Yesterday me and my brother were in wal-mart to buy .22 bullets. I'm 19 and he's 14. She asked me how many boxes I needed and I told her one box but then my brother interjected and said get two, she looked at me and I said two.
She rings them up and then ask to see both of our ID's. When I told her he didn't have one she said she couldn't sell me the bullets. I told her put the box he wanted back and just give me the box I wanted, and she said she still couldn't sell them to me because he had interacted in me buying ammunition??
We got into a discussion and I left wall-mart without my ammo

People have been denied sales in Walmart just for having someone with them. If they speak up and are a minor its all over.

Yup, Walmart employees are not bright.

Not rare. Next time leave your brother over in the video game area while you go get ammo. FWIW, you being 19 means you may still catch crap from the more ignorant salespeople.
I can see it now: "It can be used in a rifle or a pistol so I can't sell it to you."

I was denied purchase of paint balls once because I didn't have an fid. Now that one pissed me off.

Another Columbine is prevented with well though-out laws in place and a trained sales staff on station!

Best one I ever got told by Wally world.... Was buying 44 mag ammo for a Ruger carbine, employee said there was no such thing...... Told me there was no rifle ever made in that caliber..... I could have punched that fella, I was 18.

Got denied some .22lr from gander mountain one time,I'm 20. There was no argument,just a "sir your not old enough to buy this ammo according to the computer" after putting my birthdate in the computer. I sat my already rang up and bagged items on the ground by the register and walked out,about 100 dollars worth of stuff,and walked next door to dicks sporting goods and got all my stuff there,the clerk at dicks didn't even ask for ID for the ammo there,though I do look older than 20 now.

Never try to argue with an idiot. They will just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
