    Good points and well stated, but ...

    Blah, Blah, Blah ... the guy spent $352.77 + shipping, over 35¢ per round, for 1000 rounds of .22RF ammo which is MUCH higher than current market prices. As Bugs Bunny might say, "What a maroon!" Hahahaha :D

    We shoot far more .22 than any other round. Kids, newbies and I can send a lot of ammo down range for a decent price. We have been known to go through 2k rounds in a long weekend.

    I bought several bricks online in December when I realized it was gone from local stores but as the weather gets nicer we may blow through my supply by summer. I will try to pick up what I can locally but won't be paying really high prices. I will just be out.

    I get the impression that if you go buy anything on GunBroker, you are either stupid or desperate.

    its understandable that 22lr is almost impossible to find these days, but people need to be patient and not feed these gougers.

    I guess that's my point: patience!

    When the last gun in this country is banned, we might see .22lr ammo disappear. But, until such a time, this is probably the most widely available and politically insensitive ammo on earth. Sure, it's hard to come by at the moment. But, we all know (or we all should know) that it will be back on the shelves again in the not too distant future.

    Does it suck that things are so hard to find right now? Yeah, it sure does. But, I'd rather sit on the sidelines for a couple of months than spend $0.35/round for .22lr plinking ammunition. That's about what I pay to handload match-grade ammunition for my .308... at that price I'll just shoot the big gun.

    I really do understand the skyrocketing demand for anything black, tacticool, Pmag-ish, or AR-ish at the moment. Nationwide these are the items that are under the scrutiny of gun-grabbing politicians, and these items could become a lot more scarce in the next year or so. But, .22lr ammunition isn't going anywhere in the foreseeable future.

    What are you talking about? It clearly states in the auction:
    It's for 2 BRICKS of 500 rounds each (10 boxes) for a total of 1000 rounds.

    2 Bricks x 10 boxes/brick x 50 rounds/box = 1,000 rounds

    Yes, the text says 2 boxes. But most people go by what they see before they bother to read. I would bet a dollar the two guys who bid it up thought they were getting all 10 boxes that are pictured. As a seller, I would not picture anything other than exactly what was being offered.

    SaxonPig, I think there is a very good chance that you are correct.

    The text says 2 BRICKS - BRICKS of 500 rounds, not boxes of 50.

    Now I'll grant you there is one picture in there of ten BRICKS stacked up, but the title and the text clearly state how many rounds and how many bricks are on auction.

    I'll agree you that your position would hold up in court. It is however, misleading.
