I'm suprised my walmart still has the occasional 100 pack of .45 auto UMC for around 35.00

I would hope that he gets some familiarization and training with the thing. People like that can be dangerous with a weapon.

I was buying all my CCI .22 Mini-Mags there at Wallyworld because my .22 pistol is real finneky with ammo and just jams with almost anything elce. They seem to sell it as fast as they get it lately. I need to get a good .22 revolver I guess. Their gun rack is half empty all the time also.

My last trip to Wally World last week was like this:

Guy in front of me: Do you have any .380?

Clerk sitting on stool: You mean .38 special?

Guy: No, I mean .380.

Clerk: Oh, you mean .380 ACP. No we have no pistol ammo.

The guy left, so it was my turn. I saw 2 100 rd boxes of Mini-Mags.

Me: I would like to get the .22lr Mini-Mags boxes you have there.

Clerk (still sittin on his arse): You did not hear that we have no pistol ammo?

Me: I don't have a .22 pistol. (then I shut up and waited)

Clerk (looking around under the counter): I don't see what you are talking about.

Me: CCI .22lr mini-mags you have in front of you.

Clerk: um...um (shaking head)

Me: Clear plastic rectangles with blue sticker and little bullets.

Clerk: Oh, yeah...here you go.

Me: I want both boxes please.

I got them for $6.27 or something each. They were the hp not rn too.

It is getting to be an adventure these days.

You should jump on that bargain every chance you get. What a deal!

at least you guys can find ammo. I would deal with dumarses all day long if i could just find some ammo for sale. Walmart's here in central Illinois have stopped getting shipments of ammo, and when you ask the inept employees when they will get more they just stare at you with a mouth breather look. I have to drive 20 miles to a "quality" gun shop just to pay 20 dollars a box for speer lawman 45 for practice. They have a few different kinds of ammo for carry so i guess its not too bad of a place.

My WalleyWorld is still always out of 45ACP every time i go. I'm at the point of trying to bribe one of the employees with some free clearisil or something. At least i now have enough 762 to feel comfortable about plinking off a dozen boxes; doesn't take much for me, just wanna have 1000 rounds for emergencies.

My walmart is decent about ammo. Although, all I look for is shotgun and 22LR. They usually have some pistol/rifle ammo, but its more shotgun than anything.

S.S.

Gojubrian, your story made me laugh- thanks.

Could you imagine this guy in a gun fight-
"AHHH, TIME-OUT, Hold-On....my .45 Colt ammo doesn't fit the mag of my
.45Auto pistol!!"
Well it goes to prove that some people...you just can't help.

Ar you sure the Winchesters are 500 rds.? The ones I used to see here were some new gimmick called Winchester 333's. I bought a "brick" thinking they were something new...what they were was a box of 333 standard Winchester .22's at the same price they used to charge for 500! The Federals I normally buy are 550 rds.,
but alas, WalMart has had neither for quite some time.

i am far past asking the inept clerks. i point to the box and say "yeah, the one all the way on the top left, the one that says dynapoint, yup the little white box." and yes there are people who have no clue what they're putting into their gun. now, when you see a clerk whos never shot a gun try to serve someone who has no clue its priceless. my wal mart guy says the big boxes of .22 (the 550 packs) are all gone before noon. o well, at least they have a good sized stock of 12 gauge. they don't have a lot of quality ammo like winchester AAs but the winchester 100 round universal packs do just fine for me.
