They have not had 22lr for a very long time. If they are serious about getting out of the firearms business, why hasn't they just sell off every thing already. Instead, selling their inventory now. It is either 1) they just got them now. 2) they see prices are not going up any more and might even drop.Field and Stream has been very well stocked the last few weeks even with firearms. I believe that it is because they are going out of the gun business, and are purging their existing stock from other store locations and their warehouses.
