I wonder what WM is doing w/ the items pulled off the shelves. I sure hope they aren't planning to destroy them.

I never tried to order a gun from WM. I wonder if you can do that Walmart.com?

I don't believe I've ever seen a Walmart with reloading gear.  One of these days the libs will start putting pressure on that too I expect. 

Friday night dinner with the wife and a trip to Rural King though, that's livin the dream Bo!!

Yari - No don't think, Walmart will not destroy any firearms, that would be throwing away profit......figure that would sell them at auction, sell existing stock or eat the restocking fee back to the distributor...and just buy the normal bolt action rifles and shotguns....they may even have a few AR in the back and they are taking them off of display completely....

Mad - On the money, yuppie side of town, the Walmart doesn't have any firearms on display, only a few boxes of ammo at the most, but where I live on the wrong side of the tracks, the poor section, they do sell and have out on display behind locked glasses. I have even asked them for a list of firearms they keep out of site and in the back stock room....the one my wife went to does and have always sold reloading components. Before all the construction and as this town grows and grows, the Walmart we went to last night use to be where the Rural King is today....and they were way out in the boonies back then, but today, they are at the outskirts of town...it's growing their way!!!

Now, there is a Walmart that is about 20 miles north of where we live and was planning on going out there last night but the wife said how bout going to the one where we went to last night, close to Rural King....would like to go into that one, the one that is 20 miles north of were we live at to see what they have on the shelves....

Bo - the Rural King near my home town is also in their old Walmart building.  And yeah, it used to be on the edge of town too but is now swallowed up in the sprawl of that area.   Almost wonder if that was Rural King's strategy, to move into areas in which they were putting up Super Walmarts and shutting down the older stores so they could get business rolling more quickly.  We had a similar scenario around here with the old ShopKo stores for a while.
