.22 ammo's still scarce...

While it's not as scare as it was, .22 ammo can still be hard to come by.

Mike Vanderboegh shares this assessment at Sipsey Street:
If you have to blame anybody for the shortage of .22 Long Rifle, blame Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve or the vastly expanded community Preppers who because of the Fed's actions no longer trust the currency and are trying to put their limited resources where it will retain the most value.
When it comes to .22 Long Rifle, ammo makers simply can't make the stuff fast enough to satisfy current demand.  It's been almost a year since my friend Don shared his thoughts on the .22 shortage, opining that years of shortages may lie ahead.
