"Of what use is a gun unfed?" Mahbub Ali, in Kim, by Rudyard Kipling.

I stopped at the Foothills WalMart in Yuma today, to see what was happening with their ammuniton supply.

As you can see, there wasn't much. some 20,16, and 12 gauge bird shot, mostly 7 1/2. I was surprised to see that they had a few boxes of 12 gauge 00 buckshot, at $4.67 for five cartridges.

They also had a couple of boxes each of 7mm Remington Magnum, Winchester 270, and 300 Winchester Magnum. The only rimfire that I saw was some .17 magnum.

Raymundo, at the counter, was helpful. He said that they do get ammunition in, but it is unpredictable, and when it comes in, it goes out very quickly. He admitted to holding back a couple of boxes for customers that buy guns. He did not want a customer to leave the store with a gun, and not be able to get some ammunition for it.
