    I am looking for a Weatherby rifle that is sold only by Walmart. A lot of the Walmart stores in my area have stopped selling firearms so can anyone tell me if their local Wally World still does. I know you all go there looking for ammo.

    Not all Wallys sell guns. Even there web site says check with each store, guns not sold on line.

    Time to start calling Wally worlds and ask for sporting goods section.

    What I am looking for is a Weatherby Vanguard Synthetic in .257 Weatherby Magnum with the desert sand stock. I saw one back in November in the Columbia store off I-26 near the mall. They tell me that stock was a special run just made for Walmart. Now they have reduced their prices down to what I think is a real deal but I cant find one in .257 Mag. Anybody see this rifle, Please help me. Thanks.

    Can't you still view the guns online and then try to select the appropriate store(s)?

    I believe both of the Walmarts in Florence still sell guns. The one in Rockingham, NC does.

    Here are others that you, ((the OP)) could also check...you could also try 411 to get listings for the Walmarts/

    Wadesboro, NC
    Laurinburg, NC
    Hartsville, SC
    Myrtle Beach, SC
    Conway, SC
    Greenwood, SC

    There should also be quite a few within hours of you. The good thing is that there are Walmarts almost everywhere. If you are determined enough, you should be able to find one.


    GOOD LUCK

    When I tried I could view the guns, but not which stores had them in stock.

    I believe this is the gun you want from Walmart http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5057171

    If so, all you have to do is order it on-line and pick which store you want it sent to (a list of available participaing stores will be listed). You can also talk to you local Walmart and ask if they can special order it. My dad did that a year ago with a Walmart in Charlott, NC and it was no problem at all. They shipped it to the store and he was called when it arrived and he went to pick it up.

    Good luck.

    I have visited or called most stores in upstate S.C. and each one that does sell firearms has a few of these rifles in stock in other calibers just not .257 Mag. I was told they can not order any more of the desert sand synthetic stocked Vanguards for one reason or another at each store. They said since they were a special run made only for Walmart that my only hope was to find a store with one in stock and they didn't offer any help finding one. It seems like they are not very gun friendly anymore.
    I guess I should have bought the one I saw back in November even though it was $100 higher then.

    Thanks to all of you for your help!!!

    Can you find out what the SKU number is for the model you want? It'd be real easy to check with that. It's takes the "dufus factor" out of checking. I'd check the stores in this area if you can get that.

    This is what one store clerk told me it was -
    VWT257WR40
    Weatherby Vanguard Synthetic
    .257 Weatherby Magnum
    Desert Tan - stock
    Matte Blue - metalwork

    Again, Thanks for your help.

    The Wal-Mart on Augusta Road in West Columbia sells guns but the one that is less 6 miles away on Bush River Road in Columbia does not sell them.

    Not sure of the wallys in SC, but here in NC I live in the Greensboro area, and I believe we have.... 5 total.... none of which that I know of sell firearms anymore. Which is a pain in the butt, but its okay, as long as they don't stop selling ammo they will be "ok" in my book.
