    [A sign posted that limits handgun ammo to two boxes per customer!]

    That took a while. I HAD been being polite, and when they had some in stock, I would only pick up a couple boxes at a time. I went there early last week, and there was NOTHING except for a few boxes of some oddball size. Went back later in the week, and they had a little bit (and I mean a LITTLE BIT) of every caliber. I snagged a couple boxes to feed my Ruger P95, and noticed the framed sign- LIMIT 2 BOXES PER CUSTOMER ALL HANDGUN AMMUNITION. Wow. So since I still had money to burn I picked up a bag of circus peanuts for the ride home. :rofl:

    Oh well. Guess I have to sneak in a stop there more often and keep checking up.

    My nearest WalMart finally posted a sign. They are limiting to 6 boxes

    I guess it's working because there has actually been a few boxes on the shelf lately.

    There were 5x 9mm and 6x .45. I was going to buy all the 9mm and a box of .45, but another guy walked up and said he was looking for some 9mm. I bought three of the 9mm and three of the .45 and left him two boxes of 9mm. He had a look of shock on his face and was thanking me for not taking it all.

    This was the only store around me that wasn't limiting. This store finally put up a sign after some douchebag came in and bought all 32 boxes of 9mm BlazerBrass before they even finished putting it on the shelf.

    The only ammunition our Walmart has is standard hunting rifle calibers, like 30-30, etc; a little .22 and some shotgun, but not much.
    Absolutely NONE of the good rifle rounds and zero handgun as well. :wtc:

    Stopped by Walmart again ... 20+ boxes of Federal .22 bulk and 18+ boxes of WWB .40 value packs. They have plenty of .308, .243, .30-30, .30-06, .270, .300, etc...

    I grabbed a couple .40, couple .22 bulk, and a couple .243...


    Could it be that this ammo shortage might be coming to a close? :x:

    I'd say it's coming around when there's 9mm all over the place. Then it's coming around.

    Lies. Every Wal-Mart is perma- out of stock of all useful pistol ammo (crap rounds like .25ACP and .32ACP don't count).
