You can buy more than a Dr Pepper, a bag of Doritos, and a Butterfinger from a vending machine these days. In any major airport, travel center or hotel, and other places you can purchase charging cords, headphones, phone accessories, electronics, toiletry items, toys, pet food, jewelry and so much more. Vending machines these days can even make you a hot fresh pizza and serve it up with a frosty milkshake or hot fresh donut and coffee!

So you read the phrase 'and so much more' right? Well, now you can add ammunition to the list of things you can purchase from a vending machine. Yes, there is a vending machine that dispenses ammo and it's located at an indoor gun range in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Convenience At Its Finest

CBS Austin reports that the vending machine, located in an unnamed indoor gun range is called 'The Ammo Depot', will sell 50 rounds of bullets to customers once inside the gun range just like any other vending machine. The range placed the unique vending machine inside the range so that customers wouldn't have to leave the secured area and go to the retail counter to purchase additional rounds once they ran out.

Security In Mind

To access the vending machine, would-be customers will have to be inside the gun range. You won't be able to get access to a machine like this at your local 7-Eleven. Those that can access the machine have already been screened and shown the proper credentials to make a purchase like this. In addition, there are security cameras trained on the machine constantly.
