Went to the new Walmart tonight to pick up some Winchester white box 223 for my Dads new RRA he is getting for Christmas, and the dude behind the counter says it is against state law to sell ammo after 10pm. It was 10:05.

Is this correct? If it is, I have never heard of it. They have 30-30, 30-06, and shotgun ammo on the shelves, but he said he couldn't sell anything that was in the case.

By the way, this is the new store on S Elm-Eugene St in Greensboro. They have some of the most unhelpful, mean and down right disrespectful people working there. Even though it's a longer drive, I am going back to the store in Randleman from now on......

I dunno if its against the law, but my local Wal-Mart doesn't sell ammo after 9 or 10 pm. I think its just a store policy.

Here in SC it's ten o'clock when they stop issuing ammo from the "depot" as I often refer to it as. However they leave the value packs laying out on a shelf behind the counter. I have been known to issue them to myself when there is no one around and when it's after 10. The cashier up front asks for ID most of the time, and always asks if the 9mm is for a handgun... Standard reply is "No, its for a machine gun. I don't own a 9mm handgun." Yeah, I'm lying to them, sort of, but it really isn't anyone business what type of gun I'm gonna use them in. The sporting goods guys and gals are nice when they are there. I don't mess with them, they are actually helpful and courteous.

The handgun question is to satisfy Wally Worlds policy concerning ammo sales to persons 18 and 21 years of age, the register prompts the question. I do like your answer though

I've never heard of a time frame on ammo/firearm sales. Age limits, yes.

ive got ammo at walmart here in SC at 3am before. they just stop manning the sporting goods section usually after 10. on weekends they have someone there 24x7 though, and even if noone is there i just drag someone from some other section to get what i want.

the walmart closest to me has all the shotshell ammo out on the shelves so you can get that whenever as well just bring it up to the front with you.

How're the prices at WalMart? Its a pain in the ass to have to go to Dick's Sporting Goods to get some extra ammo for a bit of plinking. Besides the fact that the cheapest .308 they sell is about $1/round. And there's no way I'm paying that for something to shoot at a piece of paper or maybe a cinderblock.

(Re-Reminds self to start buying in bulk online sooner rather than later. )

Unless you just need commercial hunting 308 I would never buy fmj 308 from chinamart for
the above price. Go here for a always updated list of online surplus 308, and MERRY CHRISTMAS
