I would think its better for their buisness overall. If ammo is available later in the day more people will come in and buy ammo and maybe a few more things. Same amount of ammo sold but more other stuff maybe. It's their store they can do as they please.

I like it. Academy here in Alexandria has been doing this for Pmags for several weeks now. I can pick up one for 14.95 every time I go there. They have only been out once when I have tried to pick one up.

Exactly. I was in line one day and heard some of the pricks talking about going every morning, buying all they could and selling it in the afternoon.

Agree.

This is the smart play, from a marketing standpoint.

Good deal.

It's a hike from Mandeville, but I like that store.

Nothing worth a damn at the Hammond Academy.

And this ammo limit still fricking sucks

Yeah, but I'd rather 20 patriots have good ammo supply than 1 hoarder.
That will most likely cave in when shite hits the fan

That's good, keep the crazies from spending all their kids' lunch money on ammo just cause, and regular people can get ammo to use like regular people

Ended up just going to Bowie and Walmart. Found some .45 and 9mm at Bowie and more .45 at Walmart.

good counterpoint but i stand by statement of first come first serve i would rather have a proper ammo distribution along with mags.. but that's not democratic this is 'merica, let the strongest survive hopefully the strongest is red blooded patriots

More like "let the strongest have a closet full of unused ammo while everyone else is unconvinced."

So, purchase, go out and put it in your car and go back in and buy some more....Will they let you do that?
