I got my very first pistol of my own at Walmart from grass mowing money when I was 14 (mom made actual purchase) My last purchase was a Colt 6920 for $889 several years back. Used to be a thing before Sam died and the rich liberal spawn took over.
Those were the days when Walton still used a lot of independent truckers to keep inventory in his stores.Back in the 80's I did, but in those days Walmart sold ARs, Mini-14s and handguns.
A few of my shops customers hauled for him and some even got paid eventually.
I kind of avoided buying from Walton in those days. Now I shop there when I am on the road when other options are inconvenient to access.
