The amazing part is that the person who filled that thing up actually managed to find .22 somewhere to buy.
Why is it so hard to find lately.

It's starting to come back. In my area they don't have the big brands like CCI, Remington, or Federal but we are getting some weird brand .22 LR so it's happening. It's also helpful that my revolver switches cylinders so I can use .22 Magnum while I wait it out.

hmm, that's not that bad. I remember .22 magnum ammo was so pricey for what it was a few years back that it actually turned me off from getting a rifle. I suppose that's not so bad, I've got a few boxes of .45 acp that I got from my recently deceased uncle, he was paying 40 dollars for a box of 25, which is ridiculous. at least I'll be able to shoot my pistol for a while without breaking my wallet.

Yeah, I prefer lower caliber handguns. Revolvers are my favorite, with my two favorite calibers being .22 Magnum and 357 Magnum, depending on what I'm using it for. My dream gun would be a Colt Python with a 6 inch barrel, nickel finish, and wood grips.

What model is it? That sounds like a pretty sweet setup and I don't think I've heard of anything quite like it.
For me I've got an old Marlin .22 that was used when my grandpa bought it in the 50's and a Walther .22 from when they first started making them so I don't need a huge reserve of ammo to keep them fed since thanks to all the people rushing to buy ARs I have no difficulty finding cheap as all hell 7.62x39.

Mine is the Taurus model 992. It's a double/single action revolver that has a 9 round capacity in both cylinders. I bought mine in stainless with a 6 and 1/2 inch barrel and I intend to swap out the squirmy ribber grips with some solid wood ones. Truth be told it looks similar to a Python and that is one of the reasons I bought it.
I used to have a Marlin, fantastic gun. It was a 39A with a gold trigger.

I try to keep a supply and only shoot what I can replace. I wouldn't call it the same as hoarding but I probably have more than I need. I'm not one of the people prepping for the end of the world, but- hey- it never hurts to be ready for something.

there isn't a shortage. there are just asshole speculators, hoarders, and opportunists screwing everyone over. the other day, I was looking to buy some 22 ammo. I got to the store in time to see the last few boxes sold for 30 bucks a piece. (which is still 20 bucks more than it used to cost). I then saw the guy in the parking lot trying to sell it to people for 50 bucks a piece. I asked him if he even owned a 22, and he said he has never owned a gun in his life. It is seriously messed up that someone would **** people over like that. (and no, I didn't buy anything from him)

on an unrelated note, I was just able to get another crate of surplus 7.62x54r before they go outta stock again.

No.

They may be trained for .22, but i highly doubt they ever use them in combat. Aiming for and shooting someone in the head (below helmet and above bulletproof collar if they have one) is incredibly difficult in a fast paced combat environment. Besides, if a soldier had some sort of shrapnel resistant mask and full body armor, they would effectively be invincible against the Spetsnaz.

.22 is a training round in every serious military organization. It is only really used by gang bangers who can't get their hands on some larger caliber and in World War-Z (great book, btw).

I would guess that Russian Spetsnaz are using 7.62x54 for DMR and snipers and for mobile machine guns.

7.62x39 obviously for rifles.

5.45x39 for shorter range compact rifles and sub machine guns.

yeah, if the dragunov is still being used, then 7.62x54R is still being used.
I'm kinda skeptical about the 7.62x39 for rifles, since 5.45x39 has largely replaced it in the Russian military, and the 5.45 has a longer range the the 7.62x39.
5.45 rifles also have the ability to be more compact than 7.62x39 rifles, which puts 5.45 ahead in range and close combat. It is a lighter round, so soldiers can carry more of it. The 5.45 bullet is also quite deadly, with the nickname "devil round."

all this leads me to believe that 7.62x39 is not in very common use with the modern russian military.

You also have to remember that blowing someones ******* entire leg off with a .50 BMG causes more damage to the enemy in a combat situation than killing one. The stress that the soldier goes through is effectively psychological warfare as you are scaring all of his comrades with the screaming/ pain and sight of the wound. Also, an injured enemy must be taken off the battlefield (expending precious time and risking more lives) and additional resources must be expended to get him to a medical facility and keep him safe and alive. He is also for the most part, unusable or a lot less effective on the battlefield next time. Ex-Navy Seal Richard Machowicz always extensively goes over this factor when talking about consequences on the battlefield.

