    All of the reasons listed above. I am better than 50 years old, and have shot more .22 ammo in the last 4 years than in the previous 15 combined. Having a ball doing it too, especially with the 7 year old grand son in tow. It is to the point that I pay him for little chores with a hand full of bulk pack. He for one, is not in the mood to "hoard" as he shoots it up as fast as he can talk me into taking him. Gonna get expensive to have him around before many more years pass......but you should see the list of chores I am compiling!. The "little" things in life are still the most fun.

    Other than 223,556,7.62,9,22, I haven't been seeing any consistency in ammo shortages. Some stores have lots of 40. Some have no 40, but lots of 38 or 357. The only thing I've seen on the shelves consistently is 380 and 45.

    Don't knock the 22. That little 40grn in the right spot works just like the big boys. No shortage here but in a "hit the hills" situation you can carry more of it. It's deadly in the right spot, probably my favorite round around the house. I carry either a 40 or 45 but the 10/22 & MKII will be take with me first.

    Those .40 grainers are no slouch. You hit the right spot, it penetrates pretty good. I could just not imagine if someone gets hit in the head, it will be a through and through .
