    I have lived in NY for about 5 years and have never been asked for my ID or permit when buying ammo. But I go to the same place all the time and they kind of know me.

    Could have been just checking your age.

    Maybe with all the hoarding going on the guy was just trying to sell only to "legit" people. Not condoning it, just a thought.

    I was at Gun store in Buffalo NY a few years back. I was buying ammo and there was a sign ID needed for ammo purchase. I said to the Guy about the ID, He said that is only for the Scumbags that try to but ammo, He said You don't look like a scumbag don't worry about it.

    This could very well be the case. The hoarding has gotten silly, and I am quite sure some of the hoarders are speculators who may not even be shooters themselves. I would rather see a dealer ask for a carry permit or LE ID than arbitrarily limit everyone to two boxes of ammo, as some seem to do. While a carry permit or LE ID does not mean one is not a speculator, it does at least indicate one has a need for the ammo, and not just a desire to profit.

    I get carded every time. Never been asked for a carry permit, but they do ask for my ID every time.

    I've been told that I look young, and they usually ask how old I am... I tell them that I'm 18 with 7 years experience.

    Sometimes my sense of humor is a little too subtle for some people though, in that case I just pull out the ID and let them see that I'm 25. Although, one time at wally world, the clerk asked for another form of ID because I didn't look enough like the picture on my driver's license? I guess I look THAT much different when I shave and wear a hat? All I was buying was a tube of super glue! I didn't even know that stuff called for an ID.

    You guys are funny, Showing your permit to buy ammo is the way of life in Mass.
    No LTC or FIC no ammo, can't even put your paws on a box, it's all behind the counter even the shotgun ammo! Any one want to move to Mass?

    No kidding, and you are in NY too.

    So this must be a new NY thing? I did not hear or read this was coming.

    What? This is moronic.

    First off I don't look like a scumbag at all. And I was dressed nice since I had just returned from a job where I was fixing some corporate executive's laptop. Also there was no such sign in the store.

    Well I guess it is a way of life in NY now too. I only brought it up because it has never happened before so I wanted to see if it was new thing.

    Yes I'm in Montgomery County NY. I was also told WW in my area was going to discontinue ammo sales, they have already been cutting way back on other hunting supplies. Supposedly due to a lack of sales but I don't believe it.

    Lack of sales? I agree that seems hard to believe with the supposed ammo shortage. I personally have not been stockpiling, I just buy a box here and there so when I've needed it I've usually found it.

    But I don't often go to Wally Mart because I hate that place and don't usually shop there at all.

    Only once I stopped by a Sports Authority which carried ammo that I never heard of I asked the clerk to see the box and he asked If I have a permit ? Yes I do would you like to see it? He handed me the box and said nope. Looked it over was not impressed with ammo or price and handed it back and thanked him.
    I have been asked to see my permit when I asked to see a firearm from the sales counter. Clerk gave a quick glance and handed me what I ask for.
