  • What about the laundry detergent? Check.
  • We can not forget eggs again. Check.

Oh, we need to stop by the ammo vending machine on the way out.

It seems bizarre, but ammo vending machines are coming to Colorado.

Checking Identification in Colorado


One of the first thoughts I had when I heard about this is how in the world is a vending machine going to be able to verify age and other requirements needed in order to buy ammunition.

You have to be at least 18 years old to buy ammunition. Will the vending machine be able to do this properly?

The vending machines will use ID scanners. Fox says that the scanners are the same ones used by the Transportation Security Administration when you go on a flight.

Additionally, there will be face scanners to verify the identity of the person purchasing the ammunition.

It is wild to think that you can not buy hard alcohol in grocery stores in Colorado, but you will be able to purchase ammunition soon.
