    Does Walmart have the helpful hardware folks? Think about it for a while.

    Done that for years except these days you can get a case of ammo online cheaper then rolling your own.

    I will say this I go to Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menards, and Ace. Hands down Ace has the best customer service and always willing to help. I really like them.

    Never bought any fire arm crap from Walmart. Can't blame them, their a multinational company who worried about thr bottom line. Gun Sales are a faction of thr bottom line that will be eviscerated by any bad press and activism.

    I doubt selling the ammo in the first place never won any good favor from gun owners anyways.

    Did anyone 2A person ever go "hmmm I should go to Walmart instead of Target to buy pants because thet sell ammo and support the 2A"

    NOPE

    But plenty of people will protest and make a legal stink over Walmart's sale of Ammo.

    Support your local FFL, buy shit online... While you still can.

    We don't have Menards here. Home Depot and Lowes are the big ones. Around here Ace Hardware sells ammo, powder, reloading supplies, steel targets and Glocks.

    Don't forget to get your rebate from Mobil One. $12 rebate on the 5 quart jug that you bought. Good until Sept.30th.

    I heard that one shooter had just bought tires a Walmart before driving to where he shot up some people. They should stop selling tires as well.

    On another note, Rural King ftw!

    I was just about to reply to 89 with "Sounds like Rual King around here."

    Clothes
    Oil
    Chainsaws
    Guns/ammo
    Lightbulbs
    Plumbing
    Dog food
    Yard spray
    Pickles
    Chickens
    ATV

    Don't forget the free popcorn!


    Wally World had been my go to, as their prices were the best around. I'll just plan ahead better and order larger, bulk packs online as others have said. LGS just can't beat the prices. I'll go to them for the firearm though.

    in the long run, I dont think it's going to hurt them at all. The biggest, most butt hurt groups of people probably live in small towns where Walmart has run damned near everyone else out of business and they basically have no choice but to spend money at Walmart anyway. My blood pressure goes up as soon as I pull into a Walmart parking lot but where we go in NC that's the only choice for most stuff.

    Ive bought plenty of ammo from them over the years out of convenience mostly but we buy most of ours online in bulk and split it up.

    Is it stupid? Yes. Will it hurt them? No

    I used to buy my Plinking ammo at WM, and my defense ammo from GT Distributors since they are local to me. Now, online sales is where it’s at. Once you factor in shipping, it’s about the same price as WM ammo.

    I've bought several guns at Wally World. Our store was the only place in town that didn't mark up .22 and they could even get 22longs and 223 when obummer was in charge. The manager would clearance guns that had a certain stock life, in order to place new orders. I saved $100s on a golden boy and a 7m. Also saved big on a crossbow there. Rural King rocks too during Christmas, but the lines are hateful.
