    I thought I remember someone mentioning a discount (maybe 10%) when buying a case or more at Wally world....anyone know if this is true? Thanks.

    Haven't heard of that. I'd be interested to find out.

    The easiest way to find out is to ask.

    From what people here have said, just buying more than a few boxes makes the manager come out and grill you on your 'intentions'?

    I've got non-shooting friends who can't understand the reasoning behind buying 2,000 round cases of 9mm. They say "why would anyone need that much ammo?".

    Nothing I say gets through, so now I say "For the Big One" and we change the subject.

    When the wife was competing with her 9mm, we used to buy 1000 rounds of WWB every other week at Wally World. We tried to get a 2000 rounds at a time discount and they said no. No one ever grilled us on our intentions and frankly, its none of their damn buisness what we do with our purchases.

    From what I have heard it is up to the individual manager. I would go in and ask for the manager and see if they would be willing to work with you or not.

    You can try but most Wang Marts have every day low prices so they will not budge.

    I doubt that they'd offer any discounts, since they're the lowest prices already. Well, at least around here.

    +1000

    It's none of their business WHAT or WHY you need that much ammo. You could remind them that it's their JOB to SELL you the ammo and that's it. They don't need to know what/why, nor are you at liberty to tell them or offer any more info than "I'll take xx boxes/cases of your ammo. Thank you."

    I asked a few years back about it and I was simply told they can't move on their ammo prices whether you buy 1 or 100 boxes.

    For some range/target ammo, esp. Winchester white box 9mm FMJ, I avoid Wal-Mart and go straight to Academy here in Houston. No hassles, no evil eyes, no "got to check with the manager" kind of B.S.

    Heck, I'd pay an extra 5-10% just to make sure it wasn't Wal-Mart. What DO they sell that is made in the USofA, by the way. Nothing against the employees, mind you...a job is a job. I refuse to buy "fresh" produce from them, as too much of it is marked as south-of-the-border for country of origin. Why the heck can't we grow our own friggin' food?!

    OK, back to AMMO.... Time to plant a garden AND get some reloading equipment. Now that's the way to shut myself up! :cool:

    Wal-Mart in my area punishes, rather than rewards, bulk purchase of ammo.

    Not only do the Walmarts in my area not give a bulk ammo discount, but they also will add in the charge of the tax stamp price if you want to buy it in the sealed bulk boxes. To that add the fact that they don't even give you a stamp for the charge.

    becuase we are too busy GIVING away what we grow here. To add insult to injury we give it to people that are ungratefull and would just as soon see the US a wasteland.:mad:

    But this is another topic of conversation.

    Back on topic:
    I went to Wal Mart and bought a few hundred rounds of 9mm and a few thousand of .22 and my friend there with me bought a few hundred .45ACP. I was OCing and the guy running the register for me said nothing. The older man standing behind the counter decided he wanted to do the 20 questions as to why I'm carrying a gun and why would I want to, am I police officer, yada, yada, yada......and how he was in vietnam and never wanted to see another firearm in his life. I smiled thanked him for serving and walked out with my arm load of ammo and firearm cleaning supplies.
