There doing the same thing here. I seen federal bulk 22 baged up in hundred round bags for 10 bucks a pop. Theres a guy that goes into the sporting goods store here and buys all he can then he wates for the shift change and puts different clothes on and buys all he can again.

This thread brings to mind something I have witnessed.
It seems many people have been raised to think everythig-even life in general, should be "fair." It isn't, shouldn't and won't ever be "fair."
"Fair" is socialist thinking in the extreme. What you are seeing is the free market and capitalism at work. If you want the ammunition, be smart enough, or resourceful enough to figure out how to get it for yourself. See my earlier post and quit whining.

Maybe you should arrive at 4 AM.
and maybe you should come to Cotttonwood Az. and stand on the line at 1am. for me.

A) I'm disabled. Even if I showed up at 1 am someone would already be there. One of the persons working for the LGS drives his RV to the Walmart lot and stays there until it's time to get online in Sporting goods,..after he's had his McDonalds @ Walmart coffee....
B) There really IS something they can do about it! Don't sell to other retailers. But when your "Paying off" a store manager or worse, the Store GM, you can get away with whatever you want. Now I take pics of the case everytime its empty and the Walmart app says "in Stock" which is almost always "INCORRECT" because it's not in the back room or on the shelf. it's under the register wrapped in 3 bags so no one sees it.
Someone else here mentioned they take a cellphone pic of the employee to send to corporate and they "magically" find Handgun ammo under a register. I now ONLY buy supplies & accessories there,.or a magazine or two(it's the only place I can find WESTERN Shooting Journal for example) I DID get a nice Boresnake package, and some more reactive mounted Targets there yesterday, for "Outside/Outdoor" shooting, and a Light/laser combo for one of my Handguns.

Personally when the crisis finally ends,..there gonna have lots of ammo on hand they can't sell at inflated prices,..so they can choke on it. I will continue to Kvetch about it,..but buy mine by mail order when ever affordable...it took me 6+ months to rebuild the Supply On hand and the "do not touch" stock by watching ammoseek for good prices and jumping on it,..like the two bricks of Federal Auto-Match last month. I now have 2K of 22's in asst. Bricks I don't touch, and only shoot 100 rd. packs or keep empty ones and (re)fill them from an open brick. My most recent score is 300 rds. of Remington Yellow Jackets(the only Ammo from them in 22 I like), 300 asstd. 22Mag., and some 100 packs of Winchester Xpert.....
My wife & I usually do two trips to the range per month,..plus some "twilight" shooting against the side of the mountain nearest us. It's usually about 300 22's per session, and i'm not even loading THAT many ext. mags for the rifles or it would be more like 500.

Maybe If more people stood up and said something about it they would change their practices,..but they figure everyone is like YOU BDS,...who just points a finger and says "quit whining" instead of seeing a Wrong and trying to make it right.

Doc, you should show up to the RV with coffee and engage the guy in conversation. Let him know he is buying ammo other people need/want. IOW shame the bulk buyer.

Our wally's has a 3 box limit, and I don't mind it a bit.

If they were paying off the managers, they wouldn't have to camp out to buy the ammunition.

Ok but that's not what I'm hearing or seeing.

Regarding Code3Tactical Supply - I had two ammo orders outstanding for many months - they never charged my card. I happened to be up in Madison and stopped by their store. Legit business, nice guy in there (not the owner), and happily cancelled both of my ammo orders. They just don't have the buying power to get the ammo in stock. Needless to say he agreed that they've had some bad press since their website doesn't show stock or back order. He did point me to the back room to show me what little ammo they did receive in a shipment that afternoon that was going out for customer orders. He wouldn't sell me any of it as they were trying to get what backorders they could filled.
