Check your state laws. There are laws on the books in some states that prohibit this behavior. Your guy isn't the first to do this, and you are certainly not the first to complain about it. I know that some of these laws were placed on the books because people were buying out batteries, chainsaws, etc, then selling them at a higher price whenever a hurricane hit.

The Second Amendment, Free Market, and Capitalism...all things we should fight to protect.

If you want the cheap Walmart ammo prices, you need to get there when the inventory arrives. Typically, the more a store sells, the more they get, so I don't see how this local gun store is going to corner the market with a few wally world purchases.

You never know that could be his top selling ammo and not wanting to loose customers he would take the hit on his margin for a few boxes until his shipment comes in. I would rather have product on my shelves and have happy customers than make a few extra bucks.

I suppose that is why the local Wally'sworld has had a three box limit for a while. I wouldn't buy squat from duder's store, and i would share what i saw.

You ever buy ammo at the range?

I watched some poor bastard buy 3 boxes of PMC 9mm to shoot IDPA.

$19.95 EACH!

Would be easy to make money buying a box of 9mm for $9.97 at WM them selling it for double...

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
