I don't know what their policy is. I'm just saying that I assumed like everyone else for a month that since the shelve is empty they are out. Since I asked and got some maybe it wouldn't hurt for others to ask at their store and they might get lucky also. I don't love Walmart but since they are the ONLY store in Chattanooga where I found ammo, I will continue to buy ammo there. They also didn't jack up the price.

I have asked before this mess and some was under the counter but only because she hadnt gotten a chance to stamp and stock them yet. They are on order here but not coming in too quickly or very much at a time. I have a good rapport with the two main folks that work sporting goods. I believe them. They are frustrated too.

You must have crappy walmarts. I bought 10 50 ct boxes of Remington 22 lr this morning and 6 boxes of American eagle 223 yesterday morning. 223 was $8 for box of 20. Remington was $2.17 /box. Dont get no cheaper than that. No price increase in 22s or 223s. They did limit me on the 223s.

If you went back there now you would think your Wal Mart is crappy as well as I would almost bet their shelves are now empty as well. You just got lucky and hit it right after they stocked.


Yep

I guess we must,checked 3 and they had ZERO .22,.357 or .243
I can find plenty .357, and .243 NO .22lr or .223

To answer the original question, i dont think walmart is hurting too much...not teetering on the edge of bankruptcy...over lost ammo and gun sales.
Based on the current political environment i believe walmart isnt going to be in the gun business in a few years anyway.

The Walmart in Lexington pulled every firearm and ammo that was there yesterday. They are longer selling and won't give a reason why.
