Local Walmart is getting ammo; but, not weapons. They said, a man purchased a least 3K worth of ammo after the truck delivery. Some folks are waiting and when the ammo comes in, they are on the phone immediately.

Another Walmart down the street got 3 AR's and they were sold within placement in the case.

Not alot of square footage taken up to be 50% of the depts sales.
I've been to two in Jax and heard the exact opposite. They were told not to order extra because like everyone else supplies are low. However the manager told me they are still getting ammo and guns.

I was at the Walmart in Eldorado, ks and there was a line waiting on the truck to unload. The guy working said there was ammo on the truck but I was not going to stick around when I was not even close to the front of the line. They are still ordering ammo it is just they can only get so much at a time. I think the guy working back there called his buddies when the truck arrived. So if you don't have a inside person at Walmart you probably won't get any
