Default Walmarts new policy

Well, I was just told that all walmarts have changed their policy to no ammo sales between 10pm and 7am, I'm officially done with Walmart.

They have what i need on the shelf, I only want one box and they won't sell it to me.

Ran into this last week. I don't agree with it but they have unbeatable prices when it comes to ammo. I can't get mad when I'm paying 22.00 for 100 9mm or 32.00 for 100 .45ACP.

That's understandable, but considering the shift I work and where I live, i won't be able to buy ammo from Walmart at all... That is until stocks are back to normal

The only way ill be able is to take a day off

That sucks Sputnik. I feel for you. I would call the corporate office and file a complaint. I'm sure if enough people in your situation file complaints, they will change the policy.

What is their excuse for this rule. There is no regs that say ammo can't be bought at night. Also it isn't like some one needs to work in sporting goods to sell it. You just ring it up at front of the store. If mine had shotgun shells in stock I would walk in at night and pick up a box and see what they do. Sadly been none on shelf for months on end.

My guess is they don't have the people in the store to get the ammo out. Go to a Walmart at midnight and try to get some help. You'll be waiting a while. They have very few employees late at night and the majority of them are pissed off, restockers.
