Yesterday I was able to get a few boxes of 40 at my local Wal-Mart. The women that usually works sporting goods started talking to me about the shortage. During our conversation she mentioned that a week or so ago, a really poorly kept woman (she said she looked like a crack head...her words) came in with a list of ammo to buy. She only had a couple boxes of 9mm and sold them to her. She then noticed the woman go down the isle and hand the ammo over to a couple of guy's. She got leary of what she saw, and called another store to tell them about this woman and her friends. The other store said they were familiar with this same woman, because she had tried to use a list and buy like 5 grand worth (yep....that's what she said) of ammo. She said the same woman came in a couple of days ago, she had only recieved a couple boxes of ammo that morning, and they were hidden behind the counter, so she told the woman she had nothing. Gang Bangers? Just my guess...

Possibly, but it doesn't make sense to me why they wouldn't just buy it themselves. As far as my understanding goes, which is limited, I don't believe there's a check into who's buying ammo. Couldn't they buy the ammo from wally world on their own?

I'm just passing along the story and my guess on the situation that I found interesting.

Ammo for drugs exchanges aint nothing new. There was a bust recently on the border of a guy with IIRC 100K rounds of .223 heading into Mexico. Believe it or not the Mexicans busted him. Military caliber has always been at a premium in Mexico. Lots of 1911 there in .38 super because of it.

If the story is accurate, sounds like the males were not legally eligible to purchase ammo (undocumented, felons, domestic violence convictions, underage, etc). Most of us take it for granted that there are still laws on the books which prevent ammo sales to some people. The sad thing is that these "straw" sales just add fuel to the fire of the Anti's to make it harder for us decent folks to keep the laws gun-friendly. Its too bad that they didn't treat it like a crime (which it may have been), especially since it would have been caught on Wally's security tape. Yea, one or two busts may have made the news and been initially a blackeye for us gunners, but we would have benefited in the long run. If we gun-friendly people did a better job of "self-policing" the real dirt bags who hid in our mists (gun carrying felons and wife beaters) then maybe the Anti's wouldn't have so much "ammo" to throw at us when they try and take away the gun rights of us law abiding citizens.... do our lifestyle a favor - make a gangbanger's life hell.... just my $.02.

The "gangbangers" I've seen buying ammo and generally cleaning the shelves have been by and large middle-agish, a few extra pounds aruond the gullet, khakis and comfortable shirts. You know - suburban street gang types...

Most of the gansta punk wanabees I see in our public schools on a daily basis, would call too much attention to themselves if they bought ammo in person. They get one of their homeboy's mothers to go get it for them, or they steal it from each other, or trade it for other commodities (????). They are too dumb to realize how destinctive they actually look on a hidden camera. The woman bought it and handed it off in the store, all of which was noticed. It is pretty obvious to me that anyone doing something like this is probably doing something illegal. The kids are too young, illegal, have a record or something that wouldn't let them buy ammo up front. With all the other policies Wal-mart has, they should require ID of anyone suspiciously buying ammo too. I know that sounds absurd, but so does having to be 18 to buy gun scrubber or WD-40.
