    Years ago, walmart was competitive on pricing. Then came the ".22LR shortage" and the "9mm shortage" and the two box per person limit. At that point, it became INCONVENIENT to shop at walmart. I go there for household items, as mentioned above, but now I don't even bother looking at their ammo. Truth be told, haven't purchase ammo from them for at least four years. Maybe more. There are a lot of other sellers on the internet offering good deals on the ammo I want.

    I don't shop at Krogers because they own Fred Meyer and stopped selling guns and ammo at those stores.

All the “gun” stores sell it for more like $20-21 plus tax for the same amount. More importantly I could get a 150 round pack of 124 grain winchester Nato 9mm for about $28. Short of buying in bulk at sg ammo and such, I couldn’t find aything that even remotely compares to that price point. So I for one am hoping that story isn’t true. Going to suck a bit for me otherwise.

    I have bought a lot of ammo at Walmart for that same reason. I buy a box or a few boxes at a time. So this is the cheapest way for me. But I buy ammo at other places too. For target practice Winchester white box and Federal are cheap at Walmart.

    Unlike other places during the ammo hoarding period Walmart did not raise their prices. I stopped at a gas station in Michigan that had a gun store in it. They had bricks of .22 LR for $75 for one brand and $100 for a different brand. Talk about price gouging. When people stopped hoarding ammo and quit buying it to resell at rip off prices, I found it hilarious when all these assholes got stuck with ammo they overpaid for.

    Everyone who says they won't shop at Walmart because they stopped selling certain types ammo, how many of you still buy or sell on eBay or Amazon? They are anti-gun.

    But do you really count gas stations as viable places for ammo purchase? I know gas stations sell food but I don't consider eating out in one or doing my grocery shopping there.

    The ones I saw price gauging were typically the ones who don't do any sales to begin with. More of a hobby business than an actual firearm business. There were one or two legit stores but they were the exception not the rule. At the hight of the panic my LGS was giving away 2 boxes of 22 with every purchase of a S&W 15-22. And all the stores around here put a limit to prevent resellers, hoarders and to let as many people as possible purchase.

    There is one guy who will buy from Wally world and resell at his store at a substantial markup. He'll even sell you individual rounds if you don't want to buy the box. But he's been doing this forever. He's what I call a hobby business. Has a storefront, displays and some guns. The tags are worn and ink faded, guns are slightly dusty. Every once in a while he'll stumble into a sale.

    I still see occasionally boxes of ammo with panic prices on them but that's at gun shows.

    Never. There's nothing there I need that I can't get anywhere else. eBay was cool for like 30 seconds when it first came out and I think I bought 2 or 3 things off of there. But there is truth in the general statement. It is getting harder and harder to find a store which stays out of politics. Im not asking them to agree with me, only to be neutral.

    And Walmart is to ammo what a gas station is to food. It's there but not why I go there.

    Just read Walmart’s banning conceal and open carry in their stores as well?

    It was an actual gun store in the gas station. Had guns for sale too. People were selling ammo at rip off prices at gun shows too. A friend of mine would go to Dunham's every week when the truck showed up and wait to buy his limit of .22 LR. Sometimes he took someone with him to buy more. He would turn around and sell it at a higher price.
    During this time I bought ammo at Walmart, Dunham's and one gun store. Another gun store near me has very little ammo and a different one near me did not exist at that time. The one Walmart near me has a good selection of ammo. .22LR, 9mm Luger, .380 ACP, .38 Special, .357 Magnum .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .32 ACP, .30-30, .223, 5.56, 7.62x39, .300 Blackout, .308 Winchester, a lot of 12 gauge, sometimes .44 Magnum, and many other calibers. The common handgun calibers and shotgun shells are available in different brands, Winchester, Federal, Remington, and Perfection. This one has some aluminum cased ammo and also some hollow points. It depends on the store. Some Walmarts sell more ammo than others. Some sell guns, some do not. The Walmart I got to a lot has a lot of knives too. In the fall they sell muzzle loaders and accessories for them. This one also has a lot BB guns for sale. I used to not have much ammo on hand. I used to buy it when I went to shoot. Now I have some stocked up. I have many calibers of guns. So when people were hoarding .22 LR, .223, 5.56, and 9mm Luger, I bought .45 ACP, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, 7.62x39, and 12 gauge. Those were almost always in stock. And I did not overpay.

    They are not banning it. They are ASKING people not to open carry. Walmart does not care if people conceal carry. As long as a place sells guns they can not stop people from carrying in their store.

    Only open.
    "And Walmart will request that customers no longer openly carry guns into its 4,700 US stores, or its Sam's Club stores, in states that allow open carry. Walmart will also continue to allow concealed carry by customers with permits in its stores."

    However, the CEO is calling for common sense gun control, and....."Congress should debate re-authorizing the assault weapons ban and expand background checks."

    eBay is still handy, especially when you're looking for discontinued stuff/harder to find stuff. I've searched all over for harder to find things several times and then hit eBay as a last resort and there it was. Thoroughly run down feedback, and caveat emptor. Other than that, eBay's screwed me a couple times but I've also screwed them back. It's not hard.
