    :eek4: :wtc:

    Went in last night, saw the two gun cases EMPTY.
    Luckily they're still fully stocked on ammo.

    Thats both of my local wal*marts now that don't sell guns, but still sell ammo.

    Made up for it with a 2 hour lunch @ the range.

    Buddy brought his sig 226 in .357sig, I may have to pick one up. He put ~100 rds through my XD45 & USPf 45, and a couple hundred rounds through my cx4 storm (9mm)

    All in all a good range trip, place was pretty much EMPTY when we got there & left. one dude at the other end shooting a 10/22, but that was it.

    I'm sad to see it happen, but I'd only ever bought one gun from them. So long as they keep selling ammo, I'm okay with it.

    I still buy most of my guns from one dealer (my usual dealer)

    They stopped selling guns here after there were clerks selling guns without any background checks or following standard FFL procedures.

    they build a new super walmart in jacksonville fl and it doesn't have guns at the ammo counter but they do have the book full of all the rifles and their prices so it seems that it they might still might order them (when I walked up it was open to the bushy AR)

    This trend will unfortunately continue. Until lobby groups and the far left liberals force Wal Mart corp to pull all firearms related items completely.

    unfortunately wal*mart will look at this on a purely business level

    is selling guns and ammo and taking that modest profit worth the added bad publicity and perhaps overbearing regulations?

    I never have and never will buy a gun from Walmart...I don't even really like buying them from Academy.
