Walmart says it Corporate policy to not sell ammo to anyone with out a expiration date on a FOID.  I know they can get on the computer and look it up.   But they are not going to do that.                 My question is I have looked at the laws on FOID and CCL as written and the Rules committee notes.   I cannot find anywhere that says FOID and CCL will be on the same card and it will not have a expiration date!!!!!!!!!   Did ole JB and his BOY Kelly do this without any legislative action.    What is next?   No ammo by mail, major chains stores refusal to sell ammo?   They have already driven the maw and pop FFL out of business.   The Legislators are going to have to take action!!!!!!!!

Honestly, thought they didn't carry ammo anymore. 

 

After eliminating local ammo dealers for decades by offering pricing they couldn't match, they chose to not sell ammo for modern practical defense baby killing assaulty guns.

 

Have a shotgun, or a 38-206 Unobtanium? They'll have that.

Could someone explain how the state forced the maw & pop businesses out of carrying ammo?

They are saying WALMART did that.  Though the State's new FFL licensing law did force a lot of Mom and Pop FFLs out of business completely, as they couldn't afford to implement everything it demanded.

Since the Virus, small FFLs have competed and been cheaper than most online sellers all the way until recently. The issue is noone wanted to buy any 9mm ammo above $9/box for the past 2yrs. Now, if you're the guy who shoots alot and buys 2k-5k a summer to shoot steel matches, IDPA, USPSA, 3Gun, I get it. After 3yrs of business, many shooters buy ammo to shoot 300-400rds a year, 8 boxes. In 2019 at the gun shows, I was selling 9mm for $10/box. Guys would say I can get them for $9/box online, ok. You support small business but 3 more boxes of 9mm would last you the remaining of the year but I am "robbing you" because I charge $1 more. Or the guys who say I get them for $8/box if I buy 1K, yeah but didn't say shipping cost you $20. Right now, I am selling 9mm PMC for $18.14/box @ Will County Gun Show, with tax $20. Or $365 case, taxes included, pretty fair. I look at the same websites you guys are looking at and with taxes, shipping, whatever, factory 9mm is going between $350-$380. Many people say they support small business but I lost a sale for $4.11 3yrs ago and this past Thursday lost a sale because I was $5 too high vs RK Guns for a firearm I had in-stock and the customer stated she was within "walking distance." And that was paying the Cook County $25 tax. Sometimes you just have to say, whatever...

I support the small gun shops whenever I can but truth be told, they usually don't have the selection or even the availability places like Bass Pro have.

If I walk into my LGA it's either we have 9mm or we don't. It's not, sure we have 9mm, we have these types, these brands, this one's on sale, etc...

 

Even before the pandemic it was take what we got or leave it.

 

I'll still support my LGA but it would be nice to have more choices and to have prices less than 25-50% over big box prices.

As a home-based FFL 01/Class III Dealer, I have a part-time employee who puts in around 10hrs month. Her full-time job is @ Bass Pro, I am not worried about competing w/their firearm prices, I do very well when I sell at the gun shows and still pretty good when I sell in Cook County. It's their ammo prices that are tough to compete with and online firearm sellers in general. I am glad you still support local LGS, WE appreciate it...
