    Mine always had a good ammo selection and they are now selling long guns. Does anyone besides me feel stupid when you purchase a gun and they carry it out side for you all the while your concealed carry piece is on you. You even use the concealed carry card to make the paperwork faster. What a bunch of maroons.

    I've read thru most of the thread and haven't seen what I'm about to say, if its here forgive me. There are 4 Supercenters and 1 regular Walmart here, and another 3-4 supercenters w/in 45 minutes and they all are very different in what they stock. Walmart gives the store management a lot of say as to what the store stocks, and if the manager feels that ammo doesn't sell well in the area the store is in then they have the authority to not carry inventory that doesn't, in their opinion, move quickly enough. The Walmart closest to me has a sporting goods dept that is laughable, but the one 30 minutes away looks like a Cabelas/Bass Pro Shop took over theirs.

    No in my area. I just bought 4 boxes of American Eagle 147 grain 9mm last Wednesday before I went to the range... great price.

    There is only one Archery shop in my area and the guy makes a killing selling stuff at fairly high prices, so finally after plaguing the Walmart manager with requests for more archery equipment we finally have an 'ok' selection and a second buying option. So yes, I think the managers have quite a bit of say.

    I love my country so I don't shop at Walmart. I don't care how cheap the ammo is, I would rather support my local gun shop and my local range then support the job destroying and America hating company called Walmart.
    I hate buying from WM as much as many, but if I'm buying ammo, I really have no other local option. If I don't buy it from WM, I have to drive 60 miles one way and deal w/ WM, Dick's, Academy, Bass Pro Shop and a few number of LGS who's ammo is much to expensive. I've not bought much ammo online because the shipping usually ends up making it more expensive than WM. I need to check out the earlier Palmetto link.

    So you're buying top quality at the best price and maximizing your personal economy - one in the aggregate, global economy of which we are all a part. And the problem is? Best quality and price wins in my book. My problem is that LA County WM's don't sell ammo.

    Here in Dutchess County NY, our WM sells ammo. However, for the first time in a long while the shelves were almost completely empty. This hasn't happened for as far back as I can remember. They can't keep stock on shelves; getting bought up quickly. Guess the panic buying in an election year is in full swing again.

    In short, I find shopping at WM a very frustrating adventure at best. I like the idea of helping the local economy by shopping at local businesses, but that's not an option for me when buying ammo. To bad your local WM in CA doesn't sell ammo. At all the WM's I've visited in LA (Louisiana) do sell ammo.

    Our local Walmart added some new boxes of calibers/brands in the last couple of weeks and also added a bunch of good, name-brand firearm accessories. Stuff like Blackhawk!, Ruger, and a few others. It looked to me like they are taking a stance in favor of the shooting hobby.

    My point is: helping my personal economy is as local as it gets and as beneficial.

    There are 2 Walmarts in the city I live in, and they both are upgrades (new stores) from older stores that were closed.

    When the 2 new stores opened about 4 years ago:

    Store 1 sold a fair amount of guns and ammo, and has now expanded to sell even more.
    Store 2 didn't sell guns, just ammo, but has now expanded to sell many guns and more ammo.

    About 10 years ago, the one Kmart in town really tanked in sales and responded by getting rid of guns and most ammo. They still sell BBguns and barely any ammo. I would say a huge amount of their customers were hunters, and snubbing their nose at hunters made a bad store much worse. In this state, about 85% of the people shut their doors during deer season and are out hunting. A business is smart to sell to hunters, and incredibly dumb to stop selling that type of gear.

    Exactly! The last gun I bought at Walmart was a shotgun. It was in a box, disassembled, with the parts wrapped up. It would take several minutes for the gun to be ready to fire, but they escorted me out of the store with the sealed box.

    Meanwhile, you can buy ANY knife in Walmart, that is 100% ready to go, and nobody cares one bit! Total lack of logic there.

    [QUOTE=oakchas;2321862]If... and I say IF, Wal Mart is slowly phasing out ammo... BE AFRAID be VERY AFRAID!

    East Tennessee checkin' in...nobody's stopped selling ammo - but many have stopped selling, or at least stocking guns of any kind. That said: with the visible growth in new shooters and ccw holders, it would be for no economic reason that so many have stopped...seems that the one's reportedly not selling ammo are somewhere not in either the southeast or southwest. I'm sure there is pressure from local governments on up who would love to see prominent retailers shut off supply to the citizenry. That way there would be no nasty voter backlash while getting what the political weasels want.