I alternate carry between a 7.62x25 Tokarev, and a .22lr 1911. I feel comfortable using the .22lr, because I know I can land all 10 rounds at a short range on the target more easily than 2-3 with a larger caliber.

A Colt single action? You've got all my respect. That's a real legend of a weapon.

I've never been a fan of S&W semi-autos because of how strange the sights are on them (it just doesn't line up when you pull it up to fire like a Beretta or a Sig). Don't know much about their revolvers, though.

My particular model is a Colt Frontier Scout. Started in 1957 and the the New peacmaker had a .22lr from about 19701980. Mine is an Aluminum frame with a blued steel barrel, and it is about 80% as big as a normal Colt 45. I believe mine is a 57-58 because it a .22lr only, and most made later came with both .22lr and .22 magnum cylinders, and the barrel was marked accordingly.

I like revolvers because they have a snappy recoil. The Tokarev is similar because it is a very high velocity round for a hand gun. I have not used a S&W semi-auto, but most are plastic, and I don;t like plastic handguns due to the unbalanced recoil since the lower half is so much lighter than the upper.

The only 9mm I have personally tried and liked is a Beretta 92FS, most likely because it is so heavy.

That Colt sounds fun to use, but also sounds a bit expensive.

I'm a fan of revolvers because of how basic they are. They don't jam- ever. They also don't spit shells out everywhere, so cleanup's easier. Reloading without speed-loaders is a bit of a bitch, though.

I really like the Beretta 92FS because it's so accurate. The long barrel and everything just works. My father's recently become a big fan of the Glock, which I don't get because he used to say that the safety is unsafe and, like you, I have to have a gun made of metal. You can run a Colt over with a tank and it'll still work.
My favorite so far, though, is the Sig P226. It's well-balanced, accurate, not too heavy, and versatile.

P226 was a decent gun when I fired it, but I generally dislike the feel of 9x19mm, but I might like the .40 version. I traded a guitar worth about $400 used to my friend for the Colt, and they range from about $350-600. You can;t use A speed loader with the Peacemaker style single actions, I'll post some pics in a while to show why.

It's all about the balance. The Colt 45 design is one of the closest to perfect, which is why it is great for twirling. Unfortunately I have not fired a .45ACP, but my shopping list after my Henry is.

Can I recommend the Marlin 30-30? It's an amazing lever-action and really gets the job done. I see you've already got yourself a Henry and that's an amazing rifle in its own respect, but I wouldn't go to, say, Alaska without my Marlin. One of the best investments you can make in a rifle.

As for the AR, just don't put too much crap on it and it should be great. If you're planning on decking it out, I'm sure you'll know what to do, but just remember that the simplest ways are sometimes the best. Love mine and it works like a charm. It really groups well even up to 100 yards out and is pretty dependable as far as jamming, by which I mean that it will jam between 100 and 200 rounds when I'm using steel-cased rounds.

Business administration will get you somewhere in the corporate world. Just be careful and try to specialize in something so they don't decide to get rid of you one day.

30-30 is a great round, but it can get expensive because it is not mainstream. I want to get a .357 because it will share rounds with my future revolver, and I can also use .38 special in both. I want to start with a Rossi, because they are less expensive, but seem to be just as well built. Worst case, i can upgrade later.

For My AR, i want a cheap but usable bipod, and possibly a folding broom handle. I will also probably get a flashlight and laser sight at some point for fun, but they will mostly stay in the cabinet.

I'm sure my degree will result in something good, but I have been a bit lazy about applications. It is getting to the point now where I need to go full force before my free ride ends.

actually, i doubt you'd even be able to get more than a few out of that



and if you used one of those $2 ones they have at movie theaters, you could make a good profit

Except for the fact that this is not a $2 one. Its a 25 cent one and a handfull is only a few, but bullets are expensive, so yeah, you'd lose.
