Pretty amazing yesterday I was on TargetSports USA looking for some 22mag and 45acp for a buddy. Have membership, card on file....email comes in for CCI SV 22lr and time stamp not lagged on the minute. Boom instantly go and drop 2 each 500 round boxes in cart....site says 99+ available for both 500 bricks and 99+ 5000 bricks. Click 'Check out'.....literally 15-20 seconds has gone by. All sold out. Something seems awfully odd about that I guess it's possible that many people were online at the same time as me and bought all of it in under a minute? Seems like I may have been competing with these *bots* I have read about. It used to take 15 minutes or so for any given ammo to sell out and now it's down to under a minute? Either way my membership is up for renewal next month anyway so cancelled it there is no value in it *for me* to pay $100 bucks if I can't secure an order in under a minute when I'm literally on the web site already. Madness. What's even more nuts is that is only competing with membership folks b/c they don't push ammo sales out to non-members until 3 hours has passed. Oh well.....it do what it be. I'm sure a ton of the CCI will be for sale on GunBroker by next week.
Sounds like a replay from my last attempt to order. I have tried the same thing and shutout several times. I even emailed them and received some lame bull shit explanation. F off Target sports.

    I'm not mad at them and I'll buy rimfire from them again one day when the world calms down. Just don't see any value paying a membership to get a shot at ammo first if they are overrun with automated purchasing bots....kind of like a donation at that point. Ammo world is a little too chaotic for me and it's only for rimfire the rest is reloading.....I'll live just a little disappointing. Win some ya lose some.

    I guess it is not an app will kinda. It is called discord. If anyone gets set up and needs help send me a private message and Ill show you where to go. It was super simple for me and you can get any kind of notifications you want. Projectiles, brass, primers, powder, etc, etc. Pretty handy and cool way more up to speed then most platforms.

    Some shooters laugh at them but a good quality air rifle can be a lot of fun to shoot.

    When the foreign born biracial Marxist was in the White House fo4 eight years, I got really good at tuning spring powered air rifles. Once they are tuned and find the right pellet, you will be amazed at what they can do.

    I use golf balls for targets for my rimfire rifles but don’t use them for air guns because the pellets will bounce off and fly back at the shooter.
    I think we are in the minority, but I get a lot of enjoyment out of high end air rifles and pistols and even some of the lower end stuff. In particular, I have a Thomas field target air rifle for competition and a SCBA tank for charging it. I also have a couple of Steyr LP10s and an indoor 10m air pistol range. I compete in SASS too so I’ve tried to duplicate the rifle and pistol portions of those stages using metal targets and single action air pistols and air rifles.

    That said, there’s still nothing like pinging a 1200 yard target. But there will be time for that in years to come.
