As did I.
I plan on shooting all of it this year though.
Got a 22 can coming through the works hopefully by the end of the month or early next.
22lr is getting harder to find, not only as everyone got a 10/22 for Christmas, but more and more companies are making 22lr clones of their full-sized variants to make for cheap practice.
It only makes sense to go to the range and go through $20~$40 worth of ammo than to go to the range and go through $100 ~ $200 worth of ammo that it'll cost you $250~$300 to replace, if you can replace it in the current market shenanigans.
