    Do You Register Ammunition

    From reading this thread "BAD: MD State Police go Ninja on Ammo Purchases" I got the impression that some states register ammunition that you have to sign something when you buy it. That is a gun control issue that I never thought of as in Washington you give the clerk money and they give you ammo like buying a candy bar. So I thought I would ask if that is required in your state and if you see that as a problem or not.

    Edited to add: Please let us know what state you are in so we can get a picture of how many and which states require this

    Cash and carry here in Virginia. I don't really understand that thread??

    I bought some ammo in Walmart across the Virginia line and it was cash and carry. No ID, nothing!

    Confirmed.... I buy very little ammo, I do mostly reloads.

    I said "NO," but there is another in-between that you missed: Here in Texas, you do have to show ID and sign that you are over 21 to buy handgun ammo, and if you buy .22LR they ask if it is for a handgun. Rifle and shotgun ammo, sometimes they'll ask for ID to check age/state residence. (Although I of course do own .22 handguns, I've somehow never bought any ammo for them )
    Minor, not even really an inconvenience, but still unnecessary IM(not so)HO .

    Stay safe,

    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
    Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!

    Not in CT, but I'm sure you got to be 21 to buy handgun ammo.

    In NY (State), you can buy ammo with no ID, but most stores ask to see your CCW if you buy handgun ammo.

    Of course, there is some ammo that is dual purpose, like .22, but all the obvious handgun calibers are behind the counter at most places.

    To be clear, you do have to sign for ammo, they don't just check your ID. They end up with a piece of paper with your signature saying you bought x number bullets of x caliber? Isn't that de facto registration? Even if they do call it something else they have a record that you bought a given quantity of ammo for a specific caliber of gun. Which can be entered into a state or federal data base with your name on it

    But no signature or paper work with your name on it saying you bought that ammo.

    I generally buy mine at the gunshows, in bulk, and they don't check or record anything. That's not why; it's just usually cheaper. WalMart checks more than anyone, and that increased when they quit selling guns.
    One WalMart store here (in Austin) even has all their ammo hidden under the counter, with no lists or prices posted. I asked the manager why they were trying to hide the ammo and he just said, "Yes, we're keeping it put away." So I told him that "If they are ashamed to aknowlege the Second Ammendment, I'm ashamed to shop here. There are other stores."
    He just looked at me, as I walked off.

    Stay safe,

    Even CA, no ID asked for, but there may be an age limit, that part does not apply to me.
