Honestly, I don’t even know why this discussion crops up, and yet I’m continually surprised when I find decent shooters and gun folk still buying ammo at Wal-Mart. Don’t do that. Wal-Mart is part of a coalition with Mayors Against Guns – which means that ammo purchases at Wal-Mart will indirectly support a group that is seeking to eradicate your right to keep and bear arms.
I understand that Wal-Mart has cheap ammo. I get that times are tight, and budgets for shooting are stretched thin. But even with times being what they are, and budgets being stretched, surely you could buy ammo from a store or shop that isn’t actively participating in gun control measures. If you must go to a big box store, try Meier. They still sell ammo, and have not gotten into bed with gun control groups in the process. Better yet, absorb a couple of extra dollars in cost, and buy your ammo from a store that services the shooting/hunting/outdoor community like Gander Mountain, Dicks, or preferably your local gun shop. Of course, there are always the online options, like the guys listed in my sidebar, MidwayUSA, Natchez, and a many others.
The point of this is that you don’t have to buy ammo at Wal-Mart – in fact, you shouldn’t buy ammo at Wal-Mart. Call me elitist or what have you, but my hard earned buck is not going to support gun control.
