Ammo Purchasing in Bama

Today I encountered a ridiculous situation purchasing .45acp from Dicks Sporting Goods.....(if the sale price hadn't been quite good I wouldn't have even went there)

Tossed it on the register counter, and the cashier says "are you a U.S.citizen?"...then I had to press YES on the keypad.
Then he had to ask my birthdate, even though my beard has grey hairs old enough to vote.

What a waste of time this was, as anyone that wanted to could press yes and make up a birthdate, regardless of the truth.

Seems to me that trying some criminal control would work better than ammo control.......but that's just me.

They don't sell ammo at the Dicks near me. I don't shop at Dicks anymore

I hate when I go to Georgia and try to get a beer. ID please. My retiree ID card tells them that I did at least 20 years in the military, 30 to be exact, but they still search out my birthday.

I still laugh thinking about the time I bought a 10/22 at Academy Surplus, and the former student who worked the counter had to walk it to the register, then my car.

Yeah, it's a new thing Dick's/Field and stream do.
I bought a savage .17 at Dicks awhile ago. The manager had to come, Tape the boxy, then walk me out of the store while he held it. lol.. Funny part is, Dick's wouldn't survive without the gun sales from what an employee was telling me.

bought some PD ammo, and a buttload of primers at my LGS a few days ago w/no ID or questions.
Then bought a modern handgun w/no background check because they now evidently use CWP in Bama as background.
still had to fill out the 4473, but no waiting on NICS or hassles.

I've never been asked for ID to buy ammo or reloading supplies. With a HCP we shouldn't be required to have additional background check to purchase a gun.
