What kinda shit is this? I guess they can reserve the right to sell to anyone, but does it really matter that it's 10 PM and I want to buy four boxes of .22 rounds?

I called and complained to the assistant manager. I'm going to complain to the store manager tomorrow and call 1800 Wal Mart. I personally think this is bullshit.

I also had one more suggestion for the Assistant Manager. That was that she should send the Sporting Goods employee to clean the puddle of URINE off the floor under the urinal, since he wasn't needed at the sporting goods counter if he couldn't sell ammo. She tried telling me that it was a federal law about him not selling ammo (which is bullshit).

Since I first posted this on SIG forum, I received a call and apology from their customer service manager, but still no clear detirmination if this is policy or not.

I'd appreciate it if everyone hit up the walmartstores.com website and made a complaint on their comment form as well.

Apparently criminals buy their .22 rounds at 10 pm, but never during the day.

Nevermind that I had a pistol in the truck and a full magazine with it.....

Go in to the store in the morning and sit at the ammo counter until their designated sales time starts and tell the sales associate "hurry, I need to buy 20 boxes of ammo RIGHT NOW!!!! then hurry to the check out area.

When I was in high school, 3 of my friends and I all went in and bought BB guns and a ton of BB's at about 3am and the sporting goods clerk didn't even bat an eye. The guys at the Wal-mart I get a lot of my ammo from are generally pretty good, at least compared to the horror stories I hear here.
Link Posted: 4/2/2006 4:26:04 PM EDT
Better yet, ask them, "There's NO background check to buy ammo, IS THERE????????"



Link Posted: 4/2/2006 4:26:21 PM EDT
So buy your shooting spree ammo at 8:55 then...
Link Posted: 4/2/2006 4:27:01 PM EDT
I just went to the local WalMart to buy some .308. The clerk looks behind the counter and can't find any, but asks me if I want .380 instead.

Clearly, this guy was a retard about firearms.

I can only hope that this guy wasn't selling guns to newbies, because anybody who would take advice from him would probably get themselves hurt.

Nope. Two weeks ago I bought $120 worth of ammo from the exact same store at about 10 pm.
Link Posted: 4/2/2006 4:31:38 PM EDT
I got a 24 hour Walmart by my house and the same thing happend to me. I had just gotten off work around 10:00 and stopped for some 9mm ammo, and they wouldn't sell to me. I then asked "is this a law". He replied " I'm not sure; all I know is that I can't sell ammo past a certain time". So I left it at that and went across the street to the 24 hour Meijer and bought my ammo.

I came to the conclusion that either Meijer is breaking the law or Walmart is being run by a bunch of panzies.

Good one, just make sure you look around first before you say it.



Link Posted: 4/2/2006 4:41:38 PM EDT
Why not buy from a local dealer, especially one that sells EBRs?
Link Posted: 4/2/2006 8:31:59 PM EDT
24 hour Walmarts here, no restrictions. Buy all you want at 3am.

Ours are open 24/7

ETA: I've never thought of buying ammo at 3am, so I can't speak to what the procedure is. At 3am, I couldn't care less unless an emergency has occured, in which case I'm good to go.

I read on here a few yes back about a guy who was denied a sale on cleaning patches because it was after 8pm.

I bought ammo the other night pretty late.

i can top that. i wasted a trip to wal mart this morning to pick up ammo. evidently the sporting goods clerk laid out of work this morning, and he was the only motherfucker in the world that had a key to the ammo cabinet. the store manager suposedly doesn't even have a key.

Thats total BS, the ammo is kept totally unlocked in the back, they could of just got it there.

I buy ammo at my local Wally World at all hours of the night. It is open 24 hours and I don't get off until 11pm so I buy ammo between midnight and 4AM usually!!

Both of mine are open 24/7 and sell ammo the entire time.

He obviously wasn't aware of the danger that late-night cleaning patches present to the public.

Shame on him.

The two 24 hour Wal-Marts here wouldn't sell between 10:00pm to 8:00am.

I've never had a problem buying ammo late at night at Walmart.

Nope & value pks right out on the shelf here

yeah anytime.
Im kinda tempted to buy a pair a panty house, some rope and a box of ammo just to see the look on the clerks face.
Link Posted: 4/2/2006 9:21:06 PM EDT
the guy who knows me at my wal mart always lets me buy, even when I go in at 12am.

If it is a person I dont know then they give me shit.

The sky has now fallen for the 860th time this year. but this time only in the vicintiy of a few chosen Wal-Marts.

Why is that a problem? If I owned Wal Mart and I decided to sell only to people after 9 wearing pink and purple, then that's my deal. WTF is wrong with you people? if you don't like the stupid rules of some places, than shop some where else...

What's wrong is that it wasn't the rule of the store, or the company. Just some stupid cocksucker pushing his agenda on me.

Because I live in a socialist commune and EBRs are all but banned here. I have to travel to a Wal-Mart in a different county just to buy ammo at all, they don't carry it i this county at all.

Not all stores have ammo in the stock room, and many that do lock it up in the gun cage/room. The keys were available, as sporting good associates can't leave the store with them. The store manager/assistant managers don't have the keys to the gun cabinet, but he/she can go and get them just like the sporting goods associate has to do every morning when they get there. You just had a lazy fuck that didn't want to help you.

Years ago I asked for 7.62 NATO and the guy handed me a box of UMC 150 grain .308 FMJs. Pretty sharp guy.

So I guess when Wally World now longer sales ammo 'for the safety of the children' you'll just sell your ARs?

I was meaning you could mail order your ammo, doesn't necessarily have to be Ammoman.

My Wal-Mart told me that they wouldn't sell me ammo after 6pm. So I made a formal complaint with corporate. I got a call back from the store manager apologizing and telling me that it won't happen again.

Limitations on ammo purchases (quantity or when it can be purchased) should be BANNED!

I do mail order most of my ammo. .22 it isn't worth it, although I did end up ordering 5.000 rds because wal mart didn't want to sell to me that night.
