    That is what I am used to paying too. I have been searching on line and in stores for the past 6 months with no success.

      Went to the gun show last month. Bought 1000 rounds of .223 and 1000 rounds of 9mm ball ammo. Paid around 60cents a round for both.

      Gonna have to practice head shots. Ammo is getting so expensive you can't afford to shoot anyone.

        I wish I could contribute. A few years ago, I lost all my guns in a boating accident.

          I can confirm. It was a sad and tragic day. Lost everything.

              For concealed carry, this is a good piece. Very compact, affordable, and functional. Made in Florida

              if I carried something that large it sure wouldn't be a peashooter like a 45 acp.

              There are some cool magnum 45 wildcats though.

                Duuuuude.

                You gotta be more specific.

                Kentucky? Northwestern? Arizona? K-State? Bethune-Cookman?

                  1. This is how I approached the pocket pistol as well. I love the .22 and am confident in my ability to dome someone at self defense range. CCI Stingers (CCI Mini Mags if Stingers are in short supply) still leave the short barrel screaming with devastating effect on vitals, yet minimizes overpenetration as long as I hit the target. With 10+1 and familiar Ruger design, it was a no-brainer for me; Ruger LCP II .22lr: [​IMG]

                  I'm not a fan of 22. especially when you can get the same gun in 380. get the highest quality ammo you can find. like CCI 's best stuff.

                  I have probably seen a thousand misfires out of rimfire guns for every one that I've seen out of the centerfire.

                    That is a valid concern. I'm fine with my LCPoriginal in .380 as a seldomly carried, dump and run piece.

                      I understand that sentiment. My particular gun runs the ammo I use with no issues. I trust it and know how to clear it should a round fail. Even though it's CCI premium ammo, it's still a dirty cartridge, so keeping the gun clean is a must.

                      22lr ammo has come a long way. Stay with the good stuff and you'll find it's damn near as reliable as centerfire ammo. I love the low recoil of 22 and my ability to place shots where I want them with fast follow up shots. However, I would never presume to recommend someone else to carry it. The important thing is to have a plan, be prepared, and practice practice practice.

                        Yes, for sure.

                        My experience is the opposite, particularly with Remington, Winchester, and Federal bulk ammo. 20 years ago I'd buy that stuff anf it would run just fine, mostly in Rugers and Marlins.

                        Today, 1: 10 dud is fairly common. Production moved to China, India or.some other shythole and the quality is crap. I never had good luck with CCI stinger in certain guns (length issue), but most other CCI was flawless.

                        I've never really had trouble with 22 magnum ammo. They just don't seem to avoid cutting corners as much in 22 Magnum. If for some reason I needed a rimfire handgun for defense, it would probably be a magnum. If you have enough barrel, there is a noticeable difference in velocity.

                          Here's a professional tip: don't run; just walk away at good, but not hurried pace. And as Clemenza said, "And don't look nobody in the face, but you don't look away either."

                            I find the CCI 36 grain Mini Mags will work in just about anything. The 40 grain Velocitors (CCI) are nice, but I can rarely find it nowadays.

                              I saw some Velocitors recently, $14.99 plus tax for 50. I kept my hands and my wallet in my pockets.
