    I had to visit my favorite WalMart in Sparta. Gary stepped right up and gave me a hand finding the Federal shells I wanted. Good shells. Good price. Excellent service.

    Yep, looks like a government sponsored ammo shortage to me! Obama sent it all to Illinois! :) Mark

    No wonder there are no shells anywhere else in the US. Their all there in Sparta.

    Everyone, Have a great Grand American.

    Finally a WalMart sporting goods manager who knows how to stock a store. Wish my local store knew how to stock shells.

    I've had 5 flats of AA's on backorder for the last 3 months. I can see why now.

    Reminds me of when I was in the components business back in 2008 & 2009. Obama surge hit and even though I was a dealer, I couldn't get anything. All the shells and most components were going to the "big time" dealers. If anyone thought that the WalMart in Sparta wouldn't have pallets upon pallets of shells by Grand American time; well, I would say you were living in a fairy tale world.

    The Big 3 ammo makers would not burn WalMart. I was glad to see the shells. I bought 10 flats there Wednesday.

    Gary(Sparta Sporting Goods Manager) keeps a nice stock of shotgun shells year around. Of course they don't have near the amount out that they do during Grand time. He also has done an awesome job keeping pistol and rifle ammo of various calibers as well as guns in stock throughout this whole hoarding/shortage mess. This said, we still were left searching for the elusive .22LR of any great amount.
