    I stopped by two Walmart stores on the way to work.

    Found some 22LR 550 round packs at the first, so I bought the only two boxes they had. They had nothing else.

    At the second there was no 22LR bulk packs, Almost no centerfire handgun rounds, they had one 100 round WWB of 45, so I bought it. I really would like to have 9mm. I am shooting in a competition in april and would like to practice, but don't want to dip too far into my reserves. I talked to the guy behind the counter and they are getting shipments in at night, but all the 9mm is gone the very next day. He seemed to believe they were getting some friday night, but I am not planning to get out this way on Saturday.

    The more the shelves are empty the more people are going to stock up. I'm doing it myself so I understand. When I can't just go grab 500 rounds and go to the range, I buy every bit when I can get it.

    Visited an Oregon Wal-Mart on 3-3-09, lots of 12 ga and 22LR plus non military calibers like 270 win. NO pistol or mil. calibers at all, shelves were bare and no restock times available!

    I was in Walmart in Houlton, Maine yesterday and they had good stockage of popular calibers, of course this place voted the socialist to power and probably think everything is just rosie.

    Shooter's Express in Belmont, NC has a good selection of just about everything including .50bmg. Of course 500 & 1000 rounds of .45, .308, .223, .357 & some others are selling for premium prices. I picked up three cases of 12 gauge shells a few weeks ago for $270. Every time I go up there I pick up 500 .22 CCI mini mags.

    Try being here in Massachusetts, can not get .308 or .223 in any quantity nor can we have it shipped in. No one will ship magazines either. Every state that abuts us is low as well due to the people form here going there to try and stock up. Whats a person to do?

    hahaha trust me, you wouldnt want this job. Everyday, you sit and think to yourself "Why in the hell does the majority of the general public act like they were dropped over and over as a child." lol

    The guy who was doing the qualifying is paid by our company to come in and do it. The ammo was paid for already, and we all qualified only using half of it... meaning by my math, the bossman doesnt completely trust us to qualify the first time......:mad:

    Anywho, it was almost a full case, one box was missing lol

    What are you looking for? The Gun Rack in Kernersville had a rather large supply of ammo a couple of weeks ago. (all the popular calibers anyway)

    Local WM here in Greensboro has been out of all pistol ammo for..... 3 weeks. Im starting too completely resent even going there. The last time I was there I picked up two 500 round .22 bricks for 15 a brick.

    I just dropped in to the local WM to pick up another round of .22 since I went to the range with the new Ruger MKIII I picked up. I had to run about 300 roundfs through it to make sure it was going to be ok... so me and a buddy went and went through a 550 round box and I cleaned up all the stragglers from previous boxes... Anyway, I went in to get a couple more 550 rounders and the women who runs the sporting goods desk (she knows me by face at least). I got the 22 and she says to me "Do you have any strange guns?" I said I have a number of guns but had to ask why she was asking. She said "I'm about to mark down a bunch of the odd ball ammo." So I had to ask... "Whaddaya got?" It turns out that they consider 7.62x39 an addball caliber. So I asked her how much a box?
    Her: $11.00... she says how much do you want?
    Me: How much do you have?
    Her: I'll have to go out back and check.
    Me: I'll take it... just bring it out.
    Long and short of it... 29 boxes of winchester soft point for $11.00 bucks a box...I couldn't help myself. I've already got more than 1500 rounds of the stuff but I just couldn't let it go. The other oddball stuff she had was 7mm WSM, 44-40 and they had a couple of boxes of federal premium 30-06 for 16.00 a box...

    Anyway, I just had to share that with someone who doesn't look at me funny for stacking up ammo...
