I bought a couple hundred rounds of .22lr the other day, and the lady working the sporting goods asked me how she can tell if the ammo is for a rifle or a pistol. She was confused when I stated that there's really no way to tell, other than to ask the person.

Funny thing is that she rang it up as pistol ammo. Turns out the logic of the register is to ask if the ammo is pistol or rifle, then to ask "Check ID 18?" or "Check ID 21?" and then go about its business. If something already has checked ID, it won't check ID again.

Wow, I feel old. I remember saving up all of my allowance to go to the local Cook's department store to buy as much Remington .22's as I could carry ($0.60 a box, on sale.)

(No, I didn't walk there in 5 feet of snow, up hill both ways. )

Wal Mart and their store policies.

Years and years ago, a friend and myself brought a case of paintballs up to the register in the sporting goods only to be told you had to be 18 to purchase, we were 16 or 17.

We drove "down the street" to the paintball store and picked up what we wanted.

I can't really blame Wal-Mart too much. It is a CYA society nowadays. We do have a free market. You can always go somewhere else too. I would rather spend a few more (read reasonable amount) dollars at a mom and pop shop than throw my money at Wal-Mart. Yeah, they are convenient, have usually stock a far amount, and are cheap; but the don't know all applications for a specific caliber. If you want to try and teach 'em good luck. You could always save yourself some heart ache and run to that mom and pop shop or even go online.

FYI, the Walmart in Fallston won't even let you look at the knives in the case.

I wrote a letter to the Manager, we'll see how that goes. I sure hope they don't have the same stupid policy when they get the guns in the case finally.
