We had to go to the store today, and I ran by the sporting section to look at ammunition. There wasn't much left, and I had this conversation with a sales associate placing an electronic order.
K - What's the deal with the ammo? Is there going to be any more or is it getting bought as soon as it comes in?
Associate (with order gun) - I'm trying to order it, but it won't accept it. All the pistol ammo and 223 can't be ordered.
K - Are they waiting for the gun control meeting in Washington or what?
Associate - I don't know.
K - When do you think Wal-mart will get some more? Is it that hard to get ammo?
Associate - (shows me the screen from the ordering system) It reads "No orders allowed from the home office"
So, it looks like the home office has taken all the .223 ammo and pistol ammo out of circulation for Wal-mart. Politics? Backlogged? Since Sam Walton's death, Wal-mart has been against main street America. It has been against the worker, America manufacturer, and solely about the bottom line. Just another reason to get your preps in order - Corporate America is not on your side. Really, it not that surprising? Any other blog readers have some inside information about Wal-mart and ammunition sales? Anyone asked the associates?
Comments are always welcome.
