We got the press release a few weeks back and we told them that we were in for some.
We have not heard back about when this ammo will actually be available.

We're not sure yet- like a Zombie itself- we haven't seen it up close yet.

It looks like the rifle ammo may be V-Max while the handgun and shotgun choices may be Tap or XTP variants.

As we learn more, we'll post it in our "new products" or "now in stock" threads.

We've been told that this ammo is on the way to us and will be here next week.
We'll carry 9, 40, and 45; .233 and 7.62 x 39; and 12 ga. Pricing will range from $16.99 to $21.99 for rifle and handgun; 12ga. will be $11.99.

It's not here as of today ... bummer.

But we'll hope for tomorrow- if it arrives tomorrow or Monday, we'll get it out to all 14 stores next week.

Hopefully, I'll have good news for you tomorrow... :43:

Our Hornady rep is telling us that Hornady confirms shipment of 7.62 and 223 last week; no update or ship date for other calibers or 12 ga. in that message.

If... big if... we were to have any shot at a big quantity of this stuff, that might be possible but it looks very unlikely- way too much demand and way too little of it right now.

We are going to move some around from a store or two where sales on some calibers are a bit slower. Leave your name with a manager at either store and have them call you when it arrives.

What's the story on this? IS it the TAP or just marketing?

okglockman
12-06-2011, 6:06 PM
Will you all carry the ammo in your guns and shoot it....or just keep it for conversation pieces? Are people seriously buying to prepare for zombies? It's an odd marketing scheme, but it sounds like it's working.

12-06-2011, 6:10 PM
If it's standard ammo, then shoot it and refill the box now and then lol

i called the Signal Hill store and tried to leave my name so they can call me when they get more 45's in, but i was told i couldn't and it was basically first come first serve, i guess i'm going to have to try to pick them up somewhere else, the holidays are coming up

We got surprised by a small shipment of 9mm this last week and far less than what we ordered. Only a handful of stores got some; contact your local Turner's, if they don't have some, they can get some for you from a store that may have some left.

Wow, I'm surprised they were out... as of my last post in this thread (1/14) they had a whole self full (in front of the ammo table - visible right as you walk in the front door)...

Norwalk will take care of you... if you want to be on the safe side, Jesse or Rich (or I'm sure any of the associates) will hold on to one for you... Maybe I shouldn't speak for them - so if you call them, they probably will save you one (great customer service over there).

Yeah, they were out, I asked; second time too...sigh

Agreed, they do take care of us (I've been very happy thus far)...Norwalk is my store, Russ, is my go-to but Rich, Wayne and Jesse have helped me when in need. I guess I never thought about asking one of them to hold something for me...:o

If your in there as much as I am, we probably have been there at the same time...ha. I'm there at least once a week, if not more (not taking up space or telling stories :facepalm:).

I'm usually in & out relatively quickly (depending on time of day)... but yeah, It's likely we've been there at same time :D

I never thought about asking them to hold anything either, Jesse knew I was looking for some ammo one day and next time I was in he said "I have that ammo for you"... NICE!!! Then recently he sent a PM letting me know he sourced something I was looking for (but had already purchased) and had additional ammo I asked for... just one of those above and beyond things...

Norwalk is much of what has made me more of a Turner's fan - plus the fact that Turners in general has taken huge steps in being a leader in customer service... I think the forum participation is a HUGE asset and something not many others are doing... it's a novel idea and one that really has catapulted Turners reputation!
