walmart guns and ammo

my wife works at walmart, today she came home with a tale of how people are acting, reacting while trying to buy guns and ammo.

well it seems people know which days and what times walmart receieves deliverys of their gums and ammo. walmart has not raised the prices of their guns and ammo as much as you see in private gun shops or gun show.

on the delivery days and times walmart is receiving new guns and ammo stock. there are lines that form of people waiting to get first crack at whatever guns and ammo are delivered. while there are some ordinary people waiting to buy these items it seems that many of these people are owners or employes of gun stores. they know when the deliveries are made and wait in line to buy as much ammo as posible and whatever black rifle they can find and take it back to their shops and resell it for a big markup. it is getting to the point that arguments break out between the walmart employes and other shoppers to the point of fighting and security and police being called. most of the arguments are from gun store owners fighting with legit customers about buying the entire stock of ammo. now this is forcing walmart to put limits on the amount of ammo people can buy, 250 rounds total of whatever combination you want to buy. i am not sure if they are limiting the number of firearms you can buy yet.

remember the next time you read a thread about walmart prices being lower than gun stores because they force the companys to cut corners and selling inferior guns and ammo. remember these are the same people that stood in line at walmart to buy their guns and ammo and then sell them at much inflated prices at their own gun stores.

Never let anything mechanical know you're in a hurry.
