This is a discussion on K-mart no longer selling ammo within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Originally Posted by ccw9mm Am also surprised Sears hasn't tanked, long since. K-Mart and Sears are one and the same now......
Our local K-Mart closed this past summer. They hadn't carried handgun ammo in years and a poor selection for rifle ammo. Shotgun? - all they ever had was birdshot.

I hope you're wrong. I hope that Sears at least will turn itself around and sell quality products. Old name brands and quality products are getting hard to find. I used to not care as much, but then I realized how much I missed Montgomery Wards. I've got an old Stereo my dad bought back in 71 sitting outside in the barn (with dirt floors) and the thing still works, despite the layer of dirt, humidity, etc. it's been exposed to for at least the 20 years I've had it sitting out there. When one of our tv's break, I go upstairs and get the little tv I bought at monkey wards back in 84 since that thing still works like a champ.
What will we miss if Sears goes under? So much for the warranty on some of my tools.
30 years ago our K-Mart was an outstanding gun store as was the local Woolco and Ace Hardware. Woolco died decades ago, our Ace no longer carries guns and our K-Mart stopped carrying guns and ammo at least 15 years ago. The K-Mart is a dump and looks like the floors have not been cleaned since it was built. I had not been in it in years and stopped because I needed sun block and I swear the place has not been cleaned in years.
A word to the wise isn't necessary, save it for the stupid
Target use to sell ammo, I actually use to sell it to them on a fill in basis as a manufacturers rep. As I recall they just bought key items like 30.06, 30-30, 22 LR and 12 ga. I don't ever recall them having pistol or .223 ammo. They have never wanted men as customers and have always tailored their stores to women shoppers. They cut fishing way back too, they use to do quite a bit of fishing business.
Kmart is accually under Sears Holding.
Kmart hasn't sold ammo around here for quite some time.
Like others, I never go there either.
