I will tell you here in local Wal-Marts they are selling within 1/2 hour of coming in the back door. They arrive via UPS/FedEx so there is no set time each day nor is there any advance notice. It really is a luck thing to be at the right place right time on these right now. Mine from Wal-Mart here this past Monday came from a Wal-Mart in Virginia. They could not sell them because they came with 20 round mags so they shipped them to Wal-Marts in Texas to sell. Two came in and were both sold back to back within 10 mins of hitting the floor. Could have been sold 2 more times while I was buying mine and doing the paperwork, people were vocal about the fact the store was out of them.

Keep trying and you will get lucky I bet

AS RUGGLES SAID keep looking they are out there , what i did was call 15 stores with 75 miles of me . i called all of them daily .
i took notes
asked when they got them
how many shipments a week

narrowed it down to 3 stores which doing the math showed best chance of scoring 1 . in 2 days i scored 2

sold both this week for 2 grand each . not to bad . i made enough to now buy me a free one

May be illegal... And part of the problem gun owners are having... Just saying with rights come responsibilities...

I picked up an Windham Weaponry SRC on December 18th at my local Walmart. $799.00. Currently they having nothing, but shotguns on their racks.

The price gouging by some online retailers and local businesses is sadly unethical. I know the law of supply and demand, but if you abuse your customers they will remember and shop elsewhere in the future.

You don't need to be a resident to buy long guns in NC. Go buy it!

I went to my local Walmart and they no longer sell gun related magazines and periodicals. I used to pick up a Shotgun News there. So, I doubt they'll ever carry an AR15.

Went to the local Wallyworld today. They have a list of names of people wanting to buy an AR15 . As of today, there are over 60 names! The clerk said they haven't received any gun related stuff after the Killing.

Local Wal-Mart still selling everything firearm related they did before this mess began. ARs are still arriving but in much lower numbers because of the demand nationwide. Supply is the only issue with buying any of this stuff from Wal-Mart, nothing at all to do with company policy.

No list of names being collected for ARs either. I could see that being a mess, "no I don't want the DPMS you got in but don't pull me off the list, just call me when brand X arrives" Too much confusion there IMO.

Send a message via AIM to NickC50310
Im on the email list for all of my local wal marts that carry ars. I went to two of them last week and both said they are still receiving them periodically. If i get the email and make it in time im buying all of them i can. Im really hoping for one of the sig ones. Im not betting on it happening though so im going to get that lmt lower i talked about in another thread. A buddy of mine put me on with his shop today because they had a flat top bushwhacker and a flat top m&p for $1400 each. Pass.

Just a heads up that mailing list is not entirely accurate. Wednesday emails were sent out locally that the Sig400 was in stock at the local WM. Not the case at all. None arrived at all.

Not saying it is never right but I would call before rushing down to the store to make sure
