It's been awhile since I've seen anything but bare shelves and bolt action rifles at Wal Mart, so imagine my surprise when I stopped by sporting goods today and things had changed. Colt and Sig .223/5.56 AR's, lots of 9mm fmj, .223 & 5.56, and lots of other calibers on hand. No .22 of any kind, and the guy ahead of me bought the last three boxes of .45 :(. Was glad to see things improving!

Did you happen to notice the price on the Colt ARs? (assuming they were 6920s)
Just wondering if they took a jump (big or otherwise) with the high demand out there.

I saw 223 and 45 still on the shelf at 8pm at my local Wallmart. I thought about buying it and trading with my brother in law for 9mm. However, I figured I would leave it for the next guy and make his day. I still have not found 9mm or 22 lr. I did pick up 300 rds of 9mm at a major sporting good store today and it was not at the crack of dawn. It was in the middle of the day. It's starting to get better

Definitely getting better here as well - 9mm, .45, and .223 are available in the morning from time to time. They used to be completely gone by midnight. But I still can't find bulk .22LR anywhere. Whodathunk I'd ever run out of that?

Our Wally-Worlds have: .30-06, .300 WinMag, 7mm Mag, .270, and bird shot. Nothing for handguns or popular 'sporting rifle' calibers. I hear rumors that they actually do get some from time to time, but sell out within minutes. Fortunately, my LGS has started to get a little ammo in the last week or so.

Does anyone else find it as disturbing as I do that even the largest retailer in the world can't get a decent supply of ammunition?

All we got is 12 ga game loads and some 20 ga "gun club" nothing for rifle or handgun. But there is lots of it.

My guess is, they get a 'decent' supply, but have to spread it out over Lord knows how many stores. Whether or not they pick and choose which stores or regions get more ammo than others, I don't know. Good question though.
