I’d look pained and say, “Hell, I dunno, Hubby put them on my list!”.

And what’s up with ‘His african-ness’? Did he pull some kind of attitude, or as you said,’Admittedly, he was as surprised. This is new! WTF!’.

Walmart has had a policy for a long time to keep records of purchases of hand gun ammo.

Too many people just waiting for an excuse to get pissed off about anything..........A simple "NO" would have kept your blood pressure down and saved you time from having to post this vanity..........Sheesh

And by the way, if you were paying cash, the FBI, BATF and whatever clandestine organization you fear may be watching you would never have known you were shopping there.

But to be on the safe side, in the future, you might want to consider wearing a disguise.......try this one.

“And what’s up with ‘His african-ness’?”

I wondered the same thing. I have no idea what it means and am looking forward to an explanation.

Just bought some .22LR last week at a Walmart in MN and the just wanted to verify if I was over 18. I’m near forty but still look 21.

We only buy local from Mom and Pops. I don’t care if the price is triple Walmarts. I use to be a M & P and we paid sometimes more than Walmart sold stuff for. Also the Walmart clerks don’t know where the best fishing and hunting is but M & P can hook you up and that’s worth 10 times the price.

come on up to the UP of Michigan there are places begging for people to buy their ammo here and also in Northern Wisconsin. what little snow that fell day after Thanksgiving we had melted. business has been slow for some, due to the dry spell during the summer, unusually wet October, now a low snowfall that will make the lakes dry up more. not enough purchases being made.

I'm happy to see at least a couple other FReepers asking questions about this. Did you also notice this little gem on his first post?

Now we have hyphenated clerks asking us questions about our ammo purchases?

Aren't there other websites for that sort of offensive commentary?

Henry makes a nice one. I've had the .357 Magnum for 5yrs, and it's flawless right out of the box.

Henry "Big Boy" .357 Magnum.

Your problem is that you don’t have carbines for all the caliber ammos

Would it be illegal to purchase ammo for a rifle that you don't yet own but intend to buy at some point in the future?

Rant on.

I’m exasperated with this “boating accident” meme.
Yes, I understand the joke and its basis.
Yes, I know it’s a “wink wink nudge nudge” funny.
It still feeds into an attitude of being ashamed or afraid of admitting to gun ownership.

I didn’t lose mine. Anywhere. Not gonna go into details of what I have.
One of many reasons I bought NFA items was that there would be no question whether I’m “on the list” - heck yeah I am: between that and C&R I’m a card-carrying good guy certified as such by the one group who I have greatest concern to trust me least.

It’s embarrassing to see how many take, however jokingly, the tone of “uh, I lost mine...”
Heck, Charles Barkely fessed up to owning and carrying. Can’t you?

Rant off.

If you understood the purple entitlement class mentality of broward county fl, you would understand the hyphenated comments. I am a minority in this particular walmart. No winks, just observations. And yes they have attitudes. How else do you think debbie ws keeps getting elected?

So Teddy Roosevelt was wrong? He was against hyphenation.

Amen to what you said .........and from my perspective, that applies to any Christmas shopping you are obliged to do. :)

If you think that for one minute these gun conversations online are not being monitored, I think that many honest folks want to laugh it off, tongue in cheek; but what plans do you have for your weapons when *they* come for them.... a cache of Cosmoline [yuck], dessicant cannisters and/or using vapor corrosion inhibitors buried in a sealed large diameter PVC tube?

The people who say they lost their guns in a boating accident are joking.

The people who cache their firearms, do it, and don't say anything.

Amen. My neighbors are where the dollars go. Forgetting service, hospitality and knowledge destroyed many parts of our country. It took me YEARS to talk my wife into understanding “support your local store”.

Even if you could save 40%. You have to drive 100 miles and spend all day shopping. Fudge that!
