Define "what they need"? I can easily go thru 2 boxes of 22LR in 15 minutes or so and then shoot up some more from my "stash". So do I seek to replenish that stash whenever I can, since my normal useage far exceeds my ability to resupply? We as a family used to shoot a lot more, and now we can't. I spend 6 months trying to accumulate enough ammo to go to the range without touching my reserve supply. No one in their right mind would be shooting down reserves right now, since the day that you'll be able to stock back up is nebulous. 22's aren't like other centerfire cartridges. You can go thru a brick of 22's in a range session compared to one to two boxes of large caliber handgun ammo.

It's easy to say "don't hoard" and then spy two boxes of ammo on the shelf (limit is 1 per person) every 3 weeks.
