    I went to a local Walmart this weekend to purchase some bullets for my 10/22. I got to the counter and told the guy what I wanted. After he rang it up, he asked me if it was for a rifle or pistol. I was actually looking like:ugh:. I said rifle. He said if it had been for a pistol he would have had to card me cause you have to be 21 to purchase pistol ammo. Once again I was like:ugh:. I then asked what if I was getting some 9mm or .40, would you ask the same question. He of course said no. I never had been asked this before.

    Because there is no such thing as a 9mm or .40 long gun.

    They ask me that every once and a while. At my local wally when they scan the boxes the register usually prompts to get DOB.

    Thats happened to jme a couple times now when picking up some .40.Do they even make rifles chambered in .40?
    Funny thing is,when I pick up some 5.56/.223,50% of the time it is for a handgun

    u know there are pistols chamebered in .22 like the walther P22. and there are carbines u can buy for 9mm and .40 (beretta CX4, hipoint carbine, ruger carbines, AR uppers) that u can buy when u are 18 as appose to 21 for handguns in some states.

    and again not everyone at walmart is a gun guru. .22lr could mean jack shit to them. when they scan it the computer ask them if it is for handgun or rifle. then they click either one then it ask is the buyer over 18(rifle), or 21(handgun). heck i have a hand gun chambered in 22 short.

    not saying anyone working at walmart are smart but u thinking they are dumb, because they don't know what a .22lr is COMMONLY chambered for is stupid.

    Back when I wasn't 21 yet I used to tell the counter people my handgun ammo was for my Hi Point Carbine. Worked everytime except once, so I went to the sporting goods counter and told the guy I was buying the ammo for my Carbine. So we walked up front with me and told them to sell it to me as long as I was 18. Done deal, and I did that from then on until I was 21.

    When I buy ammo in bulk at Walmart, I usually make it a habit to look pissed and pound my fist on their glass counters.

    My brother cant buy .22 ammo from wal mart. Its fucking retarded they treat it like its a handgun. I feel like telling them THERE IS NO LAW SAYING YOU HAVE TO BE 21 TO BUY AMMUNITION.

    He just goes to the gun shop now.
