Looks like walmart may be trying to put pressure on the debates by either not selling guns and ammo at all or becoming a registration point for all firearm transactions. new and used

If they do stop selling ammo all together, I dont really care. More ammo for other places. I never liked shopping at Walmart for ammo anyways. Nobody I know does. Most of the clerks in the outdoor section of the stores have no clue what they're talking about, prices are not anything special, messed up/crushed boxes, ect.... In my area, the Walmart stores stopped selling guns altogether a few years ago.

I went into my local one for ammo a few days ago, but it didnt matter. Everything was sold out. The only reason I decided to go there was because all the other places in my area were sold out. Dicks, Academy, Bass Pro, and the local range. It's not just the common rifle ammo, like .223, that's completely sold out. 9mm and 40 S&W are pretty much gone around here, and .45 is almost gone to.

I can see what all those 777 Gold places are going to be next.

Guns and ammo stores.

As I understand it, at least here in Las Vegas, a shop can either deal in guns/ammo or do loans like title loans, while being a pawn shop...but can't do both.

At least this is an observation, I've never seen the two combined before.

That said, awesome! The more places to buy ammo, the better. There's plenty of supply at our local Bass Pro.

The price of common ammo has shot way up at the local shops near me in NH.

That's probably fueling people to hit Walmart in order to save money, and that would drive down their stock eventually..

I HATE WALMART! Good for them yet another reason for me to NEVER shop there!
Plenty of gun stores all around!

Wal-mart will only be hurting their own sales figures if they do discontinue firearms and ammunition sales again. I stopped shopping there entirely the last time they stopped selling firearms. I did the same thing with K-mart when they stopped selling firearms and ammunition. There are many people who think the same way I do, and I believe it is the reason they brought back firearms in the first place.

This ammo shortage looks to me to be a counter measure by tptb. It was the only way they could fight back against the soaring sales in the industry. After all they did order a huge amount of ammo last year and it looks like this is the result. So what's next?

I spent the day combing the Dallas area looking for ammo. I needed to replenish after whitetail season.

As a previous poster mentioned, the big box sports outlets in Dallas are sold out of practically everything. I finally found some 22lr in a non-chain, mom & pop store. I bought their last two boxes....

The calibers I saw sold out were .223, 7,62x39, (military defense-rifle) and then 30-30 and 30-06 and 308.

Every store I was in (all six!) had at least varmint loads like .243 and .270 plus a lot of 7mag Of course this is Texas and 7mag is a bit too big for our smaller deer.

The pistols were VERY picked over; the only remaining guns were competition pistols or else high-end jewel-encrusted pearl-handled ACP's for $4000.

The mom & pops still had "assault rifle" (military defense rifle). The guy setting them out for display said that they weren't moving much now---everyone who could afford a couple had already spent all their money. He said all the sales today were panic buying ammunition, people who wanted to fill out their supply.

He also said that, until Obama's speech in the morning, that the ATF wasn't letting ANY guns, ammo, or even accessories cross state lines. I have no idea if that is true. They had ordered a whole truck of remmington products, but that the shipper couldn't come to Texas until after there is some ruling on it now...

A worker in one of the big box retailers had told me you could order it online and have it shipped to you; but by 5 pm. when I had made it to the mom & pop stores, customers were saying that they are told there will be a delay, backorder, or that it won't be legal to ship ammo to consumers after tomorrow, and so they couldn't originate new mail orders.

Rumors fly, don't they?
