    It pays to be a gun owner at walmart during christmas :)

    I went to walmart today to do a little last minute Christmas shopping. Of course it is absolutely packed, each register has a 30 minute line behind it...etc. Get done buying gifts and I think to myself...I could use another box of ammo. I mosey on over to the sporting department, ask for a box, and I get escorted directly to the front of the line so I can check out and be removed from the premises as soon as possible :p

    No waiting in line for this guy! I'll remember to just buy a box of ammo every time the lines get long. They are so afraid of ammo purchasers they will cut you in front of everyone to get you out!

    Doesn't work here in FL. They just check you out at the sporting goods register for ammo, then you have to stand in line like the rest for other stuff.

    Thats the way they do it here too, but they will check out your other stuff as long as you dont have a cart full.

    At our Wally, they just check you out in Sporting Goods, which is much better than waiting in line.

    LOL

    LMAO, that is great! Doesn't work here in Idaho at the WalMart :-( Our local WalMart doesn't seem to care if you buy ammo. I purchase it at the gun sales counter, then do my grocery shopping. No escorting here, except if you buy a rifle. LOL

    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.
