“American Rounds, a United States-based company, has launched automated ammunition vending machines in Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas. The kiosks are designed to make bullets ‘more available’ to gun owners by allowing them to purchase rounds at their convenience. The company’s website states that these machines are as user-friendly as an ATM and can be accessed 24/7, eliminating the constraints of store hours and long queues. The vending machines employ advanced AI technology, card scanning, and facial recognition software to verify a buyer’s age and identity. Customers can select their desired ammunition via a touchscreen interface, scan their ID, and collect the ammo from the machine.” (07/08/24)
