This, IMO, is just more RKBA infringement meddling.
1. Yes, you are correct.

2. No one can prove it.

Its a shame what happened!
Write a letter to the Mgr. Write a letter to Walmart Corp. Write a letter to editor of paper. Get something out there beyond our group. Keep at them (walmart) they are ignorant and need to be educatied,

It's not just age verification. There's more paperwork involved selling pistol ammo. I've gone in and bought pistol ammo before and had the clerk say "tell me it's for a rifle and we won't have to do the paperwork".

I guess that depends on state. Only paperwork I do for ammo is signing the receipt on the extremely rare occasions that I use my card.

But yeah, f*ck walmart. I go to meijer if I absolutely have to, but I keep my money local. Not as cheap, but my money helps put my neighbors kids through college or whatever. Not line the fat cat walton familys pockets with money.
When you buy from a Goodwill, Salvation Army, or other thrift

stores, everything is secondhand, and from

here, whether it was originally manufactured overseas or not.

You pay for American jobs, and every dime stays in the country.

90% of our clothing comes from these places. Food either comes from one of the local grocery stores or a meijer. I try to be as "freegan" as possible. I go treasure hunting on garbage day, I check out dumpsters, people waste so much without any care or concern.

Wouldn't that be cool, especially this time of year? I would bet there are a lot of people who still have an old single-shot .410 that would make some kid a great first shotgun. My first "real gun" was a used single-shot .22 that my Dad bought from a friend.

Love or hate Wal-Mart, they are back to selling Federal Champion 115 Gr. 9 MM in the 100 round "Value Packs" for $19.97 a box. That is back down to under $10.00 a box of 50 they were selling it for a couple of years ago. They had it jacked up to $11.97 a box, (no deal at all). It sat on the shelves because places like Cabela's often had it for $9.99. So in their competitive nature, they lowered it. You can't beat it for general target shooting. I've run thousands of rounds through all of my 9 MM handguns, and even my Rock River Arms LAR-9, 9 MM AR-15. It's good ammo.

Yeah, the 100 rd "Family packs" at wally whirled are hard to beat for sure. I've been buying them in 45 acp for YEARS...thats what i was headed in to get when the greeter greeted me so rudely all those years ago...

....now that you mention it.....i NEED a couple hundred rounds for the 9mm!
