    I have checked Walmart several times, they never have any. Have got 9mm ammo from there for the range. Several friends have said not to buy ammo from them -its supposed to be garbage.

    Actually, one other question too. Are you looking for range ammo or a self defense round?

    I don't know where the armory is. I am looking for both range and self defence. I need to find out where more ranges are also, so far I have just been going to Bob's and A&R. I am still new to this.

    Jenn, The Armory is near the corner of Indain River and Kempsville Rd.,right behind the Brewster's Ice Cream stand.

    There are more ranges around here too. Superior Pawn and Gun has 3...I'd use their range; but, I wouldn't buy anything else there...and that's only for personal reasons.

    I was planning on checking out Superior's range soon, do not like A&P. Do you know if there are any outdoor ranges around? Does the Armory have a range also?

    BEWARE! You must disarm before entering Superior and the employees are EXTREMELY RUDE! They will never get any of my business for as long as I live!

    My only complaint with the range at Bob's is the lack of distance. I'd like to be able to shoot further than 11 meters. Other than that, I'm happy to shoot at Bob's.

    I get my range ammo from wal-mart, never had any problems. It's the same Winchester, Remington, and Federal that other stores sell. And they're cheap.

    Yeah, they are cheap. I have bought some range ammo at Walmart but use different for self defense. It is probably just a rumour.

    I get my plinking ammo at Walmart. Blazer Brass or Federal for 15.95/box-50. I hate and won't buy Winchester unless I am really really low. I have also gotten some Remmington 45 for 18.95 a box a while back. With a limit of 6-boxes makes it hard to stay stocked.

    If you go to any gun store or gun show the price is around 2x what you can get at walmart. Yes I know that Wallyworld is often out but I keep checking a couple times a week. Georgia Arms will take an order and deliver it for free to the next gun show but their prices have gone up too.

    The Yorktown Walmart hasn't had a good supply of 45 but I have seen more 40 ammo there than anything else.

    For Federal 230grain Hydra-shok I bought 200 rounds online at gunbroker.com. I have seen them at Superior Pawn on VA Beach Blvd. Other places have had them very sporatically.

    Most of my guns are 45acp so I am always on the lookout.

    Which Wal-Mart? Every time I visit mine they are pretty much bare. I've hit Woodbridge Wal-Mart as well and they never have any.

    I did happen upon a clerk putting a new case (five boxes) on the shelf - I bought them all since I had completely run out of range ammo. They haven't had any since (they owe me one because they charged me for 6 - their limit even though there were only five in a case).

    I prefer A&P to Superior. They have many more bays, which generally means less waiting. Their annual fees are not bad.

    Check out C2 - http://www.thec2center.com/

    I think it used to be known as Munden Point Range but has been seriously upgraded in the past couple of years. They held an Appleseed Event there back in July, I think.

    Sadly, The Armory is rangeless.

    I also prefer Lynnhaven A&P to superior...Curtis is an old friend of mine and he doesnt put up with any reckless behavior on his range.

    Kingstown wal-mart has 15 boxes of .40, after the 12 I picked up tonight. If you need it, get it now or before 8AM tomorrow, or I'm getting the rest of it.

    So, uhm, you're not going to join the valiant and righteous brothers who steadfastly oppose Wal-Mart's policies and practices and eschew buying anything at Wally World, eh?

    There's a word for that kind of behavior, Wangmuf. It begins with an "s" and is not very pleasant.

    The least you could do is send the wife in your steador something.....



    P.S.Any .45 ammo?
