    I'm sure it went to a dealer who will make a 200% profit at the next gunshow.

    "To ensure all of our customers have fair access to inventories, this product has a quantity limit of 1 per order, per customer, per day."

    At least they are being decent about its availability.

    They had the Winchester 1000 packs for $50, Remington 500 pack for $23.

    Me and my buddies at work each ordered a Winchester and a Remington at 6:00 this morning, with shipping came to either $76 or $87 depending on what card you used, etc.

    I'm still in pretty good shape personally, somewhere over 30K rounds. I figured I could put this in the classifieds for $50/500. I'm only looking for 100% profit, not 200%! :neener:

    LOL, actually bought it so I could give it to some local kids that I've been supporting with 22's for the last 5 months. Hasn't been anything at all in the stores down here.

    Hopefully it's a sign that things are coming back!

    Not a bad price. Every now and then our local Walmart will have Federal Champion or some such .22LR fodder on the shelf for a decent price.

    I always pass on it as I already have several thousand rounds (and have for years) and don't want to be a greedy SOB as so many appear to be today. I figure someone else needs it more than me and hope it goes to that guy.
    In all likelihood, it probably went to some schmuck who wanted it to augment his 20k stash that he never uses or to sell at a 3 fold markup somewhere else. But at least I can tell myself that I'm not contributing to this mess.

    Thanks for the heads up though. $50/1000 is certainly a fair price these days.

    The site was still taking orders when it went out of stock (due to a glitch).

    Some got in on that, but its back-ordered.

    At that price, its still worth a "reasonable wait", for a BO (as long as you have got some other 22LR on hand).

    Cabelas, Is it in stock or out of stock?

    I went to Cabelas web site and ordered 1000 .22lr for $50. Not bad, the pre-shortage price was about $36.00. They were said to be in stock. The confirming email said they could be picked up at the store 5/29 or later. When I went to pick them up, I was told that they were on "indefinite back-order". When I called customer "service", I was told that the internet is not accurate because they do not know how many are in the warehouse. So, here we have a national retailer who checks merchandise into the warehouse, but does not enter the quantity. Yeah, right. I asked her how they know when it is sold out if they don't know how many they have. No answer. The "service" person was very nice, very cheerful. When I told her how disappointed I was she, more or less, told me to get lost, indefinite back order, like it or lump it. I then told her to cancel the order and that I was VERY unlikely to patronize Cabelas in the future. In a very cheerful voice she that was fine.

    This is an example of Cabelas "legendary customer service".:mad:

    I wouldn't buy anything from them. It is the old shell game. BTW I was able to order 5 boxes of 38 S&W from SGAmmo which I had been looking for for over 5 months. I have purchased from them before and have nothing but good things to say about this family run business.

    Well, you guys can have all of it. The only real fun I have in my .22 rifles is using Blazer or CCI.

    At least many of you guys/gals have Cabelas or Academy. For some reason the best grocery (Publix) and sporting good chains (C., A.) never move into the Memphis area. It might be that distribution warehouses are not nearby, even though Little Rock has Academy.
    This is a retail backwater.

    When I went to one of Tom Givens' Winter Conferences at Rangemaster in Memphis my traveling partner and I went south into Mississippi and visited some decently stocked big store there. Think it was a Sportsmen's Warehouse? We don't have those where we live. I thought it seemed OK.

    Yeah, our S W has it as do most gun stores now, but you get 1 box of 500 rounds.

    I went to Cabela's the other day. They didn't have any rimfire at all. Oh well. I did find some last week for the first time in months. I could only get 4 boxes but it was better than nothing. I felt like I could shoot a little bit. I don't like to shoot unless I can replace my stash (which isn't nearly big enough - I have about 7000 rounds of rimfire maybe - Heck I've shot that much in two weeks before.).

    Thanks. Will check into that among friends down in Southhaven/Olive Branch.
    What attracted me at Cabela's in Grand Forks ND/MN a few years ago was that they sold used milsurp rifles (!), and had a special gun library.

    And the only Academy I've visited- October '08 in San Antonio- had a nice selection of ammo etc.
    Somebody at their General Offices had made a mistake with a decimal point, ordered ten times too much Monarch, and had cases worth of 20-rd. boxes of 7.62x39 selling for $3.00 each. Luckily we were there with a large car-taken away from the elderly in-laws at the A.R.C.
