10 dollars per 20, while not bad these days, is still double what it was a scant time ago.

OT= original topic.

Olf, so it's a 'Star Bellied Sneeches' kinda thing then? Cool.

No, actually not.

I just thought you took an unnecessary 'cheap shot' at him and it pissed me off.

I agree that it's still too friggin high. I think the ammo companies took notes from the gas companies.....Way overinflate the prices so when the prices come down a little we wont feel so bad paying the inflated prices. :dontknow:

I don't know ole fart personally but kind of understand where he's coming from. Not trying to put words in his mouth but I think he's trying to say that, if you can afford to support this site, you should. I worked until I was 68. I'd still be working but it's hard to get someone to hire you after 70. I live on a fixed income. .....but I feel that if I can afford a computer and a ISP for whatever a month I can afford to send $25 to SA every so often. It's called paying your way and an old Southern tradition. It's also sometimes lost on some of the younger generation. But that's just me.

I agree with you Ken, and pirate I am a little younger than you but pay the dues when and if you can. Hope to have a bunch of stars one day. Was at GTO the other day and was surprised at the number of weapons to chose from. Wife had to drag me out kicking and screaming before I spent money I didn't have. Check them out for what you need.

Thanks, Chuck and Pirate. It's just the way I'm made too I guess. 'Nuff said.

I realize we live in much different times, but when I was a kid you could walk into the Western Auto store on
the town square and buy a box of 50 .22 LR for 69 cents plus a penney tax. Honest. And you could buy a little
box of 25 for not much more than a quarter. I don't remember the brand for sure, but I don't remember any misfires either.

Of course a loaf of Bunny Bread was 23 cents then too. :?

Just watched a show ruger inside out and they are opening a plant in N.C to keep up with demands and hornady is slowing production of some of the unpopular ammo to try to keep up with the popular it's going to be awhile before things back to the way they were

Just an observation. While ammo has become scarce and very expensive, some would say over priced, Has anyone noticed the the price of stars to help support SA has NOT increased one dang cent? Food is up, parts is up, clothes, gas and movies are up, but the SA site support increments is EXACTLY the same.

Hows that for value........y'all ? :idea:

That price is not all that crazy for 22 hornet. Long before the ammo crisis it was 50.00 a box and remember there is 50 in that box.

Yep, brand name was Peters Ammo. I worked for Rainbo bread in 1965, they trained me on the Corbin route and a loaf of bread was 22 cents, a pack of hot dog buns was 18 cents.
