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.Johnc said:"Ammo purchases that are chambered for handguns and rifle are treated as handgun ammo and require a pistol license to purchase also."
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.
