What are y’all thoughts on Walmart? There going to discontinue the sale of 8mm and 5.56 ammo. I’d love to say that I’d never shop there again, but I know that’s probably not practical.

I will end up shopping there more, I never purchased much from them as far as hunting, fishing or outdoors. I bought a cooler from them and some knives.

I think they are liberal and making a bad choice.

I really hate corporate political activism. I wish companies would just STFU about what their positions are on controversial topics and do what the are supposed to do, provide me goods and services to purchase. If an item is LEGAL and fitting inside their business model, they should sell it.

That said, I shop at Amazon to I might as well keep shopping at walmart. Both offer things I need at good prices, and I would be out of places to shop if I avoided all companies I disagreed with.

I stopped buying ammo at walmart when they insisted on scanning my drivers license for the purchase. No one collecting random data will ever end well for anyone.

Rural King put out a nice gun friendly notice to the public, too bad there are not any close to me. I would give them more business if I could.

Corporatocracy, not a good direction for the US...

The FOP range sells brass 9mm for less than $10 for a 50 round box (its like $9.79) 19.5 cents per round

Best deal I have had recently for brass cased name brand 9mm,, was 15.5 cents per round
can do 17 cents per round most days and 18 cents per round all day every day

When you see that start to change and price starts to hit 21 or 22 cents per round, you know we are in trouble.

I’m sitting here wondering if we will see that since they are stopping selling ammo. Everyone had to compete with Walmart now with them stopping sales will we see ammo go up?

Walmart claims
Walmart says it sells 20% of ammunition in US

I am not sure I believe that or I am seriously miscalculating how much hunting ammo walmart is really selling

Anyone buying in bulk is NOT buying from wallyworld as they usually only stock limited supply of any one ammo these days

I am hoping smaller gun stores and online stores simply pick up the slack and prices stay about the same for anyone with a choice in who they buy from. If you live in CA, you are screwed as they don't allow online sales, so for many there, they had no choice but to shop walmart, it was all they had.

Should be interesting to see
