    Merry Christmas Wal-Mart

    Wal-Mart has always done good by me when it comes to competitive prices on ammo. With all the gun ban talk lately, I was very surprised to walk into my local Wal-Mart and come across two of these. $164ea, so I decided to walk with both.

    It was tucked away in the glass case of ammo. I could only see the side of it to catch my attention. Called the clerk over to get info and she opened up the case for a closer look. Then I noticed the other can behind it.

    I asked her if there was more available and she said no that it just came with only the two. She said I was very lucky since they don't get many of them and they disappear right away. I agreed as I handed her cash.

    Nice find. Even if you didn't own a gun in that caliber, they'd be worth their weight in gold before long.

    Congrats, our Va wm's never carried this, so I had to travel to WV to buy these. I have 3wm's in 15 miles of me South, West, and North so the "travel" to WV was just going home a different route a few times.

    Unless you plan to shoot i or need it for your own supply, that may turn into one heck of a return on your investment down the road...

    Nice score!
    It's rare but when I find those at Walmart I always pick them up.

    This purchased encouraged me to contact the two other WMs that are within 15min of me. They do not carry the item as a stock item. It would be interesting to see the metric WM uses for determining what stores carry which product. Not just now, but over the last year at least, I would expect this item be hard to keep in store due to low supply and high demand.

    the Walmart nearest my house doesn't carry jack. They don't sell guns and the only ammo you can find there reliably is pistol ammo.

    40 cents a round was a decent price even before the ugly event in Newtown.

    Nice find! I've never seen them at the local Walmart. And now, I doubt if I ever will!

    Wow! I consider myself blessed if my local WM has the ammo box with 1,600 rds of CCI MiniMag .22LR on sale for $98.00 plus tax once or twice per year.
