It's a minor annoyance given they usually have the best price on the ammo they sell when I want to go to the range...so much for convenience...I went by one in Irving today and picked up some range ammo and a couple boxes of JHP defense ammo for a couple of my handguns today....might go over the next few days and pick up some .223/556 before they run out..but we still have the internet, Cabelas (while it lasts), Academy and a few other places. Walmart has been going downhill drastically since Sam Walton is no longer running the show...and I imagine it will continue until one day it goes the route of Kmart and other retailers. I think they believe this won't affect them much...but I have a feeling it's going to affect them more in the long run than they believe. Fuck Walmart.

This will have a huge effect in small towns where walmart is the only buisness and has bankrupt most of the small cottage industries like gun shops who couldn't compete with the bulk buy power.

Fight the monopoly!

On another note this will probably mean ammo prices will go up

I am actually working right now out in El Paso and wrote an estimate for the shot up Walmarts door greeter and the cop that arrested the guy. This town is pretty shook up over it. Everyone is pissed on Walmarts actions.

Ammo sales in general are very very low margin. I bet this doesn't even dent their overall sales profit. They could sell a few more grocery items and easily overtake any lost ammo sales they will have.

Funny, I don't see Walmart saying that they are going to stop selling gasoline or auto parts to prevent car crashes, alcohol to prevent DWIs, tobacco to stop underage smoking and lung cancer, or opioids so people stop dropping dead from overdoses.

I don't expect Walmart to lose any sleep over revenue lost on ammo sales...however I think the customer base they are alienating could cause them a little loss in revenue. I for one generally avoid Walmart unless I have no choice...but after this I may just avoid Walmart period...too many other stores to shop at.

This is all to keep the liberal anti gun people at bay. If Walmart was really against it all they would just take the stuff off the shelf right now. I talked to the guy that works the sporting goods department at my local Walmart and he had a phone conference with the people of Walmart and told them I really hope y'all know what y'all are doing because y'all just pissed off a lot of customers. He also said that they still have another shipment of ammo coming before they stop selling all the handgun ammo and "short" barrel ammo. He even had a calendar up that was blacked out for Tuesday he called it black Tuesday lol.

No because it doesnít fit the agenda. Itís not about protecting people.

I used to buy ammo at Walmart, a box or two here and there. Stopped doing that a few years back and buying bulk. I think the last time I bought ammo there was a couple of years back when I saw they had .22 LR. I won't do that again.

About the only thing I go to Walmart for now except for the occasional time I'm out of town camping and it's the most convenient place to stop.

Love PSA. Have a couple of upper/lowers from them and they run flawlessly. Evil place to browse!

Never bought ammo there, always Academy or online. Academy is a pretty decent brick and mortar place for those things.
