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. 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. 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.
