    Any allocated ammo will come from Walmart corporate.

    Hmmm? So who is deciding who gets what when it becomes available?

    The commies, it's always the commies.


    All kidding aside that is a crazy thing to think about, why do they leave it up to people who are probably never in that store to decide when they get to sell ammo.

    But seriously, it's probably the commies

    Walmart Ammo Policies

    My mother in law is a co-manager at one, and they limit 3 boxes, per caliber, per person.

    CORRECT. Iv been trying to explain this on this forum. I am an Ap for store 2255, this is the fact. End of story. For example our store just got in a good amount of ammo and it's priced fair, we just don't know what is coming or when, but the stores still sell ammo, the company has not stopped selling it.

    Many retailers operate this way. I used to work part time at a Galyan's store and all buying decisions were made by the corporate office, with the individual store not having any say, although corporate did take into account what was selling the most at each store. Of course I know this is different since ammo is selling out at just about every WM. This sounds almost like rationing. I don't know if it's because ammo is getting scarce and harder to find, even for big retailers like Walmart, or if they are trying to limit the amount of ammo they sell.

    Much easier to track usage if it all comes from one order source! Big Brother met with Walmart recently!

    Went to the local Walmart yesterday. The ammo cabinet was empty except for a few boxes of .45 colt and shotgun shells. I got down on the floor and way in the back I saw two boxes, so I asked the salesman to show me what they were. He acted surprised that they were there. It turned out they were value packs of .38 special. 2 boxes of 100 rnds. each. I've given them a better home.

    GunGeezer, that was really kind of you to give that ammo a better home! Congrats on being such a good samaritan.

    I will no longer support Walmart or Samsclub stores. This is totally ridiculous. Personally I would rather shop at Target, I think they have better sales and products, and I also don't need to goto a store like that for ammunition. I'd rather buy through local smaller stores and support some small business. Even when I'm getting tools or powertools I goto the local Ace Hardware store which SELLS AMMO!!! and give them my business because they're just a franchise owned by a really nice couple. The employees know me by name and the atmosphere is like an old store with the antique hardwood floors and what not. The COMMIE-mart policy does NOT surprise me at all.

    How do we interpret this? Walmart responds to ?suspended ammo? story

    Our walmart, just put up a sign yesterday. 3 boxes of ammo per person per day.
    Some of our customers, like to come in and buy everything in the ammo case. these are the people you should get angry about.
    It's not walmarts fault the shelves are bare. It's thoughs that think they are the only one's that should get it. (ALL OF IT)
    And I do think 3 boxes is fair, so your brothers have some also.
