Just got back from a week in a rented cabin up in the mountains near Waynesboro, Virginia.
This cabin is some 12 miles outside of the city of Waynesboro, Virginia …close enough to come to town for the stores and far enough out to be out of cell phone range. No cable tv here. Beautiful up there in the mountains with a stream flowing downhill behind the cabin.
Stopped by the local country store and bought some .22 long rifle. Five boxes …250 rounds. It was some $3.50 per 50 rounds . Later in the week I returned for 5 more boxes and have put them all away.
Carried two short guns with me and carried concealed the whole time we were about town or anywhere. This group at the cabin had three men and one woman who had concealed carry permits. We carried steel with us every time we went about. Not looking for trouble…but this is also black bear country. They occasionally come down and raid the trash cans at the local picnic areas. The trash cans are usually and immediately ceded to them…the picnic areas shut down by wildlife management. But now days we are more concerned with the nature of two legged wildlife…of all kinds…and there were young children with the group.
Carried my favored Ruger GP 100 in four inch barrel…357 Mag….and alternated on occasion with a S & W Model 57 six inch 41 Mag. Speed loaders for both.
The rest preferred to carry 9MM autos of some kind.
I did not see any .22 long rifle in the case at the local Wal Mart. Same thing here locally for years now…back at home…at the local Wal Mart. Haven’t seen any in years here. Occasionally at Bass Pro..but not at Wal Mart.
Wondering if it will become more locally available than in the last 8 years.
Had a great time in the mountains and are planning next years trip to the cabin. Caught some trout and had them for dinner. Trout make for a great meal. Like them even for breakfast with eggs.
