How to use the Wal-Mart App to find Ammo

1. Get the App from iTunes store and Install it.

Update: Forget iTunes, Apple, etc

ammo-can.net -The best!

Let's get some feedback on how accurate this really is. I didn't realize you couldn't buy ammo at certain hours at 24 hour Walmarts.

There is an Android version too.

Wal-Mart is in the service business, they have no reason to hide anything. Ask questions at the help desk at your local Wal-Mart. They take customer satisfaction seriously. Complain !

I use the app, hit and miss. Not very great inventory database. Shows some things in stock, other things shows the store does not carry.

I purchased a Henry 22 today. Showed it in inventory, later, after I purchased it, showed not available at this store, not that it was out of inventory. That store also shows .22 mag ammo, and they do not have any. Has shown it available for a week.

Last Monday, that walmart sold three Colt's, and wed they sold a DPMS, none of which showed up on the app that I saw. The first colt sold as the dept opened at 7am, 2nd sold at 4pm and the 3rd one sold at 9pm. Never showed up on the app.

The app does help, but it is often incorrect.

It must be a tough job - keeping all of that inventory in line.

Used for a while now. Not accurate and not real time. Worthless.

Is the Walmart.com website more accurate versus the app?

The Walmart.com site is worse. Even further behind.

I have tried to buy ammo before 0700 at mine and it was a no-go.

My Local WM is a 6am to midnight store. I have bought ammo at all times of the day/night(assuming they actually have it). It can be tough to find someone w/ the ammo key before 7am. Need to have a "manager" paged.

ETA: I just started using this App. It has been saying OOS on everything(that's how the shelves look too when I stop by) until last night, when it said limited stock on a few things. Unfortunately, I couldn't get over there this AM to see if the ammo was actually in stock.

Whatever happened to merely walking into the store and going to the ammo counter and picking out one's ammo? Oh, yeah, we elected a Kenyan into the White House.

He's the best thing ever happened to the gun and ammo industry, in the United States history (being honest), even better than Tiger Woods was to golf.

My area's Walmart gets trucks in everyday, but ammo comes only on some days. They unload the truck that evening, anywhere 6-8pm and put them on shelves. Ammo are sold within 10 mins from being carted out TO THE FLOOR !!!

Unless I choose to spend a couple of hours loitering there every night, I can't compete....

I reload...

Get to know the guys in your local gun clubs. They'd know where to get stuffs, or even group buys.

Are you aware that the Old Man in the Mountain face collapsed several years ago?

Yes. I think it was spring time when the soften support gave way. Still got the pics to show the kids... that it was there (and I was there. LOL) There's an Indian head formation just south of that... though it takes some imagination to see it.
