    Ammo cupboard’s almost bare

    Ammo cupboard’s almost bare

    From David:

    Greetings from Fort Worth, Texas.

    I was at the local Walmart tonight and thought I’d check out their ammo section to see what kind of selection they carry. I was so shocked at how picked over it was. There were 2 signs on the glass (just barely visible in the picture) that said, in essence, customers are limited to 3 ammo boxes per day.

    The fact that the country is stockpiling ammo isn’t new, but seeing it first-hand was still amazing.

    I know when you ask for pictures you have spectacular results. Consider asking people to submit pictures of their Walmart ammo section.

    No need for readers to send more Walmart ammo photos, but if you saw other stores, that might work.

    I was in Dick’s the day after Newtown looking at the AR15’s because I knew it was now or never. The next day Dick took them off the shelf. I imagine Dick will lose a lot of gun and ammo business. Sorry employees, you work for a limp-wrist, better start looking for other avenues.

    Meanwhile, up here in Ketchikan, Alaska, we have plenty of ammo. Not everything is in stock, but we are not hurting, either. Plenty of rifles and hand guns. Some models are out, but that’s it.

    Then again, this place is just packed with guns and ammo to start with.

    […] Stores are almost out of ammo. […]

    I can verify that is what the shelves looked like at Bass Pro in when I was in San Antonio 3 weeks ago – I wasn’t there shopping for ammo but I did make a walk through. Ditto on reloading supplies.

    Nagels had a slightly better stock, but they were selling it as fast as they could open the boxes.

    Trainer Hale did a great job on hooking me up with reloading supplies, especially powder – but it was going fast.

    Where I live locally, you buy what you can find and get on every waiting list in town.

    And don’t shop at Dick’s – they don’t deserve the business.

    I just finished a 7 week road trip down the eastern seaboard and across the gulf coast then back up thru the midwest.

    Saw empty shelves in walmarts, gun stores, hardware stores and any other place we stopped in that sold guns or ammo.

    Would be scary if not for being stocked up already, just out of habit.
