Ammo availability

As to the chances of finding any popular ammo during these times of 'the troubles', I picked up another .22lr pistol.
Pro- Accurate, light, feels like my 1911s, well priced, fits my 1911 holsters.
Con- A pain in the ass to take down, mags are expensive, will only cycle with high velocity ammo.

I had a nice get together with my kids last Sunday.
Three of them are nurses, two VA, one Children's.
They all told me the rona is coming back and their wards are filling up.
At Childrens, they have a lot of sick kids, 1-13yo.
Don't like the sound of that.

I ordered a wifi outdoor camera from Amazon and it works better than I expected.
Cool, I'll get another one for another blind spot.
Prime deducted $54 from my bank, gave me a delivery date of about a week, and a tracking link.
A week goes by and I see its at a Fedex facility about ten miles from here. So far so good, right?
Next day I see it's in a Fedex facility in Oakland, CA. WTF?
Day after that it was delivered and signed for in San Francisco. Shit.
Since May 5th I've got no response from Amazon, no refund, no replacement, email, nada .
Fedex tells me "not our problem, go to Amazon".
So now I'm out a bottle of good bourbon or a coupla boxes of ammo.
Maybe if joined the riots I could loot Amazon for fifty bucks worth of shit.
2020 is not shaping up real well.

Just talked to my daughter and she tells me the fever broke and breathing is back to normal.
She tells me that her hospital [Palo Alto VA] is still very short on PPE.
