    Gotta throw it in the Chi-town fan boys' faces that we got their star 3rd baseman. They're pissed.

    That's why I jumped all over it when mine had 8 boxes of the 100 value pack in 9mm.
    They had no ammunition in 9, 40 or 45 for almost 2 months, then BAM - 8 boxes - and I cleared them out immediately, lol.

    Which Wal Mart is that from? The one on 40?

    I'm surprised they still sell guns. The one in Port Orange quit, and I'm pretty sure Daytona did too.

    They can still sell ammo even though they have quit selling guns. I have 5 Wal-Marts within a pretty close proximity to home/work... 2 sell guns/ammo while the other 3 only sell ammo.

    yep they had 4 boxes of 100rd wwb 9mm and about 10 5ord blazer left with assorted rifle calibers, as for the guns everything west of there is the boonies pretty much and the next nearest place to buy guns if bucks, gun exchange, or bass pro in orlando, i think if they took the guns out of that wal mart they would lose some business

    i went to my 2 closest wal-marts last week and they were both completely out of .40 and .38 which pissed me off since they were the only 2 i was needing on my way to the range, had to buy at the range and pay their marked up prices :(

    They would have to have ammo at the local wally world in order to limit people in the first place

    Depends on the store. In most places it's locked up, and it can be a pain to get anybody over there in the middle of the night. In other places, it's just sitting on a normal shelf and you can grab it any time you want.
