    I just called (15:00 CST, 1/14) and was also told that "No decision has been made", and to monitor the corporate site "news" link for more information.

    And you know that how? As Suntzu, just the facts. So far they seem absent from this thread. I might really need to
    go talk to my nice WM ammo man to find out what's going on.

    So the second url is supposedly WM's statement that the story is not true, but it
    as the other side of the story is also third hand.
    Someone wrote and someone said.

    Is there a press release from WM on this anywhere?

    You can do whatever you want but the reason your LGS, that most likely supports 2a much more than the Waltons, charges more and cant keep up with demand is that walmart get first shipment and the best prices, and the rest are stuck with what's left. If walmart stopped selling ammo 9 years ago youd find better prices at the little guys store

    There are press releases and there is reality. I went to the store and asked the guy who normally orders ammo. He told me that they were told by headquarters to not order any ammo for now. That is all I know...but it does seem to be reality.

    So no one finds it odd that WalMart meets with Obama to discuss gun control, then quits selling ammo a couple of days later??

    Wal Mart, IMO, is nothing more than a major vendor for Chinese produced junk.

    Lets see, I am boycotting:
    Wal Mart
    Dick's
    Cheaper than Dirt
    Hornady Ammo
    All businesses that have "No Guns" signs posted

    Are there others that I should boycott?
    Bank of America for freezing accounts of a gun manufacturer and also BB&T because all of their locations are posted nationwide. And just about every hospital known to man. And all restaurants that serve alcohol in NC (state law issue). That leaves Publix Super Markets, Dollar General, and most fast food restaurants available.

    I'm tired of being outraged at stuff. If gun owners boycotted every store that somehow "offended" them we would hardly have anywhere to shop. I love to support LGS's when I can, but you know what? Life happens.

    Called a good friend who is a manager at Walmart here just a minute ago. He told me that they cannot order more. The orders are immediately denied in the computer because there is no stock to order from at this time. The system was overloaded with stores constantly requesting more ammo so they cut it off completely for now. As far as he knows, ammo will come in as a distributed product not an ordered product. He says they have some items (traditionally ammo falls here) that the department must order as needed because they don't want to send too much of a product that sits and it's up to the department manager to keep track of what is needed. Other products are shipped regularly according to the inventory system. Items like Toys for example are shipped all the time (about twice a week) from the warehouse and you receive product according to what you are selling (every store is different).

    This corroborates the post over at M4carbine.net that business is as usual

    Maybe if your LGS bought a million rounds at a time, they'd get a price break too.

    Actually I think I'm back to undecided on BoA. I've done a lot of research on these claims and honestly, I'm not sold that BoA was doing anything out of the ordinary.

    First off, on this second incident they didn't freeze accounts, they froze deposits. They did this because of the huge uptick this company had in deposits. They do have some responsibility to investigate and make sure that there is nothing "wrong" is going on. Fraud, like it or not, is a huge issue for the banking industry and they sometimes have to limit their liability by making sure transactions are legitimate. I'm not going to make any judgements on what someone said someone else said on the phone because that's just too unreliable, and since that someone probably doesn't dictate policy, it's potentially inaccurate as well.

    I'm not saying they are, or are not, anti-2A. I'm just suggesting that I have yet to be convinced either way.

    That's my point. But if more people stopped buying at wal mart they'd have to give locals a break. Clearly they are spineless, compared to the small guys that are pretty hardcore 2A supporters.

    That's what I felt on this too when I read it. They have to watch out for their bottom line. If they get a bunch of bad deposits and they accept them, they are out whatever amount they accepted.
