    Late night bargains!

    Well its Friday night and about 10:30 or so the wife says lets go shopping, so off we go to Wal-Mart. As soon as we get there I head to the sporting goods area with wife in tow. Darn no ammo in the cases except some 30-06 and 270 . Just then a pallet is carted to the area and a nice lady asks if we need anything? Well I don't suppose you have any ammo do you? Well let me check the pallet sir? About this time my wife is getting antsy and wants to leave so she can shop. Less than a minute later the clerk says all I have are 9mm? I look and its Winchester white box FMJ 100rd value pack...Yes!! I ask her if my wife can also get 3 boxes as that's the max you can buy each day. Sure she says, but your wife has to get them, I tell her to hold 6 boxes and I'll find her and be right back! Found wife and we left with 600 rds. !! Each box was less than 25.00, I like shopping at night!

    Grats. Nice haul. I haven't seen 9mm in Walmart since last fall. If things don't turn around soon I will have to curtail training either late summer or fall. Not looking forward to that.

    You didn't hang around until midnight so it would be another day and you could have left with 1,200 rounds? Tsk, tsk...

    I just left Wally World and the shelves were bare the guy working sporting goods said the best time to look for ammo is after 7pm and they get trucks in everyday.Whats on them is a bit of a crapshoot. Trucks show up around 4:30pm

    Congrats. Our local Wally's won't sell ammo from 10pm to 6am. At 6 am there's usually a line. I work 2nd shift so I don't get a lot of sleep.

    The guy at the gun desk at ours said they don't stock it in the night. They keep it separate and put in the shelf at 7am. I don't know which days. I got lucky and picked up a couple boxes of tulammo for 11.95 each one day but usually the shelves are bare.

    Great find!

    I think ammo is coming back. Albeit slowly, I'm seeing some more, mostly .45 & .40... But, even that was as rare as hen's teeth just a few weeks ago.

    Mfgs are running full bore.. (not so clever pun, UN intended). Still no .22 but it will come.

    Patience, grasshoppers.

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

    I have been told the same thing and have seen it to be accurate. The downside is that you have to go to Walmart (at all) after dark...

    Problem is those guys have been selling the ammo as fast as they list it! I told myself I wont support them, let someone else pay those prices. As much as it hurts to say it I'd rather not shoot if I have to pay the prices they charge.

    Man when I asked the lady at counter at Walmart if she had any 9mm she just laughed at me. Weirdly enough now there's a midget that mans the gun counter.

    Virtually all WalMart ammo must stop at the Mississippi river. Nothing west of there gets ANY ! That's plain old-fashioned Communism! Someday soon the mighty leviathans shall rise up and rid the world of the demon WalMarts. I have to go take my meds now. Have a happy day.
