    There was a sale at my local Dick's Sporting Goods this week on ammo, so I stopped in to stock up on some slugs for hunting season, and some .22lr for plinking with my pistol. The slugs are out on the shelf, but the bricks of 22 ammo are behind the counter. So I asked the guy at the counter for a few bricks, and as he goes to grab he asks "Is this for your rifle or pistol?" SO I say my pistol, and he's like, "Oh... then I'm gonna have to see your permit to sell this to you." :ugh: I'm just like WTF?!? Luckily I had my permit with me, because I wasn't carrying at the moment.

    This is the first time this has happened to me. What's the point?! If someone was buying it for an illegal pistol they'd just say it was for a rifle anyhow?! I asked the guy if he was aware how pointless and ridiculous it was to ask that... but he seemed to think it was a good policy.

    Has this ever happened to any of you?! :dunno:

    similar. What pisses me off is that WalMart has .17HMR, but they think it is pistol ammo, when I only know of one pistol that shoots it, but a fuck ton of rifles :rofl:


    ah well, as of yesterday, I don't have to deal with that anymore.

    One time while getting 9mm at Walmart, they asked if it was for a pistol or rifle, then made me show ID that I was 21.

    I went to wal-mart once to buy some .223. It was like 4.97 a box there and they asked to see my foid card. They said "sorry, youre not 21" You cant buy handgun ammo. Im like wtf, its fucking rifle ammo. Told her to get the manager and that dieased whore said shes had that problem before but they cant seem to fix it. Yeah, more like cant seem to care about fixing it :ugh:

    I think the most i've gotten in ct is asking if i was atleast 21. Never had to show the permit or id or anything.

    really? Its only 18 out here for .22LR. Its wierd, 9mm they will let go if you say you have a rifle, but .17HMR they won't :rofl:

    think thats funny. I only go to wally world at around 2am cause i hate shopping with people around, pisses me off.

    well they aren't supposed to sell ammo past a certian hour, I think 10pm. I walked up to the only line open with 400rnds of 223 and 400nds of 9mm wwb and they let me buy it.

    Doesn't a dude buying 800 rounds of ammo at 2am throw up a red flag? Guess not.

    it isn't a state thing, its federal, handgun ammo purchasers need to 21, long gun ammo purchases need to be 18. if it can be either they ask you what its for.

    LOL at anyone that would expect any kind of service better than what was mentioned. I have to repeatedly tell myself when I'm in there "they're only minimum wage workers, they're only minimum wage workers". if they knew any better, they wouldn't be on there and we wouldn't have walmart prices if they hired brain surgeons.

    This is their only form of "superiority" they're allowed in their life, leave them with something. lol


    buying factory ammo ftl anyhow.

    I love how you have to show a permit to buy the ammo, where as here in FL if I show my CWP when they ask for ID I get an :ugh: response.

    I've put a few rounds through a neighbor's .30-06 pistol. I'm not sure I want to do it again though.
