation. They never change their stride for anyone or anything but themselves, so don't waste your time. On the other hand, Dicks Sporting Goods and some other large outdoor retailers are now maintaining at least some stock of 22 cal ammo, and the store near me (Dick's) has bricks in stock. Some small gun shops have ( and always had) some 22 stock. Some have maintained fair pricing and others have gouged. Remember those who have gouged when this blows over. I will remember Midway for maintaining ethics and doing the right thing during this ammo crisis. I know that they are overwhelmed and can't accommodate every request right now, but they went above and beyond in my case.

    Many of the gun shops here in Indiana keep reserve ammo in back for people who buy a firearm so they have something to shoot. Ask wherever you are going to purchase the gun from, if they have ammo for gun buyers.

    Wal-Mart likes to stock ammunition at around 06:00 to 08:00 and from 23:00 to 01:00 from my experience. Early bird gets the worm! Or bird who's up too late at a friend's house...

    For the poor slob that works 8-5 every day and thinks he'll grab a box of 100 from wallyworld on his way home from church on sunday, well good luck with that. You need to do a little detective work, find your leads and work them. For me, auctions, gun sales, a couple LGS that know I will give them my business. That has all worked out very well for me and will until this blows over.
