Default "license" to buy ammo at Wal-Mart

Stopped at the Harrisburg Wal-mart last night to buy some 9mm ammo

I have been only buying ammo there with cash for a while now. Dumb arse kid said he needed to see my license to buy ammo..... I'm freaking 50 with gray hair, refused and told him to call his manager.

Manager said it's company policy.... showed them my "license" to carry firearms in PA. He approved it.

If you were really that peeved, you should have replied with "It's my policy to not patronize stores that insult my intelligence," and left without buying anything.

Default Re: "license" to buy ammo at Wal-Mart

I've bought ammo in 3 different Wal Marts up here and you don't even pay for it at the ammo counter. Throw it in the wagon and pay for it with the rest of your stuff, like a grocery item. (well isn't it)

I was asked once when buying handgun ammo....."is this for a handgun". My reply was "I dunno".

Ah, living up in the NW is.....well....paradise.

Buying ammo in Wal Mart, for the gun you're O/Cing in Wal Mart, priceless.

I was purchasing some 22 L.R. at a Walmart in Hanover. The clerk asked if it was for a rifle or pistol.

Does it matter, I asked?

"Well... you can't by handgun ammo unless you're 21, and you can't buy ammo for a rifle if you're under 18."

Do I look anywhere remotely close to 21? (We both had some gray hair and wrinkles!)
I didn't have to show I.d. though.

I've never been "carded" for an ammo purchase.

Default Re: "license" to buy ammo at Wal-Mart

I usually get ID'ed when I go to walmart to buy ammo, then again im only 23.
No gun shop has ever asked me for ID.

Which is good, Which is bad?
