Why does this anti-Wal Mart buillsh!t come up every time a store runs out of ammo????

This sounds like the kind of inane drivel that comes from the socialist labor unions.

We'll see what is really going on.

If the warehouses are just out and they can't get anymore. No problem.

However, we do very little shopping at Wal-Mart and ammo is one of the few things I still buy there. Stop selling ammo and I have no reason to go in the store anymore. That simple. Not a protest, not a boycott, all it would be is they'd take away one of the last reasons I have to still shop there.

Cause the biggest always catch the crap first
Here not a case of won't get ammo - just a case of can't get (much) ammo
Guess many are wishing they bought more when things were "normal"--

We went thru the same ammo shortage a few years ago. Everyone went on a buying spree (including myself) and cleaned everything off the shelf. The ammo supply came back slowly at a higher price but it did come back. Seems like a ammo shortage is good for the manufacturers.

The guy at wallyworld told me the same thing the LGS told me...I am waiting on a shipment.

if wallmart ready did stop selling ammo you would think they would put out a prees release on the corport web sight and the ammo supplyers would be telling their stock holders htey lot the number one buyer. but the news is on hte internet so it must be true

Makes you wonder what Mr. Biden worked out with them in their meeting.

I spoke to the guy yesterday in Sports and Outdoors at one of the local Walmart's.

He said they are still getting it in but it is selling fast. He did find me some 9mm and a few buckshot 12ga shells that were out of sight.

I still don't get where all the buckshot is going.

I'm actually surprised so many folks would be bothered by WalMart not selling ammo ... even more surprised at how many folks actually shop there


They are in bed with communist China and flood our country with garbage quality products I'd rather pay more for the the same item from a mom and pop shop located here in the USA
