Walmart Is Not Ordering Anymore Ammo
Investment Watch ^ | 01/12/13 | Darrell

Posted on 01/13/2013 6:40:55 PM PST by johnsmom

Stopped by my local Wal Mart this morning. They are out of almost every kind of ammo. I asked to talk to the person in charge of ordering to see if they had any information on this subject. The manager I talked to said they had not heard anything…BUT. She tried to order some .223 as I was standing there. She said the order was being rejected by the corporate...

Means better profits for the ammo industry as they aren’t forced to accept a low take-it-or-leave-it offer from Walmart and can sell to other outlets at a better price for their bottom line, which will in turn likely bump the final consumer cost. But that’ll keep companies in business, ammo in the hands of those who need it, and money out of the hands of people who fold like a Walmart card table.

How long did you last there? I made it 9 months. I was in the Meat Dept. (No jokes) One of the most popular things we had were the white 10 lb boxes of hamburger patties.

For a while, we were just out of them. I'd show them the Telxon, saying 'Warehouse Out.'.

Well, can't you get some from the other store?(Two Walmarts in town.)

They have the same distributor as we do, so they're out as well. I'll be glad to call the Meat Manager there, and let you talk to him.

Never mind, I'll go there myself.

I'm sure when he got there he saw another Telxon saying 'Warehouse Out'.

Made the decision 30 years ago to either quit flying or quit drinking, I quit drinking!

That's a bad choice if I ever heard one. Never quit drinking.

The improper use of the word “anymore” is proof this is BS

If Jimmy Carter gave us Ronald Reagan, what kind of president can we expect after this regime?

This isn't your father's America. The moochers, looters and inner city tribal parasites outnumber the producers. The next POTUS will be even worse.

A local hallmark store is going out of business. The owner told me that over the last three years her regular customers and people who live in the affluent areas have significantly cut back. She said, however, that the EBT types are buying as if they have no financial worries. That’s because they don’t....for now.

We just had that replay election, and this time the GOP ran Mitt Romney against Carter, and Carter won.

yes, excellent advice. Now is certainly the time for us all to remain calm and carry on, but be prepared for anything.

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best, work for the glory of God, and pray without ceasing.

Agree with that. If it’s not in the warehouse, it’s not available.

The ranks of EBT people are growing, not decreasing. That is the crux of Obama’s agenda. More dependents = more democrat votes. Why do you think he wants amnesty for illegals? So they can become legal voters instead of having to cast illegal votes.

Just read my tag line and you will understand where the country is headed. We are not unique. Communist/socialist takeovers did not happen in a vacuum. In theory they sound great to the masses. “The rich will pay their fair share and you will share in that loot” sounds wonderful.

In the long run that system fails every time it has been tried. Then a turnaround begins towards capitalism. China now has 150 Billionairs and one MILLION millionaires while during Mao’s regime they had may be a dozen millionaires.

So just prepare yourself for the gradully increasing socialism here. It is like boiling the frog slowly. The masses will not wake up until things get real nasty.

After the 2008 post election panic buying and the Repubicans nominating the second coming of Bob Dole............I stocked up on ammo and reloading supplies, magazines, spare parts et al this past summer. Enough to last me a very long time.

to cut out ammo, means cutting out guns, which means cutting our hunting gear, which is extensive.....if Walmart were to make some kind of "deal" with Eric the Commie Red than its a huge business mistake...

what do I care...I don't shop there....

The order was rejected because their warehouse is empty and all ammo ships to the stores when it becomes available. They just can’t get enough ammo to restock their shelves.

These bastards have been planning for a long time, while Boner and the wimp RINOs postured and did nothing.

Yep. It is no longer a fair game, where each side has four downs to make a first down. The Dem's now have five downs per series. The GOP, only two.

The Dem's understand and take full advantage of this. But the GOP keeps calling plays as if they had four downs, which they don't. Result: the GOP keeps turning the ball over to the Dem's, time and again.

Excuse the football analogy, but it is playoff season.

As astute an observation as it is true!

All merchandise is replenished automatically based on demand and current inventory levels in their inventory management system directly to their vendors.

The very notion of a sales clerk lifting the receiver for that purpose is laughable.

The weenie lawyers in Bentonville are scared of their shadows.

