I absolutely hate going to a place of business (Wal-Mart for example) and having to ask to buy handgun ammunition because it is kept behind the counter under lock and key, but you can buy .300 Win. Mag., .30-06, 12 GA. slugs & buckshot, etc. right off the dang shelf.:mad: I feel like this is just another attempt at gun control. Furthermore I hate giving any of my outdoor business to Wal-Mart. They act like they want your business for outdoor sports, but then they never carry anything that I want or need. Then if you do buy a gun from them they have a manager walk you to the front door and out of the store before they give you the gun, cause they act like your going to go postal! Never mind that you are carrying a concealed weapon in the danged place. Fort Thompson's is the only place that I have been to lately, where you don't have to ask permission to buy handgun ammo. Sorry about the rant, but I just had to vent. :soapbox:

Thanks for listening.

JR,

I hear ya brother. I guess that's the one thing I liked about MT. The guns and ammo were both out in the open for you to pick up.

I have become quite the expert in guiding the sales clerk to the correct box of shells i need under the counter........because when you tell them everytime it goes like this:

Me : "Box of .40 caliber blazer brass, please"

clerk "Ok"

after a few seconds of awkwardly looking around under the cabinent....

Me: "To your left, a little more, ok down to the second shelf, center, the brown colored box, nope the other box to your left"

clerk: "i need to see your ID Please"

me: :mad:

About the only thing you can pick up off the shelf at the local Walmart are turkey loads and skeet loads. Everything else is behind the counter. The only time they have rifle ammo out is the month or so before deer season starts.
At the local gun shop everything is out where you can put a hand on it. That's the way I like a store to be.

The only thing worse is trying to buy a can of snuff at the checkout. That one really gets my blood to boiling. Try telling the lady which can it is when you can't go back there and show her. I will quit now because that really get's me worked up.

Yeah, I don't see them keeping the kitchen knives & other utensils under lock and key, and the last time I check they don't card you for buying a claw hammer or any power tools, and people have been killed with those instruments.

Just walk through the fishing section, get a 5' rod, walk over to the ammo counter, find your brand, and while poking the box, just say I want dis right here:fit:
