    Carded at Wally World buying ammo

    I just bought a 250 round box of 9mm the other day at WalMart. The clerk asked me for some identification. A little puzzled, I asked him why he needed it. He said he had to verify my age and address. I said I never had to do that before. He apologetically pointed to a sign on top of the ammo case stating the law. Does anybody know what this is about?

    If this has been discussed, I apologize. Haven't been on the forum for awhile.

    That may be a State law issue.

    Making sure you're old enough to buy pistol ammo. No biggie, pretty standard any more. Over 18 for rifle and over 21 for pistol. That's why they sometimes ask if it's for pistol or rifle.

    Say thank you ATF.

    Yeah that. But I've never had them inquire about my address. If they needed my address, I'd find somewhere else to buy ammo.

    I was carded a couple of weeks ago when I bought some 9mm and .40 ammo at Walmart. I mentioned to the cashier I had not been asked for an I.D. in the past and she told me it was a new rule to ask everyone. Believe me...there's no mistaking I'm old enough to buy ammo.

    I resemble that also although I have been at Wal-Marts in other states where they actually input my birth date.

    Be lucky that's all you have to do for Walmart. Try being a big time vendor for them in the food arena. I'm just a truck driver and I have to do stuff because of Walmart. It does not matter how crazy the rule is. They make it, people jump. Kinda crazy.

    I'm well past AARP membership eligibility, and on Saturday I was carded when I bought a beer at the Denver Airport. Last time I showed ID to purchase any sort of alcohol I was in college!

    Here in my city, it's being applied haphazardly. Sometimes I've been asked to show ID, and more often not. It's not a uniform policy, or at least the staff aren't applying it consistently.

    I'm not sure where the State of Guns and Religion is, MP45, but here in PA I was going through the line with some 9mm ammo and the cashier paused, looked at me, then pressed a key on his register. I caught the display just in time to see it saying something about verifying age. It was my first time buying at wally world (and not the LGS) and caught me buy surprise, as I certainly don't look 18, 21 or whatever you need to be. No address verification though.

    They (sales clerk) went as far as to ask for my CCW permit....WalMart rule.....I told him that it wasn't required and that most rifle ammo could be shot in pistolsl anyway.....they aren't up on things.....

    I have been carded at my local Wal Mart. Age verification isnt a huge deal to me. I guess if checking someones ID will stop one BG from committing a crime or one kid from buying ammo for his dads gun that wasnt secure then its worth it.

    Agreed...

    But, the age verification is as far as I care to go with it.... My address is none of their darn business.
