Was over at the local PA, floor manager was surprised at my interest in the jsb .177
She made note of my request in .22 cal, also mentioned that the owners son was younger & his influence was bringing in more ag stuff.
So I called 2 days later & kid that answered the phone said; Yes JSB .22 was brought up in the meeting just today & they are going to bring it up with their buyer.
He seemed more familiar with JSB & the AG stuff in general. So people if there is a PA near you .. call them & inquire about .22 jsb. "request" = supply.

Funny you mentioned this. I was at PA the other day picking up some .177 JSBs and the assistant manager was helping me. Had this almost exact conversation about the JSBs themselves and them needing to bring in some .22. He told me that they need to show there is demand and the best way was to e-mail your local Princess Auto through the contact area of their site and ask for them to bring them in. I also mentioned that their prices were a little high.

I really would not mind paying a couple of bucks more considering shipping cost if ordered online. Some vendors have a minimum spending amount too.
I bet if they got a dozen emails & a few calls that were to reach some sort of management level that they would bring in the .22 as well. After all they are already carrying em in .177 :axe:
So thanks for that tip .. makes sense to email them too ! I shall get on it pronto ...
Told em about the forum too & the floor manager + cashier were amazed that JSB is used frequently in the Olympics. They themselves thought the prices were a bit high compared to Grizzlies, Crosman etc. & people would not buy em. Stock them & people will come I said...
To be honest I'd be thrilled if they started carrying the whole line :ANAL:

X2 and they are already carrying them right!?!? The tin of 500 .177 I bought was $16.99, a couple bucks cheaper wouldn't hurt either. I'm willing to pay a couple bucks for the convenience of having them right away though, obviously lol.

Finners crossed!

4 months ago, but obviously they care little about pellets and more about airsoft.

mike87gt thanks for joining in ! .. I sent mine last night as well.
I might send one on Ricks behalf too ... lol (Kidding !; thought I'd add that)
Getting tired of CPHP used to be once in a while get a bad tin but of late it's the other way around.
Those "Readers Choice Gold" seal ones in particular have their skirts all a mangled mess.

I went to the home screen, then at the bottom hit "Contact Us"
It lets you fill out a few boxes and sends it
I got one back today and she said she talked to the floor manager about getting the .22 JSBs on the shelf!!
