    My wife I went to Walmart today to do some shopping, So I wanted to check the ammo, I know there wasn't going to be any. The woman that works the counter told us that they were told they can't order ANY ammo. She thought it sucked to, she is a gun owner to.

    The great thing about the free market is that no matter who is selling a product a market is only so large in any given area. If a competitor no longer wants to compete in any given market, the share will just be distributed between the remaining competitors. Now if it is true that Walmart gets some break on obamacare then they will have an unfair advantage to compete in other areas. I don't see how any negotiation between the government and Walmart could affect firearms in any relevant way, confused...

    I'm guessing corporate can't get ammo in their warehouses.

    more than likely the suppliers have very limited quantities of stock. you can't order what's not available.

    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.

    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

    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 :eek: ... even more surprised at how many folks actually shop there :confused:


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