    Wally World and ammo limits

    I stopped by my local WW tonight like I do every day looking for 9mm ammo and low and behold they had some . I start to drool and am counting the boxes and figuring how much it is going to cost me and that's when I seen it . They now have a sign up stating that due to the high demand of ammo that they are limiting customers to 3 boxes of ammo per day. Well if this isn't a slap to the . I find a sales associate and let him know that I want to grab some boxes of ammo, all good, he breaks out the keys opens the case and grabs me 3 boxes of ammo. As he rings me up I look at the time on my cell to see if I still had time to hit the gym and it says 11:55pm and a little light goes off in my head. He asks if I need anything else and I say with a smile not at this minute but in two minutes I will need you again. He looks at me with a puzzled look on his face and say Ooooookay. Now it's 12:01 and that means Thursday is over and now it's Friday . I look at him and say, I would like to get 3 more boxes of ammo and he gets this grin on his face and says ohhhh your good. I got 6 boxes of ammo within 10 minutes and was on my way. Take that Wally World, I beat you at your own game .

    Got that in Washington too. It's store by store. My local one doesn't care, but others in the area have six boxes a day per customer

    I'm all for that, before some of the local shooting establishments were buying everything and then reselling it in their own biz at about double. At least the everyday guy gets a chance to get a few boxes now.

    Nice. Very well played OP
    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    I get that, but it is bs to do that. Find a wholesale dealer online. I know a few whole sell to ranges, so that's unnecessary

    Well, you STILL only get 3 boxes per day, so at the end of the week you still have the same amount. All you did was do it in half the trips.

    No worries at my local Walmart, which seldom has one box of what I am looking for, let alone more than three.

    Wally World and ammo limits

    I'd be thrilled if my Walmart had ANY ammo in stock, even if I could only get 3 boxes....

    My local Wally had a 6 box limit, but it has been lowered to 3 lately. I stopped in yesterday to pick up some 30-06 and saw the new limit. The guy would only let me have 1 box of 30-06 and 2 boxes of .22lr. I figured the hunting ammo wasn't in demand since they had plenty of it. I did get a box of 12ga and he said that didn't apply to the 3 box limit. It's a pain when you're wanting to pick up ammo for several guns, but I guess it's good that more people get a chance at getting some. A Wally 30 min away got some .223 in a couple days ago and it was $8 per box. It didn't last long.

    I could be in luck since my wife goes to W-M at least 3 or 4 times a week. Need to give her the end flap from several ammo boxes to tape on her shopping list so she knows what to look for.

    Last time I was at WW the only thing they had was rifle ammo and a few boxes if birdshot shotgun shells. Might have to check again.

    My Wal-Mart has been wiped out.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    Ran into the same thing at the walmart here yesterday. Was not much left here to choose from but did get 3 boxes of .45's.
    Just glad to see they had something on the shelves!

    Here is the sign at my local Walmart
    Walmart ammo.jpg

    The local Walmart here is also creating a database of gun owners...they are asking for I.D. so they can enter your personal information into their system so they can monitor who bought what type and quantity of ammo and when you bought it.

    My family will never shop at Walmart again.
