Do you know that WalMart will only sell you 6 boxes of ammo in one transaction?

What are you maniacs doing with all that 'ammo'?

How many boxes is 'enough'?

It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.


We're going to take over Scotland.

So, get ready.

AND, we're not going to wear those funny dresses while playing golf at St. Andrews, after we take over all your golf courses.

I think you have already taken over.

It does seem a little mad to me that grown up people want to shoot things.

I can see the merits of defending one's self...or even the right to bear arms but...

Other than that...it's all downhill.

Dude, we don't just hoard it, we use it. My buddy and I would go through 200 rounds in an hour just target shooting. It's an expensive way to have fun, but there is nothing illegal, dangerous, or sad about it. It a great way to have fun with your kids too.

If you think we are crazy, then go over to ar15.com

They purchase in 10,000+ round lots, and they don’t even count rimfire ammunition.

They ship orders via freight….

I think that is a pre requisite of wal mart employees, (especially in the sporting good department) I find the same problem with the one here in North MN

I think them doing that is based on supply rather than some institutional decree.

I've bought way more than 6 boxes at a time from them recently.

This trend seems to vary from location to location and is either routed in local supply on hand or clerk ignorance.


I am not really into guns, but that would be my guess as well. I have friends who buy ammo from wally world and I have been with them when they have bought more than 6 boxes.

They may have just been running low, so they had to limit the amount per customer. That is just a guess though.

Thanks for replying...and videos.

I did think you were stockpiling...however it does seem a mindless pursuit.

And it wouldn't be my idea of fun to play around with kids and firearms.

It seems a little silly and shallow...and pointless.

It's just my opinion though...I like to be honest.

You should learn how to press your own, provided you have an area to do it safely. Making your own is probably the most cost efficient way to go about it.

I waited to by some 22 ammo for about 15 minutes and they would not come to help me at Walmart. I walked around the open counter and started looking for the box I wanted. Security guards surrounded me ready to draw, but nobody ever came to open the case. Please remain 16 inches from the ammo or face death.

A difference between honest, and coming across as someone trying to put others down.
Being from England all I've got is a BB gun. and I still get lots of fun from that, could only imagine how fun a rifle would be..

Here in the US many regard firearms as just another tool, like a hammer. We still use these tools for many things and don't always associate them with violence. They first
appeared on these shores, borne by the Great British Empire and some Conquistadors..

Here is a place where I get alot of my ammo. The russian spam cans are the cheapest. The ammo is ussually pretty good although dirty to use. My rifles handle it all really well.

Okay, let me put it this way.....How did Sir William Wallace fight off the English invaders of Scotland for as long as he did?

Did William Wallace challenge the King of England to a golf game, winner take all, loser go home?

No, of course he didn't. William Wallace had enough swords and battle axes to fight off the English armies, for a while.

Okay, how come William Wallace got executed? Simple, becuase the English came back with more swords and battle axes than the Scots had, and Wallace was drawn and quartered.

Okay, translate that to America. If we didn't have the guns we have, then the Mexican Mafia would come and assassinate all of us who opposed having our children made into crack cocain addicts.

America is a tough place to live in. It's even a tougher place to live in if you are unarmed and stupid.

My local Wal-Mart also demands a pistol permit for handgun ammo. Now I know what you're thinking but handgun ammo can be used in rifles too. For instance, my father has a High Point rifle that fires 9mm. This isn't much of an issue for me as I hold a concealed carry permit, but for someone who doesn't this presents a problem.

Hello

I ended up going to the store again and grabbed 4 boxes and paid for them. Then I went around the corner and grabbed another guy and got 5 more boxes from him.

The Suckers!

You Yanks don't know how lucky you are.
Over here Asda (The UK Walmart) will only sell you 2 boxes of paracetamol.
I think they'd keel over if they had to handle ammo.

I've never bought ammo at Wal-Mart but it wouldn't surprise me. They won't let teenagers touch up the paint on their old cars unless their parents or someone over 18 buys the paint for them. I guess the typical peopleofwalmart dot com type don't mind or they would be out of business. Personally I avoid it as much as possible but what amuses me most is the grocery dept. It never ceases to amaze me how many people buy groceries there, I don't know about everywhere but where I live it is one of the most expensive places in town for groceries.

I go through alot of ammo mostly 9mm,308, and 7.62x39. And i dont reload so it can get expensive. I would never buy ammo in a wallmart or at a local gun store. It's too expensive. Look on line for deals. I just bought a bunch of stuff from ammoman dot com because it was on sale. cost me about half what i would have paid in a store.

Hello All

Thanks for all the replies. I just found out that there was a policy that banned how much ammo you can get at walmart. They discontinued the ban sometime ago. I guess just like anything the message is slow to tracvel downhill to floor managers and the help.
