    The ones around here haven’t sold firearms in 15 years or so. The closes one that sells guns is 70+ miles away. Any savings over what the local fun store sells for would be burned up in gas. And if there is problem with firearm who you gonna get to look at it… a Walle-World stock clerk? :rofl:

    I called Academy Sports the other day about a Sig 522. Really didn’t want to buy from them but no one locally had one. They didn’t either. Their internet site say they sold them. I asked if they could have one sent from another store. Guy said they could not have one sent but I could order it on line and have it shipped to my house. I said no I can’t, (I'll make note here that I WAS talking to the gun counter of the local store) a 4470 must be filled out and a background check done. NOW GET THIS! He saysssssss……. WATE FOR IT…. the UPS driver will do that. I'm surrounded by :stooges:

    FFL at the range had it fore me in two days and he beat Acadaemy's price without me asking. :supergrin:

    No kidding! Next you will start seeing Daniel Defense and BCM there as well. The first time I saw the BM @ Wally World was in Kentucy for the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot. I could not believe my eyes when I saw it in the case. At first I thought it was an Airsoft rifle until I got up close to it.

    Walmart here in Alaska has been selling Bushmaster AR's for years. They still sell handguns up here also which I know most Walmarts don't do anymore.

    Why not? They sell Xbox and even ipads, why not BUSHMASTER?

    Do they have any Beretta, or Binelli shotguns?

    Walmart at Fort Campbell has two Sig ARs, a Sig 522, and a Bushmaster AR.

    I was surprised, to say the least....

    Enjoy that! My local Wal Mart won't stock firearms of any kind. Have to go to the next county to find a Wal Mart with firearms.

    No gun sales at any of my local Walmarts. I asked the manager in the sporting guns dept. about it and she said that the local stores are not on the current corporate list allowing gun sales. Truth or just local decision, I do not know. They do have the best prices around here for ammo bar none.

    Two "ban compliant" Sigs were added this week at my local WM(I live in a non-ban compliant State).

    walmart was reducing their gun supply a few years ago and decided to reverse that notion about a year ago...stores in my area have new gun counters...however I havent seen a bushmaster yet.
