There's been a lot of talk about Wally Whirled and ammo lately...
I bought some .45 ACP there this evening, first time buying ammo at wally's in years.
The only thing that was said to me, "do you have more shopping to do?"
Me, "yes"
Clerk, "I'll just stick this under the counter for you, I'm sure you don't want to carry around 150 rounds, it's kind of hefty..."
"Thanks man"

Guy didn't ask for an ID or anything. Just rang it up, punched in a date, and stuck it in the bag...

I buy almost all my ammo at WalMart and I've never had a problem.

Same for me. I bought a box of 30-30 and two boxes of .22 Magnum. The lady unlocked the case and handed it to me. Asked her if I had to pay for it there. She said "you can pay for it here or up front when you check out." I just put it in my cart and they rang it up with the bread and milk.

He correctly points out that the ammo can be used for pistols, but this is retarded. I know I'm using the word retarded a lot, but after a year of waiting for my pistol permit, in this crap state, that is the best word to describe them.

I ordered online from Cabelas and the ammo is on it's way with no issues so far. Fingers crossed.
When I purchased 22LR ammo at Walmart, the lady asked me what I was using it for, I said my rifle, she cashed me out. No further questions. I'm in RI by the way, another semi tough firearms regulating state. I suppose it depends on who you have behind the counter on any given day?

Yup, that's the one. I usually only ever buy ammo but they sometimes have some pretty good deals on old military rifles. (Rare, but it happens.)

the only issue i have ever had when buying ammo at WalMart is our store requires you to pay for it in sporting goods. if i have other shopping to do, i just keep the receipt in my pocket and keep it handy and put the ammo in the buggy and go about my shopping. seems as of lately, in our WalMart, they have some people who work the sporting goods that seem to have some common sense about themselves. kind of rare, i know. there is one older lady who usually works sporting goods, that actually knows a little about firearms and ammo that is always very helpful. i just hope they don't move her into another department!

I try to buy all my ammo from a small local dealer, to hell with walmart. For larger volumes sometimes I go online to Ammoman or ammo to go etc. Our Dicks is retarded too about ammo and paranoid to the max about guns and letting you handle them. What is it with chain stores anyway? Support your local dealer and he'll be there when you need him.

Wally World isn't worth much these days. The only thing made in America is ammo and you need to beg to get it. Screw 'em.

If the places mentioned above aren't near you, buy online like you did. You shouldn't have any problems.
Dick's Sporting Godds WILL ask to see your pistol permit IF you're buying pistol ammo. My son and myself bought several boxes of .45 acp ammo and the first thing the clerk asked for was a pistol permit. Gander Mt didn't require it.

Most of their ammo is way over priced. Biekirks is the place to go for ammo.
