    Walmart to stop selling handgun ammo nation wide

    Article also says something about assault rifle ammo so I assume this means fmj rifle rounds too. This really sucks as its the only place I can get decent priced ammo within 20 miles

    I can't remember the last time I went into Walmart, and this just guarantees I never will.

    From what I heard, they are going to stop selling pistols (in Alaska which was the last place they were selling them. TAKE THAT ALASKA FOR LETTING SOMEONE IN TEXAS TO SHOOT SEVERLA PEOPLE).
    They were also goijg to stop selling SHORT BARRELED AMMUNITION. Special ammo for short barreled weapons??? I have some short barreled guns and have never heard of this special ammo made just for these guns.
    They also will stop selling pistol ammo... Where am I supposed to buy all of my 9mm, .45, and 22 RIFLE ammo now?

    I have some Speer or Hornady 9mm ammo made specifically for short barreled (~2") carry pistols. They are designed to expand reliably as slower speeds experienced from shorter barrels.

    I hope they take a hit like Gillette did, time for conservatives to take their fingers out of our eyes. My wife spends quite a bit every week on food there, time to go to Cub or Coborns. This shit will end when we stop giving our money to them.

    YES, but its the "short barreled rifle ammo" they specifically mention. WHAT could that be? Are they thinking the 12Ga mini shells?
    Do they think that there are little rifles that take the smaller pistol ammo?

    After talking to the guy at walmart last night (while buying 9mm ammo) it sounded like anything even remotely assaulty, 5.56/.223, 7.62x39, .300 blackout, etc. Short barreled rifle sounds like "arm braced AR". I think they will still have .308 but I doubt they will carry anything FMJ so no target ammo what so ever unless it is a shotgun shell because you know, skeet is the only acceptable form of sport shooting. Fuck 'em.

    I was wondering if that isn't something like a bolt action machine gun.... Sounds impressive, but doesn't mean a thing.... Maybe a way of Pleasing the Left without really doing much about it.....?

    I was just in WallyWorld this evening and the ammo is disappearing from the shelves like .22's did a few years back... Starting to look real bare in there now.

    Did they lower the prices or are they leaving prices the same and not replacing stock?

    Prices are the same. Just not replacing what they sell. I asked a clerk if they were still going to be selling .22 LR and he said they haven't decided yet as .22 LR can be used in handguns, too.

    There were still plenty of .22's on the shelves.

    I picked up another box of 200 .45 ACP and one box of .45 LC today. Kind of hard finding .45 LC even before they decided to screw us.
