"Ammo purchases that are chambered for handguns and rifle are treated as handgun ammo and require a pistol license to purchase also."
I think this is due to misinformation amongst the employees. At the Middle Island Wal*Mart two weeks ago I purchased some Winchester 9mm. The young clerk behind the counter asked me for my pistol license. I have no problem providing it. But before I could get to my wallet, the mamnager on duty explained to him that if the ammunition were for a long gun, no pistol permit is required. HE then explained to him how to use the register to answer the pistol permit question.

When they scan the ammunition, the POS system automatically alerts for a pistol license. I guess I'm saying, don't blame the clerk, blame corporate for shoddy training.
