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.

Just my own theory....Wal-Mart probley sells more and at the lowest price than ANYBODY !!! So yes it's gonna be more scarce overall there. The way they are distributing it also adds to the lopsided availability at different locations.

No matter the size, or volume of sales of a store they all get their ration of ammo. May be a reason my little store in Out-back Missouri has as much if not more than a bunch of Mega stores in a large metro area. Take KC or St. Louis for instance with probley over say 20 Super stores and in excess of 1 million shoppers every day compared to this little store with a population of less than 3,000, and that's in the same sized area. We are getting the same shipment of ammo. My numbers may be off but I don't think by much. Also about 3 LGSs in a 200 sq mile area for those 3000 customers.

If anybody wants some Match .22 Midway has ELEY in bricks from $68 - $210......:D 1 brick limit. But get some of your friends and ORDER A BUNCH....:p The $68 stuff is the bottom of the line but still shoots pretty darn good. No shortage on this ammo !!!
