    Default New Wally World policy?

    Had to go to my local super wally world yesterday, stopped by the guns and ammo to check on 22 availability and price. Lots of 22 ammo there at decent prices. What got me was notice taped to the bin. New Walmart policy stated that person had to be 21, proof required, to buy guns or ammo. Has anybody else heard this in their local wally mart or is it just mine?
    An Armed society is a polite society.

    Definitely not at mine,they don't even stock or sell ammo.
    There are no pacts between lions and men.

    Not 100% sure and this is just my opinion based upon overhearing a conversation at my local Wally World, it may have to due with out of state ammo purchasers as well as underage purchase liability. I can't recall exactly but I though purchase of rifle ammo was 18 and pistol was 21 so this also might have to do with so many rifles firing pistol ammo. I could be wrong and often am.

    After the Parkland shooting, they changed their policy to appease the social media mob. I haven't set foot in a Walmart since.

    That's what I thought as well.
    Lots of rifle/pistol ammo has a pistol/rifle counterpart. inc .22LR, .380 auto, 9 mm, .40, .45, .357 magnum, 38 special, 44 mag, 45 colt. Probably more not even counting the FN models.
