    Another sign the 22LR shortage is breaking loose...

    I missed my usual 8am stop at Academy (290 @ 34th) because I needed to catch up on some missed sleep. Decided to stop by anyway on my way into work, around 9am.

    To my surprise they had ~10 of the Remington Golden 525 count boxes and probably 50+ boxes of Aguila (red/yellow box?). They said no one was lined up this morning either. I bet if you went by there at lunchtime there would still be some available.

    To those of you still looking for 22LR: hang in there, it is showing up more regularly and will eventually get to you!

    Things are the same way up here in the Dallas area. The only difference is the Academys don't stock bulk but maybe once or twice a month so it's frustrating when most days you can only grab two tiny boxes of .22 per trip.

    I was at Academy yesterday around 10:00 am and they just started unboxing the .22 ammo. It was funny watching the people\word spread around the area they has ammo. I hope they did that on purpose to keep the resellers away

    I would love to see them start randomly putting it on the shelves, just to upset the neck beards. :)

    I wonder if the Academy at 290/1960 has any? Hmmmm.. Going right past there today too.

    Bless them.

    Every time I go, they either have anemic Colibris or those high dollar Federal loads for $19.97 for a box of 50.

    Did you know that Academy's revenue stream is better than Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops?

    Same here. At least the Academy's in Pasadena & I45-S & Edgebrook.

    What were the 525 count boxes running?
