Walmart ammo sales

So far here in the Midwest I have not seen any Walmart in the area selling off some of their ammo in non-hunting calibers.

They are all pretty well stocked and selling it off at regular prices.

Any news elsewhere?

I just came back from a Walmart and their 9mm Federal aluminum case ammo was all gone, but prices were still regular.

I thought that Walmart might have wanted to get rid of all that “evil ammo” as soon as possible.

Yup...

Until the Feds/States ban that too, of course, but I'm sure that goes without saying (and I'm sure that's in the works). Can you say California...?

SGAmmo is extremely hard to beat. Excellent prices, fast shipping (usually about 2 days by UPS to most anywhere in the US, only allow you to order what's already packaged to ship, and packaged well so that you ammo won't arrive all beat up...

If you haven't tried them, you'll be happy if you do (and, no, I don't get any commission).

And they're great people to work with, on top of everything else.

WalMart can sell FUDD ammo (which I won't buy there anymore either) and WOKE stuff to mouth-breathers...

And I've bought a lot of ammo at WalMart over the years...

Haven't bought any ammo for a few years. Did my buying when bulk milsurp ammo was pouring into the USA and selling for pennies on the dollar. Stocked up for the rest of my life. As for other hunting rounds I have stockpiled that too. think I'm done buying ammo.

I have a few hundred dollars worth of WM gift cards to use up. Since WM already has the money, it would be foolish to discard them. Once they are done, I will be a former WM customer.
Their sales and open carry policies are irrelevant to me. What is relevant, and egregious, is the petition that they made to Congress demanding further violations of my rights. Those petitions have millions of dollars of "campaign contributions" attached to them.
All that I can do about it is to stop spending money with WM.

I found out last Christmas if you lose a WM gift card, and then ask for a replacement, your told tough luck, WM does not replace lost gift cards.
So no more WM gift cards for the kids.

I didn't buy them. They were swag perk from a hotel chain that I frequented when I was on the road.

Might have better luck at the truck stop, I am sure the lot-lizards are higher quality?

I now have no reason to go to Walmart, f them!

I ordered new drawers online after the announcement.

I wonder if I should “drop-off” the old ones where I bought ‘em?

Not just Wally world

These 10 restaurants and stores want customers to leave their guns at home.

Time to take our business back to the "gun friendly" local mom and pop retailers that Wally World pushed out when they came to town. Wally World said that they don't want half their customers to patronize their stores anymore. Time to do just that.

Unfortunately, many were pushed out and are no longer there.

Just sayin'...

My pharmacy has no issue with open carry and is a small local chain of three stores. They had to put up a "no open carry" sign at one location because of one customer who is on an SSRI with second prescription for "mania" along with Fentanyl patches. Came in one day wanting to fill his Fentanyl almost a week early and was already in withdrawal and freaked out when they refused to fill them. Told me to cover up if use that location and no issues.

Our hobby/sport/rights are going to be lost due to doctor evaluated lunatics that are deemed a danger to themselves and others if mess up by not taking, overtaking or misusing their meds then do something loopy with a firearm. I have had three encounters in past 24 months with armed elderly people diagnosed with Alzheimers or dimensia. All three their caregiver had left the home for just long enough to go to grocery store or pharmacy and left their wife or husband alone with access to a firearm abut time I pull up to execute a work order on the property.

Many are in areas turning commercial or needing to move into assisted living and selling the house means I am likely to be sent out by real estate company. One 84 year old woman came after me with a side by side coach gun, both hammers pulled back and fingers on both triggers because she thought I was stealing her tulips. Had a late 70's male come after me with a 38 special wheel gun cocked for single action pull as thought I was stealing their sign when order was to remove company A's sign and replace with company B as his wife had switched real estate agents and I work for both companies. People are not separating their loved ones with mental health issues from firearms.

Mother of El Paso shooter should have been at least listened to. I have a letter drawn up by a lawyer that if two doctors and two immediate relatives agree I become a danger some day will be separated from my firearms and taken to an assisted living facility already chosen. I have had seen people with Alzheimers do very loopy things and owning a metric ton of armor and NFA firearms if my mental health were to get outside of my ability to safely rationalize threats then I need to be disarmed.

I don't know what the answer is except for more trained rational people to wear armor, carry a real duty weapon and increase likelihood of intervening in an active shooter scenario to where enough are cut down fast the wanna be famous are too scared to try it. We will never purge the U.S. from firearms just like they could never confiscate all of mine. Crap, I don't even know where all are at as have them scattered purposely.

Only one item we buy from Wallyworld wife likes and our grocery store does not stock. Stop in every couple of weeks for that item. Will no longer be going in the store and find another vendor, most likely have to be a Hispanic grocery. I do order DVD's via Walmarts online App as an often find a movie on sale wife wants for $5 or less. Have ordered DVD's from Amazon to receive shipped from Walmart a half block from my office. Since the new policy have been in our local Walmart twice to see if running a sale on evil ammunition, purposely carried open and nobody said a thing.

They probably thought you were a narc popo who decided to not be undercover.
