    I remember seeing ammo in the Western Auto stores when growing up in Dayton, TX, but never the grocery store. Wow!

    that type of thing was one of the factors in our decision to buy a big Yeti cooler .... while in South Dakota we are 70+ miles from a Sam's and while in Texas at Medina Lake we are a long drive from a WalMart type grocery .... a 140 mile round trip in our truck isn't cheap so usually keep the Yeti stocked so as to minimize such trips

    Every little country store used to sell ammo. A few of these turned into full blown sporting goods stores before the box store thing hit in a big way.

    when I was growing up in the mountains of NC, I worked in my grandfather's mountain grocery store ... while 80% of the store was stocked with groceries, the rest had everything from horse feed to white mule work gloves with ammunition and kerosene falling somewhere in between

    while that is highly likely, the political points aren't appropriate in this thread area .... anyone wishing to start a thread centering on that discussion is welcome to do so in the proper area

    Yep, I have struggled to find .22LR on the shelves anywhere. I found 3 bricks of Winchester 555 in a Nogales, AZ Walmart during our time there. That find will keep me shooting for a long time. I wonder if it will ever return to the time when you could walk in anywhere and find the ammo you want/need on the shelves all the time. I doubt it.

    They always over stock the grand openings of such stores with ammo. Wait a week or so and the supplies will be down and it will be hit or miss from then on to find the ammo you are looking for in stock. Most places have the major ammo on the shelves most of the time, however .22LR and .380 are still hard to find.

    this morning we visited the Cabela's that opened in Garner (Raleigh) last week .... I haven't seen the variety and quantity of ammunition on store shelves for a very long time .... it appears that the ammo shortage is coming to an end .... there were a few empty spots on the shelves but that comes as no surprise with the huge crowds that have been there during the grand opening

    That man could be arrested for aiding and abetting.
