How many 10-22, mark 3, and buckmarks etc,etc. do you think will be sold without a decent ammo supply. What about the millons of 22`s already out there now? The 9MM around here is just starting to get low. I`m sure the other will follow soon. Hoarding is playing into the anti-gun hands!! No ammo ,means no useable guns now or in the future!
Sounds like you weren't prepared.

Take it as a lesson, and be ready for 'next time'. Don't do like so many others and, when things settle down, remain willfully unprepared

Also...can you explain why you are calling it "hoarding"?

I have 20,000 or more rounds of .22lr. I had that much last year, too. And the year before that. And the year before that.

As such I haven't bought a single round of .22lr since probably October. I'll wager that you have bought some since then and as such are more of a 'problem' to the ammo supply than I am. Why? Because I was prepared.

Seriously, it's not hard. *Most of the time*, you just stop by Walmart and grab a ~550 round bulk pack. Do the same next time you are there or drive by. It isn't hard or expensive.
The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
