App for Walmart ammo

Sponsored Links
There is a Walmart app with a refined search it will tell you when they have handgun ammo and what it costs. Thought you'd like to know.

I just found out about this from a store manager this AM. The ammo scalpers apparently have been using it. Now I know why I am always coming up short.

I have the app for Android, but it seems that it does not show all calibers and/or round counts for each manufacturer. Some manufacturers aren't even shown at all.

I've had store managers tell me that just because an app says it is "In Stock" (and it shows "In Stock" when it is loaded onto the truck) doesn't necessarily mean they will get it in. I've found the store managers' claims to be mostly false.

Here's what it looks like. I've had people tell me to keep my mouth shut about the app, but I'd rather help out my fellow shooters.

The iPhone/Android app is the standard Wal-Mart app available from the iTunes Store/Play Store.

When you launch the app, click in the search field and type in what you want to search for:


It will then bring up a listing of matches:


You can scroll up and down and choose what you are looking for:

This screen shows you if it is available at your home store (you can set your home store in the settings).

If you click on the Store Price and Availability it will show you all of the stores in your area:


The one caveat to this app is that a lot of people use it, and when they see "In Stock" they line up early. Only once have I seen something In Stock and been able to walk right in and buy it without waiting in a line (it was for Federal 9mm in 50 round count). I'm not sure how often it updates but it is possible that it will say "In Stock" for a few hours after they have sold out of whatever was received.

Just wanted to let people know about it. Take it for what it's worth.

Used the app to find ammo on my way to work this morning. Got my 3 box limit of Federal 9mm with no waiting in line. They still had 6 boxes left, too. The app works.

website showed "limited availability" on 22 boxes of 555rd bulk .22.

No dice. No "in stock" items at either of my Hells...erm, walmarts.
