I'm working on a SHOT round-up for this week's DOWN RANGE Radio podcast. I'm definitely calling the 2012 Show the "Year of the .22 LR." I think there are several reasons, but I want to highlight and discuss 4 for Wednesday:
• The Great Ammo Shortage of 2009/10
• Gun Culture Ver. 2.0 discovering that guns are fun to shoot
• Enhanced training opportunities with the .22
• The canny marketing of companies like Umarex and GSGI also want to talk about the abrupt acceptance of the .300 AAC Blackout and the "suppress everything" movement, which is now in full swing.
