Same here. They don't get my business on anything though. West Monroe is still old fashioned enough that we actually have things like hardware stores and whatnot.

Wal-Mart is raising their prices on magazines and other accessories, they have Remington magazines for my 597 but they are charging $16 for them when I bought two for $8 from them a few months ago.

At least you can find a magazine....the Mags that I have been looking for (mossberg 702 and S& W SD40 VE) are only available on Ebay right now and are ridiculously high.

I, and others, believe they are purchasing it before it hits the floor....is anyone else experiencing this....or am I just frustrated?

And I don’t think it’s just happening at Wally World. It’shappening everywhere. I was talking to someone that used to work at local Dunham’s and he said that the employees there would take a stash of ammo before it would hit the floor and horde it for themselves. What they put out the floor is onlya third of what they sale the public. It’s a shame..

Actually, if you keep your eyes open (and use say, AmmoSeek.com or ammonow.com) you can find stuff reasonable (well... as reasonable as it gets for now at least). I lucked up a couple of weeks ago and got a 375 round pack of 22lr off Cabelas for $33.75 (that included the shipping) which comes out to about $.09 a round... Still high, but it was in stock and on my door step in 4 days.... My son was very excited... Now we can go plinking this weekend !!

Actually they have been really easy for me to find in the past....but when they were plentiful, I was not shooting like i do now...and were certainly not as expensive.

I never buy ammo from Walmart. But just yesterday after picking up dog threats for my dogs, I stopped and picked up a few boxes of shotgun shells. They were overpriced, needlessly to say.

Yesterday Wal-Mart did have maybe 25 boxes of 223 but only had 3 when I went back, it only lasted a few hours.

I get so sick of the damn anti Wal-Mart whining. For Gawd's sake take that crap to the conspiracy forum.
