.22 Ammo shortage revisited

What is it with .22 RF ammo? A few weeks ago I found some CCI Mini Mag for sale and bought a couple of boxes. I'm looking around now and all I can find available is the Remington promotional ammo for four to five times its normal selling price.

None of the LGS's have .22 RF ammo. It's like a switch is being thrown. It's available, it's not available, it's available, it's not available. I don't consider 80-90 buck a brick for cheap promotional ammo as available. I consider that crazy.

Is it that demand has completely outstripped supply? or has the antigun antics of the left drove gun owners over the edge and they're behaving like a bunch of hoarders? Either way I can work around it, and do. Yet I miss the (good old?) days of fully stocked ammo shelves.

Here in my neck of the woods, shelves in stores are still empty. When the stores do get some, most have a three box limit or less. I have a fair supply, but, would like to start shooting again, without worry of not being able to replace what I use. I frequently deliver soft drinks to most of the local sporting goods stores, and, usually chat with them while there. The most common theme is that it is the exact same hoarders and flippers that are buying up all the supply. The stores tell me supply is getting better, but, you have to be there when they put it out because it gets snatched up quickly. The only stock that lasts on the shelves, is the bird shot, and that super quiet primer fired junk.
