i agree with AZL. there is an age restriction on ammo, 18 for rifle and shotgun ammo and 21 for pistol ammo. WalMart hires many brain dead idiots who have little understanding of simple procedures and problems, why we believe them to be able to understand the legal guidelines and regulations in regards to firearms and ammo? they move people around departments so much, that many of the people who you will have to deal with in sporting goods haven't a clue about anything firearm related.

Why didn't you just ask for a manager?

So I'm buying my 22LR ammo, alone, and I'm 55, look like I'm 65.

The clerk asks "Is this for a pistol?"

Note, same WallyWorld (and others) this happens on a monthly basis...

The question comes up on the register when the ammo is ran thru. They have to put in an answer for the register to proceed.

Don't worry about it...It's stupid. Wal-mart doesn't sell to anyone below 18 or if your parents are there becuase it's a "straw-purchase."

At age 15 I was already a NYS sporting clay champion in my division...walk into wal-mart cuz I need some extra ammo, drop the box on the counter with money, no deal.

"Uhm...I need to see your I.D....."

-my face when "excuse me?"

I have gone into the local Big 5 with my two underage boys and gotten a little guff from the store manager. He has always been a jerk. Then one day my wife (their mom) went in with them and asked to see an M1 carbine. They guy refused to give it to her saying that it would be illegal for him to allow her to let the boys handle it (it is legal for a parent to allow their child to handle firearms in a store and it is legal for a parent to purchase a firearm with the full intent of giving that gun to their child). I fired of an angry email to the corporate headquarters and they called me the next day. They said the manager would be retrained to follow the law (they did agree with my interpretation of what the law in our state allows).

The thing is that minors cannot legally purchase ammunition or firearms, but their parents can legally purchase them for their kids, but they must be your own kids. One cannot make the same purchases for nieces or nephews for instance.
