Here in Indianapolis Indiana they (Walmart) also limit you to (3) three boxes, but the three must be different, you cannot buy three of the same type.

Sure it did. I bought my first handgun in Jan 2009 and I've been able to build up 10,000 rounds per caliber at $200/1000 for 9mm; $250/1000 for .40 and $300/1000 for .45. These prices were common as recently as six months ago. If you're patient, these prices will return.

I'm glad that I don't live in Indy.

I live about 10 minutes from a Walmart and attempt to stop there every day in hopes of getting a few boxes of .38/.357, 9mm, or .22lr. So far I only managed to score 3 boxes of 50ct Federal 9mm. I managed to snag about 420 rounds of 7.62x39 before the 3 box limit.

Every time I go in Walmart, they are sold out. They say they get 9mm in a few times a week but it's always gone. I couldn't figure out how I always miss it, figured the sporting goods guy must call his buddies. A lady yesterday said that if you go on walmart.com, you can get email alerts when it's in stock. She said they line up at 7:00am when sporting goods opens and clean it out!

cadillacguns..."Here in Indianapolis Indiana they (Walmart) also limit you to (3) three boxes"

Pretty much all over NE Ohio stores have signs up limiting the amount of ammo, bullets, powder and primers you can buy.

With all the panic grabbing that has been going on most stores don't want to loose their regular customers because of a few people who grab up all their stock.

The shame is I see these people at gun shows selling ammo for much much more than what they paid for it. I'm all for making an extra buck or two but what I've seen is just criminal!

Sorry for the rant... climbing down off my soap box now.

Last Friday, I saw some Blazer Brass 9mm online for $13.99/50. Long gone now though.

Stock comes and goes. You need to check often, but it's a helluva lot easier to check online than drive to WM.

I know exactly which Walmart you're talking about, because I was there as well! Needed some range ammo for the weekend...450 rounds later I was quite happy!

So there is a lot of Obamaphobia in NE OH.

SCmasterblaster..."Obamaphobia..."

Perhaps that is one way to describe it, toss in some plain old greed and mix in some folks totally unprepared and you might have a pretty clear picture of this.

Again I can not hardly blame any gun store for implementing such a rule. From their vantage point it makes perfect sense.

I remember Kent, OH - home of Kent State University. I was living in Brook Park, OH when the four students were shot.
