In at the local Wal-Mart at 1000 this morning. Long after the 0700 run of ammo buyers had left. Rick, the sporting goods Mgr. said they actually had CCI Mini-mags and 38/357.. of course that was all gone. But the shelves were still full of 9mm, Tula in Brass cases, 50/100 rd boxes--still lots of em. Quite a lot of PD rounds in .45, .40 also. The 250 rd packs sold out. Also rows of .45 and .40, Tula, Win, and Rem. Also 100 rd boxes of Tula .223 in Brass for $19, stacked 10 wide/high and all the way to the back of the case.
Rick said the early crowd this morning didn't contain the usual resellers and was really small, only about 10 or so.
I'll credit Wall-mart for keeping ammo and gun prices steady throughout and limiting quanities to 3 boxes a day per customer.
I know the Asst. Store Mgr. and the Sporting Goods Mgr. personaly, and my nephew is the warehouse mgr. at night. My nephew and Rick the SG mgr are avid shooters and hunters and guns and ammo are inventoried and locked up and put out by a MGR and made availiable to "CUSTOMERS FIRST". Employees are not given priority...At this store anyway. My nephew or Rick have not gotten a "single round of .22" since this mess started.
