.22 tracers
« on: March 26, 2014, 06:36:01 PM »
I saw this morning Cabela's had .22 tracers for sale on line.  I had found these elsewhere also, but Oh Man Pricey! (250 rounds for $99 !) 
I looked again later and they were OUT OF STOCK!
First who would pay that?
But then I a think- What fun that might be!?

Anyone here ever use such critters?

Not that much more expensive than regular .22 lr right now...  :angry:

I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.  I carry a lot of ammo because I cant run very fast.

Would not want to be the guy that fired the tracer, that started the fire, that burned down the range, that spread to the eastern part of Nebraska...... :o

Folks might talk about THAT person for a long time...

Shooting .50 tracers at dusk on a range that is clear for a couple miles is a lot of fun. Looks like a white hot golf ball heading downrange.

Spotter/tracer was even more fun...
