The limit at big-5 is five boxes per caliber, for anyone considering checking them out too.

I was in line and saw boxes and boxes of .45 ACP Federal bulk pack, Winchester White Box, UMC 250 count and others. The shelves were full again! I was in a panic since I wasn't sure how much money I had left in my account and how much I could afford and hoping the guy in front of me didn't buy out the whole shelf!

But, it was all a dream. YES! This whole ammo-shortage, hoarding thing is making me have DREAMS of finding ammo! Ugh...

I need to start re-loading. And, I can't believe I just admitted to this on a public forum.

Just came from the American Canyon Walmart. Just like the lighter, Zippo! No .22, .45 or 9. But they have 12 gauge.

Wow!!! This is great news! Rumor has it that Big 5 is supposed to be re-stocking this morning too! Hopefully, this ammo shortage will be old news by the end of the month.

Oh wow. They added some. There were only 3 rows 4 high and two deep of the 9mm. Out of that 24, I bought 3. Anyhoo, more the better. Go get yours!!

Anyone know if they happened to restock the 100count WWB 40S&W?

Hopefully they still have some by 3 or 4 of 9mm. Coming from SF wish I lived closer. Was their any of the hydra shok left? If they are restocking it I wonder if this is the order that they had told me they had placed about two weeks ago for the 250 boxes of WWB 9mm. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I was in there about 11ish today and they had about a dozen 9mm WWB 100rd boxes after I bought 2. Price was $24.47ea+tax. Maybe 2 dozen of the same in .45 for about $40+ per 100rd box. No Federal 12ga birdshot at all, only 20ga. 3 box per person limit still in effect.
At least WM has something at close to reasonable prices. Has anyone looked at Palmetto lately? NO 9mm or .45 in FMJ at all last time I checked.
Shoot 'em if you got 'em!

I don't know what shoots a .22 WMR, but Mountain View WM had that, and expensive 30-06 and some 270 Win.

ie; 2/11/2013 at about 1PM, MV WM out of everything "normal".

As of 15:30 this afternoon, they are out of the WWB 9mm. However, they have about 20 boxes of 9mm Federal 115gr FMJ (50/box) at $13.97. I grabbed 3.

Went to Big 5 this morning. No new ammo stock there. Still pretty slim pickings in terms of 9 mm, .45 or .22. The nice lady I spoke with said they get their shipments in on Wednesday.

Edit: When I was at USI in Concord this afternoon, the range master made an announcement over the loudspeaker saying that they now had .223 in stock! Also, when I first got there, I noticed a handful of people in line just buying ammo! It was fairly busy for a Monday too! Nice day for a shoot!

I was at the American Canyon walmart this afternoon. They had some Federal and Winchester 5.56 (I bought 3 boxes of the Federal for $8.97/each). Looked like they had a bunch of 9mm, some .45acp, 12 gauge shells, .30-06 and more. No .22lr, though.

The 9mm and 45 fly off the shelves. Is the .40 typically one of the last to sell out?

if we were clever men we'd find a way to put an IP camera on that case so we could simply check to see when it was stocked

Dude! Have you ever stopped to wonder just how Valegian always seems to instinctively 'know' when the ammo is being stocked? His 'inside-guy' isn't a guy at all. It's a bunny rabbit. Yup! The ones with the real BIG eyes! Next time you're at Walmart, just check out that bunny on the shelf right next to the counter! You know...the exact same rabbit you have in your living room... Nah, just kidding! (Kinda creepy though right?). LOL!!!

It IS smack dab in the middle of the High Tech capital of the world, so you'd think someone would know how to do something like that. Drones maybe???

When did my life become so pathetic that I would consider driving 45 minutes for a (slim) chance to buy Federal Ammo @ Walmart?

Sigh