They won’t even put a new tire on a rim because it may have come from a trailer and they aren’t permitted to do that.

Mr. Sam didn’t let anyone push him around. Now it is just a big corporation full of wonks.

I bought some too. Only had a couple boxes left. He said they expect another shipment.

Oh Good Lord, folks at WM do not call in for orders. All inventory needs are software generated. I don’t believe anything about this story.

Most are software generated, but they certainly do call in orders. You can specifically order most firearms.

That said, the ammo is more of a software generated issue as you state, and given how hard it is to come by, it is also most likely a matter of wholesale availability. If it isn't in the warehouse, you can't get it on the next truck.

As a treat, I stopped in at the local BBQ place the other day. I will never be back after seeing a huge signing stating they accept EBT cards. Excuse me, but picking up some bbq is a treat for us since it’s so expensive but apparently not so much for the scum I’m handing my paycheck over to.

With all the flak WM got over that Rosie bs, I’m not believeing the WM story unless they can’t get ammo from the manufacturers.

“Oh Good Lord, folks at WM do not call in for orders. All inventory needs are software generated. I don’t believe anything about this story.”

That’s the reason they’re so big - I studied their methods. You buy something, its replacement is on order from the warehouse before you even walk out the door. When the warehouse is getting low, they order a new batch from the manufacturer, again, before you make it out the door. All stores have satellite dishes and dedicated transponder channels - they are linked as fast as electrons (and radio waves) can move.

Let’s not let the Anti-Walmart union types take advantage of us...

Not in Texas. They can’t keep enough .223 on the shelves to last a few minutes after putting it out. Even lousy Tula steel-cased is being rationed out.

Seems pretty clear to me that Holder gave Walmart a heads up that the treasonous occupier is going after ammo rather than 2nd amendment gun rights. No bullets turn a gun into a rather expensive club.

I also predict extreme mental health screening for permits. For the first time in almost two decades the nation’s psychiatrists are “updating” their guidebook (Diagnosic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) used to diagnose mental disorders. Among the most controversial proposed changes: Dropping certain familiar terms like Asperger’s disorder and dyslexia and calling frequent, severe temper tantrums a mental illness. If a temper tantrum is a mental disorder...we are all certifiable.

Pharmaceuticals have been linked to recent high profile massacres and murder sprees. This has not been lost on Odungo and his hit men.

Too many Americans taking the happy pills pushed by psychiatrists will make them vulnerable to loss of 2nd amendment protection. 1 out of every 5 Americans on either anti-psychosis, anti-depression, or anti-anxiety drugs. 18% of all cops diagnosed with PTSD and treated with the same meds. Epidemic of “mental illness” in active duty troops...top reason for military hospitalizations are “mental illness” in nature.

Mix all this with ObamaCare, forced online medical records registry, and the “Executive Pen,” it begins to stink worse than Al Roker’s undershorts.

Noticed lots of “normalcy bias” in this comment thread....

Back in April or so of last year it was reported that DHS was buying up some 750 million or so 40 cal hollow points. Now, if true, those bullets were not for target practice.

My experience with Gov contracting is that a company on the contractor list bids on the contract. The idea that Walmart and not the ammo manufacturer is selling the Gov ammo is very unusual. As stated,I bought 45 caliber ACP ammo last week. I admit they were low on stock, but; Saturday is when new ammo comes in here. At least that has been my expeience.

Now, hollow points in 40 cal for DHS? Unreal.

Thanks...read that article yesterday on WND. Seemed to me the writer gave Walmart’s response to the ammo issue i.e NOT GUILTY and then immediately proved their response suspect with new “research” independent of the original article.

Quoting new research: “The clerk said they only had what was left on the shelf and that there was a ‘hard lock’ on the reorders. She said they hadn’t been getting any replenishment and that just today the store had received a letter from the corporate office stating that they would not be able to order any replenishment of ammunition, other than some for shotguns.”

“She said they were not stocking anything that could be used in an ‘assault-type rifle.’ I said, ‘This is ammunition I use for practice,’ and she said they were just told there was a ‘hard lock’ on ammo sales.”

Sooo...I guess the truth depends on the definition of “hard lock.” Where’s Slick when ya need him!
