    We're lucky here in Canada. No shortages of any ammo. Still cheap too. Come on up here and buy some!!!

    One of my classmates showed me a picture of his brand new Tavor he just bought this morning. He was complaining that he doesn't know when he will be able to find ammo to shoot it. Beautiful gun to look at though.

    Today at the local Bass Pro, a box of 325 rounds of .22 was $17, limit one box. That's about five cents a round.

    According to this video that is normal daily production, at least two years ago it was.

    There are something like 7,000,000 gun owners in Canada.

    The start of something tacticool. I finally got my parts together for my lower. Assembled in about an hour , not including the 30 minutes I spent crawling around my garage floor looking for launched detent springs!

    Now I'll be on the hunt for the upper parts.

    Cody,

    Nice looking AR! Kind of the "after" to my "before".

    What components did you use on the upper?

    Well that was for both springs. The front one I was trying some trick I saw in a video and launched the detent and spring towards the darkest corner of the garage. I found the spring so I had to continue looking for the detent. At 20 minutes I was about to give up and I found it under my bike. After that I held the detent down with the pin and it slid in super easy.

    The rear detent spring shot out as I was tightening up the stock. It only took 5 minutes to find.

    Caffeine and gun building don't mix.:eek1

    Nice stock on the 10/22. I have been looking at ordering that one for mine. If I do, I want to add a tactical rail to it on the bottom. The only thing that I am waiting for, is that some websites show a picture with a different butt. Looks kinda like a Magpul. I would rather wait for it. I also heard that they have changed/are changing the compound in the plastic to make it less prone to flex in the heat, a problem that many have written about in reviews.


    I scored a 500 rd case of Wolf .223 today for $165 shipped. Last time I bought a case was in 2009 from Cabela's and it cost me $185 or so. I figured this was a good deal and grabbed it up. I know some don't like wolf, but I have had good experience with it. There are some videos out there that dispel rumors and show what to look for to see if the rifle is not taking to it so well. My Mini-14 has never had trouble with the stuff. When I first bought the rifle there were some teething issues. Couple thousand rounds later, the rifle seems to be working just fine.

    I have yet to pay inflated prices for ammo since the scare began. You just have to be patient, and in my case today have very very good timing.
