    Wanted to check if they still sold guns / ammo, since some aren't going to anymore apparently.
    :wtc:

    They do! :bigthumb: Picked up 600rds of wwb 9mm, was the only thing I'm missing for next week (taking the week off to unwind, mostly go shooting)

    hopefully 600 does it, luckily they had about another 1500 rounds from what I could see, if the first 600 isn't enough.

    a couple of weeks ago, I wiped out the counter of their WWB 9mm.

    I went up and asked for 10. The guy was like "10?! 10!? 10???"

    I go, "yes".

    Then he responds with, what if the people behind you want some. I said, maybe i'll leave a box or 2 behind.

    As the guy was taking 10 boxes out, i noticed there were only a couple left. I asked how many. He said 2. I'll take those too then.

    yeah. you'd think people never buy ammo when I go to Walyworld. The people look at me like I'm nuts when I order 500 rounds - like they're going to call the cops on me.

    I need more ammo boxes. Maybe about 5 more. Best I've found is $50 for 5, shipped.

    I find them for about $4 in pretty decent shape at the gunshows, and I think that even the local farmer supply store has started selling rusted and painted surplus ones for $5 or $6

    I was surprised to see that it was 12.88 a box, but, still cheaper than any of the gun shops around for 100rds.

    I was at Walmart getting stuff for trade school, and I go back to the sporting goods section to buy some cheap Remington .223, and they are out. So I just decide to go to the other one insted of paying $13 a box.
    Get there, theres only ONE box behind the counter. I ask the decrepit old lady thats working there when their next shipment is gonna be in, and she says do you really expect me to know that?

    Then she asks me how many boxes I was wanting. I say about 5 or 6. Then she looks at me funny like I was stockpiling for a shooting spree.

    I need to find a new place to get ammo. I wanna go there and be able to buy a couple hundred rounds if I want.

    .223 prices are bullshit. I paid just as much per round for .30 and it was in bandoleers and garand clips too.

    Went to walmart today to check to see if they got any more .223 in. They had 3 boxes. I told him Id take all3 . Then he asks to see mt foid card.
    Show it to him.
    Then he says oh, you cant have this.
    I said why not, im 20.

    This is handgun ammunition, you have to be 21.
    And then I just stared at him going :ugh:

    Asked to talk to the manager, and she said that they cant let me have it even if im not lying because the computer said so.

    This is unamerican

    you would think places that sell guns and ammo... the departments that handle the guns and ammo in particular, would have a clue about their products. :mamoru:

    That's when you offer to grab the rifle that you intend to shoot the ammo with out of your car so that you can show them :mamoru:.

    I never get any looks whenever I buy large amounts of ammo. The only comment I get is "looks like you're going to have some fun." Or something of that nature :dunno:

    One time when I was in walmart, I was buying white out. I was 19, I needed it for school, and they wouldn't sell it to me because I wasn't 21 because "You kids use it to get high, so our policy for it is the same as for beer". I looked at her funny, put it back and bought a box of shotgun shells instead.
