    Hi guys, What's the best on line place to buy ammo that doesn't require a copy of your drivers license? Is there one? I've read somewhere that there are some on line stores that allow you to purchase ammo if you pay with a credit card. Is this true? I've been a victim of credit card fraud in the past and that scares me from using a card on line, but I definitely wouldn't want to use a credit/Debit card AND give a copy of my photo ID with all that info.

    Um... Most reputable ammo houses will require some proof of ID. It's not a big deal unless you are using a debit card. The ID is transmitted separately from your transaction and unless you're being hunted by some very resourceful hackers, your safe.

    Safer than credit card over the phone, safer than sending a check, and safer than a money order (you have some recourse with a CC).

    Don't use your Debit card... Hell probably best NOT to have a debit card, cause if scumbags get hold of that they can really screw up your life for a week or so while all your bounced checks get cleared up and you're done wrestling with your bank.

    I like Ammoman for my 5.56, I've used Ammunitiontogo in Texas, and Outdoor Marksman, all with good results.

    I transmit my ID via Fax or email, then order stuff online through the retail website. Works like a champ.

    +1 ammoman

    I've used both ATG and ammoman and neither have required a signature or drivers license.

    ammoman.com has fast free shipping, first rate company and great prices. You just have to order 500 or 1,000 rounds at a time for most ammo.

    Interesting, Ammoman is pretty firm about "requiring ID" or adult SIG required. see link ID requirements.

    Same with ATG.

    Not a problem so long as there will be an adult to sign for the package.

    It's probably because UPS knows I'm never home, and has a good place to leave it. I'm on a dead end so I really don't get much traffic...

    Although I never had to sign at my apartment, either. Guess I'm just lucky.

    I've gotten a lot from Sportsmansguide. They have been the cheapest I have found so far. BTW, it took me awhile to type this because I was absolutely mezmerized by Zombie's avatar.:D

    ATG seems to have good prices, never required any ID and ships fast. Been able to get things I wanted there when no one else had them in stock.

    I've used ammoman and atg and never had to do anything other than check a box that says I agree to the policy. I just got some from ammodepot.com as well. Excellent service from all 3. Extremely reasonable shipping as well.

    Thanks for all the great replies guys. I used my debit card on line probably 100 times over the many years with no problems but just a few months back, I got screwed. It took my lousy bank about 3 weeks to get our money back. Just about everything we had at the time was in our checking account. Mortgage payment, car payment, money for bills, food, gas etc. Man was I pissed.

    Anyway, unless my local gun shops or Walmart get some .45 in stock, I may have to "bite the bullet" (no pun intended) and order on line. A friend at work suggested that I use one of those credit cards you can get at the supermarket to use on line. Makes sense. They have them in all different dollar amounts. That way, even if someone gets the number, there won't be anything to take. Scum bastards!

    Thanks again everyone.

    Gotcha, I've learned to never underestimate the value of being on good terms with the UPS and FedEx delivery guys.

    I just ordered this from ammo to go:
    50rds - 12 Gauge Fiocchi Reduced Recoil Nickel Plated 00 Buck = $32.95
    100rds - .223 Centurion Military Contract 55gr. FMJ Ammo = $37.95
    500rds - 9mm Federal American Eagle 124gr. FMJ Ammo = $114.95
    It was about $20 for shipping. Not bad all and all given the prices I have seen elsewhere.

    BoA has a pretty cool feature that lets you basically create a one time use account for whatever amount you designate. So every new online purchase uses a different account number. Even if someone gets that account number there's no money to take.
