This is too good not to share!

I purchased a .22 cal air rifle (Benjamin Marauder) due to the ammo shortage/cost. This morning I was in our local Walmart, and as always checked to see if they had any pellets. There were several on the shelf, so not wanting to be greedy, only picked up two packages.

I got home, and was about to open then/put them away, and they I saw it..... and had to rub my eyes and look again..... so.... tell me what's wrong with this picture? (Hint: Look closely at the packaging, and then at the actual tin)



Wonder how this is going to work when I show up at the return counter? Walmart has a "no returns" policy on ammo....but wonder if it covers this? Let me guess.... it's the fault of covid?

Well the package also reads "400" pellets but the can reads "500" pellets. COVID causes stupidity?

I haven't opened them. I thought about trying to return them, but then again, they are worth the price for conversation. Wonder how many of them got sent out before they caught .177 cal pellets in .22 packaging... if that is indeed the case.

I was gona send an email with a pic to Crosman, but all I can find is a support form, that doesn't have any way to attach anything.

LOL. The shooting God is encouraging you to pick up a .117 rifle or pistol. This may be a collectable item like error stamps, coins/currency, etc.

That's the reason I haven't opened either of them! I did send a message with a pic off to Crosman... to see what they have to say.
