    I was in Walmart today picked up a couple of boxes of .45 no big deal. They did have to call a manager over to unlock the ammo case he then rang up my purchase just like any other.

    He did give me little bit of a hard time, just joking about my other items, but he was a nice guy didn't even ask for ID or ask if it was for a handgun. Just a good buying experience just like it should.

    they did have a sign limiting to three boxes so all customers could have a chance to get some but I don't think he would have pushed it.

    There is none in the three walmarts we have. At least when I go..

    I did go to Gander at opening last Tuesday, and they had a bunch. For about 5 minutes. The line waiting for the store to open was like black friday.

    I was able to get a case of 9mm from freedommunitions two weeks ago. Got it in last week. I got an email today that it was back in stock. I was on the website within 60 seconds of getting the email and it already showed out of stock... :upeyes:

    Oh well. I'm not hurting for ammo but any means. I won't pay the gouger prices, so I'll just keep waiting. :supergrin:

    I am surprised you found any at all. My Walmart has had a combined 8 boxes of 12gauge shot over my past 3 trips. Other than that, the shelf was empty.

    Got to my local Walmart at 730 on Sunday and the sporting goods employees were just stocking from a pallet. Had two cases each of 45 and 9. No 22, some 5.56, 7.62x39 and a lot of shotgun ammo. I bought 3 boxes of .45. There were four others there waiting for the unloading of the ammo.

    Got in 10 guns today at local WM. One 6920, two 10/22s and a mix of 7 rifles and shotguns. Also .223 and 9mm along with some 7.62x39mm ammo. Not a bad day.

    Congratulations on your ammunition purchase. My sense is that in many/most Walmarts whatever handgun ammunition they get in sells very quickly.

    I lucked out and found some .308 ammo at Walmart last Thursday. Guy behind the counter said that 25 boxes were stocked on the shelf for less than 45 minutes. I bought the last 3 boxes. Not the ideal .308 ammo I was looking for, but good enough to sight in my new scope.

    Could be worse I guess. Would be great I think if it weren't for shipping.
