I don't think that's always the case. The man that works at my Wal-Mart says that they don't get much in the shipment and I believe him. There sometimes is 9mm but there is a long line early I'm the mornings for 22lr.

Here is a couple: California. ..

It took me 6 hours to get from Vegas to Barstow yesterday.

Then I go to get breakfast and I see a sign on the door of the Jack in the Box saying they accept EBT cards inside. It's enough to make a tax payer mad.

I met a manager for Walmart who works at the warehouse. He said he buys most of the ammo at employee discount then sells it to a local mom and pop store. I'm tempted to report this @&€#*¥%#€£!!!!!

I would report his ass so fast his head would spin clean off. this is exactly the kind of douchebag that is causing a problem where there isn't necessarily one.

I'm guessing Wal Mart would consider that "theft" as well. I know if you were doing something like that at auto zone you would be fired the second the could prove it.

Could be what my local Walmart is doing. There hasn’t been any .22 in stock since this whole shortage thing started.

at my local WalMart, the ammo comes in at 5:30-6:00am on tuesdays and thursdays. it's usually gone by 7am. no 22lr or 9mm or 45 or 223. even the 12 ga is limited on the shelves.

yep, i'd have that douchbag reported as well. i'm not for sure what he's doing isn't illegal as well as being unethical. WalMart does have ethics clauses in the employee handbook. selling ammo at a profit without an FFL might even be against the law, but i'm not for sure about that.
