I don't think it's going to clear up anytime soon. It's just getting started. If you don't already have it and you really want it, it's going to cost you.It's getting pretty dang bad when a man can't even buy a 10/22.
Hopefully this will clear up soon.
Check some pawn shops. I know Specialty Pawn on Pace had some last time I was in there but they weren't cheap.
