Ammunition is being sold in vending machines available for purchase daily at several grocery stores in the U.S.

American Rounds is the company behind the devices equipped with built-in AI technology, card scanning abilities, and facial recognition. 

Consumers purchasing ammunition must be 21 or older but age restrictions vary depending on the state.

On June 27, American Rounds posted a video on X, formerly Twitter, promoting one of their ammo machines being added to two grocery stores in Oklahoma. 

Ammunition is sold in the machines seven days a week at two grocery stores in Alabama and four in Oklahoma, according to the company’s website

American Rounds CEO Grant Magers tells KOCO-TV in Oklahoma that to get ammunition from the machine, customers make a selection on the tablet, and their ID is scanned. The machine then scans their face to ensure it matches the ID. 

These ID scanners are the same devices used by the Transportation Security Administration at airports. 

American Rounds is adding new ammo machines to stores in Colorado and Texas with plans to expand in Oklahoma, KSBW-TV in California reported.
