So I am in Walmart today purchasing a box of .22 ammo and the clerk asks me if I am buying it for a pistol or rifle? What is the purpose of this question...can one kill you any better than the other? I answered rifle of course...but I was thinking...I have both and what difference does it make. Please enlighten me. Thanks

All I know is that there are more rifles that one thinks with this dumb question.

Depends on your age and I've also been some place (don't recall where said place was) that they had to log sales of pistol ammo but not rifle.

Because by law you have to be 21 to buy handgun ammo, 18 for rifle/shotgun ammo.

^^ What they said....but also because the little computer popped it up and they had to answer to keep scanning stuff and probably wouldn't know if you told them "rocket launcher" as long as the computer would keep going.

They are required by company policy to ask the question. They're required by ATF regulation to ask if there's any possibility you might be under 21.

They freaking ask for ID here if you appear bordlering on spray paint as well. Dumber than asking about ammo if you ask me.

If I grew up today I don't think my parents would have let me get a license till 18 if I couldn't have been the person they told to go get this and that for home and the business at age 15.
