    I go to my neighborhood Walmart today to buy Hotwheels and ammo and of course, as usual.......NO AMMO! :steamed:

    I'm talking to the manager, on duty, about why there hasn't been any 9mm ammo for quite some time now and he says the moment it comes in, it gets bought up right away? No surprise there but what surprised me even more is that he said the local police dept calls in and asks if there is any ammo! The manager said, that the gunshops prices on ammo is too high, so the police officers buy at WM!

    So when there is ammo, they send some officers over to buy it all up! :faint

    Is this surprising to some of you or just me?

    You are really going to probably dislike me for saying this...but I picked up two 100 round WWB of 9MM today at one of my local Wal-Marts. :embarassed: There were still around 10 more on the shelf along with the 50 rd boxes of WWB, Remington UMC, and the expensive orange and black boxes all in 9MM as well.

    The other store close by usually has just as much too. I hope you luck out on your next trip! :wavey:

    I stalk the sporting goods counter there regularly-- my local one usually gets in 3-4 boxes of Federal .40 S&W 180gr... I generally buy 3-4 boxes :supergrin:

    That sucks.

    Where I live WM only sells shotgun ammo. It is weird because the Cleveland stores sell handgun ammo, but the WMs south of Akron, in a more country/township area don't. Very displeasing. I hate the Wal-Mart.

    I was at a walmart early one morning and the Scottsdale gun club had employes in line waiting to buy all the ammo when it hit the shelves. They take it and resell it at a higher price!

    My WM's lately have had 5-10 100 rd. boxes of WWB 9mm.

    Just last week the price increased from $19.97 to $23.97 in on jump! That's a 20% increase overnight. Dang!

    I haven't been buying at that price yet. I still have a pretty good stock of the same stuff I paid $18 for. I also have a few 50 rd. boxes of Blazer Brass I only paid $7 for. When that all runs out I'll just cry a little bit. :crying:
