Most of my LGS have been price gouging. One has American Eagle 115gr FMJ 50rds for $26.95. Another is selling it for $20.99 when they have it. Why pay that much when I can get 100 rds of Federal for $21.97 from Wally? As soon as the LGS stop price gouging, I'll pay extra to support them. Until then, they won't get a dime of my money.

HAHAHa ! Wow. I love that one. "its the law!" Shut up pizza face! Its your stupid store policy. Own it bitch. Grow a pair and be honest about it.

I had the same thing happen to me when I started shipping as an FFL. A fedex wank told ME that it was the law that all firearms had to be shipped 2nd day air. Like a new, terrified FFL has no idea about shipping laws. I got the manager to admit it eventually. Some people need slapped more than others. Good. Swift. Backhand.

Just another reason to steer clear of Wally World for anything gun related. Bunch of idiots working for DB corporate schills

I might do a late purchase of some 12 gauge ammo, since it is not behind glass cabinet. I will post what Wal-Mart does.

They push the federal law BS crap, I will indicate show me the regulation!

I was told by my local Wally World that they won't sell ammo after 10pm cuz of a state law (Kalifornia). I don't know if its true or it. I accepted it really without question because this state is so messed up in every regard for gun owners, that I pretty much didn't put it past them.

It's bull crap... There are a few stores that say that in my area but the vast majority will sell me ammo whatever time they have it.

Sounds like a store policy, or laziness

I understand what you mean. Walmart had the pricing...but on my area not the stock. my time is worth more than my money to me...plus I have found ammo at lgs that is within $5 of Walmart pricing...its worth that to not have the hassle.

Turns out, the manager I talked to last night was being honest. And another store had 50 round boxes in stock. Some stores are different than others.

The Walmart by me will not put out new ammo inventory till the next morning no matter when it gets there. I went this past Sunday at 6pm. They said yes they had it but it was in the cage and will not be on the selves till morning. Well 6am the next morning wife and I where in line to score 22lr ammo and we did. 6 boxes of Winchester bulk 555rds ea box.

Supposedly what I have been told at MANY walmarts, is once they sell out in the mornings, they will not restock till the following morning. This is what I was told a new company policy that was sent out in memo's to all walmart stores. Was also told the line starts at 6:00 am and the ammo comes out at 7:00 am. I have scored a lot of ammo this week just by stopping on my way in to the job site (around 10 till 7). Usually 1st or 2nd in line! I dont stop unless the app shows stock on something I need though.
