re: went to 3 Wal Marts and all have ammo(Posted by alajones on 2/5/13 at 12:34 pm to LSULEFTY)
I have a funny Wal Mart ammo story.
So my nephew is getting a rifle for Christmas and I was going to buy some rounds for it. I go to the counter and tell the guy what I need and he turns around and starts to get it. while he is doing that, I call my wife and ask how many boxes I should get him. when I hang up, the salesman says he can't sell me these becasue I'm not getting them for myself. Tells me it's the law.
So after a little unfruitful arguing by me I ask "so the only way for my 12 year old nephew to get ammo is to come in here and buy it himself?"
The guys stutters for a second and says "well if he was here with you it would be okay."
Anyway, I wen to Dicks and got it off of the shelf.
Is that really "the law" or just some Wal Mart policy.

It's neither, Walmarx is just notorious for not giving a frick about shooters and not really caring to sell them anything anyway. Should have asked for the manager and then the posted sign saying they would not sell.
