For now they'll continue selling ammo. For now.

Wallmart hurts America.

Which Wal-Mart was this? Recently I've only been out to the new one in Hamburg and they didn't even have stands up.

They still have guns listed on their web page that you can print out and take to the store.

Is this all Wallyworlds? Or just the metro area stores? I'm still seeing many of the rural area stores with fresh stocks of long guns.

The wally world in Richmond is undergoing a renovation. It looks like it will be using the same displays etc as the new one in Hamburg. As of about 10 days ago they still had long guns and shot guns but they all had "clearance" tags on them that were the exact same price as they were before the tags. I wonder if they are going to stop selling them at this store or not. If they do I'll blame the slow creep of Lexington.

Store in London seems well stocked, no clearance tags. I did not get to ask an associate.

The WallyWorld here in Russellville (Logan Co.) is going to stop selling guns in April. This was told to me by the Sporting Goods manager when I bought 500 rds of 40 S&W and 500 rds of 45 Blazer Brass.

Looks like wallyworld will stop being on my shopping list. First their very low prices on the more common type of guns were so low that smaller gunshops could not compete, and now that there are only a few of the larger gunstores left, wallofchina-mart stops selling guns. I will gladly pay a little more $$ to shop at stores that sell firearms as well as ammo, and many places sell better hunting/fishing stuff.

Sam Walton is alive-
Walmart prided itself on selling products made in America, and they sold guns.

Walton is dead-
Walmart gets away from guns, and many products are from China.

Seems like pride and integrity died with ol' Sam.

<sarcasm>Yeah, and suddenly you're *not* a redblooded testicle-toting American Male if you *don't like* shopping amongst palettes of cheap chinese crap. But hey, as long as they sell .357 sig at a low, low everyday price, screw the small price-gouging shop owner who actually wants to sell it at a profit!</sarcasn>

WTH is wrong you people?

Walmart, its employees and its patrons... SUCK .... in the worst possible way.

Yep, that reloading is starting to look better and better everyday.

And you'd think Wall-Fart, with all the guff they get from the Demorats would sell MORE guns just to snub their noses at them, what's next? Maybe they will hire the Dixie Ditz to sing a jingle for them. They obviously don't know where their customer base is.

We should pettition them to stop selling fishing equipmet while they're at it, think of all those innocent Bass and Bluegill who are tourtured and killed each year with those evil "Poles".

Not any more they're not.

They finally succumbed to the ammo price increases, a couple of weeks ago they were still 12ish a box for WWB 9mm but all the ammo has shiny new price tags.

I wish they were still 12ish per box for WWB 9mm. I paid 14.56 per box in Louisville for the same thing. Hurt my feelings when I bought 10 boxes. yikes!

I went to Buds on-line and got WWB for $10/box and CCI Blazer Brass for $8 /box. Also found Winchester NATO 9mm at Sportsmans guide for around $8 / box. Even taking shipping into consideration, I find buying on-line is less than $14 + per box. Decent luck from both sellers too.

Jambog. It has been posted repeatedly here on GT for months. :upeyes:


It was announced that 2/3 of the Wal-Mart stores were removing firearms. The rest will have only 6 to choose from, according to the Wal-Mart web site.:sad: :shocked:

Was that for 100 rounds? that is what I was talking about. does Buds-on-line have WWB 100 rounds for $10/box?

Only 1 Walmart in LEX will carry guns, I think it was richmond road but it may be the russel cave one. Gun sales just weren't strong enough to have them in all the Walmarts. I mean, all you guys complaining, how many have you bought from Walmart? I know my friends and I have gotten about a dozen but don't plan on getting any more from there. There selection is limited and they're bound to be overstocked.

Ah well, like the usual socialist GTer I should be jumping on the "burn em down to the ground" bandwagon. It's funny how RKBA folk hate free economies. You'd think one freedom is more precious than another! :shocked: :shocked:

Man I love walmart. :hearts:

:hugs: :wavey: :tongueout:

Gun sales aren't strong enough especially in metro areas so they've reduced inventory and sent them to the stores that will sell them and people jump on like they're the evil anti-gunners store of america. Funny, considering they graciously allow CCWers (as long as it is concealed) to shop around. Sounds pretty friendly to me. Oh yeah, they also are stocking more ammo due to the recent (past year's) demand for it.

Meijer's in Louisville used to have 250 rds of Remington gold box for $34, although I haven't seen it in a while. Support capitalism by finding the best price, I guess:upeyes:

Razoreye -

I don't believe that the miracle of Walmart is the result of a free economy anymore that I believe that our country's two party system is the result of Democracy. The United States of America is a Republic with Democratic ideals and an economy that is basically capitalistic - but it ain't a free economy and it never has been. And if Walmart itself owed its success to capitalism and adherence to the principles of a free economy it wouldn't sell tobacco or milk, capisce?

"Liberals think their campaign against Wal-Mart is a way of introducing the subject of class into America's political argument, and they are more correct than they understand. Their campaign is liberalism as condescension. It is a philosophic repugnance toward markets because consumer sovereignty results in the masses making messes. Liberals, aghast, see the choices Americans make with their dollars and their ballots, and announce -- yes, announce -- that Americans are sorely in need of more supervision by ... liberals" - George Will, The Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/13/AR2006091301573.html)

Criticizing Walmart, its employees and its patrons doesn't make me a socialist liberal anymore than criticising the GOP makes me a Democrat. I agree with G. Will on a lot of things. And I admire certains things about Walmart (the fact that they "allow" me to carry concealed in their store not being one of them).

The "freedom" in a "free economy" is the freedom to spend your money where you choose, not where the king chooses. It's the freedom to stupidly sell your sovereignity to transact for goods that have political influence (guns, food, books, clothes and pretty much everything) at the lowest possible price instead of transacting in ways that strengthen your own economic and political position.

But hey, it sounds like you've got a great thing going at Walmart. If ever I walk through the front door of Wally in Lex I'll be sure to return your greeting with a big thumbs up! :thumbsup:

I don't take it personal if you say Walmart sucks but I kinda take it personal when you say patrons and employees suck as well. Anywho... :wavey:

If anyone cares the price of a case of shotgun clays has gone up by a little under a dollar. Why did I notice that? I didn't even buy any of the things.
