maybe it's just me, but i was bored last nigh so i went to wally world to get some stuff. somehow i ended up in the hunting section. lol, remembering that i had no ammo (i went to the range earlier that day) i asked a clerk if i could buy some ammo for my pt111 and he told me they couldn't sell handgun ammo after 10pm! WHY? is the ammo sold at 2pm any less lethal than the ammo sold at 11pm. i did find out that you CAN buy rifle ammo anytime. that confused me! once again, the rifle ammo you can sell me after 10 is less lethal than the handgun?! can anybody explain why this is? because it's really dumb to me!

No explanation....just Wal-Mart policy I suppose. Can't verify since I've never attempted to purchase ammunition after 10pm.

Just tell them you're buying it for your 9mm rifle.

That's not right, could be your state? I purchased some 40 S&W last night at 3:00 am in my local WalMart... last I checked there aren't any .40 rifles.

That seems to be there rule with ID as well. I bought some .22 LR ammo fro WallMart the other day, and the guy said "and it's rifle ammo so I don't need ID".
Last laugh is mine though, we were useing it for the wifes Mosquito! haHA!

I've run into that myself and didn't see the point. Plus it was only 10:30pm....

This kind of crap is part of the reason why I no longer buy any ammo at WM.

When I asked at my local wal-mart why they couldn't sell it to me, he told me it was because more anger/passion crimes are commited after those hours, so they don't sell handgun ammo after 10:00 until 6:00 in the morning.

It varies by store. I bought 200 rounds of .45 at 1:00 A.M. the other night. I've heard of stores in the Pittsburgh are that restrict the hours of ammo sales though.

One WalMart I go to doesn't have the ammo uner lock and key. If I go there in the middle of the night and no one is around, I grab what I need and take it to the registers up front. Never had a problem.

I forgot to test them today, I bought some .38 sp this morning and before I realized it I had handed the lady my DL, that's where the problem started. I recently have shaved my head and grown a goatee, in my DL I have long hair and a baby face. She claimed that it wasn't me (this also happened 3 weeks ago when I bought a gun, same result) so I put my hand over my goatee and told her to imagine me with long hair, she looked hard for a moment and I told her to look around the eyes, finally she was convinced. It was never if I was old enough her beef was that I was impersonating someone. Same thing with the gun dealer 3 weeks ago.

Around here (south houston) you can not buy ammo of any kind from 10pm to 7am which sucks because I work nights so there are times when I do some shopping at 1 or 2 in the morning while on break from work and I normally pick up a box or 2 of ammo each time I have to buy something at wally world. Its just a habit I have now of throwing in a box or two with each purchase and my stock pile is building up pretty fast because if it
