    ...and never saw so much 9x19 ammo on the shelf! There most have been 200 boxes. Not much else...but they had enough "9" to handle your request. Oh...almost forgot...$13.00 and change/50 round box.

    I left it all there. I don't have a 9mm.

    I agree with you. My local Wal-Mart (although not my favorite place) recently re-arranged the sporting goods section and the amount of 9mm they normally have just about quadrupled. I do, however, own a 9mm, but left the ammo there as I have no money.

    Mine had absolutely bare shelves, except for shotgun shells and one lonely WWB 7.62 x 39 bulk pack.

    several of my local chinamarts have only a buttload of this orange box 9mm (can't recall the brand) for $16.97/50 rounds. pass.

    my local gunshop has cheaper 9mm than that (winchester 9mm nato for $13.99).

    Things are a little more dire here, lol. When I even deign to look at the local Wally-world all I see is a few boxes of 9mm, a little 22 (LR, WMR, etc.), and whole truck-load of shotgun shells (most all of which are light target loads). And as if that weren't bad enough, there is a small paper on the ammo cabinet that reads, "To ensure equal distribution of ammunition to all customers, each customer is permitted to buy not more than five boxes per day."

    I do have 9mms, three of them in fact. I hope it works its way east. In the local Wal-Marts (two in JC, Elizabethton and Unicoi) I've seen .40 S&W sporadically available, but no 9mm Luger or .45 Auto for months.

    very little in stock at my local WalMarts. The only 9mm they had was some Swiss RWS, so I picked up three boxes (three box limit still in effect, which the cashier interprets of three boxes total, not just of one caliber). Haven't seen any .45 in over a year.

    I still won't shop at Wal-Mart. Especially for gun-related items. Not until they discontinue their anti-gun policies. (i.e. requiring a concealed carry permit for ammo purchases)

    I had a Dick's in CT ask for my CCW permit. Just tell them it is for a carbine, they get really confused.

    The orange box stuff ~$13.00/50

    .45:
    WWB $32.00/100

    They also had plenty of:
    .22
    .38

    Yes. There's no law in NY requiring you to produce or have a permit to buy ammo, but Walmarts here require it for anything commonly used in a handgun.
    Dick's likes to do the same thing, but if you tell Dick's its for a rifle, they'll sell it to you without producing your permit (Wal-Mart has refused to in the one case that I risked my safety by stepping into their store).

    Businesses doing something beyond what is necessary to protect them from the law that inconveniences their customers is making a statement and essentially telling customers "We don't care about your business." This anti-gun and anti-business attitude makes these stores not worthy of my gun-related business.

    Here in southeastern Michigan Walmart doesn't sell guns or ammo---quit about 2 years ago.
    K-Marts & Sears quit many years ago do to the anti gun crowd.

    I don't like Walmart, but their ammo prices are OK. I can usualy do a lot better online or at one of the local gun shops.

    Around here Cabala's has been running some good deals on ammo. They had PMC .223 on sale for $6.99 for 20.

    Until they start selling reloading supplies I have no need to walk through their doors anymore.

    Then again, I reload now so I have no money to spend on anything but reloading supplies/equipment :)

    Our local WalMarts have plenty of everything except .380. They have always had plenty of 9mm but now they also have .38 and .357. They were scarce for a while. Plenty of Federal and Winchester bulk pack .22s. Plenty of .40 and some .44 and .45. Just a lack of .380.
