I live in the south bay/long beach area and frequent the I.e. often. I have been to several walmarts that say they do not sell ammo. Does anyone know the method to this madness? Is it just la stores that do not carry ammo? Does anyone know the closest Walmart that does? I live in San Pedro currently.

All I know is Contra Costa, Yolo, and Alameda counties have some stupid ordinance that doesnt allow stores like Walmart or Sports Authority to sell ammo. Sometimes I swing by the Walmart in Dixon to check for MiniMags, they have a pretty low sales tax too. Its only 8.5 or something :rolleyes:

In the IE, I know that the Redlands store does; they are usually pretty well stocked.

I go to Huntington Beach (Beach/Talbert) and the one in La Habra (Beach & Imperial Hwy). The H.B. store probably is better stocked more often in my experience.

Was at the Duarte store today (210 freeway and Mountain) and they stock ammo, but supplies were very low. Some .38 special, 357 SIG, .357 magnum, and .25 Auto were all that were left. In terms of rifle ammo, I saw a lot of .223 available.

Also, they have a six box limit.

WalMart in Cerritos/Artesia off the 605/91, which is also near Ammo Bros and Insight Range, so you can hit all 3 places within 3 miles of each other. I was at all 3 yesterday and got 600 rounds of ammo at walmart, DROS'd 2 guns and went shooting for 2 hours.

Here's some WalMarts. They have a store finder page. Get on the phone and start asking.

In my experience some of those WalMart folks answering the phone at the switchboard have no idea if they sell ammo. Works better to get Sporting Goods on the line and ask the clerk.

The walmart in Long Beach on Carson East of Cherry does. I was just there Friday

The Santa Ana store does not sell ammo. I think the Orange store may be getting ready to follow Santa Ana out of the ammo business. As mentioned previously the Huntington Beach store usually has a good selection. The Westminster store off the 22 on Beach got a new sporting goods guy who actually orders ammo, so they should be getting more ammo in all the time now.

Fullerton Walmart and Orange Walmart sell ammo. But that's only relevant if you happen to be in the OC at the time.

Anaheim Walmart.

I right, I'll tell. I was trying to keep it a secret becuse the supply use to be limited (some still is).

Ones that do:
Lakewood (that's the one on Carson, east of Cherry)
Cerritos (Artesia; not sure if the Target Greatland does [by the mall], but I don't think so)
Buena Park
Anaheim (Euclid)
Tustin
Fullerton
La Habra
Huntington Beach

Ones that don't:
Long Beach - Downtown
Long Beach - LB Town Center
Paramount
Basically any in LA County near areas with known gangs

Now here is what I was holding back on. The Anaheim one has been pretty well stocked in the past (lately it's been iffy). But this is a 24-hr Walmart. Great for 6 AM when I'm on my way to work.

Temecula is a super Walmart and doesn't sell ammo or guns anymore

It would be cool if someone with the skills and know-how made a graphic pointing out all the Walmarts in the PRK with a dot, and maybe color coding the ones that sell ammo with a different color than the stores that don't sell.

I would do it, but I don't have the computer graphics skills or the programs.

If someone out there has some GIS skills they create a map layer that could be exported to Google Earth. That way all anyone would have to do is install Google Earth and they would be ready to go. I'll ask around to my subcontractors, maybe one is a Calguns member.

In my area of the IE, all Walmarts sell ammo. And by all, I mean three. Redlands, Colton, and Highland. Highland tends to have the best selection, and Redlands won't sell it after 10pm. Colton will. I don't know if the Highland one stops at 10.

Wal-Mart in Foothill Ranch on Towne Centre drive sells ammo.

Wal-Mart in Santa Ana DOES NOT sell ammo, although they sell some cleaning supplies.

Wal-Mart in Irvine- oh, wait. There is no Wal-Mart in Irvine. Lame.

Thanks guys. Sounds like the WalMart in Cerritos/Artesia would be best for me as I hit Insight shooting range often and it'd be on the way. I was getting sick of calling stores and dealing with the employees on the phone (who have no clue about anything)

Last time i was at McCarthy, all they had was a little shotgun ammo. No .22s, no handgun ammo.

The one in Pico is closest to me, but due to the 10% tax there I usually go to the one in Cerritos where it's 8% (don't laugh) :)
