Walmart. Shortage or political

Post by noname » Mon Jan 11, 2021 4:18 pm

I don't need to buy ammo and am not looking for another gun right now. However while shopping at Walmart today I walked by the what use to be their firearm section. It was empty. No guns. Not a sales person.

Has Walmart joined the "dark side"?

Some Walmarts have stopped selling firearms. They were also going to stop selling ammo in spme of the store, but I think they scrapped that idea. They have prety much suck ed to theLiberals on firearms and ammo. I never did set the bar very high for Walmart.

Can't say about your particular store, but IIRC most Walmarts put the guns and ammo in the back this summer so the peaceful, gentle Democrat protestors wouldn't get them when they broke in and looted before setting the store on fire. Still selling, just not on display.

walmart removed firearms from all of its urban stores, nation wide, in 2020. Most Rural stores still have firearms in the cases.

they also discontinued the sale of pistol ammo and "assault weapon" ammo.


so what they do carry now ammo wise - if you can find any from the shortage - is shotgun stuff, rimfire, traditional hunting ammo (30-06, 7mm mag, 270, 243, etc) that are standard cup and core or all copper hunting grade offerings and a few FMJ training options as well (ie:350 legend 145gr fmj).

Pretty much for the most part rifle ammo thats $1/rd or more


that said - Remington ammo AFAIK isnt being produced right now post-bankruptcy-sale , so there's half or more of the ammo that Walmart carries thats just not available at all for the time being.. I've seen limited boxes of it here and there - but its probably new-old stock that just hasnt sold.

So dont expect to find anything thats not Winchester or federal on their shelves for a minute. Again thats assuming you can get your hands on it before the grubby hoarders and gunbroker resellers do anyway.
