Just got an email from outdoorlimited.com. The email had listed Aguilla 40 GR .22LR at .038 cents each for quantity of 5000.

How times have changed. As kid in the 60s, 50 years ago back in a small town in PA a local sporting goods store would sell us shorts for 1 cent each. We would scrounge some loose change, take some beer/soda bottles back to a story at 2 cents each and we often would be able to buy 50 - 100 shorts for some fun shooting rats at the local dump. That was a time when recreation was much simpler and the guys at the dump would pay us a nickel for every 10 rats we would shoot. What a great life I had. Anyway, figuring in inflation over the past 50 years. .22LR for down around 4 cents each isn't bad. Compared to just 5 years ago we are much better off. Now is the time to hoard and shoot.

I just got home from a few days at the in-laws, and the case I ordered from Outdoor Limited was on the porch.

Seems it has been there since last Thursday, so... that's 5 days.

I really do not need them, I am a certified hoarder (not a scalper, I buy ammo to shoot, not to profiteer or sell) and had more than 30,000 rds before I ordered this case.

I could not resist the price.

Here is the link.

Would they sell you those penny rounds after you rode to the sporting goods store in your parents new $2000 car, and then take them back to their new $12,000 house?

Yep, times sure have changed.....

Not quite, we rode over to the store on our bikes with the rifle across the handlebars. No parents in sight. My parents never had a new car. I doubt they ever paid 500 for any car they had and, they paid 5600 in 1959 for our small row house 40 miles outside Philadelphia. That 5900 might have been expensive since you can buy the same type of place in Detroit today for less that. I also doubt they knew I was out running around with that Remington bolt action single shot. The guys at the dump knew who we were and said if they saw us being unsafe they would call our parents. The guy at the local sporting goods store knew our families too. It all worked out just fine, except for those rats. After a few weeks of each summer went by, there weren't that many rats to shoot.

You should have come down and hung out with us on the trestle, never a shortage of carp and gar to shoot below. But you did have to keep you ears open for that whistle and not be too slow on your feet.

That is a great price on my favorite ammo! If they have free shipping, I'm ordering a case.

Wow. $44. I've been thinking of ordering from them. That brings the cost up to most of the other supply houses.

Must be close to my age since I was a lad in the 60's. Never liked shorts much, but yeah, $.01 cent/rd is about right. I bought .22LR for about 1.5 cents per round. No junk yard to shoot rats, but we had a creek where everyone went shooting for free. Very different times back then. Real good times at that!

Too bad no free shipping.
When I was a kid 12 years old a box of long rifle 22s was 49 cents at the hardware & I could buy them without a problem but times were different & everyone new everyone.

Heck ya, I remember the 70s ( I was about 10yrs old) my cousin and I running around the outskirts of a little town in west Texas. We would take turns shooting an old beat up tube fed bolt action 22 rifle that had the feeder spring missing from it, just shooting rabbits, rattlers, cans and occasional skunk. We would cut grass or clean a neighbor s yard to earn some cash to buy what ammo we could afford. We would wake up at the crack of dawn loaded up with rifle, ammo a couple of balony sammidges and a couple of canteens of water and wouldn't come home until close to supper time. My mom or Granma wouldn't think nothing of us being gone all day. Miss them days!

Yes. I still have some less-desirable ammo that I bought during the shortage.
