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...

While the NRA met with Biden on January 10th...ERIC HOLDER met with WALMART. It appears the Holder/Walmart meeting was quite a bit more "productive" than Sloppy Joe's.

My personal opinion is that it is not a smart idea.

It may be rejected because they can’t get anymore from the supplier.

At least I hope thats why and that its local.

I shop at Walmart all the time. This is reason to stop.

Problem is, Walmart only cares about those EBT cards the get refilled the first of every month.

They don't make that much money off the working people. It's the EBT people that they cater to.

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.

I don’t believe this. I live in the South and Walmart makes a boatload of money down here during hunting season.

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

This same story reappears all the time.

My bet is the order is being rejected because there is no ammo in the distribution pipeline.

The government probably bought it all up.

All the guns I was interested in buying are out of stock. Me and my brothers were going to go shopping after Christmas and everything all of us was interested in is sold out. Some of the stores have updated their websites to explain that they could be out of stock for a long while. I am not even talking about any of the rifles on the ban list. People are going into these stores and just buying whatever is available at this point. It’s panic buying in some places.

Not true. Wal-Mart IS still stocking ammo, but it is selling so fast manufacturers can NOT supply to retail outlets.

Crap! I just bought some 45 ACP at Walmart. My wife asked me why I hadn’t bought double. She’s a wise woman.

walmart was low on ammo the last time i puchased there. it could be that they just can’t get any right now (due to obama’s threats). however, walmart needs to be watched closely and rebuked (boycotted) if necessary.

This is true. I worked at a Walmart before. All ordering is computer generated. That little handheld thing you see employees carrying around can tell you everything about the item just by scanning the UPC. It's called a telxon.

Ammo is listed on their web site and available at my local store per their web site.

It would be a crazy decision to make. if they are so afraid of Holder as to do this they’re a risky investment.

But I’d have to see proof this report is true.

Methinks Walmart is more apolitical.
No point in ordering ammo when it’s sold out and massively back ordered everywhere. If cops can’t get it, a discount retailer won’t.

Ditto that.

Department managers don't know from one week to the next what'll show up for them to stock the shelves with.

Not saying the story's impossible, but it's highly doubtful.

Nor do I. I’ve heard this same rumor repeatedly over the last few days, almost word for word. Conveniently, they never have a link to anything official. I have a hard time believing Walmart would drop all of its ammo orders at a time when people are buying like crazy.

And why should’nt they? EBT shoppers care less about the prices since they are spending your money and mine. More profit potential for Wal-Mart, who is in the business to make profits, not philanthropy or justice. I noticed the same trend at Grocery stores. The EBT shoppers buy $200+ at a time and have their carts loaded and overflowing. We only buy sale items and bargains.

I work there. Ammo came in on Thursday truck. Two things about a manual order.. it will say warehouse out if that is the case or the store itself can be on “no manual order” status. The second one is the most likely case. After Christmas manual orders are pretty much taboo. Store needs to clean up the backroom so it relies solely on point of sale ordering. If you notice a lot of empty sidecounters, POS ordering is the reason. As far as catering to EBT sales.. yes of course. 47% of grocery dollars are now supplied that way.
On vacation but I will check as soon as I go back, but nothing has been said about cutting of ammo in Ohio stores.

The Democrats knew many months ago that if Obama got reelected that gun control was going to be a top priority during this term. They knew there would be a run on guns an ammo and that is one of the main reasons that every agency bought millions of rounds.

One term of Jimmy Carter gave us Ronald Reagan.

One term of Barack Obama gave us Barack Obama.

Sadly, the tipping point has been reached and we are a different country now.

Holder probably said -

“help us out. Stop selling ammo for a few months. And we won’t push a union on you...”

I sent a letter thanking Walmart for their commitment to its shooting customers. (There is a letter writing campaign going on). If they enter into any premature agreement with the government they will be losing a giant piece of their business as gun owners tend to be very loyal with their family purse.

With the stupitiy of the current EBT voters and the well greased fraud machine, what do you think?

Factor in amnesty creating millions more democrat voters.

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

You are absolutely right! Everything on the shelves is scanned into their computers and when it is scanned at check out it is recorded and reordered, if stock is getting low, and the corporate office decides to continue selling the product it will be reordered. It is a little more complicated than what I just described but no employee at a Wal-Mart store can just pick up a phone and place an order. Heck even the Temperatures of their coolers and freezers are monitored and controlled by their corporate offices.
