    Have not shopped in a K-Mart in over a decade. They don't care for my values and I don't care for their taking political positions. Hope the chain classes and fails.

    I wouldn't know if they continued to sell ammo or not because I don't shop there anymore.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    In my area we still have a bunch of them. I guess they are doing pretty well here. I know Christmas season their parking lots were full, not as full as Walmart, but full. Last month in December 2012 I went to several Kmarts in my area and they had some rifle ammo for sale. I bought a few boxes of 3030 ammo for $8.00 a box of 20 !!! I also bought some target 12 guage shells, box of 25 for $4.80 !!! God Bless

    Interesting how Target seems to get a pass on this though. At least some K mart's still have something on the shelf currently.

    Why not? K-mart gave in once to the anti's and now they are doing it again. I hope they close all their doors.

    Re: K-mart no longer selling ammo

    A company characterized by years of bad decision-making. They likely won't be around much longer.

    I haven't been in a Kmart in years. If I had remembered they sold ammo that would be a reason for me to go. Now there's no reason whatsoever.

    BTW - I bought my first gun there in ~1974. A Marlin Model 60 22LR for about $50. Still have it today.

    Many people don't remember or don't know the history behind K Mart. They were founded in the early 60's by the S.S. Kresge company, which was a chain of 5 and 10 cent stores, dating back to the 1890's. While the idea was innovative and well received, through mismanagement, they failed to keep up with the market. Unlike Walmart, under Sam Walton's management, kept pace with the wants of customers. K Mart stores became crowded and trashy, and they never did anything to alleviate the problem. The quality of their products and services suffered and people turned to Walmarts for their shopping. By the time someone woke up in the company, the lid was already on the coffin and the nails were driven. A last ditch effort to save the company was ill advised. Sears was already failing and on the way out when K Mart decided to buy them in hopes of saving themselves with the merger. Kind of like throwing a drowning man a cement block to hold on to, in hopes he can float with it. I'll be very surprised if K Mart/Sears last another 5 years.

    Weird. I was under the impression they had went bankrupt and out of business years ago.

    Oh well. I didn't realize K-Mart was still functioning.

    Last time I went to K-Mart was 2 years ago when I was desperate to find a tree stand to hang in the middle of deer season. (Had a new spot and I really wanted a stand there) They were sold out just like Wal-Mart and the others around, I did notice they had some ammo but not much of a selection. Other than that I never shop there.

    K-Mart can't afford the cost of suppling ammo, the shipping costs are pretty expensive, and like others have said, K-Mart is as good as dead. It is sad because Sears merged with K-Mart and tried to survive under the K-mart brand. They have tried to survive under the name K-Mart, Sears Essentials, Big K, Sears Grand, etc.

    They only way they will survive is to replace the board of directors and gets some SMART business people in and totally remake the business if it is not to late. Otherwise will totally die. It is to bad. Years ago I had the opportunity to buy a .22 rifle marked as a Sears and Roebuck. They were asking for $50 for it, I should have taken it. It shot straight, but could have used a better different trigger.

    They've been doing that for 20yrs and more.

    Same basic downward spiral happened to Woolworth's as they disappeared.

    Am also surprised Sears hasn't tanked, long since.
