Went to store for some primers and powder yesterday---got to lookin around---a lot of empty holes in the rack that had a bunch and I mean a bunch of 10/22's the last time I was in there.

Asked about what was in back---3--1 DLX and 2 blued/syn----I now have the 2 blued/syn on lay-a-way.

Was told thier AR's and 10/22's were flying out the door---to their credit --no prices were raised---same as they were 6 months ago.

What's it like where you are?

What part of the United Socialist States of Amerika are you from?

In the Philly area they're a little hard to come by, but not completely sold out. I haven't seen any used ones at the gun shows though...

One guy by me has some late 80's/ early 90's ones, but he wants a mint for them. They're new / never fired, but they've been bouncing around the racks for 20 years and show considerable wear. He wants $282 for a basic non checkered standard 10/22. It's got many scratches in the bluing and lots of dings on the stock. The same gun new at another place was $207...

In Omaha

I put both of those NIB rifles on lay-a-way priced at $189 each.

In NH, our local gun store hasn't raised their price either, and hence, they are pretty much sold out of everything, the shelves are practically empty.

I've found a few online sites with several in stock for the standard $300 MSRP, as well as several on gunbroker for anywhere between $150-400 depending on condition and options.

My guess is that they are the least expensive "worth a d@#$" semi auto rifle on the market? The ammo is cheap and expendable, and you can get very high capacity magazines.

I bet there are a lot of first-time rifle owners buying AR's, and they want something cheap and easy to go along with the AR.

i found an old 'Field & Stream' circa 1994 while in the VA waiting room, it had a K-Mart flier in it advertising $124 for a 10/22.

I think I paid around $189 or so for my carbine from Wal-Mart a few years ago. Has been a great little rifle. All I've done to it is install a bolt buffer, a power custom hammer and an extended mag release. Slapped on a huge scope and it's been a blast to shoot, surprisingly accurate with the right ammo.
Sorry, edited because I realized I forgot to answer the question. No problem finding 10/22's by me, my local shop has 4 or 5 of them on the rack in either black or camo, one with a bull barrel.

Finding a used one in Alaska has proven to be a challenge...

the ruger 10/22 is like the honda civic of guns... i have one and i was so dumbfounded by the amount of parts available, that i decided to keep it stock... (for now... the bullpup stock looks kinda neat...) :)

I just bought one so I can use it to shoot cheaply. Lots of people are probably cutting back on expenses too. The one I bought was sitting on the rack at the shop for at least a month, and he still has a target model, and a bolt action one I believe.

I was at my favorite pushers, I mean dealers a couple of nights ago. They didn't seem to have any shortage of run of the mill 10/22's or anything else for that matter.

I've developed a "sweet tooth" for 10/22's myself recently. I've got four now, and put another one on layaway that night. The ones I've got are all DSP types. The one I put on layaway is an oder SS carbine with a green laminate stock, that I understand was sold by Wal-Mart. Made in '95 by the S/N and Rugers website. It was in great shape but will need a good cleaning, and that's coming from a guy who thinks a 22 needs cleaning every Feb. 29th.

The regular run of the mill ones were going for $189.00 IIRC. They had a half dozen or so "on the rack" and more in the back I'm sure.

The next I want to look for is an "international" full length stock model.

For me, it's just a fairly nice gun, I can afford to collect.

Luckily they are not very scarce here in Central Florida. I went to a local gun show this weekend and I saw quite a few new and used ones. Good thing, it was the only reason that I wanted to check out the show.

I found pretty decent used one from around 1990. Completely stock. I did OK on the price but the dealer was only willing to come down $10 on the posted price. Oh well.

I have not even fired it yet but I was curious. I took it apart, all the way down to the individual pieces of the trigger group. What a simple gun.

I am hooked and I haven't fired one round.

You and me both, brother! have you seen what they go for on gunbroker? 5-600 bucks is crazy, but if you want one I guess you pay the piper.

That's why I say I'm "looking." :D

Nope, plenty still on the shelf at Walmart.

Couldn't find any Henry .22's though...

not a one on the shelf at the local Wallys I've been to, but it doesn't strike me as unusual seeing that hunting season is full tilt here.
at least I'm hopeing they will be restocked.

I picked one up a month or so ago for $199 NIB from Gander Mountain, they had tons of 'em.
