    Buying ammo online question

    My local walmart has been giving me trouble picking up ammo in 9mm and I try explaining its for my carbine (which I actually do have, no BS about that) but according to their store policies I cant buy it since I'm a few months from 21. Bummer. Well anyways I went to the range today with what I had left and a guy there told me that I can buy handgun ammo online and they ship it to my door no problem. My question is will they give me hell at my door were I to buy ammo online for not being 21 (assuming they ask for ID at the door)? Or will they just let it ride and not care? I dont want to place a shipment if it will end up being a hassle basically. I live in Fl if that helps with laws and what not.

    Thanks in advance

    Dude, buy ammo online!!!!!!! 'ORMD' is the best sticker on any box you will ever get! (including better than on the box of Ms. sweet Suzie Pants!)

    The 'person' working for a living to deliver it to you will drop it on your stoop, ring the door bell and leave. I usually wait until they are back at the truck and yell "Thank You". Since they come often to my humble abode, they expect that.

    Now, did you ask this question seriously? Or are you just pullin our legs? If the latter, I have some Relative Bearing Grease I'd like to introduce you to.

    All of the ammo I have ordered on line is delivered as Anglico above stated. They ring doorbell drop package and leave without waiting for you to answer door.

    Are you asking us how to circumvent laws or the policies that sellers put in place to keep them out of trouble with the law?

    My advice? Wait a few months.

    One is allowed to own long guns and buy ammunition for them at 18. I am pretty certain that this is a federal regulation. Many people have rifles chambered for the same rounds as pistols. One reason I can think of for doing so is if your local range, like mine, doesn't allow rifle (goose necked) rounds. This subject has come up before in other varieties: e.g. why does Walmart ask if this is for a handgun?

    It is a Walmart step in the buying process. They will even ask old farts if it is for a handgun or not. Sometimes a clerk who doesn't know anything about ammo will ask if an obvious rifle round (i.e., 30.06) is for a handgun.

    They have a step built into the electronic register they have to complete.

    I don't know the law precisely but I do know they (retailers) wont sell handgun ammo to anybody under 21; 9mm is not usually for a long gun.

    But then again I am sure you can purchase .410 shells and they can be used in "the judge".

    I can see the dilemma.

    I'd be very careful dispensing advice to someone who states up front that there might be a legal issue with what he's trying to do.

    If Wal-Mart is throwing you, you might look for a different location, perhaps a LGS that wouldn't mind you brining the carbine in to prove the ammo purchase is for that. Buying online just to get around any sort of legal obstacle is risky business, and risky advice.

    I order a lot of online ammo and most of the time my favorite dealer has on their site "Adult Signature Required" which makes no difference to me. I guess some just drop and leave.

    Possessing handgun ammo 18-21 is okay.

    I have seen elsewhere as long as you tell them it is for a rifle you should be okay, but doesn't mean you won't run into a salesman that is overly cautious.

    My son gets carded at WalMart but he's still 21. They're just doing their job and they know .38 rounds don't go in no stinkin' rifle.

    .38 rounds ARE for a rifle:
