One of the more ingenious inventions to come out during the Great Shooty Things Panic of 2013 was GunBot — a handy little website that trawled through all the online stores to find who had ammo and how the prices compared across different sites. I used it constantly that year, and still use it when I need to find ammo. One website trying to replicate and improve on that site is Gunwatcher. But it’s more than just being a GunBot clone. They’ve gone and done something particularly slick: give them your address and they will tell you if your local Walmart has ammo in stock . . .
Gone are the days of roaming like a nomadic horde from one big-box retailer to the next looking for ammunition. Now Gunwatcher will let you know if the local Wally-world has a specific type and caliber of ammunition in stock before you leave the house. It’s a nifty improvement, and definitely something that we haven’t seen before. Naturally there are still some issues (the site only updates once a day at noon), but it’s something I would love to see incorporate all of the gun food purveyors in the area.
Oh, and they also aggregate tons of online gun selling websites to let you find cheap guns for sale, all in a spiffy UI. FYI.
