I went to my local Walmart last week, and low and behold, lots of .22 long rifle ammunition. There were no bricks, but alot of boxes of 50 rounders. So I was going to buy 10 boxes. Nope, what I was told was that from now on, all ammo purchasers would be limited to only 6 boxes of ammo, no matter what kind. Anyone else getting rationed?

That is standard operating procedure at Dick's and Walmarts here. Luckily, I have enough so I've not been effected.

My two semi local Walmart's are doing the same thing. Not a problem, though, 'cause they don't have any ammo to sell anyway.

I just noticed the same sign at a Walmart in Central Square today. When I stopped at Gander Mountain in Cicero, there were no signs.

My local wally had cci mini-mag 100 round boxes. I was going to buy 5 until the guy told me about the 6 box limit. So I bought 6.

It's about time!!!! kfjdrfirii Walmart used to get cleanned out by gun clubs and other greedy individuals. Now, at least, others will have a chance at buying my favorite CCI .22 ammo. For me, it works well in all my .22 firearms......not like the cheap bulk pack ammo!!! :roll: Bob

The only thing is they just send a bunch of people into buy 6 boxes each.I see the little kids from front site in walmart in there little front site suits open carry with there glocks walk up buy six boxes and the next one does the same thing. Its obvious they are not buying just for them selves.
If I wanted more than six boxes I could buy mine then send my woman in for six more and some of her friends.Easy to get around.

I knew that people would get wise to the limit.......but at least it makes it a PITA!!!! :lol: You could go and buy 6 boxes, go out to the car.....then go in for 6 more. There's alot of dumb, greedy, people out there. It doesn't take long to find an angle. :roll: Bob

They're limiting customers to six items per day here. I've been buying all the rimfire ammo and 16 gauge shotshells (no limit on shotgun shells - they're on sale kfjdrfirii ) I can get my hands on. Dove & quail season are just around the corner and I plan on having a bang-up time. While on vacation, I was poking around in a closet in my gun room and discovered a Remington 241 and a 550-1 that I had put away. Heh, heh. Yeah, can't wait for the weekend.
