I searched and couldn't find a thread on National Ammo Day so I'm posting this. My idea that I posted at Pre-Ban was for all of us to buy ammo from one big box, retailer such as Wal-Mart. Now before all of you bitch and moan about Wal-Mart I will present my rational behind this idea. If the Pro-RKBA group all bought ammo from online sellers and gun stores it won't make a ripple in the news, now if we totally wiped out Wal-Mart nationwide of ammo on ONE DAY then you would see Dan Rather reporting it on the nightly news as much as it would kill him to have to read it. That would be huge news they couldn't ignore.

If the publicity could be guaranteed (not bloody likely) it might be a good idea. But I'd rather profit gun store owners.

that's a great idea! however, being that "ammo day" is Nov 19, the sudden influx of ammo sales at a wal-mart will, at least in the midwest, most likely just be attributed to opening week of the deer season.

Sounds good, I need more CCI Velocitor ammo anyway...

Lots more... The P22 and 10/22 love it.

Ya know that does make a lot of sense. Use a national retailer. Since Wally World is the most wide spread - hit it. (not to be confused with I'd hit it)

somehow one of the Wal-Mart "higher-ups" should be contacted in order to get the message through

I'm in! I'll be at the Wal-Mart at the I469/IN SR37 exit in Ft. Wayne IN on Wednesday buying whatever is On Sale!

Even if it didn't hit the media, the news of the sales spike for ammuntion on November 19th would certainly hit the executive boardroom. It's just as important for the retailer to know that there is a market to serve.

AHHH SHIT, more ammo???

Oh, ok, I guess you twisted my arm.

So what I will do is guarantee you I will buy every box of .40 cal value packs and every box of .223 value packs from the Walmart on Rainbow here in Vegas.

Honest, I don't care how much they have of it, I will buy it all.

My pledge.

It really depends on what clerk you talk to out here. The thing is, Walmart never orders just 10 boxes of a caliber, it comes in cases. Now what they choose to make available for sale is a different story sometimes.
