    Yea for the Colt acquisition. Nice to see a Colt turn up on the forum for a change.

    Mine doesn't even bother to keep a decent ammo inventory anymore. I checked the other day, and they had neither 9mm nor .45 acp in stock.

    Colt's not a bad alternative, though!

    BTW, I'm not a big fan of Wally-China-World, but I have never, ever seen anything like an AR for sale there, and I've been to a few here in Arizona! Your local store must have some inspired management.
    Well "Smitty" you have to remember, this is Florida. The yahoo state, where every yahoo is toting a gun, at least according to the media.

    Thing is...I kind of like it that way.

    Went on Wally World on-line and it looks like they carry Bushmasters in my area. As of now they are all out of stock...

    Nice purchase! Last time I was in our local Wally-World I saw an M&P 15-22 and that same Colt with a few other bolt actions and shot guns.

    Congrats on your new addition! Good price on a great gun. Our Wally World doesn't sell ARs but they are still carrying rifles and shotguns - sorry to hear that some of you have Wally Worlds that aren't carrying FAs anymore.

    For the price point you're talking about, the Colt was a no-brainer unless you absolutely have to have a middy. I'm sure you'll be thrilled with your purchase.

    Have fun and be safe!

    Well...after a couple of years of deliberation, and many, many months of saving, it all finally came together on Saturday.
    I was torn between a S&W M&P-15 M.O.E. and the Sig M-400
    My LGS had the S&W for $1049.00 and the Sig for $1069.00. I left there undecided...

    I walked into Walmart to pick up some dog food, and made my obligatory trip to the gun and ammo counter, and low and behold good old Wally-World has a Colt M-4 LE-6920 for $1097.00

    All I can say is...meet the newest member of my family, and my first "dancing pony"

    Very nice! Congrats. I took the plunge myself. Just this passed Tuesday I picked up my S&W M&P15 Sport in 5.56. I paid $639 and change for it and am happier than a pig in pooh about it. I'm a little bummed about one thing though. I was thinking that the 556 caliber would be a good deer round too, but while at the range yesterday one of the guys said it was under powered for deer. He said I could, or should buy a new upper and go up in caliber if I wanted to use it for deer hunting. He also said that the caliber was mainly designed to be a wounding round and not necessarily a man stopper. This goes against what I read about it; I read that the 556 & 223 rounds were nasty rounds because they tend to tumble on impact which makes for a devastating wound cavity. Oh well, he kept trying to sell me a new upper, but I told the guy rather than buying a new $600 upper from him that I would just pickup a 30.06 rifle scope combo and call it a day. Bass Pro shops has um for $350 or so. He pretty much shut up then and I went about my business sighting in my red dot.Again, congrats on the new AR. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying mine.
