Fella's;

This is an outgrowth of a thread on another site.
Thought I'd bring the subject over here for our own
amusement. This isn't truly about reloading, but this
category is probably as close to the subject as this site
hosts.

The subject being: How much .22lr ammo you got right
now? Based on that number, you get ranked. The rankings
are absolutely open to discussion, lies, rumors, and
waves in the ether from Mars.

I have less than 50 rounds --------- Unranked, go to the
Jeff Cooper help center & check yourself in.

50 - 100 rounds --------------------- Pitiful Piker
101 - 500 rounds -------------------- Just Plain Piker
501 - 1000 rounds ------------------- Rimfire NERD
1001 - 5000 rounds ------------------ Enthusiast
5001 - 10,000 rounds ---------------- Serious Enthusiast
10,001 - 15,000 rounds -------------- Evil Hoarder!
15,0001 - 20,000 rounds ------------- Serously Evil!
More than 20K rounds ---------------- My Kinda Guy!!

We should be able to have some fun with this.

I fall on the lean side of "1001 - 5000 rounds ------------------ Enthusiast"
Only around 2000.
Shot shells about the same ASST.
I try to keep around 300 of every thing else I shoot

I know , whata a sissie wimp.

Evil hoarder.
The reason for the 2nd Amendment is so that we can keep all the others.

   I'm about equal with d---Enthusiast with 4,000.  But I've been building up my stock of reloading supplies not knowing what the future holds after the upcoming presidential election.  I'd guess you guys have been doing the same. My crystal ball says availability will be less and costs will be greater in the future.
Trigger Control is knowing when not to pull it.

Some kind of evil...


I do admit to selling off a couple bricks of Aguilla for $75/brick a few
years ago. Been getting 325rd boxes of Federal auto for $17 lately at
Walmart.
Talked to my distributor about the situation just yesterday. He said the
manufacturers are making him buy a certain amount of centerfire
ammo before they can get an allotment of .22's. Only the biggest
dealers or stores can absorb that kind of inventory. He thought this is
just temporary but had no timeline.

Endeavor to persevere.

Fella's;

It's perfectly legitimate to propose new ranking titles
also. It's also perfectly possible to poke fun at some of
the proposals put forth.

For instance, I'm an Evil Hoarder. But that's just a
ranking title that came over from the other site. I could
have noted it as: Well Supplied, or maybe Boy Scout - as
in "be prepared".

I have enough .22LR ammo to keep deaddog shooting
gophers for about 3 1/2 minutes.

I'm thinking we could change "evil Hoarder" to deaddog
weekend.

It is more fun than ever since I've gone "green" concerning noise
pollution. Just doing my part.
