It is strange that Wal Mart is more gun friendly than Sam's Club. The other day I walked in to Sam's, and by the front door was a no firearms sign. That is beyond my comprehension level.
If you don't protect your self, who will?
Was in a Wally out of my area, filled a cart, went to sporting goods dept. for some fishing stuff, saw they sold no guns or ammo. Told clerk I would buy nothing from them if that was the way it was and left full cart sitting there. Also, don't belong to Sam's Club anymore. I do still shop in several WalMarts that do stock long guns and plenty of ammo, including cheap Win White box.
So far the Walmarts arround here are gun friendly. I sure hope it stays that way. As a group we could have some influence as to walmarts policy. Every body should write a letter or an e mail at one time to their home office.
Wally world here in Maine is still selling long guns and ammo.
Wally World around my home has some that have really nice gun counters, and some that are taking out there gun counters. Also some that sell ammo but no guns. Two of the firearms I own have come from Walmart, and I have bought a bunch of WWB from them. One of them never seems to have anyone working the gun/ammo counter though, I have left carts full of stuff next to it after nobody came for a few minutes.

I was lucky enough to buy a Winchester 94 (30-30 Win.) just a month or so before the Winchester Factory went out of business. A couple of months later that WalMart store decided to stop selling long guns. I bought it for $280.00 I've seen some of these rifles on firearms auction sites selling for over $1000. I'm glad I bought that rifle when I did. Some other WalMart stores here in Texas still have some long guns available. I've been thinking about buying a Savage Arms, Remington or Winchester rifle from there and mounting a Leupold Scope (which they also sell there) and making it a permanant truck gun. I've found myself being on a friend's ranch before sseeing a Texas Hog or Bobcat out at about 200 yards and saying to myself why don't I keep a scoped rifle with me in the truck?
I agree with buckeye07, sometimes there's no one at the counter when I'm buying range ammo and targets so, I end up going down the road to Academy Sports & Outdoors.
