    WTF! I was in Academy last night looking at some guns with my wife, and I saw a sign that read " MUST BE 21 OR OLDER TO PERCHASE TACTICAL WEAPONS" The Academy guy said when I asked him if it was a law or a store policy he said it was a law. They also would not sell my wife's friend a box of 22 ammo the day before because " It could be used in a hand gun" Well so can 30-06 or 30-30 if you by the right handgun!

    Well no, but the book he was reading it out of did say that I saw it. I'm just not sure if it is a store policy or a new law that I have not heard of. And by the way the Academy at 183A and 1431 has all malor pistol caliber (9mm, 357sig, .40, .45) ammo in stock and 223's, mostly monarch but it shot pretty good out of my 40. Just FYI. :happy0001:

    As long as you state that the ammo is for a long gun you should be fine. i purchased 9mm all the time before I was under 21, thats what the marlin camp 9 shoots. And Tactical weapons for 21 above only??? Somebody at Academy isn't competent

    The 22 ammo I was not there for so I have only heard what they said. They said "If it can be used in a handgun then you must be 21". And the whole tactical weapon thing? WTF is Academy trying to do it's own form of gun control? To the best of my knowledge there is no LAW saying that an 18 year old cannot by an AR 15! That is stupid and if academy wants to do things that way then I will not do business with them anymore.

    Sounds like another lovely store policy.

    Starting to see .410 shotgun shells behind the counter a lot too. Kind of funny. . . . . almost.

    What is a "Tactical Weapon"?

    Sounds like reverse psychology marketing junk to me.
