    That's what I do too.

    It would be a shame if Walmart basically gets out of the gun business. They've always been gun friendly and since they started carrying WWB, I've haven't seen anyone that can beat their prices, Who's got ammo cheaper that $11/100, new factroy 9mm ammo.

    If this happens, it appears to me we're loosing an ally.

    That's what happens when the founder dies and his "educated" kids take over: cheap Chinese crap and liberal ideas that trump quality and common sense. Private gun dealers for me, need to keep the money in the community.

    Same here and +1 for Tangle.

    I buy my range ammo at Wally for $11 per 100 for my 9mm. I get 500 rounds for $55. A price I have yet to find online or anywhere else that can meet or beat that price. I have found places close but with shipping and all the other BS and hoops to jump through to get it, still does not come close. I wouldn't go to Wally for advice, I just go there for price.

    There's never anyone at that counter anyway. I was there earlier today and it took me asking 3 times to get someone so I could buy a pocket knife. BTW, I got a Gerber of some sort.

    Where I live wally world has quite a bit of shooting and hunting supplies. When deer and duck season starts is in, we've got 4 damn rows of hunting stuff, one of which is almost solid shotgun shells and rifle rounds. Theres a decent selection of shotguns and rifles all the way from .410 to 3&1/2 super mags,to 7mm's to 30-06 to .22 rifles. The guys that run the desk are pretty knowledgeable, and 2 I know have their CHL and carry even at work. There is even a pretty good selection of reloading supplies, trap throwers, clay birds, gun cleaning supplies, not to mention all the ammo that I need, etc... I would be real upset it WM stopped carrying all this.

    Nobody at my 2 local WMs know anything about firearms. Once we had to get a manager so thay my friend could buy .22lr for his Marlin. We were both over 18 but not 21 yet. Once I figured out that the employees weren't all that savy when it comes to firearms I pointed out the was ".22 Long Rifle" and would only work in rifles. They fell for it and my friend was able to get the 535 round box. I now get .22 at my local gunshop but still buy WWB 100rd 9mm for $11.95 when I have someone thats over 21 with me.

    LOL !!! That's rich. I don't live all that far from Nathan67 and the Wally World here is much as he described. Nice selection of Remington, Marlin, Winchester (so far), and Ruger rifles and a fair selection of ammo. In fact, with the current store remodelling, it appears that they've increased the selection of long guns. They've certainly increased the shelf space for ammo.

    Like everyone else here, I buy my plinking ammo at Wal-mart but I also try to buy from my local gun dealers. I fear the day Wal-mart has run those smaller dealers out of business and then quits selling guns and ammo. I LIKE having firearm specialty stores in my community and know that they won't last if people shop at Wal-mart instead.

    I remember when Wal-mart sold handguns over the counter. Then they went to special order only. Then they quit selling handguns altogether. If it weren't for the independent gun dealers, there'd be no way to buy a handgun after Wal-mart quit. I don't want to see that happen with long guns and ammo.

    brolin - seems after all the comments that in fact WM has considerable variations country wide. From near nothing, to actually quite a lot of stuff.

    This part of PA is about 70-80% I'd say - not the most I have heard of but pretty adequate stock really, considering.

    Only other (big) variable is the knowledge (or not) of the folks serving in sporting goods

    So I just got from Walmart--my CHL came in today, and where else was I supposed to go? Anyhow, I was talking to the clerk in sporting goods and a couple of guys who were looking at a 20 ga Charles Daly pump. The clerk told them that all the guns would be gone tomorrow. He said that people were coming tomorrow to pick up all the guns. He said that Walmart will still sell ammo, but his understanding was that it was becoming too much of a hassle for Walmart to maintain an FFL at all of its stores. So as of tomorrow at least the Walmart nearest me in Houston will no longer carry firearms.

    One of the Wal-Mart's near me just removed ALL of their firearms as of today.

    The displays were completely empty with a sign reading "To our customers: This Wal-Mart location will no longer carry firearms."

    This is the Wal-Mart at Preston Rd. and SH 121 in northwest Plano, TX. I called two other Wal-Marts in the area and they still carry long-guns, but told me that as of June, they will no longer carry any!

    Wow. Sad.

    Same here, I buy the 100 round value packs of .38spl. and .45acp when I'm heading to the range but I buy my guns and carry ammo from my usual gunshops. If nothing else, I'd rather support my local shops (and economy) with my firearms dollars.

    Wal Mart

    Heck no body can compete with Wally World on price. Where as a Dealer I buy 2 or 3 of something they buy a train load. The WW ammo is exclucive to them. Heck they sell there guns cheaper then I can buy them for. But like most have said sure ani't gun smart at most . As dealers we sell service with or weapons which is our only saving grace.
