Now I know this is all completely anecdotal, but I am starting to believe that this might actually be the case. Here in my next of the woods Walmart (not associated with Gunmart) is literally the only place within a three town radius where you CAN’T find ammo.
I have mentioned it in the past that where I live the ammo drought is over… long ago over. You can literally find anything and everything to make a gun run. Prices are still a little higher than pre-panic levels, but retailers are removing buying limits and store shelves are literally starting to overflow… everywhere that is but Walmart. Its not just gun shops either. Traditional big-box retailers who I have to assume are using the same supply channels as Walmart are literally busting at the seams with ammo.
So why isn’t Walmart overflowing with ammo? Walmart is the largest retailer in the country and can literally dictate to suppliers every aspect of what is on their shelves. So, why are Walmart’s shelves still barren while everyone in my geographical area is overflowing with supply? Has Walmart given up on the ammo market?
